All the pictures got fucked up in my C5 thread so I'll just make this new one for all three cars and use forum upload from now on.

Having a hard time loving mine since my wife got this 04 GTO. Installed pfadt diff mount on the C5 and the back end still hops all over the place like the cars gonna fall apart when I try to light the tires up. Haven't done anything to it since. Just been using it as a daily :(

Prolly try new tires and shocks and see what that does when I can get my attention back on the Corvette.

First things first, the GTO needs tint & tune and the Lincoln needs some repairs and a retrofit :p Then its vette time I swear :cautious:

Nah, not yet at least. Still the original jaguar 3.9L V8 and 5R55 trans @ 120k miles currently. But thats the plan whenever the engine or trans kicks the bucket. Ideally, LS1 & T56 to match the other cars would be cool :p

Its kind of rare (02 LSE) and my wife and I both like the appearance and handling feel of the car a lot so definitely no getting rid of it.
Got a power steering leak and a battery drain issue to take care of, then its retrofit time. Hopefully get a couple more years of reliability out of it before a catastrophic failure calls for the swap.

I never had good luck with aftermarket HID kits in the past, but my wife did her research and decided she wanted the 50w 6500K Morimoto elite kit. Lightwerkz had a good labor day sale so I surprised her with it before she could order it.

First impression:
Man this is a lot of shit none of my other kits ever came with

Also got rid of the amber corners in favor of switchback led like the other cars

Sorry for not using the good camera for this stuff and not getting before/after shots :( Just take my word for it, the H11 halogen bulbs was pretty bad in those projectors, the fog light bulb swap I did overpowered them o_O

I was planning on using the Diode Dynamics SL1 led headlight bulbs for the Lincoln's projector retrofit, but now I'm wishing I ordered another one of these elite HID kits while it was on sale :geek:
