    Price is now $253 shipped.

    for those wondering here is honda hardware i used:

    6 each, 5x20 tapping screws (part no 90114-SE0-A01) and 2 each, 5 mm spring nuts (part no 90331-SD5-003) for the bottom of the rear bumper.
    i opted the for the above tapping screws since they have a floating washer for more surface area to secure the rock flap and less chance of cracking them.

    photos from MY18 install:

    In the classified thread a member asked for pros and cons. I auto-x MY18 and the loose gravel in the paddock & grid was my main concern (which eventually make its way on course). see my list below:

    pros:
    blocks loose asphalt and gravel
    carbon fiber
    flows with body lines
    less obtrusive
    mounts to existing clips and current fender liner hardware
    no drilling of metal (only plastic 4 plastic fender clips which are replaceable)
    no wind noise
    not rally inspired :D
    survives cones

    cons:
    smaller

    Exactly what makes this “official”? Just trying to determine if there is a formal relation to Honda or not.

    Do you need to remove the wheels to install these or can they be done with them still on?

    front you can turn the tires, rear i recommend taking the wheels off not unless you have a small right angle drill.
