Ok well....what a weekend....so I'll start with Friday afternoon. Went to a toothless carwash right by m house that Ive used at least a dozen times or more. Well apparently the plastic roller where you drive your wheels through had one of the pieces dropped down on one side and a metal bar poking through on the other. Well with my luck I caught that metal piece on my front drivers side rim and now have a very large chunk missing out of the rim.

Once I realized what happened, the owner just happened to be onsite. I approached him and advised what happened and walked him over to the wash to point out the exposed metal. His repose was "sorry, its use at your risk" and then pointed to the sign that indicated this. I tried reasoning with him explaining that the metal is exposed and that part was his fault. He then proceeded to walk away in which I then lost my **** and had quite a few choice words for him.

On to the damage.





At this point, i'm screwed. The gunmetal color that Velgan has is unique and imo has a slight bluish hint to it. Nothing that I can color match. I may just repair the gouge and do a dip until I powdercoat my wheels.

Cost of one new wheel for those Velgens... $300?

Might be worth it for peace of mind. The alternative is reliving all that anger every time you look at a mismatched repair.

As for the rest of my weekend, it was productive. Saturday I was able to install the Autokits XS rear diffuser along with the Successful Automotive spats.

Install was very straight forward and i'm in LOVE with the look!

here is the before:





here is the after with just the diffuser first. Only took 1 pic as I was stuck in go mode




On to the spats

This ones my fav pic from the handful I took.










After seeing the pics more and more I now have 2 things on my list....I want to debadge everything and leave just the Fugi and now I want to get a 3rd braken light for the bottom portion of the diffuser.

CF diffuser looks fantastic against your (highly polished) black sedan. Really good. God damn, you keep a clean car. Spats, though... Those look over the top and awkward, IMO.

Is that a cut-out for a lower light? Yeah, that would be on my list too, if I were you.

If you debadge down to the Fuji only, lower it an inch for equal distance between the lower line on the spoiler and the crease line in the trunk.

Ended up going to the Rays game sat afternoon and couldn't finish the install of the front splitter so I ended doing so yesterday.

1st let me say that the install of it is incredibly difficult if trying to do so solo!!! I tried for a good hour and finally went over to the shop to have a friend lend a hand. Made things a breeze after that.

The splitter changed the front end and gives it a seriously aggressive look....even more so than just the front sport lip. I am a VERY happy consumer with the design, look, and fitment of the Successful Automotive splitter.





Profile shot showing the the front and back respectively




My side splitters should be done today and will either be installed today or tomorrow to complete the look

John may not be a bad idea, I'll send them an email today to see what the pricing would be. Although I have repaired a few wheels in the past and your only talking about $70 in supplies and thats including the dip.

My car inst always that clean as the pollen here attacks like crazy for the entire month or March and a bit into April. I have been considering paint correction and then ceramic coating and I hope to have this done by this summer.

I was skeptical about the spats at first as I've never been a fan of them, but on the car with the front splitters and hopefully the sides, it will complete the look and more importantly maintain that line from front through the back symmetrical.

Waiting for better photography, however... first impressions are really good. And those rear pieces no longer look out of place.

Looks great! Maybe I'm crazy, but I kind of prefer the look without the spoiler. But nevertheless very sexy car.

DFS, looking so good, I'd say you're now complete!

Have you ever thought about wrapping the window trim in the same shade as your wheels? Think that would be a nice $25 experiment

Thank you and I could never have the car long without some type of rear spoiler to cover up that chrome
