The wheels look good, but IMO if you get black or matte black kidney grills, the gap won't be as noticeable.

Dont think adjusting the hood latch will do anything the gaps are huge for the grills but seem to be pretty close where the hood and front bumper meet. Whats going on?

That's 100% the bumper. The gap between the headlight and hood is fine.

Not feeling the orange at all, but to each his own I guess. Like the bumper though.

Well, I'm 21, and I enjoy my age. I don't think I got nuts to do these bright color when I'm 40 years-old

It's fun to experiment with colors and I give you credit for doing so. I don't think the red and/or orange works with SSII. I have seen blue accents look good on SSII considering that the color has blue in it. Any other color will clash IMO. Of course Black and Silver will work...

I may be in the minority on this but I do not at all like that front bumper. I have yet to see a car look good with it. I'm a little old-school and prefer the stock euro bumper to almost all of the aftermarket options...

Contrary to what most have said, blue and orange CAN work, ala this "Gulf" themed RS, it looks good when it's done right.



FWIW- I also think SSII and Fox Red is a great combo because of the way the rust/brown/orange (earth tone) hues in the leather compliment the silver/blue.

I agree with Blindside, go with one or the other...

I don't think I did anything wrong, its my car, and I love red wheels with GTS5 bumper. Its not like I did a ugly wide body and huge wing or something like that.
