Ah sweet! I hadn't looked at side markers for a long while! I'll probably just stick with my "JDM STI" ones. More for OEM-ness and nostalgic value, especially since I paid full price for them ages...

Thanks! Some people aren't a fan of the wheels, but they've grown on me. When I look at the 18" BBS I had, they look kinda too big. 17" seems to help with giving this car the proper sporty look.

Lame! For where the battery is located, it won't be noticeable on the handling. It's towards the center. It's like carrying a fat kid in your car.
