    Got my wheels powder coated egg shell black, painted calipers red, and had the logos done in black by RJ's in Pleasanton. He did a great job and even had the lug nuts and caps for the air done in black as well.

    Fabulous--if you don't mind, can you tell me what it cost (wheels & calipers)?

    Off topic -- car looks great. Who did the window tint for you?

    This definitely improved the look. It should be a factory option.

    Nice!

    I'm disappointed that your rotor hats look so nice after 9 months of ownership. Mine rusted out and I had to fix that. Did they sandblast your rotor hats as well or are they made out of different material/coated these days?

    not sure the answer to that Kevin. I think they were in good condition to begin with.
