    Ring is back to black. It was too cheesy for me.
    I think the all white look is way cleaner but whatever floats your boat.

    Looks good but how come you can still see one yellow cap in there? Or is that something else? My puny brain can't remember what's there...

    I do like the idea and the look (from a distance anyway), but I have some major issues with the exposure of wires (brake light) and tubing (rear window sprayer) needed for this to work. Would you be willing to ditch the additional rear brake light and the sprayer for this?

    I think it is too expensive & not all that functional.
    And yes,legally you have to have a 3rd brake light.
    Yeah I'm with them. Not only is it illegal to not have a 3rd brake light, but it's not functional at all and with that gap in there it makes it look like you just have a poorly fitting ricey part.

    This made me laugh (from Perrin's site):
    Fitment Note
    Because your wing is now taller we have to limit the travel of the trunk lid. The PERRIN kit includes two high quality stainless steel wire limiters to reduce the travel of the trunk lid by about 25%, preventing contact between the wing and the roof of the car.

    Um high quality? They're a couple of cheap stainless steel wires with crimp fittings on them!

    What was the reason for adding this? Just for appearance I assume? I doubt it really adds any performance benefit for a non-race car. Looks pretty neat though. I've always been partial to the look of rear diffusers or similar things. I would have gone with a true rear diffuser though.

    Personally I think black wheels look really cool on a white car.

    I ran black wheels on white cars when it was cool a decade ago.

    Its not that I dont like them because I still like black wheels, I will admit that.. I just dont see the point in running a nice attractive wheel in black. You can only tell its a great looking wheel when the car is parked. Otherwise whats different between it and a stamped steel wheel while moving?

    So you're saying Halle Berry while she's moving isn't attractive? And she only looks good in a still picture?

    Thanks for all the comments, fellas. Yes, the rear underspoiler is just for aesthetics. The 1 yellow piece is the oil dipstick. I love my black pf01s...but I will be changing it up soon. I am definitely not doing that Perrin wing kit. I am way too anal to let that tube and wire show. Black Sti sideskirts are next.

    Cobb tbe is a solid product - great quality, fitment and welds. it does drone quite a bit and afterfires though, so expect some noise.
