Yes, I ordered 4 lights (2 pair) for the four doors. Other logos are available.

Depends on what you want. I'd contact them directly and ask. They've been good to me.

The hole saw comes with it. Drilling the hole was the easy part.

All in all the whole project takes about 1-2 hours to complete.
Here's a few pics on the light placement and running the wire.

This is the front door. IMHO there is only one place to put it.
That's between the inside pockets. I cut away the insulation.

I used a glue gun to hold the in-line electronics cylinder in place in the pocket.

This is the back door (optional). I put the light all the way at the end of the door panel

I ran the wire through the door boot, down the pillar (with pillar cover removed.) and to the floor.
The light sits at a slight angle in the door so you will need to file a little angle to get it to point straight.
Rmove and area on the inside and then the opposite area on the door panel outside to correct the angle.

Drivers Side
I ran the back door wires under the floor panel and connected the front door and rear door power wires together.
When I had the front and back power wires at the drivers side dash I connected them together into one wire.

I then ran one wire from the drivers side to the passenger side kick power area.
I repeated the same process on the passenger side and connected two to one.
I then connected the two into one so only one wire was run to attach to power.

IMHO if you do just the two front doors the install is quicker and easier.
If you want to do both front and back doors then do it all at the same time.
Why?
If you do all four doors you will need to line up the light "wings" on the front & back.
It's a easy mod that does not take very long to do and the kewl factor is way up there.
