    i bought from Will, i'll be up there on friday, gonna get a shock sensor on the car, and do you think the shop guys might try to patch up the scratch? Probably not, but i got a tube of touch up paint, im just afraid to use it.

    Looks good. I'm trying to decide whether or not to tint mine. I have the SMG. You have crystal right? What percentage did you go with?

    ill post a close up of the seats tomorrow, they arent emroidered. They are actually just high quality vinyls. Were pretty cheap too, i thought they would look kinda tacky but they came out really good. Its the first thing everyone notices when they see my car.

    As for the % of the tint, i went with 20% in the backseats and back windshield for the dark look(plus black leather + alot of sun = sweaty balls), but 35% in the front to keep it legal. It came out real good. With SGM, you might want to just do 35 all the way around since its a darker color, to each his own though.

    What do you guys think about the front windshield strip? Sometimes i like it, and other times i think its too big.

    size wise the strip looks good, and about the same as I have. the sunstrip is illegal in md no matter what size/percentage, so I still think you should have gone with 5 for the sunstrip.

    I really like the seats. Do you have a link or anything. I'm a little nervous messing with the leather, but yours look really nice. Did you tint out the sunroof also?

    i dunno about going to the track on friday, but if youre around the dealership ill be sure to say whats up. Chances are ill be there for most of the afternoon, especially if i try to get those scratches fixed.

    And as for the seats, like i said they are just high quality vinyls. They stick on and if you wanted to you could pry them off with leving nothing behind but a light layer of glue, would come right off. Way cheaper than getting them embroidered too.
    And no, i didnt tint the sunroof.

    i regretted my decision to do the same in my last car. but then one day, i realized i wanted to vent the car,but didn't want to heat up from the sun. if i ever have a sunroof again it will get tinted with whatever % i put on my windows.

    Chances are... your car is gonna get more scratches like that as it ages. So, getting it fixed might be a waste of money at this point in time. That is, considering how low the lip is to the ground. Dips in the road, curbs, etc etc.

    Just a thought.
