Looks pretty nice. The Inspire head lights would look much better. Is that a CF hood? Do you plan to get the chrome hood trim?

yup carbon fiber hood with colormatched border. Hard to tell isn't it?

I don't think I will put the chrome trim on but if I can find one I might.

Does it look better with the chrome trim? I kinda like it this way

I like your gunmetal TSX wheels. Did you get it painted or powder-coated?

Ahhh well everyone thinks my halos are crap. I can tell ya'll this though, if you could see them at night time, you wouldn't say they are cheap looking. I have OEM Audi equipment retrofitted into these headlights. Yes, Valeo ECE D2S projectors, Genuine Phillips Ultinon 6000K bulbs. They are brigter than the Inspire headlights I am sure of that.

If I can find a set of Inspire headlights, I might think about swapping but for now the performance of these headlights is above amazing.

If I am crazyy enough, I might just take them apart and paint the black piece in black chrome. Maybe that will make them look classier?

You mean to open the headlights up you use the oven? Or you use the oven to black out your headlight? Sorry but I don't get it completely

How much does that bumper cost?
Also can you take more pics of your car and post them on here? From different angles would be nice. You have only one angle of your car as if there is something wrong with it at other angles.

Well, there is a problem. I got a butt load of primer spots. Due to a whole bunch of dents. I can take more angles if you guys don't mind the primer spots and dirt right now. Also, the bumper only costed me like $250 but shipping was the main problem.

Dents where? I don't mind seeing some pics at other angles of your car even if it has "primer spots" I probably can't tell from a picture anyways unless you do a real micro close-up. Which is not what I am asking you to do.

If you could please, take some more pics at different angles showing off those nice headlights and foglights. During the day-time PLEASE
Thank you

Jaaaa-Pannnn haha jk

You can get them from Thailand or Malaysia if you know people who lives there or is going to be doing business there.

You can find the headlights and side mirrors from ebay or boomplustoys. These parts are not easy to come by because no one imports them and there is like no market in the US for these. If there is one, it may be very small, so small that no one is willing to venture into importing them.

Actually, Option Auto has the Inspire headlights on there website. Yeah I can take more pics for you at different angles. Just to let you know my digi camera is retarded. Will have pics tomorrow. The primer spots are very noticable due to the fact that my car is Satin silver and the primer spots stick out like a sore thumb.
