Hey folks!! I took my car to my local detail shop yesterday in Goldsboro, NC. If you are near, I recommend them. The guys at Wash Tech Auto Services did an amazing job. Got some during and after pics. Of course it rained today for the last pic. Enjoy..

Don't you just love that you can get the weather from just about anywhere nowadays from tablets to the cars themselves, and yet they still can't give you the correct information on when its NOT supposed to rain?
Very nice ride however.

Is your car a 2008? It looks just like my car, all the way down to the wheels, except mine is jet black. I was thinking about powder coating my wheels with a jet black finish. Has anybody ever seen these wheels in black?

Yes, it is an 08. I've seen one, but IMHO don't like it. I like how the wheels, when clean, will contrast against the dark color of the vehicle.

I know! That's why I'm torn. I want to see what it'd look like first. If I do get them powder coated, I'm going to do the black kidney grills and smoke the light lenses. If you're going to go all black, you might as well go all out with it, I guess.

The grilles are two pieces, the slats and the outer ring. You can pickup a set of matte grilles and switch the parts or paint your chrome slats black.

NP. Just be careful when you take them apart since the tabs don't take much to break. Minimal force is needed to take them apart.
