Seth i'll show u them once i get them if you were curious at all. Should be shipped here tmrw. And..for the side reflectors has ne1 found an ez way to rip them off? Would goo gone work pretty good? Haven't done the install but looked at diy, not too hard. I just dont wanna be prying shit, when the side is already flimsy. And i usually break shit when doing installs.
no big deal bro

Vu if you want to take your side reflectors off really easy, use a heat gun and warm up the back and pry it off. Makes it easier to remove without breaking the lens itself. Then use goo gone to clean up all excess adhesive.

No worries, still debating on whether I want to throw it in now or wait until the meet and do it when I do Vu's too.

It's ok, I'm busy Saturday too. Got to take my wheels to Rockford lol. I'll let you know though when I decide to install it.

I personally would like to wait that long, BUT the buyer can't. I'm afraid if I don't sell now, it'll be harder later.

you should tell him if you're delivering half way he can pay you $50 bucks or else come up here, its not that much further.


If you really need me to I'll take um on the 19th on my 1st trip. He'd have to pick them up either that night or after paintballing on the 20th.

well..after pedros. I couldn't sleep, so got my oss lights back on the car and the grills. Too damn late to grab a heat gun/dryer to heat up the reflectors. Gotta admit the leds look pimp, only gripe is...the glueing job of the headlights together looks terrible. But im prolly just being anal, cus no one is able to see the glue unless u open the hood.

vu if you want info on the EC flash why didn't you just ask?

PM J BONE, he's had it on his car for almost a year now (none of us have the hand held flashing unit though. I plan to get that though when I get outta this N52).

I ordered 1 mod for the year so you'll have to help me install them when they get here Noel. I didn't want to feel left out at the meet.

I'm trying to setup a time with Kelly Moss to get my FMIC installed the day I get back. Hopefully they can fit me in. Seth, did some research and I think the 275 will be ok. At least until I drop it. Can't wait to get new shoes...hey does anyone know where to get tires mounted without them fucking anything up? I don't want my new wheels scratched. You guys trust Zimbrick?

i've been told by several sources, including WSTO that 275 on an e92 can easily cause a problem without rolling. You hit a big bump and bottom out, not just on a dropped car, and your rubbing... imagine that on the highway at 80mph, not fun. I just suggest you roll um to be safe, no harm in that and its fairly inexpensive... but its your ride so whatever.

I would not go to Zimbrick, why give those aholes the business? Tires Plus will charge you $100 to do it on 19's but they've always been good with my rims, no scratching or anything. You could always try Monona Tire, I hear good things about them. Or you can try Discount Tire over in Middleton next to Biaggi's.

I also know there is a Tire Rack recommended installer at 2583 University Ave, just don't know what/who that is, think it might be the Import Auto Clinic I've seen over there maybe?
