in all honesty, that badge less grill cheapens the look of car to a painful level.

it doesn't match the lower grill, and you didn't get your hood notch filled so in my opinion it doesn't look great. the stock grill + emblem looks WAY better than that badgeless grill plus that cheap little plastic bit.

but, its your car.

the VZ are cool. simple and clean. and it's BBS so it's great quality.

it all depends on what you're looking for. would i stop and admire the VZ at a car meet/show? not particularly. but they could give the car a nice look and make a great wheel for performance.

I agree, definately needs the honeycomb grille and bonnet shaving, the grille you have goes much better with the R front. Click image for larger version

Do you have rubbing issues in front and rear or just front/rear?
