Default Bought the car on 10/4 so it's time to make some changes

I got a 2012 A6 2.0T Premium, all stock

So the first thing I needed to do was to get tints (35% all around), plus remove the chrome that was around the grille and the windows.

Then smoked the taillights and removed the "A6" and the "2.0T" off the trunk

And lastly. took off the license plate altogether, I think the car looks cleaner this way

Now, my next step is putting on black rims and changing my headlights to the ones with the DRL strip. I'm hoping that'll take place next week. The rims are 19 inch Sevas S-stars and I had them on my A4, I'd like to use them on the A6 if they'd work...

Next week will be a new week, but for the first 4 days, I'm OK with the makeover so far...

Looks good. What did you do to achieve the black optics look? That is my next "mod" when I get around to it.

It's a car wrap, I did it at this place in L.A. called Sticker City (www.stickercity.com) if you wanna see the work they do. I have a friend who wrappd his car up entirely 6 years ago and it still hasnt come off one bit, thats why i feel comfortable with their work. If at any time I want the chrome back, I can peel off the black stickers, but I seriously doubt that i will...

Added the headrest DVD players so my daughter can watch her cartoons on roadtrips and stop nagging me. Plus I lowered the ride by 1.4" with the H&R springs. I'd like to lower it more to be honest, but I'll take the 1.4" for now as opposed to spending more dough on coilovers

What a beauty! Looking slick

Good thinking with wrapping the chrome in black. Sounds like that company does good work!

In the last photo the front license plate is back on the car. Did you have a change in your view of what's cleaner looking or did the police bust you?

Looks sharp!!! Congrats.
Where did you buy the DVD player setup and how much did it cost, if you don't mind me asking?
