Very nice! Love the way the car looks. The only thing i would change is have the front license plate removed and cover the holes with plugs.

The 2011/2012 front end looks so much cleaner without it!

Will do... The lumincs 5050K is the closest I can find that matches the stock HIDs

I'm still waiting if there will be any other lip available for the 11-12 model years. I'm hoping for one pretty soon.
