Default another newbie

My wife just purchased a red 09 V6 FWD and we love it.
I want to make some changes to it and believe it or not she's going to let me!!!!!
1. color match the grill and fog lamp bezels
2. chrome the stock 20" wheels
The grill is massive and looks like it's smiling at you. We saw a Camary on the lot with a color matched grill and it looked alot better.
Has anyone found the front head rests uncomfortable? After an hour of driving I had a headache I then swapped the rear ones to the frt and what a differance. I feel sorry for the people that have to ride back there now. lol

Thanks I will keep you posted. I would still like to know if anyone else finds the head rest uncomfortable.

NICE JOB ON THE RIMS !!!!! How did you get them chromed????? I have the 4cyl and I like the rims ok, I bough 20" rims (as seen on my pic page) and they are great but I only use those in the summer and back to the factory's in the winter time. I am interested in doing that to my factory 19's. Let me know. I also like the idea of the grill, excited to see pics of that when you get that done also. --You also need to join the other venza forum venza.org and post your info on there also. It would be very helpful to a lot of other owners.

Have a Great Day !

There is a company here in Michigan that will put a PVD finish on Venza wheels that look like chrome but are reportedly more durable. My dealer offered me the option of chrome wheels using this process. Cost is about $700 plus exchange of wheels. U.S. Wheel Exchange : Welcome

I got the wheels from WSI in Arizona. Talk to Curtis Price his # is 480-226-3722. The price was good and he just swapped them out as long as the cores are good.
I will have the grill done this week. I really think it will look alot better. I read a review about the Venza and someone said the grill looked like a mutated Mach III razor. lol
