So I decided to get the 08. They agreed to change out the wheels. I will post pics soon.

Looks 1000% better with the wheel change. You can repaint the center console pretty well with SEM satin black interior paint, followed by a top coat of their satin clear. The door pulls are somewhat different with multiple layers, so if you don't want to take the trouble to strip them all the way down to the bare black plastic and repaint, best to vinyl warp or hydrodip them. Hopefully there aren't any pieces missing behind that aluminum grille, but if so, let me know, as I have some spare parts.

So I got the grille off. It turns out the original grille pieces were in the back with the spare. Also as a bonus as I was searching the car I found original books, spare key fob, and 2 quarters!

Good for you. I'm pretty sure you need to pull the bumper off to get the grille bars back on, but that's a quick and simple task.
