Agree with propr on the mouldings. Why isn't the hood flush? It looks like it's about 1/2 inch lower then the fenders. Is there a gap between the corners and the fenders?
You need new headlights too, these are all scratched up and faded...

The rims looks amazing btw.

yea the hood thing has started to annoy me now that you've mentioned it... its not a big deal just the rubber peice on the inside isn't level... i dunno my body shop guy said it just needs to be alligned a bit better. no gaps in the corners and fenders (no accidents either).. the rubber weather stripping peice is missing on the drivers side i was going to fix it when i get new lights...

not really sure whats involved with hid's... seen daves car last year and was impressed with his setup...

thanks i like the rims too! was going to go with LTW's but i think the mpars are better for non m cars...

i think he means actually painting the moldings the same colour as the car... i've seen it done but cant stand it to be honest... takes the lines out of the car.. i think there was a reason they didnt come painted in the first place.
