it's a little yellowish white stock. Looks much better if you switch it out to super whites.

Switched all of the exterior 194's to Polarg M4's much nicer white. I have 8 M4's coming for the interior. going to do the 4 puddles, 2 footwells and 2 trunklights. Then I need something like 4 more to do the overheads. Any others I missed?

so do they fit perfect and look like real pillars??

somebody on this board was saying that there are slight gaps on each side to where you can tell that they are stickers...

There's no slight gap on the sides. Mine were cut perfectly on sides. The only place is the top. If you look at how the pillars are shaped, you can see that the top kinda curves in and leaves a slight gap between the pillar and the top rubber. The CF part does not curve like the shape of the pillar up top so just sits flat. Looking straight at it, you can't tell, but from an angle and up close, you can see the gap. But yeah, they'd have to get pretty close and know what to look for to actually see it.

But just a warning, CF is like crack...once you get the addiction, you won't stop with just the pillars...
