Looking good. Now you just need to bake those headlights, pull them apart, and plastidip those turn signals. Or else you could darken them a little with some LaminX headlight film.

Baking is tough if it is your first time

Are the fog lights a drop in replacement for the OEM lights. The OEMs don't really give off much light.

I'd like to see more photos of the Carbon Wrapped Rear Spoiler.

Where did you get that done? How much? Easy to come off?

if you want more brighter go HID's its the only way...I have PIAA Extreme on mine..my headlights are HID's and you can still see that HID's are far from very bright and white...
