Not a fan of white cars at all; that's one white car I would drive! Great mods

looks great! Normally body kits look tacked on to me but this actually look tasteful.

Where did you get the Carbon fiber gear shift trims? I know IND sells the paddles but hadn't seen the gear shift. How did the reflectors match? I've heard complaints they don't always match well from IND, I may have mine sprayed locally. roof wrap is my favorite part, love what it did to the rear spoiler, ties it in nice.

I had wanted to see those mirrors installed so thanks for posting! Looks nice, enjoy!

I like most of it. The mirrors don’t do it for me. Seem out of place on a bigger suv. Nice job though.

Very tastefully done! I've been curious about pulling the trigger on going with the black gloss wrap on my white roof as well and no I hv the visual.

Been thinking about tinting the rear taillights also. Looks great. Did he spray the tint on the tail lights or wrap?

All fairly saddle mods except the body kit but all together it all ties in perfectly!! You did well

Thank you. I thought the body kit flowed pretty well myself. I do love the roof wrap too though. Really gives it a nice flow. Mirrors are probably my favorite part.

I got most everything from IND, but the carbon fiber gear shift trims came directly from Autotecknic.

Front reflectors seem to match better than the rear. Both are fine, but the rear reflectors do seem a bit more yellow than the car now that you mention it.

Haha. To each his own I guess as the mirrors are probably one of my favorite parts.

Thank you appreciate the feedback. I was going for the OEM plus look. Gloss black roof looks great and adds a layer of aggressiveness. I'd go for it.

My headlights, fogs, and taillights were all wrapped. Came out great. Nice thing with wrap is you can always remove if you'd like.

Would this diffuser work if you have a tow hitch?

Yes, sir. I do have a tow hitch. Just nicely covered up now. I never wanted the tow hitch anyhow since we never use it but it was on the car I was buying so had to take it. Now I don't have to look at it any more.

Very nice, we just got the exact same build for my wife. At least exterior wise and I was thinking of doing the roof like that.

Congrats. Your wife will be happy. Do the roof you'll love it. Not that expensive to do either.
