Adams in and out works great (other than the baby powder smell) after using simple green and brushes.

Yeah, been in love with these since I first saw them. Can't justify the price but I REALLY want them!

Hey Jason do you use spacers to clear your Brembos? If not what size rim and offset would you recommend for Brembo clearance.

I just purchased some STI Brembo and now shopping around from rims...Any recommendation would help thanks.

BTW your car looks awesome, keep up the good work!

figure out what wheels you want, what sizes they come in, what works for what you want to do, etc. by the time you purchase wheels, tires, brembos and anything else you might need in that area (coils/struts/bags, lcas, camber plates/bolts, etc), a set of 3mm or 5mm spacers is just a bit of noise in the process.

here is the thread you need: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2208775

Over the weekend I have finally tackled a project that I have been building for a few months. I really wanted to do a new dedicated low beam HID projector and toss out my narrow Subaru OEM HID projectors.
My previous setup with TSX lenses were extremely bright and sharp but lacked the width I wanted in a low beam.

After a few months of trying to get parts, I finally got the OEM Lexus SC430 projectors, BMW E30 M3 clear lenses and OSRAM CBI bulbs.

Here are a few shots of the install.

Left is the unmodified, right is the modified projector



Here in one of the projectors fully modified to fit into the OEM bracket. Tons of grinding, lol



Modified OEM bracket ready to accept the SC430 Projetor



Projector in place.





Mounted and ready for alignment



Forward output and beam pattern



My new ultra wide projectors. This is at 25 ft (over 40 ft wide beam )

Thanks J, what a difference in width from the OEM Projectors. Hoping to get out at night sometime this year to see how they are, lol

See you at WBM?

Was going to do the s2k's but had too tough of a time getting them and got impatient. Super happy with the SC's though and much easier to install in out housing.

TSX didn't work at all on these projectors, the focal length is way off and couldn't get them even close to sharp. The 2.5" black clear lenses were almost identical to the E30 and much easier to get.

Really? you can usually find a pair on hidplanet or trs, at least last time I checked. That's the setup I'll likely go.
