Been all over Southern California, AZ and Mexico about 30 times... gets admired more than anything... no issues whatsoever...
I don't doubt it. I think I am referring to what the other poster might have meant...... At some point, some day, it might just get vandalized or broken in. Not something I am willing to do just to have a fancy unusual car. I will just admire this one and wish luck :)

Negative.... just put the car up on jack stands and went in through the trunk onto the rear lights.. I did have to remove some panels in the trunk... easily pop off

One more question on the front lip spoiler by cmst, do you have to drill into skid plastic behind bumper Or they use existing holes? Do they provide tape and screws?

Yup
From the photos the diffuser looks maybe a hair too shallow for my tastes, and the foils a bit on the thick side but other than that way better than stock and the styling works well with the rest of what you've done.

Concur on the red center caps for the wheels. An overdone accent. If you still want a step up in lightening from the dark metal on black and have some scrap body wrap leftover though that might work, though?

I agree on the center caps... kept the red ones on for about a day and went back to the anthracite color.

Personal tastes aside, I think you car came out really well!

If I had to offer up a negative opinion, only the black around the license plate was displeasing for me. I think the ground effects kits look way better than I would have expected.

Sorry if I missed it, but have you seen a change in range or performance?

Going from a lighter wheel and bigger tire it didn’t affect much the range, but after lowering it and adding the aero kit I get better range at 70+ Highways speeds... im assuming the aerodynamics come into play...

I think you did a great job, car looks sick. I love how it looks lowered but not slammed. Perfect ride height for my taste. I just had the MPP comfort kit installed and only had it lowered about 1/2" as I wanted to wait for it to settle before going in for an adjustment. Would love to get it to your ride height. Could you be so kind to measure the height from floor to fender? Would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much!!! I don’t have the car with me as I am out town for work. I know the front was dropped 1” and rear 1.4” was...
