Graphite Shadow / Monaco Red Q60 RS AWD

I finally got my custom-order graphite shadow / monaco red Q60 RS AWD this week. It was ordered in early Sep, so it took about three months. It has the premium and driver assistance packages, illuminated kick plates, and external ground lighting. I'm very pleased with the color scheme and overall quality. So far I added window tint and a clear front bumper application.

How does the ground lighting work exactly? On all the time at night, or only when parked, etc?

It's tied to the overhead lights and door handle lights. They all come on and fade out at the same time. So it's when you unlock the car or open the door. It's a nice effect. I'll take a picture at night and post it.

Love it! That color combo is perfect IMO.

I so can't wait for mine to arrive....this wait is killing me. It's not even been a full month yet. If the timelines hold, mine will probably come in the end of February or early March.

Looks awesome! I plan to get graphite shadow when I order. What percent tint is that?

30% light transmittance all around. We're lucky in Texas because the tint can be pretty dark. Everything behind the front row can be as dark as you want. I didn't go darker for the other windows because I wanted it to be uniform.

Edit: Oops, InfinitiFreak, I just noticed you're also in Texas, so no need for the tint lesson.

Lol, I actually appreciate the lesson as I have only been in Texas a year or so and this will be the first car I buy and tint here.

I will probably go with 30% also as I will get the graphite shadow exterior but graphite interior.
