Nice cleas sub install, always ood to have a great sounding system without limiting your cars storage space. I did something similar with my 9000 install when I had that car.

There is a product called nightshades that is a spray on tint. It costs about $10 bucks and you can usually find it at tuner shops or order it online. Pretty easy process. Push the lense forward and it pops out of the housing. Twist the bulb to remove, paint with about 3 coats, and return to car in about 3 hours.

If you're not going to upgrade your brakes to BBKs, the Nogaro's are one of the best looking rims around. If not, its going to be a PITA to find a set of BBKS to squeeze behind those rims without using spacers.

but I love the way they look though

yes i used nightshades 3 coats is good just make sure you spay it on when the temerature is in the mid 70's if its too cold it fisheyes or too hot it runs. good thing is if you make a mistake rubbing alcohol takes it right off.

i have the nogaros on now ill post up some pics if it would ever stop snowing
yeah i dont think im doing a BBK (lease) but i wish i could find some power slot or similar brand rotor for the 06 up.

Great! I am using OEM'd Brembo 314mm Rotors. I had them slotted at a machine shop paired with stock pads. It has a got a slightly better bite than just stock.
