In my opinion the flashbeam in the focus is not that bright, I'm guessing xenon headlights would give me a brighter flashbeam

Question for you cats!

I was going to make my own thread but I figured since it's based on mods maybe I could find an answer here.

I'm having a difficult time deciding between brands. Steeda vs. fswerks vs. eibach vs. cobb etc etc. My plans are lowering springs, swaybar, exhaust, and CAI. I can't decide between all the brands and I wanted to know what you chose and why! Obviously I don't want to dish out wads of cash when I can find it cheaper but I am interested in learning why you picked the brands you did and do you love it or regret it?

Thanks :)

EDIT: if you think this belong in my own thread, let me know. I will happily create one so I don't need to flood this one.

Springs - Eibach. Why? I can't STAND H&R if I can help it. HORRID customer experience with them. Also, love the stance Eibach offers with the Sportlines.
Rear sway - Eibach. Why? Keeping it consistent.
CAI - Steeda. Why? Got a great deal through a forum member. However, it was on my short list.
Exhaust - Magnaflow. Why? While it isn't 2.5, I think I will prefer the sound over the others. But I might jump on a FS Stealth.... depends on my mood though??

Thanks for some input! I LOVE the magnaflow sound, someone told me just to get the muffler and have a good custom exhaust shop around here do it. It would be a lot cheaper apparently. As I was also told to build my own CAI.

I'm really not crafty enough for this haha.

And the Eibach Sportlines are still a debate whether or not they will fit my 2014. Currently someone is about to install them so we will see if they run into any trouble that has been rumored.

I have a buddy who did this in his Mazda, it's pretty sweet.

Someone's done it. But it wasn't the 5 panel.
I couldn't do it as I have the rain sensor assembly.

Seems odd that there isn't a seemingly reputable source for some aftermarket HID/Projector setups for the MK3. :(
