You know it! Just gotta decide if I should paint the vents myself and save $100 or just buy them already painted.

I agree! Not gonna lie it takes some use to driving it haha. Been use to seeing the black rally stripes on the hood scoop part and now its weird not being there. My registration and inspection sticker kinda block the vinyl on the driver side and I can't see the passenger side but it def looks awesome!

Thanks! I know they come in gunmetal,matte black and bronze, I think I saw someone had a set of chrome ones but I am not sure. I got mine from discounttiredirect and I think they were about $1500 but I got tires with mine too along with some other things like TPMS, the mounting of the tires and a warranty on the tires.

I know they come in a machined face with black barrels which looks killer. I recently went to a local tire shop that does great work and they quoted me 1500 for the 4 Rims (same as stock size), the 4TPMS, 20 Lugs, road hazard on the tires, and the mounting and balancing. They would be using my stock tires which is perfectly fine since mine only have 5400 miles on them. If I had the money I would have done it right then as that was a pretty good deal. But I actually think I might just powder coat mine and call it a day. I love the TSWs but I like the thick 5 spokes more.

But Kj do you plan on doing the rear Bowtie the same as the front one?

Haha yea, it is sitting on my kitchen table (with a bunch of other mods haha). Just waiting for some nice weather so I can remove the current one and 3M the one I painted.

You guys are the ones putting it all together to reach the end result! I can design stripe kits all day long, but if there were no creative people like yourself with an end idea of what they want their car to look like it wouldn't matter. It's the overall result that ends up being stunning.
Well done my friend!

Very true and thank you.


I posted a pic of my car with the new stripes on Apex Motorsport's FB page just cause. I was not expecting them to share it! So that is pretty cool haha!

I have been getting a ton of compliments since installing the stripes its awesome!

Update:
This has been a mod I have been wanting to do for awhile (ever since I effed up painting my auto bezel). I managed to get another off a member on here a long time ago and it has just been sitting on my kitchen table forever! Well I finally sent it to Gary Custom's to have him paint it and it came out amazing!





I went with Gary because I think he is the only one who can paint the PRNDM letters? I am def planning on getting more interior pieces painted from him but I gotta slow down the mods haha. Still have a bunch of stuff to install.


This weekend I'll be going to my first car show of the season and they are going to have a dyno there. Hopefully I'll be able to get some pulls done and have some rwhp numbers . Can't wait!
