Nah my car is black onyx, but two tone with gray on the bottom. In certain light though my car looks that deep blue sapphire. I think i'm just gonna stick with the black... but congrats on your paintjob!

A few updates; wanted to get more done by now but finding the time to work on the car or get work done anymore is rare...
Apexi Neo is installed with plans to create a custom fiberglass mount within the glove for that plus gauges so they can't be seen. Figured this could be installed first seeing as I've found I have less and less time to devote to the car lately and if I want to install my turbo, I should have everything else ready for it so it can be done all at once.
Also, the amp rack has finally been made! Now the amp isn't hanging off the back wall carpet anymore. Simple and respectable imo.
Big thanks to Mkorsu for both of these mods!
Lastly, I finally got around to fixing those damned dash LEDs. Also threw some interesting color ones in random warning lights and other spots for kicks
Took the tint off the front windows because I was constantly getting harassed by cops all around jersey. Reeeeaallly annoying... Do they have nothing better to do? I've been asked if I have any drugs or weapons in my car at least 5 times since January...
BUT I also had the bottom of my car painted black to match the top. I've never been a fan of the touring edition two tone, so I finally got around to having it taken care of. Some people like it, but I'm a fan of a uniform color scheme with subtle accents. So happy about this I can't put it into words...
And my HIDs are FINALLY INSTALLED! Bless you Rising_Sun for that. Haven't gotten the opportunity to take night pics yet, but WOW! Talk about bright. I used to drive with my fogs and lows on all the time to get a passable amount of light output, but now if I have both on its like daytime . 6K in the lows, and 3K in the fogs, ballasts mounted nice and neat.
looks great my friend!!!! Keep up the good work!!! Is it turboed yet!!
hey frank, hows the new car? mercedes right?
i have the kit, just no time to do it and no time to bring it to todd either lol. soon though, very soon.

i got that kit off ebay. one of the first things i did since i didn't like the woodgrain either. I have the marble on the center console and all auxilary areas (around vents, doors, etc.) I don't remember the seller, but I could find him or someone who does the same thing if you'd like. If you want something like this you could ebay 'gs300 dash kit' and find it or you could get your stuff done for more money but definitely nicer at patterntek.com. all about how much you want to spend
