if you have paddle shifters, you can rewire them to function like SMG.

...how exactly are LCI facelift taillights 'simple' or 'cheap'?

EDIT: I'm guessing the red vinyl, nvm then. lol

I put a vinyl over the amber side reflecters, looks pretty good. Needs some touch ups tho. I'm going to swap my oem angel eye bulbs for a 6k xenon white color bulb..is there anything else?

there are SO MANY things you can do to these cars without spending too much coin, but it takes a little know-how / skill.

Black Vinyl Amber Reflector

Can you explain to me what you did on your headlight to get those ugly amber reflectors to look better (black vinyl?)? did you have to remove the headlight or take it apart to do it and could you post a pic of how it turned out.
Thanks!
