Picked up this beauty on Friday. Yes, the infotainment might be a bit confusing at first but this car is such an improvement on the 7&7.5.
On Saturday I took it to the one and only Badgeskins to perfect this car. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ve had Badgeskins on my previous Rs and they have a great product.
Monday is tint and a 1/4 hood/fender ppf and Tuesday hopefully my winters come in.

Am I seeing correctly—did you black out the blue strip in the grill and headlights?

Looks like it. I will absolutely be doing this. I know blue is the R color or whatever, but my biggest complaint about this car is the blue everywhere. Unfortunately - theres not a ton that can be done to the inside blue-ness.

It looks like, to my eyes, the left and right headlights are done differently. Am I crazy?

Driver's side definitely looks like a thicker band of black than passenger side. Maybe it's just an illusion.

Once you get used to it and learn how many different settings and options are available I think the car's OS will be very easy to understand. Everyone is used to main line platforms and learning a new one is different.

I think this will be my setup also for the winter.
What offset do the wheels have?
245 is not too much for the winter?
But they look great, do they sit flush?

Great color ;)
What did you put on the small side orange signs? Badgeskin?

His whole car is badge skinned. I'm jealous, still waiting for the rear emblem overlay to hit their website.
