I like the look of the RA/R "mod" (hard to call it a "mod" I think...), so I picked up some stripes of my own and went to town. I don't actually recall anybody doing the bottom spoiler on the front, but I did and I think it looks great. I also did the side vents - I'm kinda on the fence about them - and the rear exhaust area.

I like subtle accents on things and not the "in your face I'm about the bling" kind of look, and I think this suits that well.

What does everybody here think? Side vents: keep it? Exhaust area: lame?

EDIT: I forgot specifics. I used 1/4" on the exhaust and 1/8" on all the rest.

Thanx for the feedback, guys. I really wanted to figure out a way to do the front bumper side vents and the hood scoop, but when I played with it in Photoshop it looked like it was WAY too much. So here's where I left it.

There is no escaping this; you require moar low.

I like the upper grill pinstripe a lot, undecided about the lower one though... I don't think the vents behind the front tires really should have that pin striping. The exhaust border is unique, from the pics I'm not sure if you would even see it.
Debadge everything and keep the top grill pinstripe is what I would do.

Yeah, it's really really subtle. I even used the wider stripe for it. Probably can see it but not notice it. Just a little flare of character, that's all.

I wish my stationwagon had the rear bumper of the sedan - that would have given me something to work with at least. I feel like the rear end of the wagon is pretty bland, so it felt really really unbalanced to do more stuff to the (already) characteristic front end without touching the back. Maybe they'll give us some rear vents or something in the next iteration...

I think it looks good. The narrow striping you used doesn't stick out too much and is nice and subtle. I'm not sure about it on the louvers in front of the doors or on the front lower scoop on the bumper cover though. It looks great everywhere else. If the front lower scoop had a screen in it then I think it would look great like it does on the upper grill, but it just looks now like you're putting makeup on a pig since that spot doesn't look great to start with.

Interesting... I was thinking this morning what everybody's beef is with that lower spoiler, but you gave me that info from your perspective, so thanx! To me, I think it draws the eyes inward, making you understand the depth of that lower spoiler - that's why I like it. I get what you're saying about the grill, though. I'm pretty sure I've seen a lower grill mod on here somewhere... Anybody have a link handy?
