Default try this..

--I am not sure wether the adjustment screw is the one on the top left or top right, anyway remove the 2 bottom screws first and then try the inside screws and see if the fogs become loose. You will know because the adjustment screw is not attached to the bumper.
Hope this helps.

PS. pics is highjacked from someone, my apologies.

they wont be that yellow. you need yellow lenses for that. i had the Hella Yellow Stars and although they reflected yellow on the ground and were nice in the rain and snow, the light appeared to be white with a bit of purple on the edges.

Default Hey Kalex

Are those STI 17" Gold rims you got? If so where did you get them and how much you pay for them?

I could love to get those too..

Default They are factory wheels...

I bought an extra set for $350 and I painted them with high temp paint.

It's been 2 months with several washings and has not peeled. If you apply thin layer at a time you shouldn't have a problem.

My cost? $10 + lots of masking tape and newspaper

Talking Here is the pic!

Nice GOLD RIMS tho!

For the ION Bulbs! It is much nicer then I thought, and it looks much better then the stock blubs, it is bright, got some yellow shade and at different angle it produce different white yellowish light... I guess it is hard for the camara to capture the true color... But I am sure it is as bright as the stock one.

Installation was easy from the help I got here! thanks all!

I just wash my car today after the installation, funny thing I got it at $23 each PIAA H3 Ion Crystal, not the SUPER WHITE one...
so total about $50.. it doesn't package in pairs.. see last pic..

Enjoy!
