    Yup. Car looks great. I love the V bumper. The clear fogs are nice too. I tinted the orange half but only cause my car is black.

    Very nice!!! I like the set up and those OEM wheels are my favorite. Plasti-dip the wheels will help you decide if you want a permanent change.

    I can't really see the lower grill so take a straight on pic for us to see

    I have a thread on here called My "ghetto" lower V grille" shows how it looks when the bumpers off the car. It's a little short on each sides I was initially scared to see what it would look like on the car but it turned out very well. I think it looks great and have no plans to change it any time soon. The sides that are short kinda match up with the air holes under the fogs. I will post a straight on picture later

    Ok. I just checked it out. What mesh did you use? I don't think anyone will see it biwng short once its on the car. I have seen a lot of people actually go without a lower grill on the V bumper. I thought you made a custom lower grill surround and mesh.

    I used the mesh from behind a old cts SPORT grille. It is on the car now. It's very hard to see in pictures and in person it's also pretty hard to notice unless you know what your looking for.i didn't want any type of trim surrounding the grille I prefer with out. I'm not a big fan of chrome either. The v grille is enough chrome for me.

    Looks good. I wouldn't plastidip the rims though....I think people usually just do that with bad rims...those look good.

    Have you considered doing a light tint on your fogs?

    Yes I have. I think it would look pretty good. I would have to do the side markers as well. It would also dim the ugly orange bulb. I probably will tint them, im just not 100 percent sure on it yet.
