Going to order either clear or smoked corners and side markers to match whatever I decide on. Also im going to change my grills to black. Do you guys think I should just buy new grills or plasti dip the ones I have already?

I didn't have good luck with plasti dipped grills so in my opinion i'd get new black ones and I definitely think you should go with smoked corners Nice car

Nice car. Enjoy it. I would stick with OEM clears all around.

Don't mind whoooty, he just gets upset when people buy mods, and then actually install them, instead of buying mods so you have things to +sell+.

Don't mind simsima, he's just some little girl who can talk crap on the internet and buys parts to make his car look like a civic And it's weird that you say I don't install the parts on my car when my car has many little parts that I could afford installed. Only thing I didn't install that I bought was that m3 rep rear

Edit: And moderator, shouldn't you be resolving issues instead of starting them? hmmmm

Why are you not happy with the grills? They look pretty good plasti-dipped. Or are you just afraid it will come off in the future? You could save yourself a few bucks which you can allocate elsewhere in the car.

I don't know, mate. We'll just have to see. By the way, did you post a picture of yourself in that post and delete it? Why is that, man? Should I repost the picture or...?
