According to the '04 sales brochure, there wasn't a HID option so @waughoo would be most likely correct on the fact his car probably doesn't have the wiring.
Just got done flipping through the factory brochure. That was pretty fun! Thanks for sharing it @hurddawg .

@waughoo the plan for the new wheels is to find a good set of tires designed more for summer/performance. Iím thinking the Federal Formoza FD2ís because we put a set of those on the charger last summer and they seem to be a really good tire, ride great, really sticky/plenty of traction.
As for color Iím thinking of going with the Mitsubishi X13 Kalapana Black (pic of the car that paid for the 6 attached for color reference) because that color was amazing when it was clean and polished it was a really deep black. I still want to look into powder coating but I have a feeling it would be a bigger bill than Iím willing to take right now with all the other suspension bits I am buying.
As always though Iím open to suggestions, for color or especially tire choice I want something good but I also donít want to spend $6-800 on tires alone.

sooooo today I bought a 2003 Jeep Liberty Sport 3.7 auto 4x4 for $200 USD with 200,421 miles on it that needs some tlc front suspension/hub bearings, A/C compressor, new tires, new fuel pump...new front driveshaft... I am going back tomorrow with a trailer to pick it up.....

my hopes here are to have a good winter car for next winter and something I can drive for a while this summer to park the 6 for some much needed body work.

Dang, I didn't realize that you were going to go black too lol. It will be another 2 years before I'm ready for paint but when I'm ready, it was going to be black. Same for my wife. She wants her Bug white on black for a Nightmare before Christmas theme that she's going for and I'm going Dark red on black for a theme to be announced later

That's a great buy for a vehicle. I've been trying to keep my eye out for a truck on the cheap but haven't really found anything worth my while at this time.

Have you had any luck on finding a subframe for the 6 yet? It's a shame my yard doesn't have more than 1 v6 in it. I'd really like to see what exactly is different between the manual and auto subframe. It shouldn't be much really.

Edit: these are the tires I run in FL all year long. They handle great even in the rain. On dry days, I'm able to take corners at higher speeds than I should be taking them lol. The backs have been on the car for the 4 years that we've had it and the fronts have been changed once. Granted I haven't been able to rotate my tires because the jackass that mounted them got the rotation wrong on one of the tires and it is a hard nope for putting the wrong rotation on the front. The best part of these is the fact that they are about $70 each. Both the bug and the 6 have these and we love them.
