Your warranty is toast! Kidding. I am sure it will be awesome and worth the wait. You went through the longest roller coaster ride!

Nope you thought about it. Warranty voided. Totally kidding, of course.

Reminds me of when a lady brought her car in for an oil change. Came back a week later cuz the radio didn't work. Blamed my dad's shop. The correlations people make are funny.

I thought I was going to wrap everything with carbon fiber too. Now I think I'm going to paint/wrap everything with a gloss black. The rear end and front both have glossy black. So I think it might look better. I'm still second guessing and maybe you can make the move before me and I can decide off yours. I want to the do the roof mirrors and spoiler though and front what you said you don't like the roof look. Looking forward to your cars arrival to help me out in my own issues. lol ... cant wait.

Depending on the time of day I get the car, I am headed down to get the parts wrapped ASAP. I hope to get the diffuser and splitter early so they can be done before the car arrives.

Overall, I am sure I will do a split wrap on the diffuser. As you can see part of the diffuser has a flat black look, I want to CF those areas. I highlighted them in red.

Good idea with the tape. With the back up camera, that can take the place of my tennis ball (my garage is a very tight fit).

Holy coincidence, I'm in this picture! Guy with hands in pocket on the left looking at the camera (or probably the car actually) with a Kenda black and red bag over shoulder.

When I saw the Black concept at SEMA, I loved the paint but figured it was just a special concept car paint color. Even my dad said, you need to get one in this color and I said "yeah, but it's just a show special". Later I figured out it was the production mosaic black. Once I finally decided to pull the trigger on an order (GMS pricing becoming available pushed me over the edge), I knew that was the color I had to get.

Are you planning on installing the GFX yourself or having the dealer do them? I'd like to see a write up on this as i'm planning on ordering the GFX at the same time as I order the car. if they aren't available RPO by then, I'll have to order them LPO and either install them myself or have them installed.

I have them headed to get wrapped, but will be installing them myself.
