hey i had it done. i just said fcuk it and took it to the dealer. im sure if you have a little but of knowledge, you can probaby install the front and back lip yourself, the guy who worked on my car said that was cake, it looks like 30-45 minutes. but the side skirts i would not reccommend trying yourself unless youve got some major skills. when i took it to my dealer, they had to bolt in on, aka make holes in the body. and it wasnt even done completley the first time. when i left, they told me they might be lose and if it needed fixing to bring it back, and i brought it back a week later so they could drill MORE holes.

hope that helps, sorry for the long response

yeah i would suggest it. there is a guy on here who did it himself, but with double stick tape and he says it falls off get it done right the first time, even if it costs a little more upfront, it will save you the headaches. good luck

Another option

You know you could mount them without drilling holes or double sided tape if you just take the sport brackets and tabs used and shave the tabs flat then use some plastic adhesive, etc to mount the tabs themselves. This way it you ever want to paint or remove your sideskirts you can do so without having to drill questionable holes into your chassis.
