Not too bad but I guess I would like it better if your car wasn't black. Too much black takes away from the car my opinion.

I love it, but why ditch the spoiler?

You like a clean ass?

Ditch that gold emblem them. I'm not a big fan of smoked tail lights but if your going murder out your car, really murder it.

Re: first steps on my new lude

its an issue im having as well with a black lude. thought black rims would look good with it but they dont. they are nice rims 17s with a double 5 spoke centre and the inside is black as well. black trim, black lips. thing is it just looks black. any black lude out there with chrome rims looks better than mine imo. its a delicate contrast to highlight important things that makes the difference. when it comes to the emblems i think the chrome emblems look best and i never really liked the look of smoked anything. thats just me though. stainless tips help to set it off and your rims as i said look better than mine. as for the spoiler ive always been split. some look amazingly slick without em, some with. myself im changing mine to a mugen which has a pleasant balance of factory and aftermarket. keep it up, summers almost here.

Re: first steps on my new lude

Gold emblem on the monochromatic rear is SICK! You guys are high!. One reccomendation is wetsand and polish the lights so they shine like the rest of the paint. Nekked trunks FTW.

Its a good first step.......HOWEVER!...... if you're going to do black (murdered out, since you were asking) you gotta go all the way! No corners cut. Headlights, wheels, etc.
