    i was bored and it was cold out so i said i'd have a go at tinting my front lights, also painted the chrome rings black as it looked kinda odd with them standard.

    if you can get to 6500rpm, nobody can hear your tappets.

    I couldnt get satin black so had to settle for matte.
    It came out alright so it will do for now.

    Had bc in the past and was approached to become a dealer for these.
    So far they seem great, will give them a little more time before i make a final verdict on if they are worth the money

    Lights came out great. Were the coilovers expensive?

    Edit: Just priced them up there. Free postage from Australia @ 1,249 Aus dollars = euro 857.00. Big investment but they are rebuild-able so should last forever really.

    Mine were a fair bit less than that
    Also those ones for 857 would be the street version, mine are the racing version.

    and you havent accounted for import duty and vat when importing from Oz.


    Dont talk to me about the lights. Seems the boys in blue here are not a fan of the french look lol

    Those of you with good eyes may have noticed my touring is now sporting an m3 front bumper, soon to be a full m3 kit

    Yea, well one can dream. I'd love a road set, any decent adjustable coilover kit would be great. My car often feels like the caravan on that Father Ted episode since I did a budget lowering.

    Regarding the French style headlight tint; I think that if your high beam is left clear they can't really say anything.

    I'm an old school myself and not too interested in the e30 body kits or spoilers. That said some custom kits look well on some cars.

    I had joms before these so the difference is night and day.

    Im sure you could argue with a guard about the legality of the lights but the slovak police simply wont entertain it.

    The m3 kit was kindof a "needs must" stituation after an incident in the snow during winter left the rear quarter in a bit of a state

    37mm is the answer! Debating over universal flex rad hose or cutting and joining.
