the swaybars were a great choice, same ones I have. Although the springs may have already killed your struts by now so maybe a new strut/spring combo or coilovers-choose your poison lol. Although I wonder if a front strut bar may help your situation? As for the pulley it may free the motor up a bit but supposedly if you do a lot of highway driving you may actually lose mpg's , you should try making a hybrid intake like a few other people on here as it seems to have better flow for the intake without really changing it

HID's reflect differently depending on a lot of factors like lens, bulb position, projector angle, etc... And I'm assuming it's just so bright (about 3x more than my headlights) that the reflectors in the driving lights look that way to the eye.

Edit: ^^^^ pics of your 20/35 tint?

Overall, thats pretty interesting ive got to say.

The Hella's are "offroad only" and HID "retrofits" are illegal too. So yea... I see lifted trucks run similar (non hid) set ups and my lights are 6" from the ground lol. If I get flashed at a lot I won't run them but till then it's game on.

My tint...35% on the sides, 20% on the back window. I should have gone with 35 on the front 2 and 20 on rest. But it looks different from different angles.

Not going through insurance because they'll raise my ****ing rates and dont have the money to repair it out of pocket.

i was just wondering what suspension you have?

Anyone install the UEL headers for our cars yet? I really want to make my car louder (I'm not driving a hybrid ) but it really seems like most exhausts, with the EL headers, sound like fart cannons in my opinion. But I really can't see spending $700+ JUST to make the car sound good.
