Vinyl, didn't do it myself since i don't have patience to sit there and do it. Had a professional installer do it for me.

I like the stock 197 wheels better, but the black window trim is a great plus.

Car looks good if you like it.

Black out rear lights look like camel shit. Not to mention they are illegal and if someone were to ever rear end you all they have to say is point out your illegal rear lights that obscure the minimum visibility that is law required and you will be shit out of luck and have to be responsible for both parties' repairs and bodily injury. Put back your original lights man, shit happens and you will be thinking back to my post when someone rear ends you and you be like Oh Shit!

+1

also not a fan of matte black at all, gloss black everywhere for me

you should look into changing the emblems to black and white, it would accent the rest of your mods pretty well.. from here

aero lip would add a nice touch too. love everything else, good job
