I know it probably sounds stupid to get excited about something a lot of you guys started with (glossy black grilles), but when I saw that the 2011 EX came with fogs, glossy parts, and LED mirrors, I was kinda pi$$ed I didn't wait a few weeks for the 2011s....

Now that I've got my SX fogs and grilles, and my LED mirrors, I'm happy.

Check it out:





















And the complete product :D

Good job!!! ...now you need the '11 SX LED tail lights...(me too!)!

Did you buy the mirors complete or mod them to fit?

You're right, I definitely need the LED tails.. They're on my wish list!

I modded the mirrors... And you were also right about the mirror mod not being for the faint of heart... What a pain that was!!! Glad it's done now!

Couldn't agree more... Especially when you're working on the wiring at the very beginning and all the sudden none of your lights are working when you lock/unlock... And it takes you a day to figure out the you blew the hazard light fuse. THAT was frustrating!!!!

...and what he said ^^... Especially with the mirrors. Honestly they took 10x as long as the grilles... grilles were a peice of cake compared to the mirrors!

Thanks for the advice on the mirrors. I'll probably take my time on just one of them for one day and then work on the next another day.

It probably sounds silly for some people especially the SX owners, but having glossy black grilles and 2011 side mirrors is my second favorite mod! Right behind my Eibach's and Motegi's.
