The matte orange goes nicely with the gloss roof and tinted lights. Personally, I would have done a gloss black powder coat for the wheels but other then that, this car is perfect imo! Great job, it takes cajones to go with a color like that!
      Thank you very for the kind words! I'm very happy with (almost) final product, but it gives me even bigger smile when fellow car enthusiasts notice and apreciate others "creation"! Most of us put alot of time, money, and effort into this, and fellow members input , be it positive or negative, is very important IMO!

      Regarding the wheels, this is just winter mode. Will be getting 18" black wheels - most likely gloss!

      Thats the cleanest wrap I have ever seen !!!

      I seen some "pro" wraps before but that one is cleanest of the clean !!!
      It just makes the other so called Industrial and Pro Wrappers look like amateurs !!!

      No, I did not wrap the inside. I don't really look in there too much!

      Curious to know how the ride is compared to stock. That is about the right amount of drop (for me) for a daily driver

      For a fair comparison, I’ll have to put the front ones. I also did not want to go too low as it is my DD, and the roads here are not the best(
      I’ll let you know when I put about 100km on them.

      Haha, thanks! Ye, lots of attention (surprisingly not from cops). Most people think it’s paint, and when I say its “sticker”, they go like “Whaaaat?”

      Thanks!

      Planning on doing Unitronic flash, the price is decent, plus there is a VW/AUDI dealer close to me and they are authorized by Unitronic

      And still debating on the exhaust.

      I've heard you won't gain anything with the exhaust unless you bypass the emissions bits.

      However, I really want to know how you like the unitronic flash!
