Four year update- Still going strong. I finally gave into temptation and completed a self-installation of the Eibach lift kit. The lift has been a welcome addition on recent trips (a major decrease in belly scratching), though I wouldn't recommend installing it yourself unless you know what you're getting into. Even with the shop manual in hand, it still took the better part of a week with the car on jack stands to complete. As I was already taking the suspension apart though, I also decided to add a pair of Air Lift 2000s to reduce sag when loaded up. A cargo box has been added to the roof rack as well, along with a rear-facing 32 inch light bar. Other recent additions include WeatherTech floor mats and front mud flaps.

Though it was still perfectly fine, the front 20in light bar has finally been removed, and I'm in the process of fabricating a much more elegant mount for a curved 30in light bar in the bumper slot. I haven't had much time to work on the car this summer, but a 3-row compatible, low profile tow bar will also be fitted soon along with the new front light bar!

Glad you removed the front LED bar馃

Are the new brake light street legal?

Great Photos!
About the old namesake of this thread, yes! The front end looks much cleaner without a light-bar-sized protrusion cluttering the lines of the DS.

The rear light bar can't be used legally when moving, as they are yellow/white LEDs (can't display white lights when moving forwards), but they can be configured to stay on constantly or through its varies strobe functions as they are controlled through a remote. I usually use them as a chase light when offroading, rear lighting when camping, or for extra visibility when parked beside a road.

Thanks!
