We picked up the car yesterday! It now has 150 miles and the Steeda swaybar installed already. It's a big go-kart now. I wish it had more power, but the nimble handling makes up for it.

I noticed the same issue on the Hyundai Sonata the other day...I have been scoping out trim alignment on other similarly priced cars (what a loser I am LOL!)

WhiteT5, shes a beaut, Clark!!

Anybody besides me hate the crome window trim on the SELs and TIs? I have a candt blue SEL. Have to price out the black trim like the S and SE to see if its worth changing.
Love those earlier shots with the black rims too.

personally I like the trim, but I do like the black trim on the darker colors...I think our blue candy is nicely offset by the chrome...

Removing the chrome trim is a royal freaking pain in the NECK! It involves removing the door panels, the window regulators, and standing on your head to get to the clips without hitting the window glass...and thas not even considering how you get to the trim thats not on the doors...

Thanks for the insight falcon! I was a mechanic for a lot of years, so I could do it, but doesn't sound like its worth it. I've got plenty to do on my other vehicles. Maybe the chrome will grow on me....

could always spray it with plasti-dip! and you can reverse it later if you want.
