          Nope, it doesn't. With new things coming out every few months, we just tend to want to keep adding them.

                I don't get it... Pictures?

                I had it up there before, but I am afraid that the rear sensor will be blocked.

                      Dust

                      Hi,

                      Your car looks awesome. Out of curiosity, how close of a colour match is the metra kit to your stock faceplate? The "door shot" makes everything look flush but the "another shot" makes things kinda look dusty and colours mismatched. Was it just not painted yet?

                      Thank you.
