Plowed a foot and a half of snow today so grenaded my front lip. Looking at doing predator face updated bumper which I think will look pretty good in black.

How simple is that? Just bumper and lights or we talking entire front end?

That’s just a bumper replacement since it’s made specifically for the 2IS. It’s not even the same as the 3IS, just similar in overall design. I’d swap it out with my stock one same time I switch to winter tires.

Yeah those are an option I do not want. Super dated looking plus I have a 11 so have the factory LED strips in my lights.

Yeah delete the light strips and it's good to go. Black will hide that grille

It does cover the factory tow hook, so guess I’ll be moving the license plate back to center. That kinda sucks but appears they offer a mount.

That bumper looks like bad. Would stay OEM 1000 times out of 1000 before using that.

Lights look way out of place with the bumper.

Delete the plate if possible.

You drive a Lexus, not a Honda, you ain't gonna get pulled over.

It'll look better on a black car.

Japan has a fetish mashing different generations together, sometimes it looks weird, sometimes it looks great.

It’s over $250 now for no front plate, and I got popped for it on our old S40. If they are willing to pull over a Volvo, they sure as **** won’t hesitate a long tube headered growling V8

Window shopping hitches for the GX. Mine didn’t come with one and need to add. Don’t plan on towing anything soon but do need to get a hitch bike rack soon before a Florida trip soon. Looks like they make a simple one with 4 bolts but not meant for towing trailers.

Feel like I should go all out hitch though for towing. Oem or just save money and take it to uhaul?

Uhaul hitch on my crv, it’s fine.

How much is an oem hitch vs a uhaul or curt hitch?

Haven’t priced it all out yet. To just do the “4 bolt hitch” it’s only like $100.

OEM hitches are about $300 or so in parts and I’m not sure how many hours of labor for the install.

Just glanced at the uhaul site and it’s only $277 installed including wiring. That’s not bad.

Actually that uses the bolt one. But says it can still tow 5,000.

Rino, do you need to get the ECU flashed for the hitch install? I know I do on my Jeep if I put on a hitch.

What does the flash do? Shift strategy?

Can you do this through a Torque app or similar?

I know some guys with Ford trucks use a Forscan app for changing stuff using a bluetooth adapter.
