This looks perfect! Love the white 1le's and the tires come right out to the fender. The grill basically completes the ultra-slick look of this thing. We need about 100 more pictures of your car, please.

Agreed... I really don't get it but I guess that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.... More broadly, I don't get the de-badging in general that people do to take off the "SS" and "CAMARO" emblems either, but different strokes for different folks I guess...

Lol. The wrap is what sets this car apart. And also the meaning behind the hood wrap is beneficial for those tracking it(reduces glare). To each his own though!

If you are not tracking it you really do not need the wrap. The idea of it is to keep glare off the hood if you are tracking the car.

I have been tracking/racing for 15 years and have never had an issue with glare from the hood of a car while on the track or the street for that matter. (IP glare and sun in the eyes are different)

The benefit for me on the track (and street)will be to avoid rock chips. Race tires pick up every tiny rock and throw it at the car directly behind you. NOW, I am never behind other cars on a track but it is like getting BBs shot at your car at 100MPH+ if the car in front goes offline or off track for a moment.

For me, I have used vinyl for the same purpose across the top of the windshield, to reduce the area that could be chipped/cracked and that piece keeps the sun out of my eyes.

What sets the car apart are the wheelsand all the other parts it comes with for 3500 dollars. With or without a wrap its still a 1le.
