Where in NY are you?

Which black paint did you use? Did you do it yourself or did you have a body shop do it. I really like the look.

I live Rochester, NY. I used Dupont Gloss Black with Clear Coat. I had a friend who owns a body shop do it.

Now it looks like an '06.
I know but I like the black side scoop look. The S needed some "Side Profile" attention in my opinion :)

Nice Work.

Getting my 240S soon. Already have all the black bits. Ordered the spoiler not painted, but we will see if they complied.

I know some like all the bits the same color, but my favorite by far is the black bits.

Well done!

Black parts on silver

Been thinking about doing the same, but have held back because I have black stipes down the middle.

Also thought of doing the scoops black with a fade coming forward...

IMHO you need to ditch the stock front splitter and put the S-111 or similar splitter on.

Cleans up the lines of the front lip especially if you have no plans on running with a front plate.

This is an old photo, I've replaced the yellow and green front badge with a silver and black. Again cleans things up and keeps it all silver and black.

kind of hard to run around NY with out a front plate.. especially with a car that attracts a lot of attention. i did it for a month or so then got a ticket for it while parked one day.

Thanks, Besides the Rear Tail Section the only other part was the front splitter. I agree and I dont want to over do it.:D
