I believe they are aftermarket, not much visually different but there weren't any Honda logos on it. As for quality, just by driving over the weekend the seem to reflect way more light. I'm getting another 15ft of visibility in the dark. That could be attributed to the beam alignment I did though.

Final verdict- equal if not greater than stock, but they are hella cool looking.

Aaannnddd I got the bull bar and nerf bars installed!



The nerf bars were easy enough to install and the quality is what I expected from a $120 dollar set. The bull bar however I'm not impressed with. No instructions were included, was tOld no drilling was needed but they neglected to tell me a dremmel was needed to get to the mounting holes.

New to me Sub

Dropped in Swaggers custom 15in sub enclosure. Stoked to have my back hatch area again. Going to pick up a speaker grill tomorrow. Maybe some LEDs also.



Next up is re-carpeting the back passenger area and I can't decide to redo the vinyl on the enclosure or carpet it also...Opinions?

It's nice. It's different than the one I had before but I my just need to tune the amp. Another surprise with it is that it's wired for another amp so me 4 channel will fit nicely.

I bought that same exact bull bar, but actually have it packaged up for return to Truck Gear Direct. Do you like it? and got any other pics of it mounted?

I just dont know if adding something to my E that is pretty much just for decorative purpose is worth it. I don't even think I would be able to ram shopping carts at Wal-mart without worrying if it would get bent lol

I like it, it is a cosmetic upgrade but when you think about it snce it is a lower end that wont offer much protection I'd rather have it collapse immediately in an accident and not have to worry about frame damage.

Bass Knob

Didnt like the underdash look of the bass knob....



I need to find a different knob for it, I really dont like it being the only piece of metal on the dash, however the location is perfect.

Forgive the vinyl, it's not holding up as well as I'd would have liked, I may steal Yoshi's idea and stickerbomb it.

What brand/model bass knob is that?

I installed a somewhat similar looking bass knob from Scosche in my E' on the right side of the shifter on that same panel, well close to the same panel, as I swapped mine out for an SC trim panel. I could post a picture of the knob and panel if you'd like to see it.
