I picked these up mainly because they were on sale, and I liked they way they would have looked in my car versus speakers in the factory setting. The trim color matched well enough, slightly brighter, but then again the plastic in my car is over 15 years old. My main problem was that while the panels themselves fit the car like a glove, the speakers I had would not fit the panels without excessive modification(my speakers were listed as 6 3/4 that fit 6 1/2). Before hacking the panels to bits, I sampled having the speakers in the doors(factory location) and resting where the panels would have been. If there was a difference, I couldn't tell, but the distance between the two locations was less than a foot. I think theses would be a good choice if your car doesn't have speakers even remotely close to the kick panel, or if your selected speakers fit better than mine did.

Color matches well even though finish differs slightly from car OEM color. Sound is great coming from the kickpanels in comparison to the OEM door location. Huge improvement. Cutting the holes to fit 6 1/2" speakers can be rather difficult, but once you're done, it's worth the work.
