That's just a Photoshop mock. There not the exact size they would really be. And painted flat black they will match the othe lt black on the body.

If you like it then go for it. Figure in all the costs first and get your ducks in a row before committing to buying them. I'm unsure how much it would cost to have a shop put them in unless you can do it yourself.

I deffinetly plan on waiting for this because it will be the most involved with cutting into the hood and everything but I have a pro that will help and I think measuring about 30,000 times should get it perfect. I just really like the look of the RS500 vents.

Are they to scale in the pic? They don't look quite 'right' (I don't know if it's the size as much as the angle).

Not all of us are addicted to the internet and have the time to spend participating in a cyber argument. We should have a meet and discuss these things in person if it's that important to you. Not everyone has the waaay overrated facebook, so if that's where the "real" club is moving to then I guess I'm out.
That was not an argument, at least not by my definition. Please always keep in mind that posting is emotionally sterile. This can lead to misunderstandings. The smilies help a bit.
OK. Lets address some of your points.
Making a real car club. >> This requires some form of organization or were dead out the door. I would recommend an 'affiliate' format as it is easiest and flexible. But you must have some core rules or you get chaos. Personally, I would organize by region (cause all car clubs is local). "Saint Louis Regional Focus Owners Club". We would interact internally as well as shared events with the "Kansas City Regional Focus Owners Club" or the "Louisville Regional Focus Owners Club" as we are between these two fictional entities. Each region uses whatever form of organization works for them. There are many points and issues to address. I won't go into them all here.
renting a track >> Gateway is all but shutdown. I could find no SCCA events near by. Strong possibility I am using the wrong search terms. No prior experience setting up such an event. Help?
Not all of us are addicted to the internet and have the time to spend participating in a cyber argument. We should have a meet and discuss these things in person if it's that important to you. >> Yes/No/Yes. Posts to this forum are 'sticky', you can read them as your schedule allows. Hence you don't need to be on the internet all the time. But you also raise a good point regarding timely notification for future important events. This forum can be used to identify what the issues are before we meet in person.
facebook >> I personally won't go there. Social Media sites will always have issues with security, privacy etc. There is also a problem with access. clnzx4 posted pics recently and I cannot view them (as an example).
Alternatives: Don't form a car club. This is by far the easiest format. Folks attend (or not) publicly available events and invite others to attend (pretty much what we have now).
Feedback?

Could you print out (to scale) the real thing and just place them on your hood. That would work better I think.

That's not a bad idea. I'll give it a shot.
