I love these tasteful mods. Shout out to another Canadian GS!

How hard was it to install the fog lights? Thinking of doing that myself, but it might be above my DIY skill level.

Installed a carbon fiber vinyl to the front bumper. I posted this in another thread, but just wanted to share

Wash, wax and leather treatment. What a difference!

Thanks! Did a lot of research on installing before trying but one thing I didn't realize until attempting was I needed to extend the wiring harness. I decided to let my mechanic do it as I needed to install my front lip anyway.

Was it a pre-cut? How difficult is it? I am tempting to do it myself. My local shop quoting $200 for this mod.

I think they do sell precut black vinyl not sure about the carbon. If you are worried about cutting you can use knifeless tape and lay down the vinyl and when you lift up the tape it cuts it with a nice edge without using a razor. If you do carbon avoid the 5d carbon. It looks nice but its incredibly hard to work with, I have a huge roll and can barely use it for anything, its very rigid and doesn't have much flexibility. Tried to wrap my mirrors with it but eventually gave up.

Everybody has their favorite, but I've been using Lexol cleaner and Lexol conditioner for years. Available everywhere.

Dipped my fog bezels too to go with my grill. Used the same pearl but it was looking too pink because of the angle and how low the fogs sit. I added another shifting pearl on top which is blue/teal to the invictus and it looks really good in person. The grill looks crazy in the sun, really digging the look of it. Will probably do my calipers something next.


Will probably add some tint to the fogs as well, not sure if I want yellow or black.
