I think the SLE and up bumper lights would ruin the flow on that paintjob, myself.

Oh yeah.... Clear your corners!!!

TINT, keep the rims and lowered look, shave, new grille and clear corners and you got yourself a winner.

My interior is red for the guy who asked...

I made another to the Supercharged version, I found the picture to edit from somewones post, he posted like 100 pictures so was easy to choose a good pose :P

I didnt take as much time with this one, but looks nice I guess...

That still looks pretty nice, Speedy. Don't know about that chrome around the windshield/windows though.

My SE alrady has the chrome around the windows. When the snow was on it just right, it looked like the chrome even went along the bottoms of the windows. I liked it....

Nice! I'm more of the muscle-car type myself, but that is pretty cool.
Suggestions:
Clear the front corners, switch the headlights out for some from a 96-99, and black out everything but the reflector surface. (somebody posted pics of this a while back, and I'm gonna do it if I keep my current ride.).
Ditch the window chrome.
Tint the taillights.
Instead of 20"* think 18"* with red-line tires, a little bit of old-school flavor.
Instead of painting the grille chrome, cut the honeycomb out of the center and insert some of that screen/mesh like they use for the CTS-V grille. Same for the lower grille opening.
Normally I don't like "eyebrow" blackouts on cars, but with the paint-scheme you've got going there, you could pull them off.

Yea i think if you left the sides of the window black it would look pretty slick, leaving the chrome around the top.
