Replaced the Lower Chrome Fascia and the fog light bezels with Black ones. Sweet.

Thanks to all those previous posters was a breeze to the get fascia off, the fog light bezels totally different story.

I really thought I had this electronic shifter down. Guess not. Lesson learned.

Caused 2500.00 damage to the GC
I did this on the side of the highway and only realised as i heard the gravel noise. Since I put the reversing sensors on they beep all the time when in reverse and speed up when getting closer. At least I have a audio backup now.

Tinted the front windows with FormulaOne Pinnacle series tint...should have added tint to the panoramic sunroof as well.
