If that's how you like it, it doesn't matter what others think.

But here's what I think:
-Get spacers, that wheel-to-fender gap is crazy
-Clean your engine bay!
-Since it seems like you're going for a darker theme, you might as well get smoked corners and paint the headlight bezels black

The silver bezels, clear corners, and silver inner bumper trim (name..?) clash with the smoked side markers, dark tint, and black wheels

I think you've cheapened/degraded the overall look of your car.

And running HID bulbs in your halogen housing 1) looks riced out like a civic, and 2) blinds oncoming drivers.

I agree with others. Spend the 400 and buy depo HID projectors. Also liked the OEM wheels WAAAAAY better.

Black on black is retarded...Just my opinion.

IMO I would get rid of those wheels and the blue lights. I would paint the chrome trim and go for a proper set of hid's along with a full detail of the exterior, interior, and engine bay.
