Three Months Later...

I got my car back on Wednesday exactly after three months of being smashed by a "confused" Camry driver!

Northshore Collision Centre in Artarmon did a good job and were helpful and accommodating! I can't recommend them enough!

I got the full M Sport body kit from Jason @ Euro Division. The smash repairer said the quality of this kit is very close to that of the OEM one. And it's the best after market kit he's seen! I'm happy with the fitment given the difference in cost between this kit and the OEM one.

I got them to paint the diffuser in matte black to match the blackish look of the wheels. Going to replace the exhaust tips with black ones soon. Also, a brand new M3 steering wheel was fitted to replace my old one. It feels amazing!

They also replaced two front tyres with 235/35 ContiSport 5P. I have 275/30 sport contact 2 in the rear (they rub) and wanted to fit 265/30 ContiSport 5P but the cheapest I could find was $540 each! I might order Contis DW from Tirerack.

Yep but there are people that are willing to pay - I've sold a few. Maybe that could be the next groupbuy haha.

Wrap/paint/plastidip doesn't look as good as the real deal.

That's true for the Contis. But, earlier this week I just ordered Michelin PSS from Tirerack. You can also get Kumho, GoodYear and others (not sure exactly which other brands) but Michelins were around $350 for 265/30/19 plus shipping etc

I'd really love to! But I can't justify spending 1.1K plus fitting on it.

They pained the whole car except the roof and the boot!
They replaced the front tyres cos one of them got damaged in the accident and I pushed them to replace the two!

A GB would be nice! Tried wrapping. Took it off after 2 hours. And plastidipping came off after a week!
