looks great. Maybe consider the eyelids mentioned in an earlier post. They would add an absolutely gorgeous addition.

Should have some on, new "gray scale" emblems, and painted calipers by the end of the week! I'll post new pics.

Very nice! How do the wheels and grille hold up against stone chips?

So far so good! I put it on pretty thick so it should hold up great.

----------

Completed a few more mods this week:

-Added another 35% tint on top of original tint ($70)
-Gray scale emblems (vinyl stickers) on front and back, and on wheels (free from a friend)
-Vinyl tinted my headlights and added black eyelids ($20)
-Added second Bose subwoofer in the spare tire well. They both fit stacked on each other. I tapped into the oem connector/plug since they are self powered, no need to run any new wires for power or anything. I pretty much just ran wires from the added bose sub plug straight into the rear of the orig bose sub plug. ($100)
-HID 55 watt fog lights (now the combination of tinted headlights and HID fogs are brighter than the original light combination before tinting)($40)
-LED DRL ($15)
-LED interior lights/ plate lights ($15)
-Modified air box/removed snorkel (30 mins)
-Muffler delete. Just running the factory resonators, sounds pretty good, no hwy drone. Had the muffler shop cut the off and fab new pipes and weld on factory tips ($125)
-Painted yellow calipers ($5)
-Foot well ambient light kit (~$40)

Let me know if anyone wants pic of anything in particular. I've had this car about 6 weeks, and love the new look/sound!

How did you change the DRL bulbs???

Removed the 2 10mm bolts above the grille, the 2 push pins above the grille (further out set), one 10mm bolt on each side behind the fender lining, leaned bumper forward, removed lights (3 bolts each), changed bulbs, reinstall.

No need to undo anything under the bumper, just laid a towel down and leaned the bumper forward and rested on the ground.

Looks great murdered out......did you do this with two hands or four?

Two hands. I made sure to tape off the fender above the bumper, because it will hit the fender if you do it alone.

In my opinion I would have left the Caddy emblems stock.

Thanks man.

I wish I heard it before yesterday. I actually deleted my muffler yesterday but was too aggressive in sound haha. Put my stock muffler back on. If anyone wants let me know. I'm getting rid of it for 100obo. I'm in the los Angeles area
