      Hey Jay!

      I undid the [img] crap on your photos because Vortex resized them and they looked like crap. People can click on the links now and view them full res.

      edit: Well they look better on the 1st and 3rd ones. The 2nd one is the same size.

      Dont be alarmed at the fact it was purchased this way. You know why it was painted? The p.o. mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. See there is a reason behind it. The headlights no longer exist on this car. There are no more stickers on the hood or windshield.

      Funny thing is, I am going to be raising it up and running stock sized 225/40 tires. Screw low and slow. I actually drive my cars.

      Not to get off topic but was the shop able to produce a good match? I'm considering respraying my front end but I'm worried it might be noticable.

      What's Al doing the tuning on? I wish my rifle would be done by then, I'd love to bring it out for you guys. Porsche brakes huh? I have some myself. My .02 is to be sure of your offsets on the wheels. My Raderwerks cleared the GLI brakes no problem and so did my RC's, but the Porsche calipers made it so I needed a minimum of a 5mm spacer on the both sets of wheels. Final et on the Raderwerks was 18x8.5 et21 and the RC's became 18x7.5 et29. Just an FYI.

      More car pron. Cell phone camera FTW!!

      I actually did it myself with spray touch-up paint. Perfect match. I taped off parts of the bumper but it looks fine. Its not quite as shiny, but the bump strip is a bit matte as well and the lower lip was painted with bedliner by the PO () so it doesn't stand out. The can of clear got me 2 or 3 coats only...a few more would have made me happy but I don't have crazy grey spots anymore, which is what I wanted.

      Yeah the only way to find out is to test fit Can't space the front at all or I won't be able to stuff the front wheel. I'm 8.5 and ET 35 if I remember right. There seems to be plenty of room but we shall find out

      You should be able to tuck the sh^t out of a wheel with 8.5 et30. My Raderwerks are still capable of going into the wheel well at et21. No fender liner though. Speaking of fender liner, what are you using to protect your fenders from the possiblity of a rock being tossed up there?

      I've got nothing protecting As of now you can barely put a piece of paper between tire and bag and tire and fender. I guess my measurements were right Oh and I think it might be Todds car Al is tuning. Can't seem to get the thing to stop trimming. I had the same issue with Eurodyne that's why I switched to Untitronic

      I got spray touch-up from the dealer. They may know of a good place to get it in larger quantities. Otherwise, paintscratch maybe?

      I had mine 3/4 repainted. The body shop used the paint code on the door and it didn't match. The pearl was too purple. He had to have someone scan the paint to fully match. I believe he used PPG and it was like $95 a quart
