First Few Days...
My First Mod: AceMotors Gunmetal Altezza Taillights
By the way, if you're looking at buying these, they'r... Show moree good. It is somewhat difficult to make them fit properly, but what do you expect, they're made in China.
2nd Mod: Not a huge mod; Silverstar Headlamps. Yes, they do make a slight difference. Especially in the color temperature. You can kind of tell the difference from comparing the headlights to the fog lights.
3rd and 4th: Added a chrome exhaust tip, as well as a chrome license plate frame to make it match
5th (Not Shown): Added LED stop lights. If you're thinking of ordering these, the red lights will work fine. You don't need anything but the bulbs themselves. The turn signals DO require you get the adapters, otherwise the blinker will blink really fast. Be aware installing the adapters requires you to puncture the cable itself, which may void your warranty (something I don't want to do... yet).
7th: Changed the grille. I'm debating whether to keep it black, paint it to the color of the car (keeping the inside black), or trying to find a black chrome paint for the trim of the grille.
8th: Got my windows tinted! Woo-hoo! Now it looks all dark all over the place. :)
9th: Got me some 17" Scion tc rims

Got mine for $183 shipped. And yes, the ... Show morepackage does weigh a lot. The packaging probably weighed more than the headlights themselves.
So, I decided to do the install myself. It probably took me about an hour or so to get them installed (not including the cabling), and just so you know, I'm NOT a car mechanic or something. I barely know where to put my gas. Seriously.
I'm using this car as a learing experience to get to know how my car works and what I can do to it.
To install the lights, you have to remove the bumper and grille. There are about 6 screws to remove, including 2 which are hidden behind the wheel well covers. If you need the diagrams, I'd be more than happy to email you where they're located. Just send me a message on the guestbook.
The bumper and grille semi-removed. All I needed was access to the side screws, so I didn't remove the entire bumper.
This is where the 3rd damn screw is hidden. This is the ONLY freakin' reason you need to remove the entire bumper. It is right underneath that screw that is visible. I couldn't take a picture of it since I got lazy and didn't remove the entire bumper off, and I was the one taking the pics.
The BLACK/WHITE cable is the ground.
The GREEN is the parking.
The GREEN/YELLOW or GREEN/BLACK (depends which side) is the turn signal.
