2013 A3H update

After moving to Arizona from Texas, I've run into the rock chip dilemma & found an alternative to clear invisible shield applications ??

Decided to Vinyl Wrap the front and mid tire fender point forward with a contrasting color of Matte TriColor white, plus went ahead and added the grills & euro plate. Had to cover the 8, yes 8!!!!! Holes the dealer drilled into my front bumper for the original plate! ?

Added the M side stickers as well, and am in the process of installing the M performance carbon fiber Alcántara interior.

The contrast was the effect I was looking for and it pops out insanely!! The shop laid the material over the entire hood, but honestly it didn't look right. In person it looks even better the pictures, they don't justify the effect.
