    Is it just black or a carbon fiber wrap? Car looks clean! Did you make the wheel arch flares or buy those??

    The service advisors sort of had question marks over their heads but after a brief explanation were interested in the idea. I already enabled cruise through the etacsdecoder software. Strange that I could enable that, but not fog lights. That program needs more work.

    It is carbon fiber wrap. I bought the flares online. They are carbon fiber looking but they are made of a nice rubber.

    Nice. Another Q... What car is your tow hook from? I ordered one for a Lancer a couple months ago. Still waiting for it to arrive. Frustrated. Some of them stick out far from the bumpers and some are nicely tucked close depending what car they are ordered for.

    I ordered one for a lancer and it did not fit. The hole on the car is too big for the bolt that comes with the hook. This one is from a Yaris. I do think that it is about an inch too long.

    I know. I tried different things to try and make it work but nothing did. The only good thing is that I have an extra hook now in case the one on the car gets damaged or worn since it unscrews from the post. I may have it cut and welded so I can make it an inch or so shorter, maybe.
