Thought I would share a few shot of my new baby. 04 vert with only 41k miles on it. AE are new installed by me, and I am working through small part repair, touchups, deep cleaning and so many other things. I am also very likely moving to a full blackout setup of kidney grills, side gills and fog light surrounds. (if I can find the last)

Thank you sir! As you should!!! The car is meant to be enjoyed....not looked at! I take mine on several long-distance road trips every summer. The ///M really loves to stretch it's legs so to speak and I love driving it As long as you take good care of your ///M (maintenance and detailing), yours will look as good as mine at 150k.

looks real nice.. hood or fender needs some fitment adjustment on the drivers side tho.

edit. also would be nice if that bumped actually nudged up like the OEM does underneath the headlights to close that gap.

It's Topaz, The color looks completely different depending on the lighting.... Here's and untouched original picture of it.



Looks pretty close to the previous picture but that ones been shopped a bit obviously. IN natural sun light it's a completely different shade blue, it's my second favorite blue behind Interlagos.
