I like it. I'm planning on getting those side skirts. They don't stick out too much do they? I know on some cars, skirts stick out a little too much and your foot can rub on them getting in and out of the car.

BTW, did you install them yourself? If so, was it hard?

This should help you a bit...I know it's not that great of a pic but...they stick out about as much as the front/rear bumper..

As far as rubbing, mine are SCRATCHED! I don't know if I'm just worthless at getting out of my car or what, but mine are scratched big time. Plus one day I wasn't paying attention or something and I hit a chunk of metal on the road and ripped off one of the brackets for them.
No, they are not hard to install...if you have ANY mechanical aptitude you will have no problem.

And...what do you guys think about tinting the tails to keep the black theme going?

Front or rear :hitlol: ...well, I don't do much/any backing up at night, so I've never had any problems with the rear but once in awhile the windshield bothers me...

hmm, pretty sure that front tint is illegal unless you have a medical condition...

I assure you, my car is FAR from being legal in Iowa...but if I move one state down it would be 100% legal. Funny how that works...

Car looks nice. Leave the tails alone.
I wouldn't touch the tails at all.. they look good how they are.. I think tinting them would be a mistake.
Go for the front lip ;]

Keep the car the way it is. Don't get the front lip that you were planning on getting.
