    I think michaelwfox posted a still of this guys car previously.

    Pretty sweet setup, I think this is a DGM like mine. Those Enkei TSP6's are growing on me, I think they're in Gunmetal, they flow with the car well.
    The darkened headlight assemblies is really sick. Wish I could do it to mine, but I'm so afraid of pulling them apart. What if you get a leak in there and they fog up with moisture and stuff. Also It must reduce a lot of light output if it's not reflecting the light as much. I just can't do that to my HIDS!

    They look great, but I am also afraid to pull them apart. I think the Limited headlights look great as they are. I am interested in the yellow DRLs... and also trying to do something with the fogs... maybe an HID kit?

    I remember reading that the DRLs are actually the high beams run at 40% output. If that's the case, you would lose your high beams if you modified your DRLs.

    You could just replace the bulbs with 3000K right? For the high beam...

    Seeing how many have been updating their headlights makes me like the stock bulbs even more.

    Yup, that's the one! I do like those wheels, I probably wouldn't buy them though. I have my heart set on some NT03s.

    Subispeed has a great fog light kit. They look awesome.

    There's a solutioin. The DRL clip is under the air box. If you pull that apart then the DRL's are off, but your high beams still work.

    I just hate the yellowish color, they dont look good with the LED strip, if it even goes off. I am not sure why the LED strip is there because the projector still works as the low beam.

    Thanks guys. I'm actually hoping for a late July delivery. It's just really hard to be patient.

    I'm looking at different options to hardwire a 9500i into the headliner powermirror plug. These are my options:

    Invisicord Regular Version: Invisicord Products

    Invisicord Micro Version: Invisicord Products

    MirrorTap 2000 Series: MirrorTap Radar Detector Power Cords

    MirrorTap 2000 Series: MirrorTap, Radar Detector Power Cord With Inline Fuse, Subaru, Impreza WRX – J28 Design Inc. Online Store

    Has anybody tried any of these on the 15 WRX. I am trying to figure out which gauge wire would best fit for our cars.
