Any reason you opted to paint instead of powdercoating? Just curious...

Thanks! Rollingstone answers your question below! But yes, OEM Lamborghini paint.

Although I'll be completely honest, I'm really not a fan of the dark tinted stripe over the blinker area of your tails. I really don't think it flows well at all, sorry...
If I were you, I would get E92 LCI tails (euro amber blinker of course!) and get a very, very light tint over that.

Read the pic post (#17) it says they were powder-coated using a Lamborghini Paint color. Come on now
Thanks! I'm very happy with my color choice. As for the tails, it was just something I wanted to try out... I'm not going to keep it and will get LCIs one of these days...

Off topic and out of curiosity, would a automatic car wash rip off a spoiler like that?
Thanks, ebay special I would never take mine through an auto wash, but if 155mph on the autobahn doesn't rip it off, I doubt the car wash would.

I paid 360 euros (470ish dollars) This included all four rims painted, and two rims having some rash repair from my loving wife.

I needed to get two rims repaired, both would have needed to be resprayed.. so I figured, hell, if you are painting two, might as well do all four... and then we came up with the color since I was thinking a gun metal color anyway. At the time, powdercoating didn't even cross my mind, since either way they would have had to have been painted.

Again, thanks everyone! These pictures just don't do the color justice, and I will try and get a good shoot in one of these days. Carbon Fiber Diffuser and Black Chrome quad tips en route, so I may wait until then!
