Here's a couple pics of my Obsidian with Rioja red interior. Just over 4k miles and loving every bit of it so far. Love seeing all the pictures of it lowered - definitely want to do that with mine at some point. I think my first upgrade will be a magnaflow axle-back though.

What are your thoughts about the new F-Sport emblem on the back for 2015 models?

Faced Toronto winters after just 3 weeks off the lot. Also, new tints (35%).

Since it's completely disgusting outside in Buffalo, I haven't had a chance to take any clean photos besides these. Just got her over the weekend!

Permanon

Applied to front bumper and grille.

I've never heard of this product until Bob mentioned it to me and brought over today to try. To apply you simply spay it on after you mix it with water and then blow it off with air blower. Very easy and results look very good. End result is that deep wet looking finish. I like!


Black Label Coating Booster
http://www.autogeek.net/coating-booster-extender.html

Applied to rest of the car.

Bob got some of these for free to provide reviews and he brought it over so I could try on my car. You apply it like spay and wipe wax but it's meant to go over coatings like Opti Coat. It's little more work to get this applied but you get similar results as Permanon. To my eye it didn't seem to have the deep wet look that Permanon gave but you decide. Pictures below.

Now if someone could come out with something to keep salt and snow off my car I'd be set!
I live in a similarly snowy area. What tires are you running for the snow?

Use the 3 bucket system to lower your chance of swirl marks and don't use those automated car washes or the coin operated car washes.
