Unfortunately, for BC, we need front plates.

Where I have it, I actually much prefer it over the standard bumper installation.

It also protect my bumper if I pull to close to the end of a parking stall, which is really nice.

Maybe I could take a look at the hide away plate.

I'll throw my hat into the ring:

fsport grille with matching grille surround and newly installed front lip spoliers. Also this was my first post, I'm really looking forward to contributing more!

Looks good! It looks like you painted the grill. As for the bottom, don't paint it because the mesh pattern is different from the top grill so it will look off. I don't have a picture of my grill installed as I just took it off and plan to use a clear plasti dip for the chrome surround to give it a smoke look. Not sure how it will turn out.

Paint I used was Dupli color Phantom gray pearl and dupli color clear coat.
