      Lol. Doesn't he usually delete his own posts?

      I'm still just learning about performance caRs but saving weight at the wheels seems like a simple and effective mod that can improve so much more that just HP performance.

      By the way prienzo, the light output has gotten better. I think I just needed to either get used to the white/blue balance or the bulbs needed to be "broken in"? Not sure, but I definitely like the 6000K's now

      The magic blue makes it look cool. A little too much blue if that's how much it would shine on say Silver or TiGrey. Where did you pickup the LED bulbs?

      Don't tempt me . Where did you order your fogs again? Were they the Ebay ones? I wanted to buy the PIAA 2500K/3000K but I don't know how I feel with yellow fogs with semi-blue xenons- don't want the R to look ricey...

      I'll have to take one tonight, I don't have any with the fogs on.

      A word on the PIAA bulbs though....I've gone through two already. I've only had them on for a year.

      It looks good but to be honest is less blue in person. I got them from the Philadelphia Auto Show. They had some stands set up for people who wanted to Mod there cars.
