Thanks, Tony!

Let us know how they feel as well...i.e., can you rest your left arm on the sill? the current ones jut out too much.

I have no problems with the current ones obstructing. I just don't like the cheap plastic look. The AMG pins appear to be made of stainless steel. The tip with the AMG inprint is polished. The sides are brushed.

WHAT!? The pins are only for the front doors? That makes no sense. That would look just plain silly with different door pins on the front/back.

They should just have the pins fit all doors, might as well keep the whole AMG theme consistent. Maybe we'll see some change happen in the following years?

You can use the front pins for the rear. The removal and installation is the same as the front doors.

You just unscrew them. They're very tight so you may need to use pliers. I wrap the plastic lock pins with a piece of thin rubber to protect it while using the pliers to help twist the pins off so I won't damage them in case I need it for some reason.

Yup, I have them, too. You just grab a corner of a pad and peel it off. Putting them on is a bit of a challenge but pretty much goes on the same way.
