    few questions for you guys..

    2008-2012 are they the same headlight other than the 12 is now clear with chrome back ground?

    also any idea if these are any good or will they fit the stock holes?

    No, my OEM hole (lol) is filled with chargespeed brake ducts. Those will be mounted in the bumper (open area where FMIC would go) recessed just an inch or so.

    gotcha. You think they would fill the holes I have in the 08 bumper?

    I would imagine so. They are 2.55 inches (65mm) across so if your opening is anywhere close to that you could make it work

    Definitely. Are you planning on running them with the HID kit or just halogen bulbs in the projectors?

    I am getting the HID Kit for the headlights. I just dont know if I will be going to the 2012 headlights or staying with the 08-11.

    The Fog lights I am looking at, can I still tint the lens yellow?

    Are you using precut overlays or paint?

    Because those lenses look small for the precut overlays that are sold.

    I am unsure yet, but they should be about the same size as the oem fog lights

    I dont know why this keeps coming up.. actually I think you might even have posted on it Bo.. the 08-10 and 11-> grills are not even the same shape.. Not exactly interchangeable. At least, not if you want it to look right. The 08-10 grill will fit in the 11 opening but leaves big gaps around the bottom corners. 11 grill wont fit 08-10 cars.

    However, I have a question. Is the grill physically broken? Or just all nicked up? If its all beat up but repairable/repaintable.. I might be interested in taking it off your hands. Shoot me a PM with what you might want for it if you're willing to part ways with it.

    Yep, same mounting and shape and connections. Only difference is the lack of black paint on the inside.
