I'd rather have the trunk trim paint-matched, honestly. And I like the door trim! Just glad i finally got rid of the hideous stock grille.

You can find plenty of grilles online that look exactly like the sport mesh one. Which is severely overpriced imho. Look up C-Mod grilles i have one on my car and it fits great and looks perfect.

No doubt you can find cheaper ones, but I just got tired of looking. Ebay didnt have any but the flat black ones with no emblem, and i've heard those don't fit quite right. I'm diggin your car, btw. Kudos on the roof rack

I actually got this one off Newegg.com (a tech retailer ) for $60. Fits good enough for me.

My Newegg grill actually sits more-flush than the Sport Grill my car came with. Probably was never put on correctly by the previous owner... So now I have a sport grill mounted on the wall in my computer room

You replaced your OEM sport mesh grill with an aftermarket? Lol

Nope, my sport grill wasn't a mesh grill - it had a chrome center piece in it.

It doesn't quite line up between the headlights, the bottom half doesn't clip very well, and the mesh will get dislodged from the fiberglass frame when going through a carwash.

This. I've got the same one, although I bought mine through JC Whitney as the spyder grille. I think it was $80-$90.

I got my tails tinted and got some wheels photo shopped what do you guys think



The first 3 are rpfs and I'm leaning towards black gold isn't bad but it would look better if it was a darker gold

Tails look good! Now you need to paint match/black out your hatch trim lol. For the wheels, I personally think silver looks good but if you were to get a color I would say bronze. I honestly love black but you can't see the details of the wheel

Has anyone experienced the clutch pedal squeak? Only happens at the end of the clutch pedal travel. Found some info on the forums saying it could be a cracked firewall. Gunna go take a peak to see if it indeed cracked.
