Old pic..I'm going to be using a ski-pass sub/box instead of the HUGE box I have right now. I also replaced the amp with a better and efficient Directed amp.

Guess I'll post up. I've got a lot left to do. Just joining in on the fun...

I'll post in chronological order from the day I bought it. Excuse the shotty cell phone pics:
















Reflectors, coil overs, front lip, another set of rims, possibly going FI, in that order. I've had black grills & gills sitting around here for a few months. Maybe I'll install those today.

WHOA! It was too chilly this morning here to drive in with the top-down to work. LOL. Sorry, I couldn't resist! LOL.

BTW, a little trick on the error codes you have - looks like you need a reflash. Anyway, as follows:

1. You'll notice when you place your foot on the brakes the code goes away, but comes back when you release.

2. With foot on brake, and code off, turn on lights.

3. With car in neutral (duh), release foot from brake

4. Turn off lights.

5. VIOLA! No code. When lights are on, the code will come back, or when you restart car the same, you'll just need to restart the sequence. Just a little temporary bypass to get rid of that annoying code while you're driving during daylight hours and until you get a reflash.

I hope it cools off for you soon. That's brutal!

I disconnected my DRL's after I installed AE's...just haven't gone in to the dealer yet. Will your method still work?

Yeah. One of the first things I did with my car when I bought it back in '05 was have it serviced with an oil change and the DRL reprogrammed off. Later I upgraded to OEM LEDs. I stumbled across this sequence, later I had the LCU reprogrammed to eliminate the code.

My hardtop was originally jet black, I painted the sides of it LSB and left the top black. They now sell carbon fiber vinyl for exterior use, you can probably use that for your roof...real CF will be ridiculous $$$.

I bought the hardtop used locally from someone on craigslist, it was jet black and I had to get it painted. The spoiler I actually got from GJGM3, he can chime in as to the supplier from Europe...I forget the name.
