Re: (carreragt7)

Thanks. Not sure if you have your DRL's disable or not but either way if you can remember or if you still have DRL's did or do your rear parking lights get activated by the DRL's? Mine seem to and while I can live with DRL's I don't like having to have the parking lights on along with the DRL's.

Re: And finally washed it and here are the pictures of the new one!! (S40Racer)

Thanks everyone. My current plans and what I have on hand are BSR stage 1 and Opti-flow...tint later on this year and that will probably be about it until she's paid in full. <p>Kentis: I don't have anymore pictures of the lights right now I'll try to snap a few later once it's a little darker here.

Re: (kentis19)

Actually R-Designs have the T5 2.5l turbo/AWD and all others in the US are 2.4 NA/FWD.

Re: (slrising)

Nice pics of the car; I love a clean silver wagon. Your pictures of the Yokosuka context made me "natsukashii" (nostalgic)... One of my best friends lives in Green Heights near the JR Nagasawa station. I miss Japan and wish I could go back more often.... and BTW, I totally approve of your WagonR - I think it's the coolest of the Kei cars and it's probably what i'd end up driving on those tiny Japanese streets. Even a V50 seems huge in Japan.

Re: (855turbo95)

So it's difficult for me to tell from the pic you posted with the lights on, but does the vertical part actually have a light in it, or does it just give the illusion of being lit from a reflection from the lowbeams?

@raoulduke:<p>There is a bulb behind the middle piece. Either an LED or incandescent depending on low beam bulb type (halogen or xeon).
