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

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!
