Sure, the ST valance may not be functional, but it definitely looks better than what you've currently got going on.
Again, there is a plan, but I'm waiting to see if I can get the reflectors from Europe directly for less even factoring in shipping vs the rape at the dealers here.
It currently isn't integrated, but that was the plan to change the lower valance if I went with the exhaust eventually, but originally I didn't even have any plans to modify the exhaust yet as I was not expecting to find something I liked so easily.
