Default Smoked side markers, and tinted reflectors

Did this on the day I brought it home, haven't had time to post the pics til now. First shot is stock, second and third are taken after the mod. One is with no flash, the other with. The reflectors came out a bit darker than I would have liked. I used model car spray tint, btw. They almost look black in normal light.

Side markers from ecs. Smooth look lens. Matt, how's the ride quality of the KW setup? Was looking at vogtland co, but would like to have the full adjustability. I doubt I'll adjust the height once I get it set, but I may want to stiffen the ride up for auto-x.

I don't like the look of a painted reflector, and can't justify filling it in and repainting my brand new bumper just for that. Cost isn't worth it.

Default Markers look good to me, but I wonder about that ride height...

I know you've had people say this before, and once you get the aftermarket suspsension it's a moot point, but I've never seen that much daylight under a car with the factory sport suspension. You usually can't see the upper suspension arms and that much wheel gap.

On topic, with the Titanium package, I think those markers look pretty cool...

looks good, I'd like to smoke my front reflectors but I like the crystal repeaters as-is.

Default I love the way my car handles, the kw variant 3's and hsport sways firm everything up beautifully.

The KW variant 3's allow for a lot of adjustability. email me if you want to know anymore or even where to get a better deal on them versus retail.

I am still waiting on my side markers from my painter, i decided to smoke the lens as opposed to getting them from ecs, i didn't like how the lenses were still clear with a black background.
