Welcome to the forums!

To start off with, for Tint I would go 30% all around (That's what I did), I wouldn't do darker upfront and lighter at the rear because it might look a little weird imo.

I'm planning on getting some air scoops from cyba, hes on the forum selling them for 45$ shipped I believe.

There are also a thousand more mods to go from there! Great looking car, have fun.

That was just my 2cents, as I wished I went a little darker because during the day when there's direct sunlight my window tint looks too light for my liking, but if you like that tint setup than go for it!

Was it just a simple plug and play swap and replace for the AE bulb? And did you have to remove any components of the car to replace it?

Performance spoiler review

Packaging 10/10 ( spoiler was secure with foam, in a box and box wrap again in foam )

Quality 8/10 (glass fiber look great, small wave in product at fun sunshin but acceptable)

Paint 8/10 ( color match is not off, not perfect but my car is 3 years old so maybe this is why )

Fitment 9/10 ( it match the trunk edge at 99%)

Installation 10/10 ( 5 minutes to apply 3m tape, 10 minutes for final installation)

Over all: I'm satisfied

18x8 ET40 225 / 40R18
vs
16x7 ET31 with 205 / 55R16 original

tire size is common and gives the same ratio, but width and fit.
Do I need to roll the fenders, need spacers or anything else??

and an alpine white like mine, what if I painted it gloss black?
