I did the front of the car through vendors, mirrors, and door handles. The material was a new Suntek Ultra film that came with a 10 year warranty. He had Xpel as well but recommended the Suntek as same thickness but more pliable and easier to keep adhesion on the panel edges. So far so good.

I have sped a little bit in Nevada on Hwy 80 as someone wanted to push me a bit tailgating at 90 mph so I opened it up. He couldn’t keep up and I pulled away easing off at 127 mph. After that little exercise, he got in line as he got to see what he wanted. The limit is 80 mph which is plenty fast but play time for a bit I suppose.

I am shopping for an Aston Martin Rapide instead. I realize I need more utility now than when I had a two seat the last time (12+ years ago). Who knew I wouldn't have same needs now as then? The Lotus at least had a back seat for the dog. Our dog seems to be calling shots...

That and I just don't get to do real sports car driving much. Roads are usually congested and the Aston drives best when you get on it. Seldom do the road allow for much "get on it". The clutch is heavy on the Vantage compared to the few other competing manuals.

Your setup looks insane!

I have Velocity AP decats installed on my Aston. They replace the passive CATs that are not monitored. I am retaining the factory exhaust. I wanted to preserve the factory sound, but get more power and more sound.

Fabspeed also makes parts for Aston, but Velocity AP is more popular among Aston owners. I think each marque has the preferred vendor even though multiple brands are available. Fabspeed seems more popular with Italian marques, especially Maserati.
