Congrats man! Post some pics when you get a chance! Good thinking on the RX separator. I've yet to order one and I'm still kicking myself for waiting!

You should get a great sound from the catback and CAI!

If the bottom grill was the same as the ls/lt models, I probably wouldn't mind the original one so much. However; I do love the heritage a ton and am glad it was my first mod. I wasn't ready to go with a different after market one.

You're right that the rims aren't horrible. I went to 19's and the treads are incredible. The few days of snow we did have scared me at first based on past experience. It was insane how well the car held up, better than any car I've had yet. The tires made a world of difference, but I'm sure I'll be able to take them off after a business trip in march.

The best part of this paint is the way it sparkles. I love seeing it, especially after a cloudy day.

I see very few camaros still, but that might be due to winter. I still have yet to see another 45th on the road!

I bet you can't wait to put the stock 20s back on!
And it's a refreshing feel to see it in different shades in different weather.

That's true, I should always use him to check the sturdiness of any car on jack stands. He'll be my new unit of measure... of safeness...

Yes it kinda is conflicting, haha
Lets be honest though, you can't get a '68 camaro for $1,500. And that's why I have the mustang(s).

Hahaha good point, but believe me, that mustang isn't going anywhere for a while. It's on a rotisserie right now.

We have a Tri-color setter and he isn't any help either when trying to do ANYTHING but sleep anymore, lol. He's a great dog though!

Haha I think setters are best at sleeping! He looks nice and comfy!
Whenever we're not outside they're on the doormat passed out.

They're great dogs, no doubt about that. We've had 3, two english setters and a Lewellyn which is the one I posted the picture of. He's my bird dog, and a damn good one at that!

Got my 45th A6 2LT the week before Christmas. No mods yet, but heavily considering a few lighting packages (afterburners, side markers, etc.).

Tinting to be done in the next week that I'm looking forward to.

I had my stripe removed as I love the paint job but was not crazy about the red in the stripe. I know this might seem crazy to some of you but I love the car just was not excited about the red in the stripe.

If the sun ever comes out, I plan on washing it and taking it to the beach, but for now, just to get in the thread, here's a hasty camera phone pic.



I plan to get another one like this. This was my favorite angle of my '10 at the beach...

Congrats on the 45th and welcome!
That looks pretty cool without the stripes actually, no hate from me!
Feel free to upload more pics!

Lookin good! Sounds like you'll have a nice photoshoot at the beach.

Don't forget to wash that sand out afterwards.

After seeing more front plate brackets, I cringe even more at my front plate. I really wish this wasn't a front plate state. I still struggle with the value of it, but I am sure there is a good reason. I will just have to move to a state that doesn't require it!
