Small update time. I ordered a few misc. things on ebay. A different dome light, and the rest of my leds, and this:

There is only 1 left. Brand new, red, and saleeennn! For $60. I feel like its pretty legit. lol I might add splatters to the red when it comes in. Not sure though.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/360534703733...84.m1439.l2649

Oh and I was debating on removing my subs. Any thoughts on that? It was kind of a high school thing. loool. I just feel like its getting annoying and I know my car is sitting lower in the rear because of them. I wanted to do the auto x at focusfest. I would have all of my space back again as well. Although everything is brand new.

Btw here is the list of everything I have left to do before ff, Ive already done alot of it and this is all that is left:
-Rear strut bar
-Different sway bars (maybe only if its a good deal or I have a full time job by then.)
-Remove subs (maybe, as stated above)
-Different front bumper and put lip on
-Flex rear wiper (where do I get this?! lol)
-clean up engine bay some (possibly red wires and a sprak plug cover.)
-FSwerks stealth exhaust (cant go revving around the track like a bumblebee.)

Lots of win here. Congrats on the strut bar. Hopefully you won't have any problems with fitment since it has no bends or anything. I'm sure it'll work out though.
You might be best off by getting SVT sway bars. Although, i think you could find a thicker aftermarket front sway on here. I can't think of the brand lol.
Another FSWerks stealth buyer aye.. I think you can do better! These are getting so common lmao. But i won't disagree that they sound amazing
You can get an Edge (or mazda 3 i've heard works) wiper arm from Tousley.
I wanna auto-x, but you can leave your sub in the hotel room! That might be what i do
nice list though man

Arggg I didnt think of the whole no bends thing. I was like ehhh idk if I should do it. Thenn you were like bro you should go for it! lol Im sure it fits though, it says 00-07 and he already sold one. If that one didnt fit then he would have complained about it and the seller would have changed the years. If it doesnt work I should be able to return it. But anywhooo yeah I might just take the subs out at the hotel also. Its like carrying around a dead horse in weight. lolol

Oh have you looked into hotels for us at all anymore? I know dustin has been posting some on fx. Ill post the links here if you want.

Strut bar is on, but it doesnt do anything besides look cool. So I might resell it. lol Then I finally found that air leak...its on the hose that has the chrome space ship looking thing. Then I bought some door handles from Brian, I bought a Ghia dome light (projector style lights, brighter probably.) What else...oh I got almost all my LEDs in. I only need the ones for the license plate light to come in.

Oh and I am picking up a RS replica front bumper later from a local. Thought I would drop the bigger news last. lol I am picturing it looking like this, but I dont know.

Im going to his house to look at it in a few hours.

The bar really made no difference in handling? Maybe you don't go fast enough

Grats on the bumper, it's gonna look sweet

I love that style of bumper when it's the real thing but haven't liked many of the replicas. If it looks as good as the real thing, it's going to look great. I'll be very jealous.

1sloho has the RS collections rep and it looks damn good! Only difference between the RS collections & the collections rep is the rep uses U.S. sidemarkers.

If your talking about an RS rep bumper, see LouBomb's, that's an RS rep.

Uhhhh idk which one it is, I remember looking at Lous and its different. its the exact one in the bing image I listed above. Im assuming thats a RS collectons rep. It does use U.S. turn signals and some round fogs.

Here is a pic (I rotated them all for you guys!!) :


While I am at it, here is 2 pics of the strut bar:




Oh and I may get this euro plate sometime:


Does anyone know where I can get yellow turn signals at? Ive only seen orange ones. But im ordering some yellow fogs for the bumper. They are 4'' rounds. Then I was thinking yellow turn signals to match...or just leaving them black the way they are.
