I installed the diffuser and exhaust in my garage. Also had it tinted today with XPel Prime XR 20% all around and XPel Prime XR Plus 45% on the windshield. Need to give it a good wash before I upload some after photos as it's pretty dirty at the moment.
Cool! I'll be looking for photos. Did you have to cut the factory exhaust to install the new one?

No, I did the full catback. Just took off the old and need to figure out what I will be doing with it. Thinking about just chopping it up and tossing it in a dumpster but it's $3400 for a replacement if I do ever need to return to stock for some reason.

You're not leasing?

Since I'm leasing I'm keeping the stock exhaust and will have it installed when I turn the car in.

One of my buddies has a huge car shop and is letting me keep it there 😎

Nah, chose to finance it.

Ordered some detailing products, car is in need of a wash. Trying to decide if I want to buy a pressure washer or not now.

Nice pictures!
I haven't put them on yet but their for the reflector near the front wheels and then the center space between the grills.
Did you ever get these installed? I'm thinking of doing a reflector delete. Where did you get the part? Used a local paint shop to paint?

Google ind, they have them painted already. Takes about 15 minutes to put in. Going to want a plastic trim tool so that you don't scratch the fender.

I got mine at mod bargains. Very nice people and great service. Purchased front camera trim, reflectors and mirror caps painted to match my individual paint color to perfection.

Got the products in, just need to find time to have the paint corrected before I coat it.
