I love the sound of my 16, but the 20 is really how the car should have been delivered in 16.

Love the ride, any reason you went with m performance carbon fiber mirrors over other brands? Gonna be getting some soon but not sure if I should save cash and go for like x-ph for $150 or shell the extra cash and get the m performance mirrors.

Please give us an in depth review of the akra. Maybe some sound clips if available. Seriously considering it for the piece of mind of having more sound and no drone, but the 7k price tag is making me think hard on it vs say just the M perf exhaust and a downpipe.

Thanks!!!!

Eta... how much did you pay for the akra perhaps there is better deals the. Iíve seen online for 7200ish

I've seen some really bad carbon fiber, and prefer to pick up oem products if available.

It's been awhile since I have updated my build.

Prep for Full Car Wrap in Xpel Ultimate Plus



After all the packaging was removed we moved on to wash and prep (decon, claying, polishing)


Xpel Ultimate Plus installation - Full Car


Final shots (more shots coming, was in a rush to get it wrapped and to my mechanic for suspension etc)

BlendMount set up with my Escort Passport 360 later today.

Here is a discount code from Blendmount Click here for the promo code

I picked up this one for my set up make sure you pick up the one that works for you Blendmount

Mirror Tap go with the 12 inch one.

Super easy to do with the mirror tap - remove the mirror covers, jump the power/red cable to the green and yellow - and the ground/black to the black and brown cable.

Very impressive, attention to detail or in this case DetailersDomain is unsurpassed from others I've seen. Is all this work, parts, labor more or less than $15k?
