Mods are done!
I have a Pure Premium with a few extras and was not so fond of the Atlas trim. I had a minor scrape and decided it was an opportune time to get a few modifications done.


It could be called a Purenamic or a sort of DIY Black Pack. Really I just looked at a bunch of pictures and opted for some quick not too costly mods. I’m putting a lot of pictures here because I had scoured the forum and other sites to find images that would give me ideas of what I would want and I hope these photos can serve for others in the same fashion. I am including before pictures for comparison and a bunch of after pictures. I had limited time to wash the car today and ran out tire cleaner, so yes it will look a little better when the tires are clean.

So here is a list of what was done:
*Style 4 wheels were powder-coated gloss black from the Sparkling finish
*Grille painted Santorini (from Atlas)
*One bull bar on front grill and front skid plate painted Santorini (from Atlas)
*All mesh on front bumper painted Santorini (mesh behind fog lights, mesh between bull bars (from matte plastic)
*Side vents painted Santorini (from Atlas)
*Atlas trims on bottom door (sidesills) painted Santorini
*Trunk strip (waist rail?) painted Santorini from Atlas
*Rear bumper bottom trim (skid plate?) painted Santorini form Atlas
*Front and rear OEM mud flaps

Cheers!

Looks good. If you don't mind me asking. How much did it cost you to get the wheels powder coated black? I was looking to do the same or to buy new wheels. I assume powder coating will be a much more affordable option.

$125 per wheel is what I paid. They can finish them a few different ways like black or gunmetal. I'm very happy with the results , they photograph well but look better in person. I was very surprised with all the attention (random stares and comments) the car gets now compared to before the mods. I was not anticipating that.

Great pricing and job on the wheels. I kind of felt screwed at the dealer pricing on mine, but again as I previously noted, they were the ones who broke them down, sent them out, had them done, reassembled them and will have to guarantee them along with the rest of the vehicle for 4 years. So, considering the overall deal on the car, I guess they made a bit more off the wheels than they deserved, but in the end they really look cool. Nice car and a nice upgrade. Love the black grille!

I can't wait to pick up mine!
I had the same kind of plan like you, I thought the parts where gloss black, but this looks better.
Do you have a picture straigh from the front?
