Thanks. Although the all black is tricky to pull off as itís easy to make the car look dull and cheap. I second guessed myself a few times as well lol. However with the extra steps are taken, they have a very nice presence about it.

Quick look at my depo smoked led side markers. Loving them so far, they match the front factory corner amber lights. They turn on when I unlock the car, for some reason (very cool feature imo). Dark, but in a subtle way unlike my old depo smoked side markers which look like black tint.

These also angle out, looks very aggressive.

Solid choice on the Depo markers and corner lenses. Looks much better and works perfectly with the dark theme. Great looking ride!

Stumbled upon some old pictures of my car and figured I'd share. This was back in 2011-13, young and dumb days. Still looks awesome considering.

My first set of wheels are Kinesis F110. Very rare and discontinued. 2011
