Wow, very nice! I'm not even a fan of the newer models, for the most part--I think they're beginning to look very generic, but you have turned that car into a VERY smooth-looking ride.

Mike

Do the the exhaust tips rattle against the rear bumper when you drive? It looks like they touch...

Did the exhaust make any difference performance or sound wise? Here in Pa. it is a big no-no to tint the front windows. I tinted the rear on my TE because most police won't know if it's factory or not.

Shanta, I'm no Kameraguy, but I'll take pics of yo ride

The exhaust doesn't touch the bumper, there's not rattling at all. I even had someone drive my car and I followed to see and hear, nothing

IT does sound throatier. at 2000 rpm is when you hear it well. On the freeway at 70+ no sound, which is good

Performance? I like to think there's an increase, but I don't think there is

50% on the front, what do you have on the back? Also, did you do it or have it done (and who did it?)

70% is supposed to be the only legal film in cali. It's basically neutral. I Went w/ 50. I have 18% in the rear. All 3M film. (rear has metal in it, fronts do not). The local 3M tinter did it.

I didn't think that car could get more kewl than it already was.
-Apparently i was wrong!

I can't believe that my dull-looking one is supposed to be the same car.

Same here! Nice job! Might give me some inspiration to dress up my beast!

Unfortunately, it's down for the count right now with numerous annoying ailments...

Keep up the good work!
