Very nice car! It's space gray right? Where did you get your side reflector painted? Does it match perfectly in person like that picture? Nice Aero Bumper!

Reflectors and lip were painted at the same time and match perfectly. Local body shop painted, they do great work.

So the mesh is removable blocking the intercooler? Or did you have to cut it out?

the mesh blocking the intercooler is removable, just tape up the inside of your bumper so you dont scratch it on your way out... The side mesh peices must be taken out from the back of the bumper.

You have to push it (center mesh) in to release it from all of the clips. Start at a corner and work your way around, once it is free you will have to twist it a bit to manuver it out, thats why I say to tape up you bumper. After you take it out you will still be able to see all of the plastic tabs on the bumper that held it in. It gives it a an unfinished look IMO, i cut the tabs off since I was not interested in putting it back.

you may want to leave it be... I suspect it is easier to remove than to put back.

It is a front lip which installed over your existing OEM bumper. There is a rear bumper as well but I opted for front lip only.
