looks great. I was very relieved to open this thread and not see that you tinted the outer housings or put autozone covers on them!!!!

That makes a huge difference with the entire look of your car. It's definitely more aggressive now. I think a pair of CF splitters will really set if off, maybe CF mirror covers?

um i couldnt find anything i just heard you had to cut them which i dont think is entirely true its just a pain in the balls to actually heat and split them so cutting is easier and you dont even see the cuts anywhere, just make sure to cut around the screws in the lenses and then the headlights just pull out its super easy

I'm not sure I love it, I think I would have left it alone after getting rid of the orange. But it probably looks much nicer in person, and suits the black out theme you got going on.
