I have mine on, but I might be able to make a writeup. I mounted my switch right next to the E-brake because I have an ABS switch in the spot where the IC water sprayer switch goes in the STi.

Man, I saw that deal on EBAY but I saw it 2 days too late . That's one hell of a deal. How much did you pay for the paint. The one website says to add an extra $100 for it to be painted? That seems a little high to me IMO. There's no way I'm paying over $200 for just a scoop.

Did you wire that in to turn off the ABS? If so, that's a really good idea from what I heard about our ABS in the snow (I'll experience it this year I guess). I'll pm you

Nice! Man that worked out really good for you. Quick question for you and IB. Where can I get a good price on a set on Tein S. springs for the '04's? I found an awesome deal on them for the '02-03's but Cosmo said they're totally different for the '04's (really sucks).

$189 at jscspeed.com. That sounds pretty sweet to me. I will be getting those next summer once AutoX season returns. Too bad I can't afford the Flex coilovers

It was pretty simple, when watching somebody else do it for me. All we did was take the ABS fuse out, send a wire from the switch to one leg of the fuse out of the socket. Then from the other leg we ran a wire into the one of the fuse leg entrys. Then a wire from one of teh other fuse leg entries to the switch. And we used a blown fuse to pry the wires into the spot where the ABS fuse used to be. Works like a charm.
