Well I finally had some time to work on it.
Started removing intake silencers, not quite yet done, as I need to extend a few vacuum hoses before I can swap the 2.5L Intake hose and remove the secondary airfilter box/silencer.

Installed my mud flaps, they are STI replica's, yes they are vivid green, the wheels will be refinished in Gold in the next few weeks.
Also installed foglights in the stock location, need to wire them and start working on installing the rest...

Looking good

This is the exact setup I intend on getting: stock headlights with 4300k HID's (already installed), Hella 500FF fog lights with 55W 4300k HID's with the parking light relay disabled, and Hella 500FF driving lights with 55W or 80W halogen bulbs, wired up to high beam stalk, with the fog light relay disabled so I can run all six lights at once.

Yes(it's a Suby thing, would you like the URL to the instructions?),

Yes,
OK.

PS, I still hate green, radical or otherwise, hence why my M5 is BLACK.

These are awesome cars and basically an Impreza WRX underneath. In White they look awesome. Colin McRae had a White one to do the pre race maping (not sure what its called in english).
I would do a manual transmision on it get some STI or even WRX brakes on it and you have a proper weapon there!!!!!!

Pre race mapping = recce

You still need at least a Grp.N setup to do recce so I think. My friend had to sell his BBK to get some Grp.N sanctioned brakes to do recce for an international rally.

Just FYI, you are only allowed 4 forward projecting lamps on at the same time. Not that it really matters as they do not enforce this law but it's good to know.
