New Radar Emblem Coating

So I recently had this coating installed and I think its great!
There are now so many pretty lights that pop up on the screen.
Highly recommended however install is intermittent depending on the weather. Works only in -0 degrees C temperatures though.
Bonus is that sometimes you might get a deal and have the whole front of the car coated...like mine.
Great for winter months!!

They could have at least taken a disc sander to it, smoothed it down ... not good for the laminar flow :-(

You know what would be nice? if Canada/US approved the adaptive LEDs like they have in the UK. Admittedly I was nerding out and being generally excited to see the on/off array of LEDs.
When I got the car I quickly realized that my shiny brights only look around corners and auto-highbeam.
Disappointing for sure but still love the LED system (front and back).

I mean, even this morning driving Stoney through thick fog it's still lost on me on how people neglect to turn their lights on. DRLs don't mean you can see them from the rear.
Some "turn-on and forget" lights would be nice for those that aren't too aware of their surroundings.

...first world problems
