Looks great, what did the Opticoat cost? Did you consider anything else such as Wolfs Hardbody.
Are you happy with the finish - it looks like a mirror from here.

Also with regards the tint you did the front windows the same as the back - any reason for that?
Regards...

Opticoat pricey $1400 for 3 coats - he spent from 6.30am to 4.30pm on it. happy with outcome.

Didnt consider anything else after all the positive reviews on the opticoat.

Wanted uniformity with the tint - I thought the rear windows came naturally darker but wasn't the case with mine.

Not sure I am happy with the tint job though, gonna wait for a couple of days for it to cure then see. particularly the job on the rear door windows towards the top. See if i can take some shots of it ans post up.

Wheels opticoated as well.

Where the std little dots are on the windows ( rear windows and back window) the tint doesn't seem to go all the way to the edge? Will try to post pics.

Love the brakes, both colour and function!

Is it not a factory tint? All M-Sports in NZ have factory tint, which if you look at my pics is pretty dark - probably darker than I'd normally go for.

Forgot to say, great looking car!

OptiCoat looks awesome. I only did one coat of OptiCoat on mine, to be honest I'm very happy with just one.

Wow! Are you allowed such a high level of tinting in WA?
It's 35% here in Vic.

Nice job. I'm getting mine 'Opticoated' this Saturday. Not much choice in providers in WA.

The only thing I can complain about the brakes is the discs are cross drilled and/or slotted.

Thanks guys.

Didnt come with factory tint I think?

I have the same shade tint on my other car with no issues... Fingers crossed .. But 35% is the legal level in WA.

Blackfan who are you getting opticoated with?

I went with Shikyna. Only one coat including wheels and no interior work but I am very happy with their work for $660. I suspect that you went with Freedom car care?

Yeah I did. Really good job by Mark. Recommended! There is a scratch on one of the b pillar gloss black covers and he is coming round to buff it out even though he already did it. Full of tips and advice as well.

Btw took car in to get wind noise checked today and technician agreed there is noise so have it booked in to fix - he seems to think it's the sunroof being slightly raised towards the front of the car but will also look at mirror cap and a/b pillar. In 2 weeks time. Will also fix a couple of light scratches I found.

Also took the car for a "proper" drive just then with a mate who has raced and tuned engines. Very nice
