If youre interested I can offer them at an EXTREMELY reasonable price shipped (need zip), or even better, of course, picked up (San Diego). Send me a PM with zip code and I can get the total cost.

Lol. Part of me wants to do a retro and part of me wants to wait for an entire xv/impreza headlight assembly with projectors to come out for our car.

I think shipping would be steep as hell, UPS says ~$30. If you want to discuss details, such as how much it would cost you elsewhere to buy a kit with similar/same items + tax + shipping, if its still a good deal for you then Im sure we can work something out. PM me though.

Id say "look at the lettering in the picture", but its not exactly legible.

Looks like the Perrin to me.~$30. I have the same one. However I cannot comment on the reception since I never even used my stock antenna.

Gotta try harder man lol. Honestly there's 2 ways to do it...stretch your fingers in there like hell OR, remove the headlight assemblies. I have bigger than average hands and did both of mine without removing the assemblies.

Pop the trim on the left side adjacent to the battery, fold it back, then go in from where the trim was. It sucks. But doable. Small Needle nose pliers are a lifesaver for me in there. On the right side just pop your intake out and do the same. The other method is using a flathead in between the "V" cut of the back of the eyebrow light housing. Worked for me also.

Needle-nose pliers or a fat tip screwdriver make the eyebrow lights much easier. Just press on the one end until it moves.

If you can, let me know if you can hear any drone in this video. I have mixed opinions about what that sound is.

The car sounds good, it seems like a lot of intake noise. I've noticed just with the stock intake and a Perrin filter the cabin volume increases quite a bit. I have a BRZ exhaust and the sound difference is minimal overstock especially without the upgraded panel filter.

Yea I love the intake noise. Especially the whistle it gives out when you initially give it gas. The stock setup is great and from what I gather is the exact same thing performance wise but as a member on here previously mentioned, the cleared space and rumble is worth it for this thing. There are a few down sides like having to avoid large puddles at all costs so you don't flood your engine and the lingering whistle when you accelerate between 2 and 3,000rpms at times but I've gotten used to it. Not a big deal and I can barely hear it. The price is the biggest in my opinion. Thing needs to be cheaper. Had they not had that 15% coupon I would've not purchased this thing.

Yeah man, in terms of that whistley noise, that's the CAI. How the tubing is, the filter, etc it makes that noise. The resonators in a stock intake simply quiet all that down because 4/5 people don't want it. lol I've ran some crazy intake setups before. One of the best is a giant 4 barrel carb with only the intake filter base attached running to a ram air hood. Mmm.

As for the exhaust, it's definitely quieter than mine. Similar gargley noise, but I definitely get more drone (from what I can tell in the video audio). The drone is very similar to those running the axleback delete. The drone is similar with the axleback delete, but mine is more controlled. Honestly, I think a lot of my drone is due to the weird CVT gearing. On a 5mt, this exhaust would be perfect. The cruising sound and idle (for not having UEL's is almost mint).
