I like that blacked out look, I think if you changed the bumper it would do a whole lot to your front end.

dude.. black your headlight trim, kidneys, drop, acs front, black roof and your car will be more than agressive enough to pull it off.

it comes stock on lincoln SUV's now your car doesnt need to be agressive to have a black roof

It's not as dark as it looks in the pics, but it's a little darker than legal. I think it's 20 all the way around.

No, it really isn't, especially when you know how to use it. Looks like you got a good handle on it.
