      Hello everyone,

      I am going to dedicate this thread to all the mods I will be doing on my Tig. Originally I was planning to leave it stock but I just cant help myself, lol. My mods will mostly be cosmetic (for now). Here is the list I compiled:

      1- Xpel headlights/foglights shields (installed)
      2- OEM door moldings (installed)
      3- OEM back up camera with module (installed)
      4- OEM Rear hatch aluminum molding (installed)
      5- OEM Side steps (may be)
      6- 3M Clear Bra (installed)
      7- Bull bars (can't find any yet)
      8- Euro Switch (pricing out)
      9- OEM aspherical mirrors (installed)
      10- Individual badges (received)
      11- OEM R-line door sills (installed)
      12- OEM stainless steel mirror caps (en-route)
      13- Fog light chrome bezel (looking for)
      14- OEM rear underride guard (pricing out)
      15- Hood Air Deflector (installed)

      As you probably already noticed I prefer OEM accessories over aftermarket (with the exception of a few items such cross bars and xpel). I personally think they have better fit and finish.
      So far the only thing I've installed is the Xpel which I must say fit perfectly. The cut and quality is excellent, well worth $45.00 especially when MSRP on your headlights is over $1200 each. I took some pics (see below) but you can't even tell its there unless you touch it. Installation was a PITA but it all worked out great. A heat gun is a MUST otherwise you won't be able to lay it properly due to a thickness of the film, which I must note is pretty thick. I'll be posting more pics as I progress with other mods
