Call it "The grey thing" with a subtitle "the not so daily daily" for now... I will come up with a better name later, or someone make a suggestion.

Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

I remeber seeing those kits in PVW, advertised with a hot nurse posing beside the car. I still like the kit as well. It was subtle enough to not be over the top, and seemed to be designed around the OEM lines (other than the vent in the fender).

i remember the kit too, and while it looked okay, I remember it being a rip on 4 companies

grille - zender (i think, maybe oettinger)
skirts - caractere
front lip - rieger
rear valence - mattig
