Yes I do park farther back from the cinder blocks even though I have scrapped it just a little on accident.

Also I find that when I go up the driveway I have to go to little bit slower because I'm worried I'm going to scrape that front

Thank you for the compliments on my ride, I do love/hate the black combo with my red interior. I say hate because I spent a lot of time cleaning it properly so I don't swirl it

My first week, right after I got the tint done, can't believe i've had her 3 months already. Waiting for tax season to add on some CV3s.

Yes, that crunch is the worst sound. I always back into parking spaces for that reason, very easy to do with the back up camera.

My car still gets double and triple looks when i drive by. Its that aggressive front, there really is nothing else like it on the road right now.

How is your tint doing? Were you happy with Sunshield's work?? My windows look pretty dark there but you can see enough of the red interior in my opinion.
Your car looks amazing. So shiny. Haha that's how I felt when I removed my paper plates. It was a sad day when I installed my license plate. I'm very happy with my tint. Thanks again for recommending Sunshield! Hamid really knows his stuff.

Thank you for the compliment on my car. I know its really shiny from the detailer and the way I wash it. I use Meguiar's Professional detail line of Rinse and Wax waterless car wash. it works great and it leaves my car silky smooth. It is a great product and no one on this forum seems to know about it. My detailer worked with Meguiar's to test it out and develop it and he used it on my car the first time he detailed my car and then he taught me how to wash it that way. So I have been using it and its a great product. Easy to mix at 4:1 ratio, and easy to apply. And it really keeps my car shiny.

So glad you like Hamid. He is terrific and I recently recommended him to another member on this forum, DreLo. Cant go wrong with Sunshield Glass Tinting. Its hard no a days to find a business that stands behind their work like Hamid does.

Happy New Year to you!!!!!

Yup, I go slow and turn in at an angle when going up a driveway.

I think the black is so worth it though. The shine on your car is seriously amazing.

I think based on our conversations you are in the San Fernando Valley or Los Angeles area. If you ever want the name or number of my mobile detailer I can give it to you. Until then, just check our his Facebook page, its Superior Shine. This guy and his work is amazing and he helps me keep this shine. There is nothing worse in my opinion than a black car that looks awful because its not well maintained by the owner. Superior Shine is the best.
