      As well as looking better , the original A pillar covers had pealed badly, I am hoping it helps create a better sound stage.
      I like it. Looks really good

      That looks great, my A pillar is pealing, have looked at ways of re-gluing it while in place and have not come up with anything. How did you pull them? in looking it looks like you may have to remove the door seal to get to it? Any tricks or your method, mine is also an 07.

      Thank You

      Here's two youtube videos:

      One of my covers is also pealing a little but I haven't tried to remove it yet. Someone suggested replacing a cloth cover with an all-plastic cover from the earlier 2001-04 models but I can't confirm if this is doable.

      100% true. Shamak found me some and I installed. They are a 97% match and I sometimes forget that I’ve done it. You would be hard pressed to know the difference unless you look hard and touch.

      Thanks, looks like a good idea to have spare clips, I like the vinyl idea for cleaning the windshield.

      Best Regards
