Thanks.

I've never really decided whether I liked the G or the Z better. Certain things about both I like and a few about both I don't. The Z has everything I wanted in it and is probably 10K less, so I'll be spending that extra here instead:

I will be doing the procharger pretty soon afterwards. Need to break in the motor first, but I plan on ordering the **** relatively soon after I get the car in my hands.

Almost. I got laid off in February. 4.5 months of severance and vacation. Found a new job with a sweet raise which I started after 2 months, so I'll be double paid for 2.5 months. I just quit that job last Monday and accepted another new job where they gave me a f'n huge bump in salary and a wicked stock grant. I start at that place July 2nd.

So I figured I'm tired of messing with the HIDs, which have been a PITA for several months now. Time to buy myself a present.

I also just ordered all the stuff to do lockers/LSD and 4.56 gears for the Jeep. Trying to get some projects done.

If anyone needs some used 7th gen coupe stuff, I'm going to have a bunch of stuff... I've been stockifying since yesterday.

Yup, the color of the picture I posted. San Marino Blue. I've never even seen it before, it's pretty rare. I think there are only 4 of them for sale in the entire country right now. Daytona blue is the lighter more common color.

Hmmm... let me see if I can whip out a quick list.

1. Blue LED interior light set
2. Greddy EVO2 dual stainless exhaust
3. GroundControl adjustable coils
4. Acura CL Type S rear sway bar, made a big difference in handling
5. Konig Absolut's 18's in gunmetal with Nitto 555 Extreme ZRs
6. HID retro headlight assemblies. 2, one made by me one made by Larry (aka Littodevil) Not perfect may need new ballasts, but not sure.
7. AEM v2, not pretty but works just fine. Has AEM dryflow air filter, non-oiled and still washable
8. Several PIAA bulbs
9. McCulloch (GourmetGarage) HID kit with one dead ballast (9006 kit)

That's all I can think of right now... feel free to ask. My SPC rear camber kit get thrown away since the boots were toast and I bent the threads coercing them out with a hammer.

Well I haven't thought through the prices completely yet since I just finished removal of all this stuff yesterday. I'll put pictures up after I clean everything up. When I say + shipping, that means just shipping cost. + shipping and packing means shipping and the cost of packaging it so it's not destroyed by UPS, probably using that expanding foam stuff.

The EVO2 is in near perfect condition, I'm planning on polishing it up today but it's never touched the ground and shouldn't have any scratches. I was hoping someone local would buy it since I have no idea how I'm going to ship it so it doesn't get f'd up, and shipping is going to be expensive sending it in 4 separate boxes. I was thinking $600 + shipping and packing unless I find a scratch on it which I don't think I will.

I have two HID retros, neither are perfect drop ins but would be a good place to get one started for less than a new setup. These are easily shipped because I still have the original packing boxes.

The HID retro Larry did would be a complete setup including S2000 projectors, blue LEDs in the high beam reflector, Hella gen 3 ballasts, and Phillips 5K D2S bulbs. But there's a catch. They would probably need a visit to Larry to correct the rotational adjustment issue and I believe the ballasts are not working correctly. Originally this setup was around $1500ish, but since there are known issues I would charge way less than that. Not sure how much Larry would charge to fix them up, and not sure how much Hella gen 3 ballasts are nowadays either. $400 + shipping, which I think is fair since you may have to spend a few hundred more getting them up and running.

The HID retro I did has Valeo projectors and blue LEDs in the high beam reflectors. There is no rotational adjustment, but they are pretty close. If I remember correctly the passenger side is a bit off. The issue with these asemeblies is the clear lenses really need to be replaced. Which you could do yourself or have Larry do it for you. This one you would still need to get bulbs and ballasts for. $200 + shipping.

And I have a McCulloch (GourmetGarage) 9006 HID kit, that needs a ballast. These worked pretty damn well in the OEM headlights until one of the ballasts died on me. But one ballast is fine and the bulbs worked when I removed them. I imagine you could still get a McCulloch ballast somewhere. $20 + shipping.

The AEM v2 again isn't pretty anymore, but it works like a champ. I very recently (about 2 months ago) put a brand new AEM DryFlow filter on it, so no more worrying about oiling it, just clean it periodically. I still have the original installation instructions that came with it too. $60 + shipping and packing. The DryFlow was around $40 plus a few bucks for the v2.

Actually I'm really wanting to leave the assembly complete, otherwise it will be harder to sell it as just a shell.

I'm going to leave the lip kit on it. Taking that off leaves holes and I don't want to give the dealership any reasons to try and renegotiate my trade in price.

What you should buy is the exhaust, it's an awesome exhaust. If you want to come by and check it out, let me know.

I'm really aiming for the Apexi WS2 exhaust and not the Greddy EVO2. Everyone has that one. If you offer a me a good price, who knows I might pick it up.
