Basically I was getting a vibrating noise, much in the same way as the vibrating noise you get in those "heavily Bass modified sound system on wheels". It was annoying.
I lined the bottom portion of the panels that cover access to the storage bins in the cargo area, as well as the panel that covers access to the tools, with the male portion found on "hook and loop tape" aka Velcro. Don't use to much, otherwise if you press on the release mechanism the door panel will stay closed and won't auto pop open. Also, there are two modules or electronic housings found under the tool tray. I placed some additional bubble wrap in between this aluminum modules and the plastic molded tool tray bin. This additional damper alleviates the tiny sound or 2nd harmonics that seems to be generated by the aluminim modules.
It is a standard kit, that works with the factory type halogen bulb requirement known as an H11.
I have no issues with blinding oncoming drivers, and the reason for this is the nature of the driving/fog lamp, it is a projector style housing. This design is more incline to work with a retrofit kit with an HID type bulb. The "extra" amount of light produced by the HID bulb is more than capable of harnessing this light and accurately projecting it in the intended manner designed by the projector Driving / Fog light.
This particular modification works 100% there are no compromises or drawbacks, in that, the HID kit works in perfect harmony with the projector lamp as well as the demands placed on the electrical system.
Great! Thanks MadloR! Thanks for providing good pix!! Next thing I'm thinking about doing is adding vais tech on the 400h. Has anybody by any chance heard about the vais tech SL2Vi news? When is it coming out? Has all the vehicles been tested on?
why not turbo the beast? 2" exhaust wrap isn't going to help anything, anyone experiment with an air filter or a chip? electronic supercharger?
The exhaust wrap was not intended to boost performance. I came across this back when I owned a heavily modified 1994 mr2 turbo. I needed some exhaust wrap for some shielding and in the end, also noticed enhanced dampening.
The left over wrap, I then used on my 2001 JEEP GCL w/ 4.7L and was AMAZED how much more quiet it had become. Hence, I wrapped the exhaust on the RX 400h and liked the additional noise dampening as well as reducing resonates under the vehicle.
