Thanks all! Matte black wheels are tempting.

I ordered a similar set but I have the sap grill and it appears much harder to reach the bottom screw to get my originals out. Also the sap grill borders are one piece with the lower bumper so i might have to drop whole bumper to attach. I am reluctant to install and then find a moisture leak or clouding with the new headlights. Anyone install with sap fronts without dropping bumper?

It can be done, but you risk scratching the SAP bumper trying to put lights in and taking them out and the screws on the side of the lights that go though the fender are really hard to get out with the bumper on.

Maybe I'll just install the black ones if my own headlights crack or fail. My bumper is sagging a bit now like others with the sap, I'll just get weather stripping to cover the gaps under the headlights

Sporadic, can you elborate more on how/what you did to fill the gap underneath the headlights?

No, when I removed my headlights for the first time a while ago, I was unaware that the third bolt even existed. I was able to remove the headlight by gently rocking it side to side until it came loose; that fastener isn't held in by a full tap, to it doesn't take to much to disloadge it from the headlight. I've been running my headlight without that bolt for 6 months now, and it really doesn't make a difference, its pretty well stuck in place by the other two bolts and the weight of the hood.

Before bolting in the headlights I lifted up the edge of the bumper cover and stuck some weather stripping on the bumper to keep the bumper cover lifted.
The bumper cover has plenty of flex to allow for the extra lift.
I used a stiffer 1/2" weather stripping I had sitting around. More of an extreme weather type.
