2010SVT: It's just an "EZ-Lip". It only costs like $30. It won mine for free - I took the survey on their website :)

Only thing is the ends closest to the wheels dont stick. So i'm either going to cut some off or something. I'd like to re-do it because I didn't apply it very evenly/symmetrically (the 3m tape). I hope they'll send me another since it didn't stick well enough on the edges.

Installed the E-Focus RMM last week. It's great! The car feels like the 1st day I bought it in Dec 12'! I can hardly feel it shifting, up or down, at all - much smoother. and the steering wheel isn't as vibratey . so far all around good!

sadly in the last week I've started to get some light grinding and bucking... I think the DCT clutch pack might be going again... sigh

edit: I started hearing grinding noise before I installed the mount

So you installed the E-Focus RMM and your DCT starts acting up?

No I started hearing noises before I switched the mount. I'll stay current on updating any more weirdness *crosses fingers

Decided to remove the rally stripes: I didn't like the color. If/When I do it again it will be black stripes. The car is dirty so you can see the outline the stripes left :)


Also I also got an exhaust tip for $25 at the store. . The outlet is 3.75 inches. I was looking for no more than 3.5 but thought this one looked good when I tried it out. It's pushed all the way in and think it's pretty flush.

Hey wizar10 thanks! You too :)

Here is the LED's i'm using: https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...-base/200/881/

I love them because they have a very unique glow! They are bright but not so bright that you can't stare at them - they are very pretty.

It was very easy to install!
1. Take out the headlight assembly
2. There are rubber plugs in the back of the assembly - you just pull them out and put them back when you're done.
3. The corner light is tricky to get to. I took all of the rubber plugs out and actually used both hands for this - 1 hand in the tiny pocket and the other in the larger pocket to the right. I just used my fingers and eventually got it out. That's all I can say, haha, sorry :/
4. before you put your headlight assembly back in , test the LED's. Plug it into the wire under the hood. Be careful with your headlights :). I use vinyl gloves so i dont smug them or the led's. If the LED isn't working, take it out and put it back in the other way (flip it over 180 degrees) and it will work.
5. put your headlight assembly back in and your done :)

I got some instruction from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ota7...B9FF683F9364BB
But it's difficult to understand so I posted my instruction too.

I don't think you will screw anything - just be careful when handling the headlight assemblies. When I was putting in my LED's I took my headlight into the house and sat down on the couch with it.

Actually I tried using some pliers too, and it didn't help. And there is more chance to break something using tools I think. So I suggest just keep trying with your fingers :) . If you can't, find someone with long skinny fingers :)
