    • Drilled OEM lighting
    • DUAL automatic power windows, passenger/driver
    And a pictures of:
    • Red Grill Lighting

    Link for console mats :)

    Custom fuse box you'll have to wait for a DIY guide :D My car is in storage right now. Cannot get any access to it. In sudbury (where i live) there is so much snow, fwd cars are not suitable for winter... in fact cars in general. i drive a Forester XS by winter :(

    also it's like -40c and colder

    Headlight amber removal is simple... remove the amber reflector.. Arm0ged0n has done it to his car.. look at his headlights :)

    The drilled lighting i was talking about is simply the ambient lighting that came with the HFP. I drilled them to make it brighter hahaha

    DUAL auto power windows is another mod i've done. Just got a new pencil soldering iron last night, so i can continue working on this :)
    it is a mod to make both driver and passenger windows go up and down automatically with the push of a button :)

    Will supply pictures of grill lighting which is switchable (in the summer, May 10th 2013 to be exact) Same with cylinder cover :)

    ok haha. i think cost is under $400! when you make them promises to promote their product, they better give us the best deal :) Did the same with a guy from TSUDO! He gave me the exhaust at cost. just told me to take pics, post sound clips before and after and measure any performance gains... if any. Also got a dBA scale so i will post max output. guess maybe i'll post it here... worst case, will post it on 9thgc just to hold up my end of the deal :)

    $650 for BC coils is a steal considering that the 8thgens still cost over $800 (used).

    Just call BC/and company directly, talk to the owner or supervisor of the company. and go from there. Well chosen words go a very long way :)
