Looks good but that tow hook needs to go. Never understood why people put them on cars.

The problem with the hook is that it really doesn't serve much purpose... I think if someone hit you from behind, that tow hook would likely end up smashed into your bumper in one way or another.

I agree though- the car looks good. I'm a big fan of yellow fog lights.

Type the name of the lip (yes, that's what it's actually called) into your favorite search engine to find it.

Car looks sick. Did you use matte on the grill? and did you remove it when you dipped it?

Hey There,

What kind of spoiler add-on is this? I'm wondering if drilling is required?

Do you get any vibration issues for the axles with those coils with the car being AWD?
