Thanks, man. I bought the car last august and the PO sold the M-pars separately, so I got the winter set.

Still deciding on which wheels I want to go with for my summer set.

Yep. In a parking lot too. I'm out $1150 cause they have to respray the whole rear quarter panel. It's that expensive because I have a dent and rust spot on the other side of the car and they threw that in at base cost (just labor and materials).
