So after a month of waiting I finally got my car back last night.
Just 2 things. The CF front sway bar they couldn’t do bc you have to remove a suspension pieces which then I would need a wheel alignment so have to bring to Audi for wheel alignment.
Secondly, the front headlights were supposed to be slightly tinted in smoke. But the wrap was flawed so they just clear protected it for now. And go back in a few weeks to do. But the rest came out sick!! I will take more pics in the sunlight today bc I’m about to go for a drive.

next up is the performance spoiler, vented rear boot lid and cf steering wheel w paddles.

one thing. I got these side blades from that jackoff Anthony Crisafi. (That’s the only part I received from him). How do you guys like them?The bastard said they were perfect but when inspecting closely just a few spots had some of the clear protection lifting up. Barely noticeable but I notice everything. Do you think they fit the rest of the car? If not I will order a set from Shardul and replace em.

I didn’t want to go overboard and have my car become a cop magnet. So far today I passed a NYS trooper actively gunning w his radar, 3 Nassau county cops, and 1 undercover. I saw each cop look at my car and then turn their head. One of the Nassau cops smiled and gave me a thumbs up.

(and thank you Escort Ci 360 max) for alerting me ahead of time so I can slow down for that trooper on the loop parkway!! Lol. I was going over 100, then I hear the alert thru my speakers and downshifted until I was going 65 when I passed him. Which he didn’t even budge. And I saw him pointing the radar gun at me following me until I was out of his line of sight.

the $3,500 I spent on it has already paid off lol.

Enjoy it it is badass. So your car is black and the expel makes it look matte? So nice. And the gloss wheels and mirrors are such a nice subtle accent!

Thanks guys. Yea wanted to get the contrast look going between matte and gloss going. Matte body, gloss CF and gloss wheels. Then wanted a unique accent which my shop recommended that green. We call it acid green but it’s from Porche color code.

Thanks bro. It really makes a difference. I drove the car today and literally I was stopping traffic on a major road near my house. I pulled into Starbucks and 3 sports cars followed me in and started talking to me. Weird but I got more attention with this car than when I had my Ferrari.
