That's exactly why I chose that model because it blends in perfectly with the other chrome and bright silver accents.

Looks really good overall. my GTO and Passat have 35% on front sides and 5% on rear windows... since front tint is "illegal" I may stick with 35% on the Explorer too... although I love how much more the 20% blocks.

I'll post pics regardless what I choose :D

I like that rear cargo organizer too, definitely will come in handy for those lil trips around town ;)

Bad ass!!!!

Thank you! I think I am done so far with all the accessories that I wanted to do on my Sport. I finally had the HID lights done today and I am so happy with the outcome. I thought I had gone too far with the 8000K because I was under the impression that they may be too blueish but I like the way it turned out.
Just gorgeous!!! I truly Love my Explorer Sport. So far in just three weeks I had put only 400 miles and have enjoyed every mile.

I had a 2012 Explorer limited Fully Loaded before and I traded it in for the Sport and I have asked many of my friends who have seen both to describe in one word what is the one major difference they see between my 2012 Limited and the 2013 Sport and they all tell me the same thing, the Explorer Limited had a refined/luxurious look to it but ;

I wonder what a black shark fin would look like on a white Ex.

I'll jump in here. Thanks to NY I bought the same ones. They are from coolbulbs.com I bought the 6000k. They are more of a white light.

G1K-9005 9005 Pair $125.00 this is the number I ordered. His would be G1B-9005 9005

Can you post pictures / impressions of the rear cargo mat / protector? I'm trying to decide between the OEM and the WeatherTech. Thanks.
