    Do you mean spoiler will be available but badge isn't?

    Pedals should come installed.

    Its possible that they are now out of pedals as well and they will be ordered and installed like the others at a later date.

    None of them will be available on delivery day.

    I’m most disappointed about the spoiler. Will see what my PPF installer suggests since I’m going with XPEL Stealth. Would prefer the spoiler be installed directly on the paint. I’ll probably just leave the trunk unprotected while waiting for it.

    I had pedals preinstalled. Not sure why your car would be different?

    PPF installers don’t think it’s an issue to attach the spoiler to the film. I think protection will be more complete that way. Wrapping around the spoiler would be awkward?

    Congrats!!! Seeing as Montreal is not that from Chicago and I'm a current owner who reserved on day 1, I'm hoping the email is coming my way soon.

    As for the wrap, I'd also guess it's better to install the spoiler on it. The same way they apply the T over the wrap I believe.

    Probably a shortage of pedals now too. lol

    I'll see what my PPF guy says about the spoiler. Heck, the film has a 10 year warranty and it's not easy to get off. I'll just hold off on ceramic coating for the trunk lid if anything.

    This is what you have to do, as the adhesive will have trouble when there is a ceramic coating under it so wrap it ASAP and coat everything but trunk lid and then when it comes have the trunk lid coated.

    Cant wait to see the result, as stealth on silver looks insane, but black is my color.
    If I did not get black I would get silver/white interior then stealth wrap/chrome delete/lowering

    Sharp!!! Yeah I would have loved a stealth black, but even with that, winters here in Chicago are cruel and it would look dirty more often than not even with all the protection. lol

    Curious. What’s your plan for wheels/tires? I’m thinking of doing the matte black 20” TSTs for summer (potentially staggered) and then mounting a winter performance tire on the 20” OEM wheels (like the Pilot Alpin PA4) which I would have previously powdercoated.
