im running 18x8 +35mm wheels with 225/40/18 tires. i am dumped pretty low on coils and i dont rub, but i also run more camber than most would and i have all of my fenders rolled. i am swapping springs on (DF210) this weekend. i dont see any issues with that offset.

New LED day time running lights, and added a silver mesh to the lower grill that I bought from lowes today

I think i can successfully say now that I have completed my blue theme!

If you have an 8000k HID kit that is also illegal, but these are more likely to get you pulled over. Blue is reserved for emergency vehicles with some private vehicle limitations depending on the state (i.e. volunteer fire fighter personal vehicles).

Your blue tinted foglights are within reason because they will emit a whiter light, however it was still a bad move because bluish light is BAD for driving in fog or bad weather because your eyes can't see in that range of the visible light spectrum as well.

Yah, post some night shots of the high beams. I can't imagine they will be as bright. LEDs look bright but they don't project light as far. Adding blue will also negatively affect the output too.

LED's don't have the projection that your normal lights would but, your lows stay on so it shouldn't be too awful.

DF210s will kill your struts in no time (I know you run them seasonal). They are Tanabe's S-Techs. They degrade handling and ride quality all the same. Just my warning.

To XSV Klutch, I recommend the +45s.

since your new I will be nice and help you out..but i would suggest learning how to use the search option because we have gone over this multiple times in this thread and it was actually very recently haha

But i made it myself.. i created a back surface, painted it black, placed a vinyl i purchased online ontop and then clear coated the entire thing

I found online someplace that sells a LED light that replaces your orange lights. It's bright white but, when you turn on a turn signal it glows orange. Maybe look into those (I'll try to find the link) or they make bulbs with a dark blue tint. I prefer the Sylvania Ultra's which have a light blue tint on the glass but they shine bright white.

^ I think I have seen those too. I might end up getting the Sylvania Ultra's and seeing if i can return these lights. I wanted to have the blue light because I HATED the orange. Its too bad the high beams are terrible because the blue looks sickkk during the day. When i took a drive after installing them I had people turning their heads left and right..no lie!

anything is an upgrade from the raceland coilovers i just took off. i have zero to complain about right now, but i know the struts wont last forever. ill just swap those out when they blow...not big deal.

i didnt buy s-techs because i've never heard anything good about them, but i wanted basically the lowest set of drop springs i could get my hands on. i want to ride low. the car is slow anyway, its a daily.
