He, Yeah. I had this SN in other forums and changed it a bit to be relevant with this forum. I kinda regretted it after. I'm glad the mods here are cool enough to let us change it.

Is the installation like this: https://www.handa-accessories.com/hrv/crossbars.pdf ?

Ideally, I'd get the crossbars and use them occasionally for trips. These instructions look like such a PITA that I'd be tempted to leave them on permanently if they didn't add so much noise.

I finally got around to taking pictures of the roof rack with the bike rails. I got a set of really slim rocky mount rails. I like these a lot better than the older Yakima rails I had on my Scion. They don't hold a bunch of water when I wash the car.

I've never had either. I have an HID projector retrofitted in the OEM headlight.

This is what my headlight looks like.

I actually had these LED fog light bulbs before I replaced the whole thing with LED DRL lights.

I REALLY like the debadged rear. Was it as simple as a hair dryer, dental floss, and Goo Gone (or something similar)? I debadged my Civic and they were just glued on and the adhesive came off pretty easily. I want to remove the "HRV" and "AWD" tags on mine.

I also want to replace the license plate bulbs with LED's but because I still have halogen bulbs in front, I feel like the car wouldn't flow well... If the car wasn't brand new and under warranty, I'd put my headlights right into the oven and throw in some retrofits.
