They look good, but would look better if painted an exact match to the rest of the car

off. eyelids mildly increase weight, mildly worsen aerodynamics, and reduce the area that your headlights can shine on.

I would ditch the TYCs and get some black housing headlights. From there, you can have the option of keeping the eyelids or not.

ive honestly waited a couple days to state my opinoin and i still dont know, like vtecv6 said they would look alot better if the were an exact color match, i personally normally am not a big fan of eyelids, but i guess they look good.

I personally like the eyelids, and nice job on the new paint job, it looks pretty good...Just one suggestion, I'd get rid of the little fog lights. I was never a fan of those cuz I felt they looked way too cheap. Just my opinion.

I never really liked my eyelids either b/c they werent a perfect color match...ppl most likely didnt notice but to me they always were glaringly off.

^the guys right about the foglights...they do make our cars look a lil cheap...that's why i took mine off too...and mine werent even that bad.
