'08 S Front Made special

So I had blacked out my chrome grill about a week ago and posted it. My plan was to leave it at that till spring, but then there was another nice day. So I did some more. My bottom lip is now flat black as well, and I installed fog lights since the S didnt come with them. I had to do some special mounting buisness, to get them to fit and not stick out like bug eyes. Seeing as usally they have the inserts, and the S had inserts with no holes.

So what does everyone think?
comments very much welcome, posiive and negitive.

if it was my fofo, would maybe try tucking the fogs into the bumper more. It seems like in the picture showing the side view they are sticking out a tad bit

yea, they do a little bit, but the way I had to do them I had to actually screw them into the car on both sides and on the inside I could only get the drill in so far. I had to do it directly to the car cause the way the brackets weere you could see the back they stuck out so far. And I couldnt have that. ha

looks awesome man, good job

only thing i dont like is the fogs seem to stick out a little, n look a litle awkward. you should either cut out some mesh and fill in that whole section, putting the fogs behind the mesh, or cut our a hole for the fogs to stick thru. just my opinion, but otherwise it looks sweet =)
