Pics of my smoked corners and painted bumper grid mesh

Below are some pics of my Umnitza (Depo) smoked corners and of my bumper grid mesh which was repainted satin black due to the mesh looking a dull black previously. You can compare the pics of my car with smoked corners to my sig pic which shows my previous corners - the OEM clear corners.
I really like how the smoked corners complement my black carbon fiber components (headlight trim, kidney grilles, hood roundel, and license plate frame) and black grid mesh on my RDSport R35 front bumper.

My thanks to CynicalWry for taking the time to install the smoked corners for me while I was recuperating at my parents home from surgery.

Just get the bumper trim piece without the holes for the plate.

Then if you get pulled over say you are sorry and that your car did not come with an option to mount a front plate...

But of course they're real 2x2 twill weave carbon fiber.

I bought the headlight trim from FiberDesign. You'll only find real carbon fiber mods on my car. The only thing that isn't real carbon fiber is my front facing child seat for my daughter. It has a carbon fiber pattern though that matches with my carbon fiber interior of my car.

Thanks bro. I actually considered losing the front plate when I bought my RDSport R35 bumper, but it's illegal not to have the front plate here in MD, plus my area has quite a large number of cops patrolling around, so I decided not to take any chance.

Plus I like my real carbon fiber license plate frame on the front of my car.

Looks good.
I bought similar set at ebay.de
Had a little doubt if smoked ones would be right choice. No doubt anymore!
