A better, more aggressive exhaust and perhaps LED Halo tail lights!

Sometimes less is more!

Here's mine for some ideas.

[IMG][/IMG]

I think if you want a more aggressive look, you need a spoiler and an exhaust. Also with a black car I really think a taillight upgrade is necessary to make them stand out. I think the blackouts just blend in too much. I felt with mine being Magnetic Red that the original taillights just blended away too much as well, which is why I liked the euro tails. Helps to break up all the red.

List of my items are:
ACI rear spoiler
Euro Taillights Red/White with amber bulbs
Chromed Stainless Steel Letter Inserts
Stainless Mesh Screens in Muffler openings
LED license plate lights
Exhaust Filler plate with LED lighting for it as well
Borla exhaust
Painted license plate surround

It may not be everyones taste but gives you some ideas.

If you are keeping the blacked out lights how about the lexan covers that cover the reverse lights and a new cat back exhaust.

New exhaust tips. Get some clear on your tails to shine them up so they dont look so dull.

Hey...my car came with those same Flowmaster tips and they are hard to see. So I found these with a curled edge on them.



But then the baffles broke loose so I ditched the whole cat-back system.

I still have the tips if you want to pay shipping.

But if I were you, I'd just start over.

I like Mr. Bill's ideas. Otherwise, you have virtually nothing to look at back there!
