I have the OEM fogs in right now, so maybe I'll sell them and put the hellas there. Then again, it'd be almost the same as having them in the lower grill area in terms of problems during the winter. By the way, does anyone have a good way of removing the brackets that comes with the hellas? I run a 300 PFT and I'm having problems getting it off....

As for removing the bumper, I'll get around to it eventually. Was in a hit and run about 3 weeks after I took delivery...some prick hit my car in the parking lot and didn't leave a note. There's a 12"x1/8" streak of paint missing from my front bumper...

A bit off topic, I was trying to record a video of my '11 WRX's clicking clutch problem, and in the middle of it it developed into the "broken firewall weld" squeak problem. Daggon 3G WRX...
Wouldn't be surprised if it was mine, lol. That was a long while ago then, since I got the metal bumper made 3 or 4 months ago.

Could always mount the lights down there, but that would remove some of the uniqueness. It'd still be cool though, just like most of that dudes build. Bunch of nifty but inexpensive mods. I took the brackets off my hellas using a concrete step to hold them in place (horn off the edge of the step) stand on the bracket and break that bitch free.

Sucks about the bumper, at least my destruction waited till almost a year into ownership..... Lead to some good times, and some great learning experiences though.
