Turns out I got a check engine light. Didnt think much of it. Took it to my mechanic and had him clear the code (knock sensor). Started the car to leave, and the code came back. So had my mechanic check it out, and he saw my wire exposed and mouse poop next to it. Turns out a mouse decided to chew on my knock sensor wires while my car was at DTM for 2 weeks. GREAT!

Hopefully it isnt too expensive to fix since its just the wires and not the actual sensor.. Or atleast I think so, havent took it all apart to find out yet. Gonna take it back to my mechanic tomorrow and see what the damage is...

Vincent your car looks sick man. Have you installed the throttle controller? If you have how's the response? Sorry to hear about the mouse thing. Hopefully it didn't cause too much damage. Oh by the way there is a chance the deal might go down Saturday morning instead of Monday. I'll let you know and thanks again for the help.

You might want to double check though. Coz on my k-break bumper the chrome trim width is 1/2". Not sure if its the same for the OEM bumper. Just watching out for you before you make the purchase haha

I better check for sure when I get home. I already picked it up, but I haven't opened the packaging yet. Hopefully it is the same.

The car is gorgeous man! It's one of the best LS's I've ever seen. The Flint Mica is so nice. Good luck on the CEL repair.

Had a BBQ at my friend's shop on saturday. Found 2 pics floating around online and decided to share it here.
BTW, anyone know how to remove the amber portion in the headlights? Does it just come off or do I have to replace it with another clear lexan/plastic piece?
