These pics are about 3 weeks old, taken at the self service wash I use. The car is stock as of now, and has just hit 96K. I waxed it using Turtlewax Ice, which I happen to love. Hope you guys like it.

I've seen some Riv's here and there around my area...but for the most part I'm the only one on the road with one. It is one of the reasons I love it so much, because its rare and will turn heads.

I installed these lights in the fall, but only now did I finally get the pictures developed. Anyway sorry for the low quality of these pics, but my camera is old and I'm not exactly a great photographer...

These pics are big so beware..lol.

Lol I know they're huge I literally just got the CD today put it in and uploaded these to here, not editing or anything, if they need to be made smaller I could reupload them and post links I guess. Thanks about the grille, I went for a billet look using 3M chrome body side molding and going length wise across the grille, followed by the fog lights. At night the reflection off the chrome and the bumper lights up the grille R, which I think looks sweet.

Well I know the look isn't for everyone, but when you pull up behind someone and see the reflection of 4 lights staring back at you, I cant picture not having them at this point. I spaced them apart just enough so the grille dosen't look too cluttered and the R is balanced out ( plus they're shaped like the grille and the R). Another reason for this location is to reduce the risk of them being damaged by being mounted bellow the bumper.

Thanks, Chris! thumbsup Appreciate it.

It's okay to have them a little bigger than that. I went in and bumped them up to 720 x 478. This makes the pics about the same size as the browser window (10" @ 72 ppi).

For some reason your early pics aren't showing up?
