    ello ello!
    been a while guys, hope you are well. Its been about a year and a half since I sold my S5, packed up from Boston and headed back to Saudi. I have finally just gotten back into a fun car, as some of you already seen on Facebook. It was between a 991 gt3 or a m6 gran coupe. When I decided on the 991 gt3, there were none for sale in Saudi, nor was the dealer able to order me one. The dealer had only ordered Carrera S/4S and Turbos for my country, I had to get mine from Dubai where the GT3 is more common than Saudi. I found 22 GT3's they were all white, so I didnt have an option on color lol. However, it did have all the options I wanted such as Lift Kit, Red stitching with extended leather, carbon fiber, pcm....etc


    I've had it for a week and so far loving it.
    Here are the plans for the car:
    -Wheels to be painted gloss black.
    -Car to be fully wrapped in another color.
    -Carbon bits for the interior & exterior.
    -Centerlock aftermarket forged wheels.
    -Exhaust ( still deciding on which to get).

    so this happened....

    while under progress:




    final product (metallic gloss blue wrap with door jams, gloss black wheels, light tint)




    also I might of went a bit overboard ( the 21" rears and gold finish have been changed to 20" and gloss black)




    Will keep you guys posted whenever I have updates.

    Bader, the car looks friggin AMAZING. Can't wait to see it when it's done. Are you still apart of Superior Auto Blog? (I think that was the name you guys were using?)

    Where do you ship your car for work?

    Side note to both of you... Talk to Andrew Pierce from Wrappers delite about wrapping those pieces. He did the wing on Daron's(one of the masstuning founders) STI wing and it came out mint. He also seems to be redoing a lot of the work some another "shop" has been doing
    The disease runs deep, relapses often, not looking for a cure, just another sick bastard to share it with.

    Thanks all, I actually removed the wrap. The work was great, but any wrap has this "orange peel effect" and it was never deep as paint, so went back to original color.

    Pete, Thanks man, yep I still do car events on the side. I shipped my car to Bydesign Motorsport, its in the eastern region of Saudi. They work on most modified cars that you see from the Arab world.

    So here is the latest update, about a few months ago I had a mini car accident which lead to the wrap being damaged on 1 side of the car. It did protect the car from getting scratched. Also my parts came in, so I shipped my car to Bydesign Motorsport on the eastern region of Saudi. we agreed to remove the wrap and go back to the original paint as the "Orange Peel" effect was annoying me, the wrap was done perfectly but this is a thing with all car wraps. I just got it back a few days ago, and this is the outcome.

    Mods:
    -HRE P101 in Gloss Black
    -Tire Stickers
    -Stripes from 997 GT3RS 4.0 in Platinum Grey with Red outline , and 3.8 text instead of 4.0
    -Akrapovic Sports Cup Line Exhaust
    -Tech Art Steering Wheel (Thicker, Suede top & bottom, red 12 o clock ring & red stitching, perforated leather on the sides with red leather underneath that can be seen through the tiny holes, black painted paddles with the +/- in red)
    -Custom Floor Mats (Carbon Fiber, Suede, GT3 Logo, and Red stitching)
    -Rear View Camera
    -Front Matte Carbon Fiber Splitter
    -Rear Matte Carbon Fiber Valence
    -Side Matte Carbon Fiber Side Blades
    -Matte Carbon Fiber Mirrors
    -Matte Carbon Fiber Wind Spoiler
    -Carbon Fiber Dive Plates (to be installed)

    Car is looking good. The blue looked great but I can understand how the orange peel would get annoying.

    Saw this on Facebook but didn't realize it was yours now that it's back to white. It looks incredible, absolutely perfect taste in mods.
