I did, and still have the scars to prove it!

What sort of install did you have in mind? Do you have a budget?

The speakers are 5.25", and they're dead easy to get to. The doors can take a little sound deadening too.

The tweets are a nightmare (well they were for me!) so I ended up using some tweeters with surface-mount pods, and just sticking them to the dashboard.

The factory loom into the door is only good for a small amount of power, so I ran some thicker cable from the amp in the boot to some crossovers (which wedge up unedr the dash), and then some cable from those into the doors. I couldn't get through the "connector block" on the factory connection, so ended up taking a dremel to the door and again to the car, fixing a couple of grommets and running some sheathed cable through for the mids.

Are you going to run an amplified system, or just run some different speakers from the stock head unit?
