Wheels should cost you around $400

Complete black out kit from big worm graphix is $100
The full kit covers the head lights, side markers, tail lights, reverse lights, turn signals & fog lights.
If you only want to black out the tail lights it's $35

Bowties/emblems should cost you nothing. I did mine for free twice. Go to a local sign shop and ask for scrap vinyl in whatever color you want and do it yourself. A hair drier, soapy water, and an exacto knife and you're done in 10 minutes.

I'd say somewhere around $150-200 for window tint.

I agree that all this should only cost you about $700-800.

As for caliper color, I suppose I'll give away my idea lol
I had wanted for a long time to do antifreeze green as an accent color. I'm still in love with black and antifreeze so I think that would be a great color combo that nobody else really has.

Yeah I'd say do it yourself and save $500. Shop around for the same set-up and see where they compare locally. I know for a fact you could tint the windows and get vinyl for way cheaper than that.

The hardest and most expensive part is probably the wheels. and it should be around 400. I did mine wheels/ center cap and bolt for 430. This is all inclusive service. Meaning i dropped the car off at 9am, they will take out the wheels, take wheels to tire shop to unmount, powder coat, mount/balance tire and put wheels back on. I pick up the car at 4pm that day.

Thanks for all of the messages guys. I decided to leave the powder coating of the wheels and tint to the shop. I heard a lot of good things about Mike the powder coater and he has been awesome to work with thus far, so I am going to have him handle the powder coating in Bentley blue.

I wanted to stay away from the crazy colors as it's just not me. I think the blue and black will look nice. I know some people don't like the all blacked out look but you can't beat it when it's clean.

I also just picked up some p13 bulbs from AAC Style and the wiring to have the DRL"s run with the Halo's if i'd like. I will post some pics of the mods above once I get underway.

Thanks again guys

My Caroline, I just saw the antifreeze green on Mike's website as well, you had to go and throw a wrench in my plans didn't you? That also looks good.

So what do you guys think, blue or green?

Hahaha like I said, I had been holding out because I think that green is absolutely stunning, but I've decided to hold out on modding my car until I can get a good job.

Because I won't be putting the green on my car anytime soon, I say go for green. It isn't WAYYY out there, but it is a jaw dropping color.

The blue is a great choice as well if you go that direction... Either way, don't leave us hangin, post pics!
