Was thinking of installing the OEM ones over the winter (it's pretty much the only option I don't have). Has anyone done it yet? If so, how difficult was it?

Depending on your level of comfort with DIY stuff, it should be do-able (see http://www.nsxwiki.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/BII03342-01.pdf). I wouldn't do it myself, particularly because of the steps were you have to physically cut apart the existing extrusion and floor carpet. But I do have to say that accessory item is well worth it--they look great during the day (especially if you have the other interior CF items) and fantastic when they light up at night!

They sell for around $1500 with online price of around $1100. If you take your time and are somewhat skilled then it is doable. Does require cutting (no going back) and drilling. I would say around 3 hours plus.

Thanks everyone! The cutting makes me a bit uneasy. Is this something a dealership could/would install?

Yes - this is an official Acura accessory and the dealership will install it, but the better question is do you trust them to do a bespoke job? I wouldn’t, but that’s just me.

I don believe you need worry about the Dealership doing a bad job. The Dealership will not work on your NC1 unless they have a trained NC1 Technician on hand. And that person has everything to lose if they screw up your car. The NC1 Technicians are the best of the best at most all Dealerships.
