Hope you guys enjoy the showroom for now!! I decided to go for a more elegant style, still sporty enough. That is why I color matched the front lip, rear diffuser and side mirrors. Already received many compliments in the streets, especially at night when the door led's are on lol.... Still getting questions if its a Lexus. I LOVE MY CAR!!!

Any questions let me know... :cool:

How are the door leds installed? I also like how BRIGHT the trunk is! And the rear spoiler, is that stock?
Yes. The rear spoiler on the trunk is stock. SXL has chrome trim there and side skirts.

I followed Guardiannite & Berto's DIY - LINK Its not difficult, just takes time and a lot of cable lol... As for the trunk I got some LED strips from Advance Auto Parts (Around $20 - can find them cheaper online) and I installed them into the bulb housing so I can still put a bulb in!! The rear spoiler it is stock for the SXL models. If you really like it, I know there have been some people wanting to swap it for a non-chrome spoiler (Might wanna check that out)
