That looks awesome man. Can you get me a job at wherever you work? I need to make money like you!

Did you do the CF interior pieces install yourself or did you take it somewhere?

Thanks man! I did all the work myself. No need to pay a stealership to do something that is not very hard to do. Its more rewarding that way too.
Nice! Dude, can you give me a walkthrough on how to take all of those pieces off? I want wrap my pieces with vinyl, but I'm deathly afraid I'm going to break the clips that hold them in place or scratch/dent the plastic parts.

Very nice!. What was the motivation to go with the 300HP engine instead of 400HP? Are you planning to make up the difference with rebuilt turbos and a tune?

Don't be scared to pull. Start with the side piece by your legs. Everything pops out nicely. Just go slow and see the clips come out.

Couple reasons - Dealer didn't have any in stock and I really didn't want to pay more than I am know for it. Plus the 300hp is more than fast enough for me. It's not like I'm racing it and when the little ricers pull up to me at a light, I just let them take off with their Juan Valdez fart can exhausts. However I did have a nice run with a Tesla the other day. Couldn't help myself >:)

I've taken off the side pieces by the center console before to install a new cupholder, and yea it just takes patience and luck, but how about the door handle covers? Do I have to get under there with a screwdriver or something? I'd like to do the window control covers too, but I see you didn't do those either...

Ah.. you will need to take the door panels off. There are about 10 screws that hold on the inserts. There are three bolts on the door panel. one behind the door release then one at the top and bottom of the door pull. need to take the cover off on both to access the bolts.

You are my hero. I'll be doing (almost) the same thing to my liquid platinum version once it arrives next week! Did you replace the pedals with the sport aluminum ones yet?

Replace pedals? No, I'm good on that one. Looking into adding paddle shifters tho

How did you find the door panels build quality to be? Do you think that someone can easily damage part of it during removal? I noticed that sometimes door panels are very fragile.

That is a beauty!

How much did it cost to get all the interior carbon fiber pieces?

Also a question about your wheel setup - on the front you have 245's, any reason you didn't go with a 255? Was fitment an issue? I'm about to get some custom wheels myself and was thinking about doing 255 all around (I have an AWD).

Oh **** you for having the big brake kit and rims on before me! Dude your car is SICK!!!! Time to get the credit card out and do some shopping lol.

Seriously, great call on going with the 3.0 premium. We get much better gains from add one and saved $20k on the car price. Honestly, don't understand why people overpaid for the red sport. Same engine and all the mods I would do to the red sport I did to mine and am nipping at the heels of 400hp... saved money on the sales price and used it for the mods to set the car up how I want it.

Now a tune and all u red sport owners can suck my dust!

Thanks! I do want to get it tuned as there is a place in South Florida doing them and getting close to the 400hp mark, but I'm concerned on the warranty. My luck, I'll do it, and something will fail ;)

Naw.... keep in mind same motor as the red sport... I probably won't tune, why tune when downpipes, a cat back and intake gets you close to 400 hp anyway... all I know is I have had way more expensive cars and several just north of the 3.0 premium price tag and after 3 months I still walk backwards into the grocery store staring at my car :) really nice machine we have. Period.
