@Two Step Performance Hey since there is a wait any chance I can switch to a Sonic Grey Pearl instead ? If that color is even available. If not boost blue will work ..
Thanks in advance
Sadly our supplier does not offer SGP. :( We have asked them many times, maybe one day! *fingers crossed*

I think it looks fine and heck at least you won’t get any wear on the edges from rubbing 👍🏻
Will the real FL5 Frank please stand up 🤣

The same gap happened to my R after someone at the gym backed into me. Luckily the PPF blocked any paint damage, but it did cause that gap on the driver side of the front bumper. When I removed the bumper to install an intercooler, it all lined up perfectly when I reinstalled the bumper. But, eventually, the wind caused the same gap.

hard to tell but it looks like the edges are cut up to the line and not wrapped, is that right?

that's what my installer said as well -- the natural flex as you're driving will work it loose.

ok, right on. The install looks great!
