Euro Goodness

So I haven't posted in a while and just installed some ST170 headlights and a Euro grille so I thought I'd share. After the install my Dad and I had an impromptu photo shoot, I hope you like the pictures.

wow nice car.
i have a few questions for you tho.
from what i can see ur car looks lowered.. may i ask how much? and what kit you used if it is..
and also, what percent tints did you do on the windows? i would like to get something close to that.
and lastly, where did u get the lip for the front bumper? i would like to do something like that with my car so i dont have to go full out with a body kit. i like that clean look.

thanks, and an answer to each question would be great! :]

He's right it is the same lip that came stock on the SVT, I really like it because it's pretty flexible and with my car lowered this much I need a flexible front lip. That kind of answers your first question, here's the rest. The suspension is an H&R Cup Kit and it lowered the car pretty considerably. I'd say about 2 inches in the front and maybe a little more in the back. (So you know H&R now has two variants of the Cup Kit, I have the lower one) Here's a pic with my old wheels for reference:



That's with the same tires as the wheels in the pictures posted above. As far as the windows, honestly I don't know, the previous owner tinted the car. I will say that personally I'd like them darker but that's just my own opinion. Thanks for looking!

Really great looking focus. The headlights and upper grill look amazing.
You need the matching lower grill now. It'll look even better then.
Your dad's vette is freakin' sick also.

They are 17x7.5 Rota SDRs and they do come in gold, they're just hard to find in our bolt pattern. Mine are the one's on the far right for reference.
