    Hm, I went 153mph (fastest I've been so far) yesterday (undisclosed road) and it felt exactly the same as before I did it.


    Although I don't recommend going that fast or saying it makes it more stable, just saying it felt good enough for me

    Best part of that statement is your undisclosed road comment!

    Got the mesh in today, pretty much finished them, just need to mount them permanently and paint them black to match. Yes, the side mirror is still broken, the fender still dented, and the bumper not painted. The semi driver's company was dodging my phone calls for 3 days straight, finally had to get my wife to call and what do you know! they picked up. Apparently, a woman's voice obligates a man to answer the phone haha. Anyway, still waiting on the adjuster, hopefully it'll be in the bodyshop by next week.

    Thanks wings. I agree, look way more aggressive, I think the V1 looks too soft, this makes it closer to the V2 (since I can't afford one yet).

    I would have done the fog mesh grilles such that the pattern was in the diamond orientation as opposed to the squared, to stay consistent with the rest of the grille. but it looks great either way!

    I know, I'm an idiot. I realized I made it square instead of the diamond pattern AFTER I bent it.oh well, once its all black it'll be hard to tell

    Can you take more pictures from different angles? Like a little more from the side of the car. No need to wait until it is painted. You my sir are quite creative. I want this!

    ----------

    Your headlight eyebrow and washer cover on the driver side headlight are painted platinum too ?

    Also, where did you get the mesh? It looks stainless?

    It's cool to know that the LEDs contained in the headlights can be wired to function as turn signals. I would consider replacing the fogs with a housing (similar to the v2) and mount some red halo's.

    Re: alittle modification to our front bumper

    Well I'm re-doing the mesh in the fogs to be diamond shapes to match the grille, ill post pics when I finish and mount them. The mesh IS stainless, cost $30 for a 12"x12" on ebay. Im just going to leave it mesh, I thought about putting a projector with a halo, but I like having just the headlights, (not a big "light" fan). Plus, maybe someday ill twinturbo the v and put the filters in that space! Haha if only!


    Update on the repair:
    After calling the adjuster (4 times in 5days) I finally spoke to his supervisor who got intouch with him and now just waiting until he come look at the car, hopefully tomorrow! Almost a month into this situation. Ridiculous.

    I'm not usually much of a light person either. I just know if I'm driving and I see lights behind that are really low to the ground, it usually looks quite aggressive. I also really like the idea you went with. And good luck!
