The black makes the green pop...........
finishing touches are coming along.
Went back to Jamies unit yesterday and offered a hand to speed it up.
Let him do his wrapping magic whilst I removed the old head/tail light tints and the glue, and took apart the front and bumper as he had to have the splitter off of the bumper in order to wrap it.
You would have thought mirrors, front and rear lights and the splitter strip is a quick job, but it actually took us 6 hours (taking apart stuff took less time than his wrapping so poor fudger had me watching him probably making him uncomfortable lol)
Given the time it took, I have a new found respect for how wrappers charge!
He put new light tinted ppf film on the headlights.
New 'light' smoke luxe tint on the rears, despite it looking black in my few attempts of using a DSLR, it is actually lighter than the pictures suggest. Assuming the light gives it an even darker effect on screen.
Wing mirrors also blacked out now with Oracal Black wrap.
And finally the splitter is colour coded, annoyingly I did not sand it before so there are some grains of paint splatter than show through the wrap.. shoulda woulda coulda
I have to say your car looks mint!
Stunning, the black additions make such a difference IMO.
Stunning, the wrap looks very crisp!

Last posey ones for now I swear, just an S5 friend who came to a recent meet also brought his camera and got these corkers
And on a serious note, would anyone be interested in buying my current Suspension set up? H&R super sport springs with Bilstein B8 Shocks(the shortened ones for lowering springs), rides beautifully and no complaints, no scraping in multistories on my S5 bumper with the splitter at the time, or the RS5 bumper without splitter.
I love the height, but eyeing up some coilovers that will marry up with lift cups for the front, will allow me to temporarily lift up the front on button without the need for full air ride and still being traditional coilovers, since getting the RS5 splitter I am worried about the hotel Valet parking staff I have to use when I work at certain locations and they park the car underground at some knotts.
That looks absolutely fantastic
Shouldn't apologise for them shots!
Listed in the classifieds, reluctant sale but am house hunting and want to up the budget a little :'(
Good look with the sale, don't think it will take long.
Sad news @Meemo but needs must.
Someones going to get a very nice car, at a bargain price.
Good luck with the sale @Meemo as well as with the house purchase.

Take the wrap off, it'll open up the market

Thankfully I have a fall back offer which is still generous (one of those raffle companies).
If it was less of a last minute decision (we are viewing this house Saturday that is a bit over budget) I would book it in for the dewrap no doubt, put it closer to standard too and let it go at its own pace.
See how the viewing goes at the weekend and if they take our low ball offer so I don't have to sell her then!
I have updated the pictures finally after a break in the weather, and the price.
Shows the colour off properly now <3
100% after house buying is done with and I get the next S5 or RS5, it is going the exact same colour, I am obsessed.
