      I'll try and get some tonight; they definitely help. Not perfect, but I wish I could do a before and after shot, cuz the glare before was horrible. I had my headlights maxed out downward and still didn't like it. Now, they're aimed nice and look 10x better

      Not a wall, but a fence, lol. Probably about 15ft from the car


      Nice cutoff, but still a little glare. But it doesn't seem to bother anyone else, so I'm not worried about it. I got the xentec kit off eBay and they came with the glare shields installed. They even have a spot cutout so hibeams still work (and probably cause the little glare I have)

      If your not going to lower it, least get rid of the tail lights.

      Wife won't let you buy coils? Dude, just buy them and have 'em shipped to a friend's place. Put 'em in there, then drive home. She won't notice. If she does, tell her your springs sagged, or that you got the coils for 28.50 shipped. Problem solved.

      Yeh, they're nice. The cutoff is about mid-trunk for most cars, so doesn't bother anyone

      That's because of the glare shields :-P

      If I do lower it, it'll be a cheap spring kit. No way I could afford coilovers right now

      Cool, but no one sound me seems to be into dubs, so no local sales. And yeh, I'm not a college student, but I'm a broke dad barely getting by, living paycheck to paycheck . Everything done to the car has been gifts (birthday, Christmas, etc), so maybe I'll get some next Christmas

      might as well spend the extra little cash to get the head ported and polished
      car looks pretty good, get r/s/r/s tails instead of those candy canes,
