But I do like the look of your car. What's the next mod on the list? You know you've got the Mod-Bug. Once you get it, you just can't stop.
Thanks. I'm gonna do front and rear sway bars and paint the chrome grille pieces on the front to match my car.

It does take a little more getting used to. You have to have more effort avoiding manholes and potholes.
Yeah, you get used to it. I have to go over every speedbump at an angle now and when I go in and out of driveways/entrances I have to go at an angle cause most of them are too steep for me to go in head on.

HID's in standard halogen housings is a no-no. I think Lexus had HID's in a non-projector housing, but it was designed in a way that light wasn't scattered all over the place.

I plan on doing HID's later on, but I'm gonna do a custom retrofit in stock housings. Aftermarket projectors for my car look like poo IMO.

Yeah looks pretty it does light up the road more but it causes glare, projectors are more superior when it comes to optics they give a clean cutoff and focus the light more. yeah there some non-projector housings for HID but they were designed for that.

Oh btw these arent aftermarket projectors you find on ebay, these are OEm headlights for the new tC's

Oh and retro FTW, but that costs a bit more being a college student and without a job atm lol.

Yeah, it can be pretty time consuming too.

So you're getting that Focus Mark? Nice, that's one that should have been released in the states.
