Another piece to the puzzle has been acquired! Want to give a huge shout out to Mike Wu at Airdrie Honda for hooking me up with this. It wasn’t really in the plans anytime soon but as fate would have it… Here we are.
Airdrie Honda is actually like 5 minutes away from my house and I had scheduled the first service to be done there. I knew Mike worked there and although the first service is literally just an oil change, I would much rather have someone who I know and trust and knows what they’re doing to do it. Although he’s not a lube tech, he agreed to help me out. He took good care of the car, sanitized it down after he was done and checked everything out for me.
One thing led to another and the topic of this OEM grill garnish came up because I saw that one of the showroom sedans had it on as an “appearance package”. I asked him about it and next thing I know, it’s arrived today – pretty much 24 hours from when we talked about it.
It’s a pretty simple piece that adds a lot of character to the car and you really either love it or hate it as it stands out a lot. Adding a red “eyebrow” to a white car is pretty much a statement piece. The piece only comes in Rallye Red and at first, I wasn’t too fond of it but over time, I began to like it and now I absolutely love it.
I think it works well if you there isn’t too much accompanying red on the car to feel like it’s overdone. I feel like with the red pinstripe, it would’ve been a little too much. I think with the other exterior piece I’ve got coming in, the front end should be a lot more balanced once it’s all done.
Ahhh I love it. So aggressive.
