    Me - I like the single color look - all black. But I'm DGM. If I had Blue, I would not want red letters on the side - I don't think they fit the theme. I could see the blue looking good.

    Same here I like the single color look since I was just going all black on everything. I think on a DGM white or black car a red or blue emblem would look good if it matched the calibers.

    Night shades you can get it at advanced maybe even walmart. Dont over do it mine look really dark in the picture but are lighter in person. You still want people to see you stopping though for sure. Also I used a clear coat over top to slow fading.

    Just pull off the whole piece that is right behind the fender. Literally pull the side skirt away a little bit, and then pull the whole trim piece off, it's just pop pins. There's probably a DIY or YouTube video on it, just like the bumper removal.

    Just did mine this afternoon with hand cut vinyl. Looks good from anything more than a foot away!



    Might cut them again to get it better up close, but looks great on the silver.
