Whats the name of that paint color? I like it, and are those LEDs you installed giving off a blue light or is it just the picture.

I bet you can't wait for those HIDs to come in ha? Looking forward to the install?

That Paint color is the Transition Blue Metallic exterior... It's what I have and i think the poll landed around 20% of the members have it. Seems like the more often posts are by red, white, or silver ones though :).

I like pretty much all the colors that I've seen; no more of the funky ones mixed in like the early '00's had w/ GM IMO.

Well done! How do you like the HIDs compared to the halogens?
Man i love the color, i put 6000k's in, gives off a nice bright white. Much better than the amber color. I took the pic with my iphone, ill try to get a better one with my digi cam

Looks good, and I see you did the "lower grille chrome trim the factory forgot" mod like me.
Silver/FLR:

Did you guys just add a chrome door stripping to the stock grille fin?

I'd love to do this to my Taupe LTZ... Complete the lux look since I'm going to work like hell to avoid my front Ohio plate, since mine came without any holes, or the pre-mounted frame. I'll at least wait until a cop makes me put one on.

Yup, its just a cheap piece of chrome door stripping from Checkers Auto Parts store. It was about $10 for a few strips, i only needed the one. And in AZ where i live, i do not need a front plate, so mine didn't come with one or have holes to deal with.

I have not put tint on my Malibu yet but I am seeing more and more guys showing their windows tinted and I am starting to like the look! I have thought of doing it but I need to decide on what Tint % to put on if I do decide to go ahead and do it. I have been holding out on this because for awhile I was not sure if I was going to trade the Malibu but since I have decided to keep her, I just might have it done now. I also would like to upgrade the headlights. I find that the OEM lights light-up the road pretty good but I have seen a Subaru with LED lights go by me on the highway and it made the Malibu lights look dim as hell. I had seen and talked to the Subaru owner at a gas station we both stopped at and he said it cost him $600.00 for the full set up including the fog lights.

PS. I like the LIMO tint that you have on your Malibu, Looks good!
