Tasks Completed:
Replaced damaged front bumper assembly, wheel cowlings, upgraded to SX versions, added winglets, upgraded fog lamps to newest variant
Replaced side winglets
Added real splitter canards
Upgraded to lifted spoiler over lip spoiler
Removed 3rd tail Lamp, and rerouted wiring to lighting unit in lifted spoiler

Thinking of maybe calling this part package the "Roadbuster" edition, or something...

Looks good.

I can't see the lug nuts clearly - did you replace them with a different look?

Now, go ahead and chrome delete your car, remove the pin stripe and remove the other badge on the back (passenger side). Keep them guessing :).

I kind of like the chrome... It adds a little flair. Plus, I really can't remove it from the fender vents, there are switchbacks hidden inside, so they light up. So, if they're the only chrome elements, that'd look weird.

Black wheels, on the other hand... that might be worth looking into. Especially if I can add a red ring.

And I like the pinstripe. Hand laid it myself. I put one on every car I've owned.
