Thanks guys.

The ones I got were from eBay. I just made sure to test them out before baking open my headlights. Sure enough there was one halo DOA. Now I just need to get eyelids to cover up that gap & nasty looking wiring.

Angel Eyes are all over the place. If you know the size of the rings,
you can order them individually, or order sets from vendors. I did this
mod on my Hyundai Tiburon, and remember the PITA it was. Just not
looking forward to it again.

How much did it cost you for the side skirts, rear bumper and spoiler? I'm trying to see how much it'll cost me. I got a base 6i but the previous owner put on the sports front bumper.
Well I received the rear bumper from another member who sold it to me. I got my sideskirts on eBay for about 180. I do have a pair of tungsten gray skirts for sale in the classifieds for cheap. I also got the spoiler from eBay for about 150.

I'd have to say I paid around 8-900 for everything.

Good luck with the conversion! It's well worth it.

Niiice. I bought my 6 stock also, and I'm looking to do the same to mine as you did to yours. How long/how much did it take for you to go from stock to the way it is now?

Ummm I've had my 6 for about a year and a half now and started to mod it about 8 months ago.

Every time I get paid, all my extra money goes to mods lol Overall for everything, I've spent a little over 2k. The mods haven't stopped yet though. All my friends tell me that I'm addicted. I tell them that I agree lol

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! I'm always here (almost too much IMO) to help my fellow members.

Good luck!

I have to get a picture up one of these days.

Btw, did you get those rx8s powder coated silver?

STEEL GRAY FTW!

nope, these are just the stock ones with the aluminum finish. I DID see an RX-8 with the shinka edition wheels today on the road and they did look pretty hot, even though I'm not a fan of chrome.

Here's the only side pic I have. The caliper paint is starting to flake off :( I'll take a better one later on and update the OP :)

Grats on the 6! These cars are awesome. Everyone that drives the 6 has a blast. The suspension is spot on with the right mods.

Zoom! Zoom!
