Speaking only for myself....and I think I agree with Sackatomatoes ;) on this......I don't think this is an accessory which you'll find cheap. I get the impression (perhaps mistaken) it's relatively popular, and wouldn't think too many sources would therefore be motivated to sell them at a below-market price.

FWIW, my 2012 Limited had them factory-installed as part of the $772 Popular Package #2 which also included wheel locks, floor mats, the rear bumper cover, and splash guards. As a retail sale proposition, I think that's a pretty good price when you factor in the time/cost to install the moldings, bumper cover, and splash guards. However, I'm not sure I'd characterize it as a screaming bargain.

Anyway, I honestly wouldn't like the looks of my own OB anywhere near as much without these moldings; and likely would have had them installed as an accessory had this particular unit not come so equipped from the factory.

I got them for $260 and change awhile back when another joint was running a discount. Some of them are running the holiday sales now. So, keep an eye out.

Make sure you get the right year. The 2013's are different from earlier OB's wrt the wheel arch kit.

eBay has them cheaper than most sites with free shipping where most places gouge you rough.. When you search refine for cheapest price + shipping

The best way is to get it preinstalled. When I was shopping for my car, average cost for Wheel Arch was U$200. I found one plus leather knob shifter for U$250 extra only compared to the one I finally bought because I wanted 110V. I am kicking myself in the behind now.

Many people still don't trust buying stuff on e-bay... because, typically, you have to pay PayPal immediately. If you don't get, what exactly you wanted, even though there is a dispute procedure in place there, it take months and months (from my experience) to have disputes resolved. Its easier, in my opinion, to dispute things with banks than with e-aby and/or PayPal.

I just purchased a 2013 Limited SAP that did not come with the arch moldings or slash guards.

Took the car back the next day to have them installed because I wanted look. I went with the dealer install because they gave me a little break because it was so close to the initial purchase and I get the warranty on the labor.

Just get ready to:spend::flush:, life is good!
