Default finally - Brilliant black SQ5

finally back from Korea. Picked up my car a week ago, about two hours after getting off the plane. tinted the front, to include the windshield, and sunroof, blacked out the window trim, had the front wrapped (xpel), and gtechniq detailing. I went back and forth on the color but am glad i stuck with brilliant black. I now understand all of the talk about the Alu Kruez stabilizer as well.

Very, very sharp...but don't try to drive around with the windscreen tint in many places around North America and in some places, with the front side windows tinted

Did you get the Alu Kruez? What, specifically, did you notice about the difference in the SQ? I've been noticing that there is some very subtle noise and feel in the front end and was wondering if that is what I need.

Beautiful SQ, BTW. What other mods are you planning? RS grill?

thanks. I have only driven the stock SQ5 but based on talk in the forum the AK tightens things up a bit and I can see, especially in anything but dynamic mode, where id like a little more feedback.

I am tentative about any mods that could have a dealership making a fuss about warranty issues. Over the next 4-5 months I will be between NY, GA, and LA. I think for now I am going to simply drive and enjoy the car. Once I get settled in Louisiana and have some miles on the car I think id go for more performance oriented (suspension) mods.
