But practically speaking, how often most people you use them? Which also begs the question: Are you ever going to use them if you upgrade them? lol Or are you just wasting money that would be better spent elsewhere.

I would just buy new clips (male) that go on the side skirt and new inserts (female plastic washers) that you push into the body and call it a day. I think there are like 6-8 per side

Don't say "you," it was the other dangle that was asking, not I.

Hmm, I bet they would get the idea if I installed strobes in the headlights and some amber emergency lights on top.

I took one of my sister's dogs on a run. The one I took is so damn fat and out of shape, it got tired out so quickly.

And the HID lights I installed yesterday. Still another 2 or 3 I want to install, and then the expensive part of running all the wiring.
