Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

I think I already mentioned - you have my exact interior. Mocha, luxury pkg, fineline cove matte, and leather dash. Seeing your photos makes me even more excited to pick mine up!

Would have picked up the diffuser but had to come to work so I'll be installing the exhaust Saturday.

What are the front fender replacement and body-colored camera? I couldn't figure out where they went.

Nice pictures!

I haven't put them on yet but they're for the reflector near the front wheels and then the center space between the grills.

If you go to the flickr link each photo has details about what equipment I used for that specific photo but overall I used a Nikon D700, Nikon 200-500, 85 and then a 17-35 for the wide angle shots.

I'm loving your ideas, can't wait to see the installed exhaust and diffuser. I was about to pull the trigger on the Dinan exhaust but most reviews say it's barely a change from stock. Are you installing your own exhaust or having someone else do it? Just curious to see where you would take it. I don't trust ordinary muffler shops to work on my car.

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.
