    Congrats Jaime!! It's a beauty. Such an awesome Christmas present for yourself. If we can get a decent weekend day and the roads are in decent shape I wouldn't mind taking a ride down to drool all over....I mean....take a look at it.

    Every picture just makes me more jealous and gives me more ideas to empty my wallet. I'm already looking at getting that spoiler, and I'm really liking that beefy closed box CAI. Congrats on the awesome ride, and thanks for sharing these pictures!

    I plan to, when I get some free time that is, take down the front belly cover and rear diffuser cover to get more pictures. I will be uploading them into this thread once I do.

    I must say, I am surprisingly pleased with the quality of the optional cover I ordered with the car. It is much better than the covercraft I have for my last car. Gotta love the cobra as well :rockon:

    (The bright spots on the hood are reflections from the windows above my garage doors)

    I drove my car 22.6 miles (to be exact) today to drop it off to have the paint protection film & ceramic coat applied. I am simply floored with how great this car is. I still have the smile on my face as I type this post. I have never been in a car that feels this good, this was the best decision I have ever made, vehicle wise.I now have a whopping 37.1 on the odometer lol.

    They will be doing some slight paint correction to remove a handful of surface scratches, then applying Xpel, then ceramic. I went with one pice film, over the stripes. When I got it to the shop, it took the owner 2.5 seconds to find 3 dents in on the right front fender :curse:. Not a huge deal, if the dealership won't cover the cost of a paint-less dent removal (I think they will), I will pay the $75 to get them removed.


    I simply can NOT wait to get this back to see how it looks.

    Sir, may I ask where you are getting the work done? Also, did you get rid of your old car cover?
