2009 Camry SE I4 MGM
Did you ever order the R4 decoders for the 9005 DRL / high beams ?? Your lights will look even better.
I personally have not been fond of the Gen 6.5 facelift. The Gen 6 is much subdued and with an RK Sport body kit it competes the look. The facelift may be better for the SE though.Excellent restore/upgrade job! I bought an `11 SE V6 with black leather interior. What a transition color makes from my 07 XLE with grey interior and odd light colored faux-wood trim. My first task was to add radar detector and a Gentex mirror. I wired the mirror to only function Garage Door buttons while car is ON as I didn't want another security risk. The same power source went to my radar detector as well. It sits comfortably behind the Gentex mirror and it might be just a one-off but seems to be much more precise sitting hidden behind the mirror.
If you haven't already replaced your headlights, do yourself a favor and avoid replacements for the 07-09 models and get a Gen 6.5 kit. These are WAY better and only require a slight notch cut from your bumper to install properly. Some other guys around here have done it with great success. The 6.5 kits are easily found on Ebay and Amazon.
Here's the one I'm eventually getting: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075R6FF2G
I was the same way. Hard set on the Gen 6 design, but adding the Gen 6.5 headlights to a Gen6 bumper is invisible as the un-notched section of the bumper hides the 6.5 headlight bulge. It will appear as you have a custom Gen6 headlight. It's hard to explain without pictures, but the lower line does not change. The cut is on the flat edge to allow the headlight to dip below. I was headed this direction with my 07, but wound up selling it after I bought the 11.I personally have not been fond of the Gen 6.5 facelift.

I do 100 miles a day, highway speeds, up and down big grades. You need to blow that thing out every now and then, get the RPMs up for a stretch at a time.What is your commute like? How long or short?
I'm trying to figure out if I have an issue. Had a check engine light for Upstream A/F Sensor, replaced that cleaned the MAF filter. All DENSO.
My car only is drive a twice a week for about 11 miles and to the gym every day about a mile each way.
Over all it spends more time idling then driving. I get around 14-15mpg. No check engine and engine is smooth

Thanks for the reply, yea mine is complete opposite. I work from home so no commute. If I do like 50-60 miles every few weeks, that's an accomplishment.I do 100 miles a day, highway speeds, up and down big grades.

Why not use something like a carpet cleaner machine? Need a super super strong sucker.Taking off the seat cover is not a job for the faint of heart. It is a chore to get it back on.
If you haven't put a hole in it, you have not try hard enough. I usually try all the safe stuff, than bring out the big gun like gasoline and nail polish remover. LOL By the time I'm done, there won't be any fabric left for the stain to stain. LOLI have no idea what the hell is the stain on the right, but it defeated everything. I even put color safe Clorox bleach in the wash every time it ran, so it got the super Tide pods plus that each wash cycle. Oh well. Looks better, quite a bit better. Just bugs me.
