Thought I’d quickly share the pictures of my two babies.
2013 Pacific Blue (original, darker blue) S60 with my own aero wheel covers painted the same color. Still turns heads, even at Tesla :-)
2018 “Cloudy Blue” (vinyl wrap over metallic black original color) LR RWD 3 with glossy black aero wheel covers (debadged).
I’ve shown the comparison photo standing next to a white Model 3. (Mine is the slightly bluer shade)
Any problems with your custom wheel caps on your Blue? I remember seeing them in person at Folsom those years ago?
Something like a 3-5% increase in range IIRC.
3-4% efficiency gains at freeway speeds. No problems other than wife curbing them time to time!
I have the spray paint ready to go, and a wheel protector type plastic piping on the edge that protects the aero covers themselves.
With your monniker I expected at least one red car. Nice looking cars!
I am thinking of going 245 45 R 18 instead of the OEM 235 45 R 18 for my 3, next.
Along with that, I will put on Method Racing MR 503 which weighs only 17.8 lbs, a saving of about 4 lbs per corner.
3 is a bonafide sports sedan. It just needs proper ‘shoes’.
I read somewhere that wearing a Rolex helps you go faster. ;)
Nope, I don’t wear any watch. Saves a few ounces of weight when racing. :-)
Thanks folks, for the kind remarks :-)
