FYI for all those thinking about installing your own accessories.There are two websites I considered buying from: Cheaphondaparts.com and Handa-accessories.com (only these two because they had the best prices). Cheaphondaparts.com has better shipping prices (sometmies free or $9.95 for entire order) but Handa-accessories.com has lower prices even when you calculate shipping. I put together a list of all the accessories I wanted to add to my Element ($1800 worth) and emailed it to both places for their best bid. Cheaphondaparts.com came through and beat Handa-accessories.com by $100 plus I got free shipping. This will probably only work for big orders, but its worth a try to save a little money no matter what. Installing the parts is a breeze. The toughest ones were the fog lights and the front bumper trim because you have to remove the bumper. But anyone who can operate simple tools can do it all.
