Lights are cool for car shows, as you said. I like the green especially. The tint situation is off, can you go a lighter tint for all side windows?

Lol to everyone that is concerned with the CAI - it was barely used, nearly half price, came with the dry filter upgrade, and was bought here on the forum. I get that the gold wrap is ugly - but come on it was a deal...

I did a TON of research before replacing the exhaust and SW retro catback was by far the best option IMHO. It sounds like old school muscle without that loud raspy fart pipe sound. I have a video I tried to upload last night but it says I don't have permission on this forum? I will make a new video tonight with a different camera and upload to youtube - then post here for you.

Also FWIW - Stainless works was awesome to work with and the cat back fits perfectly to the stock cats so you can keep the warranty on your car.

Almost every color I can make with those lights are illegal. The DRL halos and the 6000K HIDS are totally legal and all I use while driving. The "demon eye" light mod is just a little bulb that gets added when the headlights are made. Ive got them set up to a XKchrome Bluetooth controller so at a show I just turn them on and change colors and patters with the phone APP. Was it pointless to have them - yes. Does it look sweet at a show or with friends, worth the $90 - to me yeah why not

LOL thanks Junior. I should start looking for a C3PO sticker to hide on the airbox somewhere. That cracks me up

No problem man! I don't think name dropping means a whole lot to Stainless Works but the sales manager I dealt with was Todd Nelson and he provided the best customer service I could have asked for. Best of luck to you if you decide to go the SW route. We did the install ourselves with regular jack stands and only took a few hours so is definitely something you could DIY
