I like the side moldings. Shaved moldings would look better on imports. The only thing I would wanna shave is my door handles. just my 0.02

My Ride: ur girl!!!
It's really a difference on opinion on shaving moldings on your car. For example, look at the new 7 series, do they have moldings and does it look like a "ricey import"??? Your call. I personally like that clean look on the reflection off the door and sides. Two more weeks and you guys will see. I would of shaved the handles but it's not practical if the remote entry fails, you'll be F#$ked!!! Literally speaking. haha I believe maybe Daniel Choe didn't shave his moldings is because of his front and rear bumper. I dont think that would look nice if he shaved the sides but the bumper still have that line or the molding outline. Maybe that's why he left it on. I mean anyone can make or say that someone else's car is or looks ricey. But hey, if your car, whatever make you happy. Go for it. Whatever floats your boat man.
