    Phew. You are not a Steelers fan? That's good news! I can talk to you again. lol

    How long was the drive? I drove from my house (Maryland) to Tail of the Dragon in NC/TN. That was about 9.5/10hrs.

    Haha, no I'm not really a football fan, I'll watch it but I don't cheer for anyone in particular.

    Thats awesome!!! I've always wanted to check out the tail. Looks like a kick ass time.

    We drove from PA to columbus since we have family there, stayed for a night. That was 3 hours. Then Columbus to Nashville which i believe was 6 hours. Then Nashville to Georgetown Texas which I believe was 13 hours. After that I was dead. Never spent so much time in a car, driving none the less.

    Ran into some snags last night trying to fit the bumper on. The driver side fog light is hitting the intercooler tube. I even shaved off a little of the plastic to get it past it and still won't fit. This is turning into a PITA.

    I've seen a few '11s with FMIC.. I can't remember if they have the fogs still... I'm sure someone out there has the FMIC kit that keeps the lights. Don't know if it's your brand.

    The fogs are factory. And I read that you just have to trim the plastic and I've trimmed a lot already. I guess I need to trim the bolt too.

    Wait.. I found this thread on Nasioc (I believe he's on here too) and he has '11 WRX with Perrin FMIC like you

    RSutton's 2011 SSM Hatch - Blouch Dom 1.5, Work, JPM, GReddy - NASIOC

    rsutton.. I'm almost positive he's on here.

    He doesn't have his passenger fog light... Weird

    He states:

    "There have been some questions on whether or not the factory fog lights will work with the Perrin FMIC. As you can see from the picture...they fit perfectly. The passenger side fog does fit but has been removed to decrease intake temps. I need to find a sponge or something to put behind it to keep water out...but so far it is doing the trick."

    Pretty sure you just need to trim and possibly trim that bolt.
