Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Decent product if you are careful
Just finished installing the covers on my 2013 V6. coupe.
First, the box says product for up to 2013, inside material says up to 2011.
Covers are made of what appears to be a stiff plastic. I followed the directions exactly. the drivers side went on easily, a little grease and careful placement, rocked as directed to get it started but had to hit the center with a closed fist. Thought it would be better than a rubber hammer.
the drivers side "popped" on just right.
did same procedure on passenger side and managed to put a small crack in the outer edge of the cover. The crack is to the rear and not really visible.
I think the material is a bit too brittle and cannot imagine removing without breaking them.
The final fit is perfect. I am amazed at how they cut the outer diameter to accommodate all variations in the sheet metal, and how the top is concave enough to clear the hood.
Bottom line, they look great and clean up the look of the engine bay an amazing amount for just two plastic covers.
