thanks for the info on the lights!

the wheel bolts right on but the airbag doesn't plug in, there's some adapter i gotta get somewhere i think even the dealerships have them.

i've been trying to stay busy with the car but i'm in my last 3 quarters of college and only have 6 classes left, 3 of which are for building my portfolio (game art and design major). i love this freakin car though, and i'm learning so much about cars in general it's awesome. hopefully Thursday i'll change the o2 sensors and then sunday i'm meeting a guy to look at some wheels. someone wants to trade my TT wheels for a w58 and i'm up for that!

here's the wheels, just something to get around with, don't really care right now since i don't have the cash to drop for some rota grids, which are my favorite wheels of all time lol. so will probably snag those for $400 with tires and get em mounted next week hopefully.

no more updates for now, rained yesterday and the lights didn't fog up so good news lol.

rained again today, didn't have time to change the sensors cz i had work. so hopefully tmr after school i'll get it done. LEDs should come in tmr too, will get those in the tail lights and city lights and where ever else i can stuff them in, trunk i think is a 194 too. trying to decide on what color to dip the car now. i'm gonna post some colors up, let me know what you think, wheels i'll be either dipping or painting anthracite
here's a pic of how the wheels will look.

go to dipyourcar.com a full kit is aorund 300 bucks depending on how much paint you want. comes with a paint gun, compressor thingy, respirator, everything basically. it's pretty legit. once you buy the kit, you can just buy gallons of paint and change the color of your car anytime you want. plastidip is the future IMO. they even have chameleon and pearlescent paints, it's pretty amazing how far a rubber coating has come.

they have a lot of videos and tutorials on how to do everything, they're pretty great about all that. the way to get the chameleon and pearl colors is by mixing glossifier clear plastidip and mixing it with their powders that they sell.

Guys got any tips on the o2 sensor change? I'm having a really hard time disconnecting the plugs. Any ideas???

Edit: found it, little thing up top to push down. Couldn't manage to get the passenger side out, but got the driver side all done. Try again tmr, working now

got the new booties mounted! lol the stretch is a little much for me, but that's all i got for tires right now. if someone wants to trade some 205,45 potenzas for something like 225, 45, i'd be really happy to trade, 17 inch btw.
here they are, i think it looks mean and awesome as hell, just a little too much stretch. but i like it!
