SuperbrightLEDs.com (great prices and quick shipping, hand them in my hand in 2 days using priority mail.) I picked up the "WFLS-x-BK series Weatherproof High Power LED Flexible Light Strip - Black Circuit". Cut a small slit in the solid vent to slip them through, that coupled with the sticky tape that comes on them holds them snug and secure.

Here is a link http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-bin/store/index.cgi?action=DispPage&Page2Disp=%2Fmini_tubes.htm

You can also pick these strips up at Auto Zone / Advance Auto but you are going to pay a few dollars more.

I also got my 194 replacements in today and installed, they made a HUGE difference in the look over the yellow 194s in that last pic. I will get a shot up and post it in the morning and I will get a close up of how I pushed through the vent..

Heres a daytime pic of the 194s, so glad to see those yellow bulbs out. Bonus to consider here, the WLED-x6: T10s have doubled the night time visibility over the OE 194 bulbs and the clarity is amazing. I highly recommend these to everyone, it is the best $3.79 you will spend on your XB imho.

I just did something similar on my 2011, I agree it makes a huge difference and looks so much better. I'd recommend this upgrade for everyone with a 2011 or 2012.

My DRL project will be posted soon!

Depends on what box arrives next haha. From the list I should get my weathertech visors in today. Springs and sways beginning of next week hopefully, wheels and shoes hopefully by the end of the week or next week.

Speaking of, got home today to a box of WeatherTechs. Cake install and popped my caps off while I was at it until the new shoes and rubber come in.



Lovin it more everyday, but seriously can't wait for the springs and sways to come in. Really want the drop and handling improvement more than anything. See ya soon with more pics.

Ok got a great deal on HIDs at the Import Alliance event and got them changed out this evening. HUGE difference, see for yourself. No more yellow lights, except for the Fogs and I just ran out of time to get them in tonight! I built customer panels to mount the balasts up too as well, will get pics of those tomorrow as well as the Fogs after I am complete.

Here are the custom mounts I did in the nice free space above the fender wells. I used a sheet of ABS plastic that I picked up from Home Depot and the sweet brackets that came with the Go On's. I think it turned out pretty well, looks pretty much factory.





Hope you like it!

Got the Spings and sways on, the ride is unbelievably better. The handling is ten fold increased, the power sway to the back when accelerating is almost completely gone. Curves are a blast now to push through and throttle down out of the apex.

DF210s and Hotchkis front and rear sway kit rocks!


Just buy it, you will not be sorry!
