    I still like the old better, but much to the dismay of Heather the new is kinda growing on me. She better find a new set of Morettes fast!

    And I'm considering having the leveling switch that came with the lights installed, which I held out on before because I intended on these lights only being temporary.

    Justin, I like both. I'm usually not a fan of any vinyl, but those stripes are subtle and look good. Very clean ride.

    I too like the Morettes better, though the others do look good. Are they official EDM or JDM spec?


    Ninja Edit: I know it wouldn't make for anything other than a cosmetic enhancement, but I think an STI hood scoop would look badass. Give it a little more of an "I eat babies" feel to it Just a suggestion from an onlooker

    I got the vinyls because the car looked too bland and I needed something to break it up.

    brfatal your car is awesome dude. I personally favor the new look over the old, I'm not the biggest fan of Morettes.

    It's actually not bad. On level ground they will never reach up into oncoming traffic's eye level (they are aimed about 5 degrees down). The only time light is focused into incoming drivers is when you're cresting a hill, which would happen even with a LHD cut off.

    There is a a RHD -> LHD conversion kit for JDM HIDs but it's $200.

    I spent a good 2 hours screwing with the leveling switches and made it a little better but it still needs to be fixed. I know the RH to LH conversions are ridiculously over priced.
