Thank you, I love the look, it just pops...the pictures really don't do it justice. If anyone is interested, he is doing a package deal with the diffuser that he is making. Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser for the Sedan. Group Buy Inside!

How much does the carbon trunk weigh against the stock one?

Updates for the car...I should have the Seibon carbon fiber hood installed in the next few weeks and I'll be ordering up a set of flat black SSR 18x8.5's...not bad for 17.6lbs
Then its time for a turbo, turbo inlet, TGV deletes, air pump delete, kartboy crank pulley and meth

So Friday I drove to DDM Tuning and picked up a set of their 35 watt 4500k HID setups with the slim ballasts. An hour later I had the setup on, hidden and I can finally see at night. For the money, I think the kit is great. The light output is INSANE compared to stock...I ended up not drilling a hole in the cap and drilled a 1" hole in the bottom of the light behind where the stock power wire enters the assembly. Sorry for the crappy pics as the iphone is all I have...

looks so much better without the bumper on

i was gonna do this a long time ago but since we have separate low and highs i didnt know what to do. i do know i hate driving at night on the highway at high speed!! my lows suck and cant drive everywhere with my highs on. i could try raising my light beam up because it only projects so far ahead on low and i dont like it. i really want 55w 6000k but i guess ill need two kits for low and high. did DDM saying anything about that?

I didn't ask about the lows/highs but you will need both if you want to do that. Most of the posts over on 3g state that they don't need to use the high beams anymore. From what I've read from others is that you will actually get more light output out of the 35watt vs the 55. Also, you don't need the harness unless you are doing fogs.

Are you talking about the battery harness? I was gonna get it because I've read posts where dimming and other stuff is a problem. My car is very low on voltage anyways and I have not done anything electronically! I've read subis suck for power output!! Older cars did a mod to there alternators with the signal output wire but they only have 2 wires vs are 3 and I can find the right wire. It tricks the alternator into thinking it has low output and it works harder giving you more power, more spark on the plugs ext. Could wear it out faster but for more power I don't care! Anywho I'll call them and see what's what. Is Sharp HID the vender or is DDM? Or they completely different companies?

I'm glad you posted this on my thread...
But now that it's here...what happened? My are still running without issue and I've only had compliments from everyone. What did you end up going with? Did you use the harness?

ballast went out. light flashes really fast on but wont stay on after only 4 days. DDM tuning slim ballasts with no harness. i have try to break the other one and cant do it. like start the car with the lights on and flick them really fast ect, havnt blown the second one but i have a feeling this is going to be a once a month thing, unless i go full refund and just get a good bulb.

I click mine on before I put the key in and they fire up everytime. Don't know if you've tried that but it may be worth a shot.

dude how did you go about getting the cuppler to stay on where your intercooler piping meets the throttle body(or intake manny which ever this is)




i absolutely can not get it to stay on. ive repositioned the elbow many different ways and this has slipped of 10 tomes (no exaggeration)

Judging by your picture I think my piping is shoved in more toward the throttle body. Did you try using the t-bolt clamp that came with the fmic? It looks like you have the stock hose clamp on there ( I'm running the stocker FYI) what kind of boost are you pushing? I've seen it hold 26psi without any issues. Did you ever pressure test everything to see I'd you have leaks?

thats shoved in as far as itll go. and whats a t bolt clamp. if its the ones with the 10mm nut that kinda sticks out perpendicular then i didnt have enough for that. im running like 22psi
