    "New" is relative, i am reading this forum since beginning and did some postings, but i decided to introduce myself now.

    I got my black 3.3GT Stinger in 10/2017 and still happy with the car. No real "problems" at all. Only the rattling back noise thingy made me crazy. But its fixed now.

    Upgrades i did so far:
    - LED scuff lights
    - OEM Puddle Lights (had to import them from the states)
    - "E" badges upgrade and "stinger" at the back
    - some interior upgrades
    - komplex Car HiFi upgrade, 13channel JL DSPs and stuff and Hertz speaker
    - Maxton Spoiler Kit
    - MS diffusor

    Working at the moment at a "new" look of the rear apron. 4x 10,2cm Akrapovic (exhaust embellisher?)

    Here are some CarHifi pics, have about 230 pics, so i had to choose only a few:

    The main goal was a "hidden" install and the option to get the car OEM again. Further, i want to keep all comfort features of the Stinger Headunit (volume, next song, etc.). For better result, i am thinking about to connect a handy direct to the JL System, to avoid the terrible Headunit.

    I had to order a new pair of A-pillars (86Dollars each). So I can switch the Stinger to 100% OEM now, if needed in the future.

    WOW!!!.....You have done an Outstanding job. Love the install, very clean. :thumbup:

    Were the spacers for the front speakers custom made? Are those aluminium?

    Yes, custom made and yes Sir, aluminium.

    The JL Audio 13TW5 Subwoofer is a killer. I am afraid to break the rear window.

    Here are some pics of the puddle light and the DMZ LED Scuffs. I cant upload any movies to see them working in the dark. Sorry.

    I will try to make some more pics of the the stuff i ve done right now. At the moment i am thinking about to make the front- and rear spoiler, diffusor, sidebars, vents and fake vents, devil claws, and some interior parts look like "forged carbon" via water transfer printing(?). Dunno the word in english. More to come.

    Welcome, and great work.

    It would be useful to post these mods in dedicated threads in the appropriate forums, so more members would see them.

    The lounge is just a place to say Hi..
