First of all, the carbon looks amazing. I'm going by the place where you got the splitters tomorrow. Did you install them, or did you take your car somewhere to have them installed? If you did it yourself, how difficult was it? Again, the car looks hot.

Thanks.

Wow, I am not a fan of the red but you did an amazing job. I loved the way you are balancing the carbon and the rest of the car. I personally i am not a fan at all of huge carbon pieces on the hood or the trunk. Keep up the good job and post a list of where the parts came from, especially the steering wheel!

Thanks, install of the splitters is very easy. Just make sure you measure twice and drill once... I reused one of the screws that hold the bumper and add another screw and some double side tape.

I got the steering wheel wrapped at JPMCoachworks.

Not sure if any of you are in southern CA, but I went down to Autotecknic and picked up the carbon splitters for $90 total. I don't trust my handy work, so I had then installed at VIP for $60. Thanks for the tips TimeToy.
