Hey Fellas,

Well it's been 6 months since I sold my V1... been in hibernation, and low and behold I have returned... picked up a nice Birthday present a few days ago... 2011, 4k miles... already plasti-dipped the side vents and front grille yesterday...

Congrats, Rob! How do you like it so far? How do you compare it to the V1?

If I didn't lease mine, I would have done the grille already. I love the way it looks!

Now you need to black out the fog lights/splitters/rear balance. Or 3M DiNoc them...

Thanks guys. TBJS, It's leaps and bounds above the V1, cant say enough... preferred the manual in my V1, still trying to get used to the auto... just wish it would recognize my damn ipod... thinking about doing diNoc on the trim pieces...

Why did you decide on the auto?

Why did you decide on the auto?

i like paddle shifters... lol, jk... the price was right after much negotiation, and it wasn't far from home... the only manual i found that I liked with low miles was in el paso, tx, but it was an 09... it's going to be my DD for now, and stop and go traffic during my commute is a PITA every day...

Have you ordered the shift paddles that others have installed yet? If I had an auto, I'd have gotten that immediately...

Congrats - car looks great... I think the grill should have been black from the factory, looks much better than the chrome stocker IMO

Congrats. Can I ask what you paid for it?
