    2006 Black Raven XLR-V, Shale interior


    WindRestrictor provides good customer service! Stephen called today after receiving my email plea for assistance and we walked through the trouble checklist. I had actually performed the install correctly, just hadn't activated the 12V side properly (that and a more sufficient grounding). Product looks GOOD and we'll be taking an evening drive tonight to check her out!

    Plasmaglow Lightning Eyes (white/amber)
    Aft flank turn/brake indicators (LED)
    6000K Headlights
    6000K HID fog lamps
    CarbonXP 35 Window Tint
    Wind Restrictor with Glow Module/Ghosting
    Embroidered underhood/trunk deck lid insulator
    Custom Floor Mats (Lloyd's)

    It sounds like our cars are going to look a lot alike!! A very clean look!!

    I also want to debadge mine, I think we are stuck with the taillight and grille emblem. I cannot find any options, unless I can get something custom made.

    let me know how all your upgrades go!!!

    when I get back from overseas I'm changing out the grilles and I have a private project I'm thinking about doing lol

    Geez, did yours come with a TRUNK? Mine has a slot in the rear for perhaps a small purse! I would love to see pics of where you put 10" speakers........

    I replaced most of my light bulbs with LED's, looks great! I just finished a custom cold air intake using Spectre components. I started a thread with a pic. Corsa exhaust to come, not sure about the wind restrictor, I like the wind

    Mods to my V so far are engine gauges, Spectra air intake system, Re-mapping the Mass Airflow Sensor, and installation of HID fog lamps. This weekend's project was installation of an auxiliary audio input and navigation switch to allow input of nav data when moving.
