Re: Black headlights on R (Street_Volvo)

IIRC, that's Xeno's car - and they were painted.

Re: (-Pascal)

Besides the ones I posted, go to search. Leave the fields blank except check off "archived posts", set the forum to "R Forum", the selection on "Topic Titles" and input into the user field "Xenophobic".

Re: (TWBarrett)

Wow! I went back and looked at his old posts, since I'm new to the forum. That man was amazing. I can't believe how his work looked! And he SOLD the R! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> If my R looked like that, you have to kill me to get it.

i like the black grille and headlights I am actually going that route in the near future myself. on the 04s it makes it match the trim instead of the rims (which you cant see from the front neways) and i like the look. My old prelude was silver with black headlight bezels, black front turns, clear corners, cleared rear turnsignals, gunmetal rims, and tint. i want to do about the same to my R minus the gunmetal rims....i want some polished multispoke alloys i think to contrast since it is Titanium and not silver (so the reverse)
