But I will say....Now that I have the new housings and the new HID's, it was worth it. It's done and it's done right (better than the old P13 AAC bulbs that were purple and fell apart if you even pulled on the wires...) Three exchanges on those bulbs that kept crapping out. They finally literally FELL APART. Like....I have NO bulb anymore because they are just plain old GONE. No idea where they went. But they sure as shit aren't in the housing anymore. So.... Got rid of those (as I'm tired of sending them back for replacements). Now...HID's. The lights match and look perfect. Much brighter than before and they actually match in color. And, they actually FIT the housing unlike another brand....which will break the housing they supposedly are made to fit. (sorry...venting about the shitty P13's I got which literally broke both my STOCK daytime running light housings). And yes, I did everything I could to install them correctly.

I have my stock arm rest if RJ doesn't have his. Shoot...I've got a few things I need to put up in the FS section.

Question... Is there any give to that arm rest or is it solid stiff when you put your arm down?

My CF armrest still has some give to it, but really only when you press down on it. The resin is somewhat flexible.

I ended up making it myself to see if I could, and because I'm cheap.

Some imperfections, but nothing major. I went the hand polished route and I need to go back over with a PC when I get one.

Nothing wrong with that. I should probably start trying the DIY route, definitely would be cheaper.

Got my rotors and pads installed this morning at T&T Performance.

Ugly stock rotor


Shiny Racing Brake rotor




I also got to ditch the roller skates when we installed the Hawk pads, so that was a nice bonus.

Looks like he did in that last pic. Aesthetically, those rotors look awesome! Curious as to your opinion regarding the rotors performance too. I ended up getting DBa's myself.
