Compass in San Diego

Hello All,

I just bought a used 2010 metallic black Jeep Compass Sport. 2.4L 4 cylinder automatic with 40k miles on it. I'll have pics up probably this weekend. I'm thinking about changing out the antenna with a stubby and I ordered a ProClip for my HTC Evo after seeing that another poster had one installed. I'd also like to add a black mesh to the grill as I don't like seeing the radiator when looking straight on and replace the gas pedal and brake with something a little wider and better looking.

welcome! The mesh would look good but a polished billet grille might look even better with the black paint.

Cool, I'm looking to those now. Seems I might have to paint it black.

IMO, I would leave it polished, polished looks sweet against a black car... makes it stick out more.

The only reason I'm considering painting it is all the trim on the outside is black, with the exception of the rims. I guess I could install it polished and roll with it like that for a few weeks and paint it if I don't like it. I do like the inserts that BeDevil79 has though.

I installed the polished billet on my 2010 and it looks sweet against green, I wanted it to stand out also.

Looks pretty sweet. The original buyer put a license plate on the front end so I'd need to fix the holes and repaint it to put the bottom insert in.

Just found out the front plate is required by California law

Thanks, mine are just the standard 2011/12 grille mesh, no mods there... Does look nice though.

Nice! I think it really would look sweet with the polished grille in the, would really stick out.
