Looks nice congrats on your GTS, you can opt to wait when the dealer actually has to change out the filters and just have them install the BMC filter which is a rather large filter. You do have to take out the fenders to do the job.
Also you can also clear tint the windshield, makes a big difference in heat and protects your leather dash as well.

Thanks! I actually had the filter installed when I got the front bumper resprayed so it worked out perfectly. I live in Ohio so it doesnít get that hot here in the summer to truly justify tinting the windshield. I would honestly be doing it for the look but Iím content with the 15% on the other 5.

With some DIY work, you can correct paint fairly easy. Learn first, get equipment and polishes, elbow grease for couple days and save easy 2k on the job. After I do all maintenance on mine, I will be taking on the exterior, remove clear bra, show room the paint, then lay down ceramic coat. But thats after maintenance completed.

Much appreciated fellas!!

Proper paint correction does make a world of a difference - especially when 98% of cars on the road wont have corrected paint and yours just stands out and "pops" that much more.

Your Panny is fantastic, great job with the detailing! You definitely have a strong attention to detail. Now excuse me while I go and apply 303 Aerospace Protectant to my grille trim :P

By the way, what did you use to restore it?

Haha - thanks! I use a product called "Solution Finish". A quick google search and you'll find a few places that sell it online. Be sure to strip down your surface area prior to applying so that you get the best bonding possible.
