I dont see where my suspension has anything to do with this since all you did was correct me?





They sure look like it... To white to be a regular bulb unless his camera messed with the color.

My 6000k in my 12 looks just like that against a garage door.

lol I'm not a part of it. I think the signature is funny, myself. And I don't know nor care if they're HIDs. It's a good looking car! Back to the subject!

Thanks, but those are indeed the original headlight bulbs. Only the fog light bulbs have been replaced on this car so far.

My Grand Prix is an automatic (Manual sedans were rare to the point of being almost non-existent) so I definitely didn't want a second. Having one of each is the way to go, given the chance.

But wow. That's looking sexy in yellow lol Blacked-out front trim was a great touch.
The Mazda 3 was actually one of the cars I was looking at (There was a red '08 sitting at a local Hyundai dealer), when I was browsing local new-ish cars for sale. Very nice and tempting, but I'm glad I picked my li'l yellow sedan.

Thanks again all!

OEM locking lug nuts:

Here's today's very minor update. Driving a bright yellow car means getting attention, and being brand new it may draw other kinds of attention as well. I decided to invest in a set of locking lug nuts for the Fofo, yet another item that my GP has that I wanted the Focus to have as well. $40 for some extra security and peace of mind.



Obviously this is a very self-explanatory and simple set, but my camera found its way into things so I snapped some pics. Maybe I just like shiny things.

Inside the package are the four lug nuts and the appropriate key. One nice feature I noticed is that the key has little 'grips' (Note the notched rings) for tightening and loosening the nuts by hand. My GP's key doesn't have these, but for such a small thing they're really nice. Details count.



A comparison of the new nut and the stock piece it replaces. They are longer and stick out a little further than the rest.



Each is torqued to 100 ft-lbs and it's done.



I think that about covers it for factory accessories now, the Focus has what I wanted it to.
