Do it! It's way worth it and it handles amazing. Better then ST, SRT4, GTI. I did need camber arms in the back tho.

Edit: but I also have sway bars and endlinks.

Please tell me where all the color is? You make it sound like im driving a color palet. All I see is black and dark grey with a hint of blue when the lights are on.

The headlights, taillights, mirror lights, even the foglights should be blacked out. Lack of tint, but you said that your getting that soon. That white and red sticker on the bottom of your car, etc. Murdered out means everything is black not just the wheels.

It's a good-looking car nontheless, I just wouldn't call it murdered. At least get some Ti headlights or the SMC repros, that would help to clean up the front end and help you continue your black/grey theme.

I'm in the process. A murdered car doesn't have to have the head lights blacked out. Ill eventually get the lights with the black housing I just think tinting your lights is kinda pointless. I've blacked out all the chrome

Thank you. I had the title set as "blacked out" but I changed it after I blacked out all chrome.

You have to really pull on it. Kinda wiggle the bulb side to side. It's a wedge bulb so it's wedged in there. I thought I was going to break the bulb when I pulled it out.
Hope that helps. Post a pic when you finish!
