Subbed! If you need any help getting something installed feel free to give me a shout. The pa peeps love to have install meets.

Awesome! I'll definitely need help when I get an exhaust, which depending on money, could be very soon!

I may need help with my HIDs (en route as we speak), just because I don't know if I have/need tools.

HID's are pretty easy to do. Already did them on Lauren's '10 sedan actually.

Installed HIDs late last night while at work. Retro-Solutions 6000k. Worked like a charm, no problems whatsoever. Pics up later tonight.

Re: drumbum897's Build Thread

Exhaust was put on last Wednesday. Car feels and sounds so much better! 2.5" piping, performance muffler (can't remember the type ), and a high flow 2nd cat. Later down the road I'm hoping to replace the 1st cat as a high flow and get headers as well. Now what do I do next??

I was thinking of swapping out my tweeters and mains next. Although the way I have it EQ'ed makes me happy for now.

Are you going to make it to the kop meet? I'd love to see your plaid interior. That sounds like a great idea! I love plaid haha.
