Hey Kenny, I love the silver window line and mirrors, but I'm not too sure on the stickers tbh.

But as long as you like them it's all good! :)
It really stands out at night... and keeps the road hoggers away from the right lane.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

It's a controversial look, judging from what you guys have responded with!

I was trying to emulate the mustang from the latest series of Knight Rider.

If you check my earlier posts, I also have the red strobes behind the front grille to complement the look.

I like the window line and I also notice the front skirt seems to be painted silver.

The bonnet and roof lines are but my personal taste but looks well done and adds some charectar to your car.
I didn't want to follow the crowd with the contrast line so I decided to accent other areas of the car. The silver on the front skirt is actually stuck on. Was trying to emulate the bumper of the RS5.

Are the mirrors wrapped or painted?
they were the only parts painted. due to the curvature of the surface, it would have required multiple applications of stickers to prevent creasing. I decided to go with a respray instead.

What's a Chav? o_O

Am not Brit so I wouldn't get it. :)

I don't see how bad it is considering tuners like senner and mtm are churning out a1s with similar vinyl applications...

Maybe if I started sticking gold strips and anime characters, it might start to look weird...

Ah. thanks for the info!

Here in Singapore, you can't even buy car parts to put together. it's illegal! cars are generally luxury items here... so making them stand out with vinyls is pretty much considered the norm for the younger generation.

one country's meat is another country's poison i reckon!

I managed to wrap mine but I fall down on the little gap on the top! Need to get the covers off. Do you know how they come off?
You're gonna have to tilt the mirrors all the way to get to some catch hidden at the back which would allow the covers to come off. not exactly sure how to do it cos the spraypaint guy did it for me. :)
