The next time this gets updated can you mention that this only applies to the cars with automatic transmission? Would have saved me some time today.

OP, you have a big mistake in your post:
"Sedans require retrofit with hid projectors to eliminate glare. Coupes come with xenon
projectors already." This is not true. Coupes DO NOT have xenon projectors. They have halogen projectors which are not designed to the arc and focal point of a xenon bulb. They do hand HID well, but they ARE NOT xenon projectors. It is illegal to put HID in halogen housings.
