    Looks great! Nice and shiny. I like the spoiler and the window spoiler but I can't really say I'm feeling the sunroof spoiler. Love the rims too.

    yeah, I didn't really get the sunroof one either. Must go with the window vents. I am afraid to take it off for fear of what is under it.

    Very nice! I love black but it's so much work to maintain.

    Is the visor a stick on one or a clamp on?

    If there's a mark at all, it'll either be a line of buildup on the paint where the tape ended, or a slight rub mark from the rubber gasket. Either is easily buffed off.

    I don't think sunroof visors look right on newer cars. I have OEM visors on my '94 Vigor and '91 Accord, and like the look.

    I think it is two sided tape. I guess if I take it off and can't fix the marks it leaves I could always get some more tape.

    Yup. But the marks, if any, will come off.
