    Doesn’t that block the designed airflow from under the hood?

    haha what a strange bunch we are. Call me crazy but I'm trying to REMOVE unnecessary pieces from my CTR, not add them. :) I'm about to unscrew and remove the trunk floor. I'll weigh it when its out. Less weight and look at all those neat new cubbie holes!

    I bought my 18 at a fair price as I have worked for the dealership for almost 10 years.

    Ha, yeah. I'm rarely serious in here. If you want to see the extremes folks are willing to go to save a lb or 2 then check out the "weight reduction thread".

    Im local, so I picked these up the other day. Fitment is great, but I couldnt get the top clips on both sides to seat all the way in. They are in pretty tight, but not flush like the lower clips. There is one skinnier screw clip that goes to the right of the of the outer clip on the left piece. The hole is a tiny square instead of round like the others. Let me know how yours sit when you install.

    So I guess we're talking what $2,500 ADM, most people think that's fair.;)

    the type r ones are not squared at the top so they dont block air flow to the vents
