Looks like a great site, I planning on purchasing a few of the - HB3-WHP9 DRL LED bulb HB3 (9005) Type Daytime Running Lamp replacement bulb with High Power 9 Watt White. I feel like that would match my AE real well in the fog light housing.

I really like the blacked out headlight trim and smoked corners. That bumper is an Mtech II correct?
