Ambers look fine IMO. But yeah, DTM tips are ugly.

I think that's the first time I've seen a pic of your car (not in pieces)! Looks absolutely amazing, you can truly see the metallic in the BG. Never seen that side of it before. Jelly!

Thanks, BG is a hard color to photograph correctly, especially at night, it usually turns up more blue then green.

More shots of the car here:

That looks like vandalism. Someone jealous of your car?
