Welcome!! I would suggest getting either a lip kit or ss bumpers/sideskirts before going with the ss high rise wing...IMO the high rise on a stock base model doesn't look very good

ehh i may be the only person to think this but i kinda like the regular bumper over the ss bumper dunno why haha it just doesn't give me a real wow thats awsome but my mind can change...speaking of this i do need a front bumper owner before me had a tow bar installed so that they could tow the car behind their rv after they had retired and were traveling haha most of the miles were from being towed but there is a two big holes on either side haha so i dunno ill have to see what price i could get the whole thing for and switch all them out while im at it

Doing your own thing is what car modding is all about :)
So they cut notches in the bumper for the bar?

yeah where the venting??? is at on the bottom haha but o well and i kinda like what that lip kit does i dunno i just got her today so all these thing are boiling in my head to get started on haha

biggest question is who was the genius that put manuel windows on a 2006 car haha jk but seriously...i did notice that other people have power locks which is something i definitly want to do since i will be putting my 2000 dollar system in this car

Welcome! I don’t think you have to replace the whole bumper to get rid of the holes in your lower grille. I’m pretty sure that piece comes out. At least I hope so, lol.. my car has the same set-up except it still has the tow bar.

Welcome. I know what you mean about that orange. It's a sexy color and has a lot of possibilities. If you REALLY wanted to, you could probably go to paint shop and get it done, or Maaco if you want it done cheaper.
