Finally done some mods :)!!!

Ok this is my car before









Ok here we go, i ordered matte black grille, black side markers, and black corners from jlevisw.com, great quality products thanks .

I ordered angel eyes from umnitza the orion v2s 6000, they are by far my favorite addition i have made. Also got a Dice silverline from EAS.

I took my stock wheels sanded, primered and sprayed them with gunmetal. I really like the look from rattlecan. Also used some smoke spray on my factory tails, it like the look but is temporary until i order some smoked Leds.
Sorry in advance that it is so dirty the wheels still have not cured enough to spray and taillights either .

Also i would appreciate some comments on what to do next, oh and i debadged but have not cleaned it up yet .

Looking good. Like most have said +1 to removing chromes. They were ugly anyway.
