Heliguy, what rims do you have? Can you send a pic? I am switching to black over the next few weeks and am looking for inspiration.

Thanks.

They look great! Just ordered this morning the BBS SR 18in in dark grey, also getting it lowered next weekend so should give a fully different look.

I would like to find a good set of clear tail lights - They update the looks

I realize it is a relatively minor change, but I think it makes a big difference in the appearance of the car. I see that you also painted your bumperettes.

I de-ambered the front of my car, but haven't been able to find a good deal on the tail lights. I expect there are many owners with 97-02 cars chasing after a limited number of tail lights from 03-04 cars.
