Do the fxr retrofit. The oem projectors are obsolete compared to the fxr.

Might also be possible to use the separate module from the facelift coupes.
and the autoleveling sensors that connects to the control arms

not if one wants a depth. fx-r has more width vs. how far the light is thrown down the road. you might as well just suggest him to do a TL + ZKW hybrid projector retrofit if you want the best.

and the belt tensioner thinggy, maybe the alternator just incase and the fan blower motor it goes out randomly. and the ICV needs cleaning. i'm sure i could make a longer list, give me time,

exhaust cam position sensor (still orig.)
windshield washer pump
