I did a wrap for the first 3 months to see if I would like it.:)
The wrap could not reached the inner confines between the rear lights/grill and the body work, so I had it immortalized by having it resprayed at a local paint shop.:p

Very well done!

I really like the front louvers and the paint change.

Would like to see a picture of the steering wheel when you get a chance.

That's perfecton!

Asked the dealer last week about an Alcantara steering wheel and a few other bits before it ships - haven't heard anything :rolleyes:

I think we need a Mac Mod thread so everyone can see these special features.

Are the front louvers functional?
Not sure if this is true but I was told to understand it reduces front lift by reducing the pressure build up within the inner wheel well.:)

Was told to expect/experience some dust and rain gushing out thru the louvres at speed in more extreme weathers.:eek:

Doug,

There is an MSO thread, can see there most of the MSO upgrades that have been done so far. Just probably needs a little LIFE! ;)

Well RC33 hopefully you live in a region that doesn't have rain or dust, I'm sure it won't be that bad. If that was the case they never would have produced this product to begin with. Must say your car looks great, and I do love the louvers even with the potential issues. ?? Cheers.....??

Thanks guys and appreciate the feedback.

Actually, I live in a tropical country with really clean roads and would expect basically some light mist being drafted out thru the louvres in extreme downpour, i.e only if you drive really fast, otherwise it would not be an issue at all. FWIW, there is a mesh grille built into the inner upper wheel housing to prevent any heavier particles.:eek:
