A Few New Pics

well, I haven't been on here in a while, been busy getting my marketing degree, the house, the family, ect...but I did find a little time to work on the car

I put on the coupe spoiler, re-tinted the windows (don't ever buy cheap pre-cut tint, it just falls right back off) new tires (the correct size) installed the HID's and played around a little with the stereo





next, it's the chrome door handles, clear LED third brake light, and LTZ leather interior

now, if only someone can find me the SS front bumper...

Needs the whole SS kit if you're doing that, I wouldn't do just the bumper.

Would also skip the chrome door handles, and just remove the factory door trim.

Never really cared for that...so much cleaner without it.

I don't mind the door trim, and I like the chrome handles, especially since I'm planning the chrome third brake light, headlights, and...if I can ever find a set, taillights.... I just like a little sparkle on the car

I'm considering chrome wheels, but a little up in the air about it, maybe just a chrome or high polished lip

I would love the whole SS kit, but I can't find it for a reasonable price... I did find a set of side skirts, which are now in my basement, but the rear bumper seems impossible to find for a sedan

Normally I say your car your rules... but H.I.D's? in stock housing? that can be painful for oncoming traffic...

It's actually not that bad, and I do plan projectors... Just got the hid kit when I blew a headlight bulb

As far as blinding oncoming traffic, my wife has followed me in my car...it's not as bad as most...but they aren't high-brightness Hids, they are only 4300k, but it helps alot with my night vision issues

I'm pretty sure for the rear bumper you just need the lip.

I try to get the parts locally...through salvage yards so I see it before purchase

it costs a fortune for shipping a bumper cover due to the size...although the one you posted is free shipping

if it comes in and isn't what I wanted though, I might have to pay return shipping

that bumper just extends a little lower...and covers that black plastic under the rear center of the car, right?

I may seriously consider this after my next bonus though, looks like it would even come painted
