            Looks reallly good! The paint on the lip looks to match up quite nicely too. Your iX is coming along nicely.

                  hahah. at least silver (i think) hides chips well. i think i should've taken ur advice w/ the matte black. i'm 50/50 still.

                    if you go matte black you may as well not run one. since it will blend into the shadow of the car.

                    painted lips are the way to do it.

                          that crossed my mind too. my only thing is i like the black painted on the lower half of rear valence....and from the side......it looks a bit uneven if you compare it to the front of the car.

                              uhm, there's no difference.

                              ix shifter consoles, however, are different. they are taller.

                                really? good to know. i was gonna look for a regular manual console since mine split in an area by the footwell. this makes my search that much harder now! lol
