Description: Looks 500X Better, than cloth.
PROBLEM: The J-hooks on the front edge of the front seats are WRONG. The tooth used to grab on to the metal frame of the seat are on the wrong side and therefore do not grab the frame. The front of the seats are constantly coming undone and flapping down. You don't notice it unless you look. Something I definitely notice.

I would be pissed about it if the leather wasn't so sexy.

Comments: I hate hog rings. If you attempt this make SURE you get those hog rings through the middle of the upholstery flap, giving the leather a tight fit. I re-did the back seat because it was loose.

Comments: SWITCH OUT THE WHITE CLIPS FOR THE OEM ONES. OEM clips give a better fit.
Switch out the LED covers if you want to keep the red look and not an orange. The Metra LED covers have an orange tint to them.
I also threw out the trim piece they include. I bend the Head Unit's metal sleve to hold onto the Kit. This gave a better fit.

Tweeters are smaller than normal, so they fit perfectly into the sails. Just used a little silicone to secure them. (Silicone will come off it I pull it).
In-line Crossover's were a plus, used 3M double sided adhesive to mount to door.
