Question: Installation of accessories outside of dealership

I am planning to buy the Civic 2013 EX-L online through penfed because I get a good rate on financing:
https://penfed.truecar.com/main.html..._id=ZPEN000005
Now, I won't be able to get any accessories installed with the online purchase.

And I wanted to have Body Side Moldings, Auto Day/Night Mirror and Wheel Locks installed.

Would it be possible to have these accessories installed outside of dealership from some reputed shop.
If somebody could recommend any such auto shop which deals with the installation of accessories in the Austin, TX area, then that would be great. I can buy the accessories online it seems from handa-accessories.com. The dealer is charging me $750 extra for these three accessories [cost+installation].

Thanks!

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
