He has a Mazdaspeed that's why his grill is different! Won't fit you regular 3 either.

2013 MS3 (sold) / 2011 MS3 (sold) / 2010 MZ3 (sold)

2014 Lexus IS350 Silver lining metallic/Nav Pkg (current daily driver)

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone...

My newest vice.

Warlord is correct. The process may be the same, I pulled off the inserts, had them painted and put them back on. I choose silver, gunmetal would look nice. I did see a thread in which the back bumper was partially painted, this looked very nice, trying to find that post.

The smiley face never bothered me, I just didnt like how the bumper and entire front end were the same color. I posted a picture of the recent bumper paint job matched to my graphite grey car color. I think it makes it look 100X better, but maybe its just me. Helps to break up the front end and its a different, but better smile. Let me know what you all think.

I got used to the smile but maybe because I don't notice it as much on a black car lol. But Derrick, that sir is a great idea! I would definetely do that or have a bodyshop paint it for me so it matches.
