I have just now come around to start customizing the 05 which I bought in september of 05. I debadged it, put on a pinstripe and blacked out the stupid chrome grill and added a red accent to make it look like the new VW GTi. Just a little cheap mod, but I'm happy with it. So, here is the first time my ZX3 is on the net:

I like that red stripe in the grille :)

yeah, that red stripe doesn't look bad at all.
can you get a picture a little farther away from the car?? to see how the stripe flows with the rest of the car? that would be cool.
nice work man.

oh, and I love how your dealer didn't drill any wholes for the front plate. Mine drilled nasty holes on the bumper, so I had to keep the screws on to cover them up. That sucks.
DAMNIT THAT WAS MY IDEA MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE .....
OK now that I have that out of my system...
The red stripe on the grille looks good.. I was planning to do that to mine before I decided to sell it..
I was also thinking (and I am throwing it out there for your consideration) to make red the whole bottom portion of the "grille frame" .. i.e. take a thicker piece of red stuff, and the sections of the grill frame that have your thin red stripe woud be fully red.
Nice to see 05+ coming up with mods... oh and I think this belongs to Showroom.
Thanks for posting .
btw a lone pic of my plan (this is a chop)

Thanks guys. Yeah so far my mods have stayed under 40 bucks...This leaves me enough money for the summertime supercharger.

Looks good, and definitely different.
Since no one else has said it yet ... [welcome] to the Forums.
