You did a great job picking out those wheels, they fit your look perfectly.

haha, I actually met up with Superdan to get mine.

Thanks man, it really means a lot.

^ hahaha, I though when you said get rid of those nasty tail lights you meant the stockies. Yeah I only had the 3Ds on until November then I sold them to Danteneon. After I sold them, my sister yelled at me because she wants a set for her neon! :banghead:

And yeahh I know I need to make a new sig, I only have Photoshop on one of my computers and it's annoying to use where I have it set up. I'll get a new one soon though

yeah, i used the top screw to adjust them up and down. I think I may have figured it out. I think the shroud over the bulb may be crooked. Hopefully I can fix it

Yeah those shrouds over the bulbs are horrid on the black housings. Consider yourself lucky if it doesn't ever fall off and rumble into the headlight itself. But in other news....where the hell have I been!? The wheels are on the car and I'm a week late to the party!! They look awesome, I love them :) I also love the headlights! But I say shorties over s-style especially if you plan on a black hood in the future.

Thanks Crystal, I think they look pretty good myself. Yeah, I'm realizing after the fact that those shrouds fucking suck. Now I light up peoples houses on both sides of me. I hope they don't fall out. :roll:

I agree about shorties for an AAR hood, but I doubt it'll be happening soon. I'm pissed. I found one listed on the local Craigslist for $125 but the guy never responded to me then a few days later deleted the post. That would've made me so happy to get one finally. Oh well.

haha yeah. That's what I'm hoping. I realize it probably won't be soon because I'm super poor and have more pressing issues right now. But someday in the future, I WILL have one. In the means time if I get eyelids I think I'll do S-style then sell when the hood happens.

Also here's a better pic of the cai. As stated earlier, blue tubing will be replaced.

I'm curious to know what others have done with the wiring for the AIT sensor that I clipped on the throttle body. It would just hang otherwise.

Thanks guys. I really think they set the front of the car off perfectly. Once it gets lowered down a few inches it will look perfect.

little update: Found a set of new Tokico HPs for sale locally. I offered the guy $200 and will be picking them up when I get paid...this will save me at least $63 as $263 shipped is the cheapest I've found.... hopefully I'll be getting a CF AVS spoiler as well :twisted:
