You need to get a proper shoot of this thing once it's done, it looks fantastic.

Wow! Thanks guys!

I have to give it up to D&V in Sterling. They sat down with me, listened to everything I had to say, went over every detail and part that I provided to them, and executed it perfectly. They invited me over for that latest photo shoot while it was in “quality control” and let me knit pick at it, then took down my notes and went back to work. I am told it’s in final stages of buffing.
I definitely had concerns about protecting the paint which is why when it’s finished at D&V it will go to Exotic Vehicle Wraps. They will be applying 2x ceramic coating and full front clear bra with the additional “wear and tear” package which will cover other common chip areas.
Speaking of a photo shoot, I recently did some repairs for a new client and he does photography. He offered to do a shoot of both my Audi and my M so I will definitely post those when I have those to share.
To say I’m happy about it is a major understatement. I cannot wait to get behind the wheel!

Looks killer! Not a fan of black wheels, personally (or the tint). I know you've got a dark/aggressive theme going though. I just think a race silver wheel would look amazing, but the car looks great, really does

Thanks man.
I have never been a fan of black wheels either but I had a vision with the sky blue calipers popping behind them and I just had to go with it. Wouldn’t change a thing.
I pick it up tomorrow. I’ll try and grab some side shots before it goes into the garage.
