    You have to loosen all the screws (with the clips removed), push the grill all the way in to where you like it, and tighten the screws down. Now, once having done this, the holes E&G allowed for the clips no longer line up, and you must decide on a way of modifiying the holes so the clips can fit back in. I just used a drill bit and routered sideways with it, then repainted the top with black gloss around the holes. It's the best i could do, it's too bad E&G didn't have it all line up better.

    Hey captain thanks for your help. My grill the spot for the emblem was made was off centered. When we lined it up with the center line of the hood the emblem was right in line.Was yours ok?

    Mine seems to be ok. I didn't install it myself though, the dealer did. I just had to adjust it after i got home.

    Hello Captain.
    Just read another post you were talking about hid foglights. I had my auto trim dealer install the ballasts and bulbs with no mod to the housing. Would you like the info?Much brighter thanmy hid headlights.

    That's alright, another fellow on here got his HID's installed too, so it's just the kinds of HID i bought, i guess.

    It's ok, i think i will be getting LED fogs anyway. All the colour without pissing off other drivers. More show then go.

    Re: SRXMods! *Very pic heavy*

    I am actually still stuck on trying to figure out the removal of the Electrical Centre (Underhood Main Fuse Box, behind driver's side headlight.) The other side is accesible through taking the airbox off, which i don't forsee being difficult. But i don't know how to move the Elec Centre without wrecking it! So until i can locate a service manual or a tech that knows how to, i am at a standstill.

    Re: SRXMods! *Very pic heavy*

    Thanks to RStittner, i changed out my awful yellow DRL's for sweet 6000K LED DRL's.

    Awful Stock


    Sweet 6000K


    An overexposed comparo. (Sorry)


    Bulb comparo (7440 LED)



    Done!





    I was also able to confirm AFL equipped models use a D2S headlight bulb. I'm going to be ordering some pronto now!
