Default VIN 1169 tinted and lowered

This car is freaking incredible! So far about 200 miles although I have had her about a week and have been busy. So far the only mods have been window tint, .75" lowered on stock bolts and side marker blackouts. Not sure what else I will do but she is heading in the right direction.

I did. Took me about an hour in the driveway today. It was a pretty easy process.

Visit RPI Designs dot com.. They have an acrylic kit that comes with double sided tape already applied. It is a very simple install and I would highly recommend. They are a forum vendor

Wow. The silver/black looks amazing! Honestly I haven't seen a C7 that I really thought looked nice until now. Nice combo, nice work!
