Small but nice upgrade

Installed matt black hood vents and Lux Angel Eye H8 V4's this morning. After the installation, washed and did a quick detail.

While the hood vents are subtle, I really like the contrast they provide.

Here are a few pics:





Next up are some carbon fiber pieces: front splitters, rear spoiler, side mirrors

I know.

Can't figure out how it happened or how to fix it.

Will be looking for solutions later...

You have opened up the covers to put your Lux Angel Eye H8 V4's in !
And after you washed your car and water went into your headlight through the cover !
So you need to check that your headlight covers are closed correctly

Actually, it was there before the install.

The condensation started after my previous time washing the car (last weekend). Before that I must have washed the car over half a dozen times with no issues or condensation.

Didn't see any noticeable gaps or issues with the seals.
