    I was having the same problem till I realized I was doing it wrong. It doesn't fit up flush with the seats, but instead back against the bumper. Put the front in to the angled slot push it down till it hits the tire then pull back smartly towards the rear. It looks dumb and leaves exposed metal at the front so I just put it back up in the top position. If I ever need the extra room I'll just toss it in the garage and throw a blanket in the back.

    Yeah, I saw your post a while back. Great idea. I have some of those same organizers under the bed, hehe. I am considering going that route too.

    I installed some fog light covers (really just a film) yesterday. I opted to go with the GT yellow ones since they'll complement the blue and red on the car already.

    Thanks, they come seperate? Is there a way to link them together so they dont move around?

    They actually fit pretty tight in there on their own. But you could easily buy some double sided tape or a Velcro kit and sick them together. Or punch holes and zip tie them together...

    That would be my vote too.

    How noticeable is the yellow light when you have them on? That looks good on your car, even though I normally don't like yellow fog/driving lights.

    Did the same in my previous car with HIDs on, the yellow is glaring...took them off instantly...

    It's fairly yellow, but not to the point it's distracting. Definitely better than bluish white in the snow.

    Yeah, I will never drive my vehicle in snow conditions but can understand how the yellow can help in those conditions. I think I will just go with another pair of Sylvania Ultra ZXE H11s in the fog lights and see how it looks. The Sylvania Ultra ZXEs in the low beams was a substantial upgrade over the stock bulbs. Not quite HID nice, but more than I anticipated. I highly recommend the ZXEs if you are not going to go with HIDs.

    I like the yellow for the fogs as well.
    You should use a bulb that has a very low color temp. like 3000K - 4000K so as to produce a more yellow light (I used PIAAs).
    I also wired mine to work as DRLs, I think they look great on all the time.

    Wow, a year since my last post already. Not much happened this year, as I was busy with other things. My poor FiST got into a couple unfortunate parking lot incidents over the summer so next year I will be getting some bodywork done, but to hold me over I did some interior upgrades last night:

    I bought some bling for the handbrake since swapping over the Euro one isn't cost-effective or easy to do, as well as installed my armrest cover from RedlineGoods.


    I am very impressed with the quality and the color is a near perfect match but the nappa leather is somewhat smoother than I would have hoped for, I'm going to contact them and see if they have something with more grain like the samples I ordered awhile back.

    A word of advice on the install: there are some retainer clips that are used to help secure the front end; these will not fit when the thicker leather is installed over the OEM armrest. It looks like on the installation guide (I believe a forum member on here wrote it) they just tightened it down and bent the clips, I chose to remove the slots on the armrest, as it's an easier/cheaper part to replace than the bottom half.



    Before I did this I could not get the front half to seat properly.

    I will eventually get around to upgrading the shift boot, but I really only plan on taking apart the center stack once so I will wait and do that when I install Boomba's short shifter.

    nice work and you will enjoy that shifter once you get around to it :)

    I bet, not looking forward to putting that lockout collar back together though.

    It was the toughest part, for sure. A thin, but broad flat-head screwdrivier should help the most in tucking the boot around the collar. This is the first non-molten orange interior with the armrest cover I've seen - looks great! I know what you mean about the difference in texture, but us MO guys didn't get a perfect match, either, if it is any consolation.

    Got switched over to my snow tires/wheels again, swapped out the chrome lug nuts for black ones. Really completes the look. (Sorry, no pics!)

    Well... I sure like to move at a glacial pace. That should change in about six months when the bumper-to-bumper warranty is up. :D

    Anyway, I got the car tinted last week (40% all around):


    (You can also see the black lug nuts in this photo, as I haven't put my summer wheels back on yet.)

    PS: Since a few of you have asked, I put up the wallpapers I made on my Flickr account. Enjoy!
