    Replaced OEM headlights with Sealight X1 LEDs -- have LED fog lights too, but those are trickier to get at, so I haven't installed those yet.

    How do you like the new LED bulbs? How is the beam pattern?
    Custom Mirage products: Cruise control kit, Glove box light, MAF sensor housing, Rear sway bar, Upper grill block

    Current project: DIY Nitrous oxide setup for ~$100

    They definitely improve the range of sight, and have a cooler light. I don't have any problem with the beam pattern -- it seems very similar to the halogens from what I can tell.

    The foglights didn't fit though, so I found a different set.

    Yesterday I bought a body panel rivet popper (or whatever you call it), and replaced the halogen fog lights with leds.

    These are the replacements that worked: XSPEED H11 H8 H16 H11LL H8LL 2600 Lumens

    And these were the headlight leds I replaced earlier: SEALIGHT H4/9003/HB2 LED Headlight Bulbs Conversion Kit

    So I still need the driver's seat armrest removed so I can have the center console installed.

    And I've been putting off the sway bar install too...

    Ooooh, I'd install the bar. It really doesn't take long. Use one of these crazy warm days we've been having. You'll really like the handling with it on.

    I recently removed the driver-seat armrest, and "installed" one of those cheap consoles that basically just sits in the rear cupholder.

    Basically amounted to: unzipping the armrest, removing the plastic cover (over the bolt), and loosening the bolt. At which point there is still half of the hinge on the seat, but it doesn't get in the way of the new console.
