So Iโ€™m driving it now for about 4 months and im already being annoyed by the amount of T-Rocs here ๐Ÿ˜‚ which is why I wanna make it mine. For winter Iโ€™m looking at these JR18 17x7 ET40 wheels in matt black. I want to keep the dimensions stock because of legal reasons. After the wheels Iโ€™m planning to get a whole chrome delete everywhere, maybe even the badge and some light smoke on the headlights? What do you guys think? Any recommendations? Here are my amateur photoshop pics:

With the JR18 wheels but in 18โ€™

Looks well!
It's funny years ago trim was black because it was a cheaper finish and chrome came on luxurious cars, now it's gone in reverse :lol:

Doggy is the biggest modifier on this forum.

Wouldnโ€™t tint lights, reducing visibility and am sure insurers would not be happy.

Thanks! I know right ๐Ÿ˜‚ thatโ€™s why Iโ€™m worried that it will maybe look โ€œcheapโ€ but I love the blacked out look so idk, at least I will be able to peel it off if I wont like it๐Ÿ˜‚ was reading Doggys forum just yesterday! But thanks๐Ÿ˜„
