Spend the past two days throwing all sorts of new goodies on the car:

-Stealth bulbs
-CF access panels
-CF door panels
-CF roof
-CF Reverie spoiler
-V1 mounted bracket
-4 pt Schroth Harnesses
-Tow Hook

Got the windows tinted as well and I am just so incredibly happy with how it all came out! Thanks to yak52pilot for most of the parts!

All the CF parts

Thanks for posting the pix! Love carbon fiber, and wondered how the carbon access panels would look on a red exige. Now that I've seen them, I don't think they're for me.

But you sure got a lot of new TOYS for your car! Coolness...
Cheers,

Beautiful! :clap:

Tell me, did you do the window tinting yourself? If so, how easy/hard to do? I've done my own on auto's past, and this job LOOKS like it would be fairly simple (and CHEAP - these windows are so small! :D) - but my son thinks I am nuts for even thinking about it. Most expensive/"exotic" car I've ever done it on was a Mitsubishi Montero. :rolleyes: LOL.

Although I do have to say, when I sold that Truck, the buyer actually asked me why the "FACTORY TINTING" was not showing on my original sticker/BOS! ;) I must do at least reasonably good work.

Like what you've done with yours!

okay let's see if I can answer all the questions.

Exhaust is an Arqray Titanium single tip exhaust. I've got the Larini de-cat pipe on there as well. It is ridiculously loud, back fires after hard acceleration, and just screams when you get on it. I personally love it. I've got a gsx-r 1000 with a straight through exhaust and they are roughly similar in terms of decibels when you get on it.

Front splitter is likely going to be the next mod I get just to balance the downforce on the car.

Window tint I had done at a local tint shop. I paid 140 for both windows, but I've got a lifetime warranty against bubbles, fading, etc. They filed down the edges to blend the tint into the window, and I was really impressed with the outcome. I'm sure you can do it yourself but I wouldn't really know where to start there. One thing to keep in mind is since the car is so low to the ground and w/ a black interior the tint will look darker than expected.

More interior pics coming soon
