Guys
Anybody knows from where we can get R style grills with fog lights like this pic?



I would like to have the R style bumper and grills but I do really like the fog lights style too.

Oryx color looks nice while I didn't see it while sun is shinning yet!
My friend borrow me his VRS 18" wheels until I decide which wheels and size I will go for. VRS wheels looks nice but small, it is 18x7.5 ET50 and I am looking for 18x8.5 ET35 or 19x8.5 ET35

Thanks man, I like it so much
I am between the wheel color now; Gunmetal or Hyper Silver. Also, 19" or 18" because 19" is more stylish but will be slower with BT and 18" will be faster but there will be still gap between wheels and arch !!
