Tint the windows for start. Maybe think about lowering or larger alloys to reduce the gap in the wheel arch? To be honest, that's all I would do along with maybe the chrome window surrounds. I think the car looks great as it is and too much would make it look bad. Nice ride...!!!

Oh and maybe clean the dust off before you take a picture. Ha ha But then again if you live in Texas I'm sure keeping your car clean isn't easy. ?

To make a JV LE "your own", I'd say first order of bizness is to swap out the wheelz...after tinting of course (ref my post in your other thread). Lowering would help its stance as well...leaner and meaner; sexier! :biggrin: But if that's too much for your taste (or budget), definitely tint and wheelz.

You deserve a ticket for not having the windows tinted. Then maybe a blacked out set of tails. Nice ride. Don't do too much to it.

dp300 how can i get em & how much??
Well, I was kinda joking. My SRT came with chrome surrounds and I'm looking to black them out. But they don't just come off. I think I have to dipp them or something like that.

Yeah, I'd tint and lower it first. I woudn't mess around with the body (chrome pillars) as that kinda messes up the limited edition look of the car. Ya have to be careful so as not to diminish the value. You don't see a JV at every corner and stoplight ya know.

Post pics of the tint job (and a wash ;) ) when it's done. What % tint did you decide on? In VA it's 50% (a waste) on driver-passenger doors then 35% everywhere else. Most people go 35% without hassle but anything lower than that will for sure get you pulled. I miss the 15% I had on my old Prelude till I got 3 tickets within 2 months.

And I'd love to have those wheels ya got. I dig em and haven't seen any 300's here locally with em on.

Think you could get away with 35% all around and the windshield tinted? Would make it a bit darker and maybe not as obvious since it will all match. The shop I got my ride tinted at tried to get me to do 35% on the front two windows and the windshield instead of 5% with a sunstrip. I told them to shut up and give me 5% lol. 35% is the darkest you can go in missouri for the sunstrip and front windows but the rear you can have as dark as you want. I've had 5% for 5.5 years now and gotten 2, maybe 3 tickets and only pulled over for my tint once. I've gotten a ton of other speeding tickets where they didn't say anything about my tint... Maybe they were distracted after running my plates and seeing my CCW license though lol. I'd say tint and lower to an aggressive stance for sure. I like those wheels and would probably keep them for awhile until you found something that you just had to have. Congrats on a good looking car.

I also assume that if your state is strict on window tint then tinting the taillights is out as well. Maybe try going with a light smoke to blend them into the car better. Check your local state laws too, but you may be able to legally get away with a tint 'pattern' on the taillights where there is still some red not covered by the tint.

Kind of a late post here. Have you done anything yet?

I would suggest lowering for sure. The wheel gap looks terrible...Also here is a thought. I personally love those rims and the color of them is perfect. Maybe you could get the inner part of the grille (the slats) and maybe the rear wing color matched to those rims?

I cant really tell from the pictures but are the window surrounds and mirrors already that color?
