Why are your kidney grilles not fully chrome? Do you find too much chrome tacky?
That's how the car came. Not sure if chrome grille slats were a dealer option, or whether they came with the ZPP, which my car doesn't have...

Regardless, I like them. Between the chrome kidney surrounds, "titanium" headlight trim and polished window trim, the car has exactly the right amount of brightwork for me. Not too much; not too little. :thumbsup:

^Nice! I especially appreciate the way the body's character line flows into the white part of the tailights.

I like coupe/vert LED tails a lot though; so a sedan version of them is my first choice.

Having the front bumper repainted and fixing my OFHG is first though.

You can even get R/C/R tail lights in LED form if you desire
