Very nice car. I like what you've done...the only thing that I don't really care for is the stock grille...I think something needs to be done with that. Just my opinion. Otherwise I like the car.

Can I ask, did you do the paint job yourself? If not, about how much did it cost you? I'm trying to get an idea what something like that would run me. Also, 4% on the windows...wow, dark...do you ever get pulled over for that dark of tint or for the windshield being tinted?

No I sent it out to a local guy who does airbrushing. It cost me 4grand but it was his first two tone paint job and has since jumped the price up 2grand. So look in the 4-6grand range. That was including putting the body kit on and what not. And I'm in Ontario so thats cdn $$ vs USD
