I know it's not authentic Mugen, but it still looks nice. I've been inquiring about this item for the longest time, and finally got an answer.

"Dear danielsle,

I have some in stock, they are custom made one-offs by a Japanese engineer who worked for Honda years ago making these on the side. They are precision made, and measured out precisely. I have a MUGEN set if you want it. It will cost 105.00 plus postage to USA.


thanks,

- uniquecarstylers"

So is it really worth it? Looks nice, but with shipping and all across the world it would be pretty pricey no? :( I'll debate on getting it or not. Just thought I'd share some light on my newest find, which was about 6 momnt

It's hard for anyone to really answer "if it's worth it".
I mean, if that is the only price they are available, than sure I guess.

It's kinda like gas prices.
If all of your local gas stations go up 2 dollars in price, would you still buy gas, knowing that it's 2 dollars less in Arizona?
You probably would.. and you would probably say it's worth it. Why? Because you want it, because you need it.

If this is the only seller, and this is their price, and you wanted it, than you'd get it.

Personally, I would not pay $160 USD for them.
I think I can make them for less.


Is there an authentic of these item's out there? How much are the authentic ones?

I'd only consider getting a unit like this if I had a car that was fully Mugen'ed out, and I show off the interior of my car a lot.
But I don't so paying $160 on these don't interest me.

Would those door sills from King fit our ep3? Anyone has pics of them on the car?

the ones the OP posted would fit 'better'.

I have seen members use the fit one's from king on their ep3's

Yeah ive known about the Fit mugen sills but I dont like them. My brother has a DC5 and his ITR sills are nice. The fit sills wont sit so nicely. Plus the "Get Exciting" and "Ride to exceitment" is kind of cheesy.

from the looks of it it's just a flat piece that is "stickered" on.
However, i remember Siborg saying they might be a complete replacement part.
Me personally I wouldn't mind the gasoline door on the right side... I hardly fill up anyway. I think I can count on one hand the times I've filled up this past year.

I think the Mugen fit ones look the best. I would like to see a picture of them on an EP3. I like the engrish on them too.

I'm not really a fan of type R emblems on a non type R unless it's all done to spec (i.e. motor, body, wheels, interior, etc.).

Makes sense. As I am also into pics for the Fit mugen sills. Since they arent the right size, I'm curious to know what the look like on the EP3. Also, does the Mugen CRZ have it's own Mugen door sill?

They're definitely stick-on. You can see it's not a complete replacement part by the first pic. The reason you're not seeing the gas cap lever is it's a RHD EP.
The fitment on it looks better than the fitment on the eBay one in the OP, IMO.
