Your toughest part is over...now comes the real fun and spending some hard earned cash into making your junkyard dog.....vicious.....start with the basics.....breathe easy and welcome aboard.. :B:
Welcome to the club....now get amber DRLs
intake and exhaust, billet grill and brushed bowtie will be first. is there anything to do about making the lights brighter? our other car has HID's and the av's headlights are obviously dull in comparison.

also where is the best place to get all this stuff? believe it or not this is our first american auto :)


Check the mod section...nice thread at top with some links to other threads

XROVER did HID mod....others change to siulverstar bulbs....and change fogs to 50w bulb too....

Check them out and search for others...tons of mods done already...

?Chatting away at the CAFCNA

Xrovers HIDS look great and really light up the place....if your not looking at spending that kind of cash because it could get pricey....look into just getting some replacements....I have the Piaa for the lows..and they look very cool..... :B:
