It is but I'm patient at the moment. Ofer thinks its the bulb. He's sending me new bulbs ASAP.

lol, no because I've been driving the hell out of it. Don't know about you guys, but I've never had a car with a usb port, and I've loaded over 60 favorite CD's on a 8G flashdrive, without using one quarter space. Drive all day without hearing the same song. Cheap thrill huh? Anyway, it's just another aspect of the car I like.

Thats what I will be doing then. You did a great job, they look very good! Any advice for removal? I plan on trying it today.

Now What?

Suggestions? See picture and video.

Major Flicker - when Auto is set to ON, but lights don't come on and I press the button for the fog lights this flicker happens. Flicker goes away w/emergency brake engaged. If Auto is OFF and I do this the flicker doesn't happen. Recall my left RS light has never worked yet.


Fogged Lights - lots of rain today and now the light is fogged.

The can I used was one of their Primer+Color ones. I don't really have tips for removal, I took them out when I dropped the bumper for my reverse LEDs. I tried to get them out before that, but the fit was so tight around the bottom of some of them I was worried I'd scratch the paint. So I waited til I was doing the lights instead. I know tram got them out, maybe he's got tips? Good luck!

I took mine out as well with the bumper on. It was a pain in the ass trying to push the bottoms out. I looked up a thread in the DIY section. Let me see if I can find it again and I will post it here.

Just tried to install my vinyl fender stripes...couple lessons learned for when I try again with new stripes.
1) do one stripe at a time. Too many curves in that area to keep both stripes on one sheet and be able to get them both straight and flat
2) a spray bottle of soapy water is your friend. I was prepared for this actually, but it bears repeating for anyone thinking about doing their own vinyls
3) my rotary cutter, while it does an awesome job, cant make for me not having the skills to make these stripes look like the really expensive oem stripes that end above the wheel well :(

Ofer is going to refund my RS light setup. Very nice of him. He thinks maybe the circuitry in the 2013 might have changed. Bummed this wont work but appreciate his professionalism. Ofer is a solid guy.

glad it's getting resolved in some way...are you gonna sit stock, or do a retrofit?
