I also hate swirls in black paint so I got the car buffed,waxed and washed!then finally yesterday I got the windows tinted( not pictured)..

Grats! I bet it sounds as great as it looks!

Silly enough for me, the biggest change you mentioned is the tint! As a daily lifestyle necessity in Texas, window tint makes a world of a difference haha

Check the J pipes first. I hunted and hunted and finally saw the j pipes were rattling off the main pipe. Sounded like heat shield rattle but Cranked down all the clamps in the process

I got them from eBay. Neondials was the seller which others have gotten from there as well. However I checked quick and can only find the smoked set. Ill check around and see what's out there.
