This is how the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera arrived to us, stock wheels & stock suspension.
Stock suspension is ready to be taken out! We installed a set of Swift Sport Springs. Unlike other suspension manufacturers, Swift created these springs with 3 goals in mind:
Maintain or improve a smooth, comfortable ride
Increase handling by reducing body roll and squat in search of overall suspension balance
Lower the vehicle within tolerance of each vehicle's usable stroke
With that being said, this is why we chose to install these springs on our customer's Gallardo Superleggera!
Driver front measurements before lowering springs, 1.5 inches. | Driver rear measurements before lowering springs, 2 1/8th inches
Driver front measurements after lowering springs, .5 inches. | Driver rear measurements afterlowering springs, 1 inch
Everything is all buttoned up! We had all windows tinted (#nomorefishbowl), the exhaust tips ceramic coated, Swift Sport springs installed, w [...]
The best part of owning a vehicle is making it your own! Our customer wanted to add a personal touch to his Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS by powder coating his wheel gloss black with a red (color matched) pinstripe around the wheel face. Along with the wheels, we had the fender vents blacked out to add some more contrast. We had to get rid of the fishbowl! We went with Suntek's line of carbon ceramic film to keep the cabin cool during those hot summer days and it also helps protect the leather interior! Last but not least, we added a custom exhaust system to really make her rumble!

Are you looking for a race exhaust for your 07-12′ Porsche GT3 or GT3RS? Look no further! We recently installed a SharkWerks GT3 / GT3RS Race Exhaust on our customer’s 11′ 997.2 GT3RS. He had a SharkWerks exhaust installed already but he wanted a throatier sound. Not only did we install his new exhaust, we also made a few adjustments to help reduce radiant exhaust heat. Check out the process we took to install this exhaust system!
Out with the old in with the new! This is the loudest exhaust system for the 07-12′ GT3 and GT3RS. Not only does it sound great, it also drops 60lbs of excess weight over the OEM exhaust.
It’s been an EXHAUSTing week here at Shine. Several exhaust installations have been booked during this week, one including this Lamborghini Murcielago. Our customer wanted his Murci’ to sound just as aggressive as it looks. He already has a Fabspeed rear section and secondary cat-bypass installed. We are installing a primary cat-bypass made by Fabspeed as well. #LOUD Check out the some progression and after images of the build process below!
The tear down process begins! We had to remove several exterior body pieces to gain access to the stock catalytic converters.
Our customer purchased a 16′ Porsche Cayman GTS wanting to protect and keep his new car looking just like it did when he drove it off of the showroom floor. We recommended going with XPEL Ultimate self healing paint protection film on the front end to protect the car from the everyday hazards of driving. To keep the car looking like it did the day he purchased it, we applied CQuartz Finest ceramic paint coating to the entire car. He also wanted to make a few changes to the Cayman that we were more than happy to do for him! These changes included window tint, Rennline mesh grill kit and AWE Tuning wind deflectors.
Take a look at the final product. This Cayman GTS will stay looking like this for years to come!
Our customer brought his brand new Alfa Romeo 4C to us for a number of services he wanted completed. First on the list, was to remove the already yellowing paint protection film that was previously installed on the vehicle. This is a common issue with lower quality film.
Now that the old paint protection film has been removed, we began the process for our New Car Prep. This step is necessary for all vehicles that receive a ceramic paint coating from us. This process decontaminates the paint surface while simultaneously removing swirl marks, bringing the paint to a high gloss finish and creating a smooth surface for the coating to adhere to.
Hello everyone! We wanted to share with you one of our recent builds we have completed. Recently, we had a customer purchase a used GT-R from us. He hasn’t even driven the car and wants to add more power! We suggested that he add the AMS Alpha9 Performance Package to his newly purchased GT-R. Without hesitation, he agreed and we began the tear down process. The customer will be bringing the GT-R back to us within a few months to perform more upgrades to maximize the potential this Alpha 9 Package has. Below we have listed the benefits and potential (with supporting mods) this package could achieve.
Better performance than any supercar available
Capable of Over 205mph in the standing mile
Reliable 500+ horsepower increase over stock
OEM-like fit and finish
115% gain in horsepower with stock-like drivability

A customer of ours had his car brought to us to get an AMS Alpha 9 kit installed on his Nissan GTR. Customer wanted to bump up the overall performance of his car, while having it taken care of in a timely manner. With Shine Auto Salon having one of the best GTR mechanics in the country, the owner knew his car was in good hands.

Tuned by Robb Harper at Robb Tuned afterwards, the car would have a flawless map on it for daily driving and when the owner wanted to have a good time with the GTR doing some spirited [...]
Since our roots started in the high end detailing community, we are pretty well known for it. When the introduction of any new sports car on the market, we always see an influx of them over the first few months. Now, we know that the M4’s from BMW have been out for many months, the last few months we have seen a huge influx of them. All of them wanting the same things. Our New Car Prep package, since no car is perfect from the factory. All of them wanted some level of Xpel Ultimate Paint Protection Film applied. Most of them got the entire front end covered, while a few got just the front bumper and rocker panels covered. No matter [...]
