Thanks!

I won't be tuning for a while. Had a bunch of issues with my last car, and I'm just looking forward to simply driving this one for a little while.

AWE is right down the road, though.

I'm with you. Too much troubles with tunes IMO.

Where's the best place to get them from, as far as the quality of the color match goes?

And thanks for the compliments, guys.

Check around your local shops, many around here are able to remove them and get them sprayed for around $30

Easy enough. I've got a collision center at work, that shouldn't be very hard to get done.
