After reading some of the dealer horror stories here I shudder at the thought of letting them drill holes in the hood of a brand new car, but maybe I'm just paranoid.

Is it worth the risk?
then again if you just want the looks and NOT have holes drilled in your hood just get some appearance pins...same good looks without the hassle of permanently drilling holes in your hood...anyway just an option...these are nice, heavy, well chromed and went on in about 15 minutes
