I recently wrapped my interior trims. The colour I picked was pretty close to the stock colour, just a little darker and matte.

Here's a pic of the front. Can you see the side mirrors lenses are tinted? I'm thinking of doing the headlights and fogs the same. And while I'm at it, I'd black out the surround for the fogs (the grey trim)

IDK. It would probably look awesome, but a lot of guys here won't dig it.

If you go that way, be perpared for the light output to be drastically reduced. Been there, done that!

You could leave a round cutout around where the projector shines through, then, install a very light tint right there not to hurt your output as much, and it will not look too out of place.

I never tint my lights Iím always trying to make them brighter. But I like the way the tinted lights look better though for sure. Do you have an instructions on how to remove and wrap the pieces they came out really great.

Does your down pipe and high flow cat allow you to pass emissions testing?

i can dig the mods. Well done!

Question: did you set up the DRL to be your Signal bulb instead of the highbeam?
