Replaced all my interior LEDs with the longer flat version. Slight bluish color since these are 6500K vs 6000K for the bullet shaped LED.
No issues with fitment or errors

Something else to look into. Will wait until I get a new front spoiler.

Blacked out the chrome from the door handles w/ 3M 1080 gloss black.

Aside from cleaning with alcohol, the key is to heat & stretch shown in this video. Prevents the vinyl from lifting when pressed in the gap to cover all the chrome.

Decided to apply 2 coats of CQuartz 3.0 & 1 coat of Reload on the windshield.

Thanks for sharing some practical info! Could you provide a link to the side skirts? Also, does it use existing screw holes to install, or did you have to drill?

Thanks!

If you have a Coupe, I would get this. Still have to drill holes but it looks like it uses existing mounting points.

Unfortunately they don't have that for the Gran Coupe. I bought from this seller that had it in stock at their US facility so I received it in 3 days.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/V-Style-Car...53.m2749.l2649

Had to drill pilot holes for the automotive self tapping screws.

From this link, we used something similar to #16 or #24

Decided to re-powder coat the OEM black chrome tips as they were heavily pitted around the rim. Thought I'd give gloss black a try but it just disappears due to the diffuser.





Have a set of 3.5" polished aftermarket tips just waiting for install. Diffuser is in the way, can't tighten the screws|nutz. Grabbed the last set...back ordered till May.





All have 3 coats of DLUX ceramic coating (inner|outer). Can withstand temps over 800F.

Stage 1 loaded. Took less than 2 days to receive the tune. No experience w/ any other tuning company. All I can say is regardless where the Stage 1 tune comes from, its better than Stage 0.

Driven 30 miles so far, 15 - 20 miles were for software adaptation. Extremely happy w/ the result so far. It does become a different car. No DYNO plans as of yet...




Stage 2 will be before the end of the year... Have had this custom catless DP for over a month. RMS also developed my E60 M5 VBAND decat headers.

Useful little dusters. Telescoping handle, bendable tip. Managed to completely dust the interior of the vehicle w/o being inside the vehicle. That's a 1st....

They do. Just let them know & they may ask you to provide a couple of pictures just to be sure.
