245/40ZR18s, as I wanted the car to feel smoother on the road. I went with 235s, first, but overall I liked the look and feel of the car better with the 245s, and it protects the rim of the wheel better.

Love those wheels man! Looks great!

Looking forward to seeing finished pictures of that hood.

Thanks, I guess thats what i was asking- if you'd gotten it fitted and painted. Thinking about this one or the Seibon scoop/vented one, wanted to see if anybody had fitted and painted it. Thanks for the pictures though, your car looks amazing.

That seems like a lot? My shop would prep and paint it for about $400 and my opticoat guy would only charge about $50.

Thanks though I have been waiting for a shot from this angle. I was eyeing this hood but it's not quite as subyesque as I hoped.

Paint job was quoted at almost 1000 (and as high as 1500), although that included blending the bumpers and fenders, too. The 3M wrap would be another couple hundred, and the optiguard costs about 3 times as much as the opticoat does.

I am really, REALLY liking the exhaust. The sound is incredible, and there is very little drone even with the spare tire removed.

I have a bit of soundproofing on the floor of the trunk which helps even more, but I don't think it would be necessary if you haven't done a spare tire delete.
