Finally took a moment and removed the Dodge lettering between the tail lights, always preferred the cleaner look but took forever getting around to it. Now I don't know if I want to leave it as is or use one of the vinyl options from luxe. Now I just need to find a place in Orlando to powder coat my Niche Targa m129 gloss black....

Nice, I did that yesterday after I picked up my brand new 2019 Scat Pack Widebody. I abhor chrome, it looks so tacky on these cars.

I've been looking at these - I think it would look really nice on my white Challenger. However, what I really don't like is the way they they put one of the vertical "support beams" right through the middle of the one headlight!

What brand do you have? I've noticed that some brands seem to have placed the veritcal support beams so that they don't interfere with the headlight/halo at all.

The only thing that concerned me was how much they affected headlight output - have you noticed any reduced amount of lighting from the headlights?

I do think that they look really cool though! They completely change the look of the front end - and for the better!

EDIT: Actually, the closer I look, I think all of the brands may have a vertial support going throught the headlight... That sucks...

I have LED headlights so I do not notice a decrease in their output. The brand is APS via Amazon. That vertical support is hard to get around, it mounts to the grill and without the support it may vibrate too much. Thanks for the input.

Oil change, Royal Purple 5w20 and SRT filter 5038041AA. Engine seems to have quieted down a bit.

Changed the oil & filter for the 2nd time staying with the 6 month oil & filter changes even though I only drove the car 1k miles during the last 6 months. I also tried out my 56" race ramps for the first time and they worked out great.
