Thanks - I appreciate your kind words.

Since taking these photos, I have applied a coat of Supagard, which has given a really deep, mirror like, finish. Everyone who has seen the car so far remarks that it looks like a brand new vehicle.

I also had the rear and side screens down for the photos. When they are up, the rear side and rear windows look as dark as the paintwork -giving the car a very distinctive appearance (bear in mind that the levels of tint that some of you guys in the US apply to your cars are highly illegal over here on safety grounds).

Congrats on the new purchase! Your 7 looks clean. I'm not crazy about the tinted taillights and really can't see your rims. I like the interior of your 6. Can you post some more pics of the 6 and include interior shots as well?

Great looking ride. As for the headlights there's a few things you can do for that because mine looked like that at one point. First I started by cleaning both lenses. Following that I picked up a German headlamp cleaning kit which contained a cleaning compound combined with 2000grit sand paper. After you sand both lenses you will notice a huge difference! All that's left to do is spray the lens protectant that is included in the kit. If your still not satisfied like me I went over it with a scratch doctor compound and used a buffer to work that in. GL

Im actually in the Netherlands at the moment as well. Just here for christmas and new years because theres nothing like the fireworks I saw here 4 years ago haha but when I get back to the 7 I plan on doing some bulbs and ballists for my fog lights to match my new angel eyes I put in hours before I left for here. Also I want to paint my calipers so everything is looking nice for my new shoes this summer. How do you manage in these small streets with a 7? I would be paranoid!

What brand are your angel eyes? What size amp do you have to power the sub? Did you change out the speakers as well?
