23ís are definitely still the plan. I start a new job in February so hoping to order them if all goes according to plan. The fully forged Vossens I want arenít cheap 🤦🏻*♂️ Iím still unclear if I can run the same rear tire setup as the Urus that Iíve been wanting to.

I was talking with AG wheels. They just did 24s on a Urus as well as 23s. I believe they were like 12" or 12.5" wide in the rear. Only thing I was worried about was the Q8 having enough power to turn those without bogging the car down.

Vossen told me they have 23 and 24Ē options for the Urus as well as Q8. But one of my buddies did Vossens on his S6 and they rubbed, so Iím hoping not to be the guinea pig and get the width and offset wrong on mine as i want to go wide outback. Yeah, the relative lack of power is a bummer coming from some
600/700 hp SUVís but the SQ8 and RSQ8 should hopefully take care of that problem.

What percent tint did you go with? Did you tint the rear windows with the same percentage?

Looks great! Should be the next Bat-Mobile lol

How did you tint the front reflector? Any insight on that would be helpful. Thanks

First, I disabled the light in the reflector with OBDELEVEN. That made a huge difference. Then had my wrap guy literally just tint over the light itself. I wish I was brave enough to have someone open my headlight and remove the orange reflector, but I donít want any warrant issues in a one month old vehicle 🤣 Not yet at least...

I've always hated the amber lighting on all my cars, but have always been too lazy to do anything about it lol. I think this time I'll actually go for it, thanks for your help and GL with your future mods, it's looking great!
