I finally found time to get a good wax on her so here are some new pics. I'm still waiting (4 weeks now) for D3's carbon fiber blade wing to get delivered.

Here's the link to the whole set http://www.flickr.com/photos/29560095@N07/sets/72157626694203487/

I would love to give my opinion without starting a war...
Personally, I just hate that blacked out overkill, it cheapens it. Looks like a ghetto honda.
Sorry, IMO.

Looks killer. Still think that you should return the logos to stock though- even the wreaths.

Different strokes for different folks. But isn't that what makes an automobile so attractive to most of us??

Probably too much for this old man too...but were I a few years younger that would be a look I would like to emulate!

Nice work...why so slow on the carbon fiber blade? That just seems to be too slow for a car guy like me. When I want...I want now...regardless of the logistics or price.

I call them about twice a week asking for the status and it's always "a few more days." I understand that there are sometimes production issues regarding a new item, but I ordered it the day they made their public release and I'm still waiting :(

Also, I welcome all opinions regarding the look of my car. Obviously, it would be nice if everyone loved it, but I didn't get the car to make other people happy. Personally, every time I see a set of chrome rims (on any car) it makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

is it a film/paint over the lights front and rear?

Yeah, it is paint.

Interesting. Does it effect the light output much? Applied to the outside? What is the product called? Removable?

Sorry for so many questions.

Sorry for so many questions.

1. Doesn't affect the light output that much IMO.
2. Applied to the outside.
3. Paint. It's just regular automotive paint with some clear mixed in.
4. Don't think it's removable in any convenient way. Could wet sand it more to lighten it further.

Very nice!

I have a date today with the V and Griot's full polish.
