I think the Chrome headlights look pretty good with the dark car. The wheels also look perfect.

Really don't like the chrome fender vent. Any way you can paint that black?

a drop would be nice.
imo you should keep your current headlights
you should color match the fender vents

other than that, looks great

Why are you running spacers for? I have Baers track kit w/ no issues running those wheels. Checkout my profile albums for pix of my car for mod ideas.

as mentioned earlier they rub the 08+ front brake bracket slightly. the op chose to grind the bracket but I was going for a spaced out look anyway so i used spacers in the front and in the rear to make it look more aggressive with my drop.

Are you tinting your tail lights or buying them already tinted? And also, where did you find a black grille? I have a 2008 SES and I have been looking to do a few mods on her.

The 2010/2011 models have a dark Argent colored grill. That's the one I went with. I'll be adding the darker housing headlights available on that same model to bring those into check as well.

Here's an example:

That looks so good! Love it! Also, I still have my chrome side pieces which I don't care for too much.. anyway to get those off without messing up the paint? Or are they drilled in? I'm not sure how those pieces are attached.

Looks great and those rims are really nice, like they said above a 2" drop would be worth it. I droped my car with H&R springs for only $100 (I bought them used though.. if you get them new they're like $225 which isn't bad either).
