Quick question regarding you chrome kidneys. Are the sides of the slats chrome or black?
I replaced my original with matte black and am tired of that look.
Thanks

It's not technically M-Track, it's more so readjusting the sensitivity of DSC.

They are chrome. Ebay fitment is 6/10, don't cheap out like I did and get ones that actually fit lol. I had to ghetto fix mine to make them more stable because they were so loose.

2 PC ECS Splitters
Fitment is 8/10, but I taped one side poorly and I hate myself. Used 3M tape and screwed in 2 holes and washers. My front bumper is resprayed so if i try peeling it off, it peels my paint. RIP.

Eventuri Intake
I switched from Dinan so gains wise, I can't really feel too much of a difference. However, the sound is much more noticeable than the Dinan and it looks so good.


Opaque Angel Eyes by Angel Eye Guy
I used to think that angel eyes were so fuccboi, but these opaque ones look so different. It's a little dimmer than the LEDs, but the look is so clean and looks like the newer generation headlights. The white is much cleaner and the fitment is pretty good. Joey, the Angel Eye Guy, is local to me in Socal and he's a super cool guy.




Plasti-dipped Center Console
Broke my center console in the dumbest fashion possible by pressing the hazard light too hard. My friend gave me his old center console since he went arm rest delete kit, but it was in pretty bad condition. I scrubbed off the rubber using Goof Gone and a dish washing sponge, then plastidipped it. Color matches 95%, can't even tell that I painted it and looks OEM.

Trying to decide if I should throw those splitters on my car or just order the one-piece. Any regrets on not going one piece?

No regrets, in my opinion, 1pc is a "cleaner" look, 2pc is "aggressive". Stock bumper is more of an aggressive bumper, so I went with 2pc. If CSL bumper, I would definitely go 1pc.

Those angel eyes side by side to my normal ones, look 100% better. If I wasn't so lazy to remove the headlights, again, I'd swap over to those!
