    Thanks alot guys yer the B4 was a great car and loved every bit of it till some old bag hit me from the back and written it off for me... apparently she didn't see me stationary at the lights lol!!!

    The first mod i did was change anything i could to LED... second mod is to add the STi lip to the front. But don't know where to begin looking for one or how to install it neatly.

    Cheers.

    Oh, pics coming up very soon... as soon as i get a chance to wash it... you all know how Melbourne weather is like lol

    Thanks man, very bright i have to squint at times ... stands out like hell!

    The B4 was awesome and would most likely own the 2008 Liberty tuned by STi in the very near future... just too expensive now!!! The rims on the B4 were G-Force i believe, cant remember... used to get a lot of compliments about it on the road, was a real head turner!

    Hey guys, just an update...

    I've changed everything LED that I can and transformation is amazing now! Just got the foggies to go now n low beams to suit each other, preferably 6000k but just not sure about how to change them exactly without removing the bumper!? Any help please?

    Blacked out the badges and put the bulge stripes on bonnet.

    Next things to do on the list:

    Painting callipers.
    Adding eyelids
    Adding STi front lip
    Adding SRI
    Adding BOV
    Removing side door moulds

    Can anyone help with these mods please... Where to get... what to install first... How to install?

    Any help would be great please!

    Changing foggies and parkers is in my thread.. --> http://www.ozmpsclub.com/forum/membe...tml#post271619 <--

    Callipers, @son of eevil did a good write up on that.
    Eye lids, add double sided tape and stick on. Not sure where to get them from, only cause i've never looked into getting them.
    STi lip, not sure if there's a write up on here, but I know for sure there's a good one on MSF. Get it from eBay
    BOV literally unbolt and bolt on new one. Plenty to choose from, do a little research and remember recirc is what you want to run on our cars.
    SRI, little different depending on what one you get. I'd recommend the Corksport one as they're on sale now too. Good value for money, go check them out!
    Side mouldings, need a little bit of heat (hair dryer or something) keep it moving, never on one spot for long, will soften the glue and use fishing line behind it to slowly (and carefully!) work your way along to pull it off. Wax and grease remover will help clean up any sticky residue.

    Depending on your priorities, i'd go SRI first as intake suction noise is awesome! The BPV gives that added wank factor which is cool and then the rest is just cosmetic.
    Adding to that, i'd recommend getting an air box with the intake too as you get the added effect of cooler air, which believe it or not is actually noticable!

    Hope that helps a little!

    Thanks heaps GibbA, appreciate that!

    With regards to your foggies, I want to get the same ones as yours although I found one that are 30W! Would they be too powerful or are yours good enough?

    Callipers should be easy to do, I'll just need enough time

    I really like the eye lids on our cars, they look good and especially the lip!!

    Just with the SRI, what's a good set up and how to get an air box? Anyone got any?

    Thx guys.

    No probs mate.

    Foggies, they were fine. 1 thing i'll say that annoyed me though, if you use those foggies, get LED parker lights. They look perfect with them. I then went and put cree parker lights in which look white in comparison, making the foggies look a little blue. SO either cree parkers AND foggies, or LED parkers AND foggies. That way they'll both look the same and all sweet.
    That said, I don't have them anymore. I decided I wanted yellow foglights instead. Put tint on, but with the LED globes it was still white, so went back to the stock bulbs with the yellow tint and now it looks sweet.



    STi lip looks ok, as long as there are a TONNE of screws in it holding it horizontal. If you don't put enough then it dips in the middle and looks funny. This is just because of the design of the bumper..

    Intake, this is the setup I've got and love it:

    Mazdaspeed 3 SRI | Stage II Power Series Short Ram Intake
    SRI System | Cold Air Box

    But there are also plenty of other intakes available. Cobb tuning, JBR, HTP, CP-e to name some.

    As in the intake? I got the stage 2 intake from a member second hand for $200 which was pretty lucky. They don't come up that often though (corksport intakes anyway).
    You can get them direct from corksport though, but obviously going to cost more plus shipping. Pretty easy to install, gotta remove battery and ecu to make it easier though. Few how to's floating around though. probably take a couple hours if you've never worked there in your engine bay before..

    Depending on when corksport bring out their 3" intake, I may upgrade. I'll let you know if I find one though
