I actually went through the painstaking time to paint match my car over the summer cause, I have a un-damaged bumper and mirror caps to paint.

They only color that matched was Sterling grey metallic from Dupli-color.








Mirror caps are done, but the bumper got put on hold due to engine problems. car has been sitting till i can get the engine finished.

thanks, and 100%, I would kill for the Ti Headlights but $4-500 is steep for me...pushed to the future sometime. Preferences are dead on, I wanna focus on the subtle stuff; its no show car. Ive been creeping these boards like a stalker amassing quite the list. Once I clear out our filthy cluttered garage and the weather perks up, game time

flattered, quite the complement coming from someone who thinks I drive a 'sedative'. Mods to come


As I took this I realized I belong to a small group of people who are obsessed with taking pics of their cars! ahahaha

Just heard from the dealership. Had them look over the car to see if there was any damage repaired pre delivery.

Kept the car overnight and took it to their off site body shop, hoisted it and did a thorough check; all is new underneath. No sign of clips changed, damage, masking oir the like. They all concur the colour of the bumper cover is a shade darker. So, will be having that repainted in the next little while.

Note the rear bumpe cover, also plastic, matches perfectly. Seems I just got one that was a mismatch for any number of potential reasons.

At least they are looking after me/it. Very impressed with their responses.
