I had the DPM guards on my 2012, and ( despite the expense: over $400 Cdn landed ) was seriously impressed.

They saved almost certain 'fatal' case damage in two crashes , so I ordered a set again for the 'new' 2013. On the original install, I did the required drilling myself, and while it worked out, lack of skill and 'hand-held' alignment led to trouble, so this time I got my metal-working friend Rob to do the job for me, correctly the first time.

Feels good to have 'the pro' in place again!

p.s. the only negative comment I can make about the set is that 4 of the OEM case cover flange bolts get replaced to hold the backing plates in place, and DPM supplies quite crappy looking 'plain' machine bolts. we substituted stainless steel hex head M6 bolts; 1 x 45mm, 2 x 50mm, and 1 x 60mm are required.
