I paid a shop to do it, cost me 100$ and came with a lifetime warranty on parts and labor. This was to do 2 doors of course, not 4 but I thought it was well worth it, I didn't want the hassle of trying something I'd never done before!

I don't think you need new door panals...i have a friend who does it for 100 bucks...and i have a four door. but the thing is he puts the switches in an odd spot...he puts them near the trunk release button..

Would it be easier to find a 4dr model with power locks that is being parted out and get the stock parts off it to install? I know not everyone has access to a car thats being parted but theres one in my area and I wondered how hard the stock units would be to install. Hopefully the wiring would already be in the door to accomadate.
