    Re: 2001 ex coupe

    Removed all of the safety things.....how nice. Welcome to the forum since I never got to welcome you prob when u first registered. You will enjoy. Im not feeling the bumper as well or the graphics. Curious about what are your plans are to personalize the coupe since you bought it already with some mods.

    Re: 2001 ex coupe

    the AEM cai and HID's are what i've done so far. oh and the tail lights.
    only the bumpers and the graphics were on it when i bought it. and i guess you can count putting the rear back to stock something i've done too

    Re: 2001 ex coupe

    Yuppp. Well good luck. Only thing that i kept on my car from the previous owner was the 5% tint and upgraded pioneers speakers throughout car. Wish i could have met him/her and asked some questions. so, how long have you had this car? And wow 30k hids? U can see? I thought i was safe with the 6ks and that 8k would be pushing it. Lol.

    Re: 2001 ex coupe

    i've had it for almost 2 years. 30k's work wonderfully in the fog. that pic was taken from two blocks away. I have no need for high beams either, although i still want them. and JD lighting is the only one i've seen with 30k.
