    • Custom Steering Wheel
    • Charcoal Alcantara Headliner

    Exterior:
    • Red Calipers
    • Chrome Delete

    Wow...what a refresh! The front fascia looks perfect.. As do the headlights.. Can you give a ballpark cost for the interior vs the exterior!
    Awesome for sharing

    Looks great! Considered unplugged but went with Tsportline for the refresh bumper. How did you do the headlight?
