A cheap and easy mod for the front grill that's worth a million bucks,...

A $5 roll of 1/4" vinyl reflective like silver pin striping. The front grill needed more flavor.

I think its a total win. For me at least because the grill now matches my wheels.

I like it. It looks like a billet grille without looking like "too much metal". And the contrast of the black and reflective is really nice.

What about continuing the stripes onto the license plate gap? Maybe photo shop it to get an idea

I don't really like it but that is just my opinion. However, good work on making your car different and your own.

I don't think it'd look good on my Sterling Grey Metallic but on the black it's not too bad.
