Back up lights from tim....click on the link 3 posts above. I had the Polarg M6 before these and wanted to try out something different so PIAA it is (cheaper too).

As for the lettering I requested it...although I wish they could of put it a half an inch lower. Looks kinda high there...but maybe I just need to get used to it. Nobody better be in the market for stealing acura letters :mad: i did this for a reason :)

As for my exhauust...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me be an exception. My bodyshop guy said that it shouldnt be a problem since my tips arent that tall...and it's usually those guys where the tip is near the bumper that this happens to. What you say makes perfect sense to me, but then again you probably rev your engine up more than I do (at least I hope you do). Here is my problem...my pipe curves directly into the muffler section. Not alot of straight pipping to mess with.

already have that on my car. :D :D I swapped mines out for red blinkers and superwhite reverse like a few days after i got my car..... ;) doesn't it just look MUUCH better?! :bigok:
During the day it almost looks orange. I'm glad it shows red at night (for legal purposes). As for looking better....well....I think both of us might be biased...but at least it's different. :)

I got to the shop around 12:30pm...went to my local auto parts store to replace my toque wrench and arrived home at 2:00pm closed shop at around uh...6pm? took night time pics around 9:30 pm.

*remember I'm a bum (still looking for work) :p


Tomorrow I start on the radar hardwire kit...and the shock sensor install. (Which I dont think will be easy after prying open my fuse boxes....holy wires batman!)

I had my old torque wrench in my trunk prior to the accident. Needless to say, I couldnt pry it out of the twisted metal when I was trying to salvage it. I would gladly help out when I figure out how to do the hardwire myself.

Are you guys boycotting or something? check the link above. lol
:D

Not boycotting anything.. just giving people another place to buy them from.. if you are already buying stuff from Tim and want to also buy bulbs, it's all good.

For just bulbs, you can get them anywhere..

I love the backup PIAA lights.. :eek: One of these days, I'm gonna have to get a digicam.. :)

I like the red signals tho.. I think Vincent has them on his car too.. They look so much better than the amber ones.. but I still like mines for now.. :bigok:

Reason why I even joked about that is because Elegant and rominl kept asking me where I got the bulbs from even though I already posted the link. I think they just had a brain fart or something.
