I am finally picking up my Pilot next Saturday and would like to have the dealer install mud guards. Since I am paying $350.00 less than MSRP for my ESL, I want to make sure the dealer does not try to rip me off on extras. Thanks
I would not pay more than the amount on the "Build your Pilot" page.
If you can use a screwdriver, I would do these yourself.
They are cheaper from on-line stores such as hondacuraworld, and easy to put on.
At MSRP, they were just part of the deal for me. You can buy them online for $30 (see if your dealer will match prices) and I would not pay for more than a half an hours labor to install (which is probably generous). Or if you can turn a screwdriver, you can install them yourself. There are some very good pictures and discussion of how to put them on yourself (via Copperpoppy) http://www.honda-pilot.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1061
Just wanted to let everyone know that I finally picked up my new Pilot today. Not only did I pay $350.00 under MSRP(dealer offered a Costco Auto discount), but they threw in the mud guards for free. For those of you who are interested I bought it at Honda of Nanuet. I was extremely happy with my entire experience there. Since I live in New Jersey, I was able to enjoy the 30 mile ride back home in my new Havasu Blue Pilot...didn't even kind the rain!!!
