better- but I think you can have both. Find yourself some fog light cups that you can mount in the bumpers skin (ala NB sport). And paint the rivets, otherwise you're just a splitime wannabe.

I think you should paint your mirrors black.

Nice car, one comment....are you getting products for free or do you just like to pretend your car is sponsored?

What a difference. I really dislike the look of the FM style IC's, that's why I sold my FM IC kit. With the fog lights gone and the IC black, its a 100% improvement.

I'm resisting painting my IC, but I know its worth it in the long run to prevent theft.
