I'm really, really liking that matte look.

Where in the hell did someone find rxII's in not 16 inch? Between these and VZ's, I couldn't want a set of rims in 17 or 18 more.

Doesn't help us much. We can't run hellafresh offsets after an adapter to make them work. Well, that's actually debatable (RS's on the eastcoast aero).

Nothing a little fender pulling can't cure. If there's a will, there's a way.

Very cool, and I'm very jealous...

Where are you getting it done at?  Or are you DIY'ing?  I've been all over their website, and I can't seem to find Frostbite up for sale on there.

Getting it installed.  DIYing would require assistance from a 2nd person, unfortunately Im the only one I know who coudl help me.  Omega Tintwerks, Pleasenton CA.  I got my 92x tint done there, Vince is a good guy.  You have to contact Aerotech for pricing and sales since they usualyl sell direct to installers.

I think a 9-2x in matte black or matte gun metal would look absolutely awesome.  I'd be more than happy to do it, but don't want to put up the cash.

Matte GunMetal gray, that would be my perfect color.   driving

I wonder what an adequate paint job would cost like that on our 92x (?). Anyone knowledgable about car painting? Member "StiNG" might know.  His STi's paint job is really beautiful...
I would rather spend the cash to actually paint and coat the body of the car instead of investing in expensive films like these.  up

A good paintjob will be in the neighborhood of $5K or so. But don't quote me on that figure.

PM me if you want a good shop for a quote. I can only think of one place (that is relatively cheap but quality work).  big_smile

Re: Vinyl wrapping the 9-2x, what do we think?

as a long time "hook'em horns fan", it pains me grately (greatly, grilley, grilly?) to state that aggie is a term used for male students at Texas A&M.  we do, however, know that aggie is a male, otherwise she would be maggie113. 'nuff said.
