Talking New C.A.I. intake! First check off the list! (Almost)

Woohoo, got my tracking number this morning for my new Cold Air Inductions CAI! Hoping UPS picks it up sometime today so I can get it by the weekend and install it, take advantage of the nice weather we're supposed to get.

First (of many) mods for my new baby!

And as a sidenote, I love how I justified the 2SS/RS to myself as just getting everything I wanted now to save money in the long run, and yet it's all I can do to not keep dropping more money on it I don't see this trend ending anytime soon...

Haha yeah, it's a tough urge to resist.

And definitely agree on the black powder coat, that's the way I went. I love the subtleness of it, looks sharp. Will post pics this weekend.

Got antsy waiting for my new intake, so installed my new P13W LED foglights instead! I love the result, couldn't be happier. So much better than stock.

Stock foglights



LED and stock bulb side by side

And finally, side by side.

They look very blue in that picture too due to the flash. At night they almost perfectly match the HID headlights. My only complaint is, my foglights never seem to be on while driving. In fact, the only time I ever see them on is when I lock the car and all the lights go on. Is there a way to change it so they run along with the halo's for the DRL? And/or get them to run alongside the HID headlights? IT sounds like the only way to do it is to rewire them, but was curious if anyone here knew anything else, maybe a fuse to pull.

Thanks!

It arrived this morning! Took about an hour and change for me to install from start to finish.

Stock Intake



CAI Intake



Such a nicer looking engine bay! The quality of the workmanship on the intake is fantastic. Didn't notice any real sound differences post install, but the throttle response improvement is definitely noticeable. Now that it's installed though, I see what a huge impediment the washer bottle is. Guess the ADM race scoop and washer bottle relocation is getting added to the list...
