MCS cosmetic upgrades.

You can't see the front and rear rubber matts, but the checkered mirrors and stripes are on. Beinga perfectionist, it took a while to put on (~1.5 hours) but I got the stripes to within 1mm of where I wanted them.

Why the hell is the car upside down?

I'm off to a 9-10 hour drive to grove city PA in a ford fusion. Wish I were taking the mcs.

Looks fine for me.

Although, I would have just gone with the checkered roof panel instead of that other stuff.

Roof graphics on a car with the big ass sunroof?

I would have just left it alone if it wasn't functional. But I have other shit to buy.

Checkered mirrors don't fit the look of the car IMO, but I'm glad you like it.

Maybe I was just influenced by the Italian Job remake, but every time I configured a MCS online, it had hood stripes and the grill-mounted fog/running lights - but none of the checkered stuff.
