Yes, being in Ottawa, there are so many Quebec cars that I can get away with it (they don't have front plates).

Hehe, the taillights: I bought a spare set off ebay for $1 (US though, so not that good of a deal eh? ) I bought taillight tint (NiteShades), masked off the lower part, and gave it 15 light coats. I clear coated the whole things after to smooth it out. It was really just an experiment that went way better than i thought. Its different than everyone else's clears, so I like.

Why yellow fogs? Heres a great reason: the fogs (when white) do almost nothing but light up. And no matter what kind of bulb you put in, they look bad next to the HID. Putting in HID foglights is both expensive and redundant, the main HIDs are plenty enough light.

However, in FOG, yellow is good, better than white, much better than HID. So in dense fog I turn off the main lamps, and run the fogs only (with DRL of course). So now, instead of being a show piece, they are functional. DTM race cars use all yellow lights at night, because it cuz through smoke / fog, that's where I got the idea.

I made the yellow lense covers myself, they look top notch, and are removeable with some acetone and a razor blade if I don't want to keep or the next owner doesn't like. In fact, everything, even the front lip, is removable in minutes if need be. Go for when I put a big hole in the front lip with a curb or raccoon someday.

Yeah, that's pretty sweet, but if I'm gonna spend money on powder coating rims, I'll do my style 5's that are in the garage! I p-shoped it though, and it would look really good, especially if it was lower.
