Nope, no spacers.

I do plan to go with a bit wider tire once these wear out. I also plan to run maybe 8-10mm spacers with wheel stud conversions.

So when I picked up the trunk I noticed there was a bit of orange peel, which is expected. I decided to wet sand the clear to make it better. Now I have done headlights and small pieces, but never something as large as a trunk.

Before





Starting to wet sand



Not completely done - still want to polish the paint a bit more

Got everything swapped over tonight! Coded out the malfunction warning for the turn signals as well. Life is good! My rear M sport bumper was finally shipped today which is awesome!!

Well today was interesting. I knew of this issue beforehand, but today I started dealing with it. So I installed the front door panels no problem....





but......



The rear door panels could not be installed. My grey rear door panels had the provisions for rear speakers, while these new door panels do NOT.





There is a plastic bracket on the inside of the door panel that the speaker mounts to. I had to pry this bracket (they are glued on) off and will need to re-use it on the new door panel. I will also need to cut the hole in the panel for the speaker. Pain in the ass

EDIT: I'd also like to add a couple of tidbits from this swap. This saddle brown/black interior was from a 2010. Swapping these LCI seats into my pre-LCI car were completely plug and play. Also, these front seats have "active headsets" and are non-adjustable like the pre-LCI headrests are. Annoying lol.
Nice work! I'm going to swap out my seats soon to the sports seats like yours (base seats are boring)
I'll be getting the same black though cause this is to much work haha
looks waaay better though! love the brown

Thank you! It was definitely a lot of work doing the interior. Swapping just the fronts will be pretty easy! Let me know how it goes.

Took a shot this morning

To remove them is just 4 torx bolts and then undoing some connectors. Now going from non-sport to sport is a whole different story. I'm not sure what's needed to do that swap.
