Yeah, I see your point. I just love the matt black kidneys on AW. Good lookin car man.

EDIT: I think they would look great and not out of place if you keep your grill to the bumper the same color. Dunno tho, would have to see in person.

ya know what would look sweet. If you had white lips. Don't see that too much maybe too much bling. I seen it on a white lambo with black centers and white lips. Heaven. I know a drop is in your plans. That would really look good.

awesome looking car, I can't really come up with other major modification that would make it even better. Slight drop (maybe just H&R sport springs) and you are done.
