For sure, I am a pretty big fan of them. They look stunning at night, just need to find some fogs that match them. Gone through 3 sets of fog bulbs and still no joy.

I will hopefully be at German Auto Bash this year if things work out as planned, Timmayfest is up in the air for right now. Going through a rough time with work right now so pretty much stopped any extra spending/activities until things level out.

That's cool... hopefully you can make it to Timmayfest since it's really close to you. If not, maybe we can meet up next time I'm down there.

I'm in Pataskala. Saw another black E92 carving up York road Friday. Had an exhaust for sure.

Do any of you Columbus folks have the stock AE bulbs I could use for a week or two? Car is going into service Wednesday and I don't want to hear them complain about the LED modules for the LUX AEs.
My car is a pre-lci E92 with adaptive Xenons.

Yeah that wasnt me, I do know of a guy who lives on the north side of town that has a blacked out E92. If it had a greenish tint to the halos it was most likely him.

JaSSoN

The Halo's and the Fogs both use an H8 bulb, that being said I have a few spares I can let you use since I was swapping back and forth trying to find one I liked.

Chewy

I have 2 siblings that live up in Cleveland, if I am up visiting them one of these days I'll send you a PM on here.

hehe... I'm thinking about going with the cheaper route Dave. Basically upgrade all my rotors to probably slotted, and better brake pads, but stay with the 330i sizes. That way I can save some money and not worry about whether this or that will fit my 17" winter wheels.

Might have to do a Bimmer party, which I am totally down for. At some point I will want to do brakes on mine as well once she is paid off. I'll supply the beer!

How did those bulbs work out for you?

Got in an accident today. The guy to the left of me at a red light decided to turn right without looking and basically ripped the front corner of my bumper off along with the headlight.

Can anyone recommend a repair shop near Cleveland?

Here's the damage once I ripped out all the messed up bits and jammed the bumper back in place. Luckily there seems to be no damage to my wheel so she still drives fine minus a headlight and half a grill.

ugh, that sucks. Gotta love Cleveland drivers. That right from the middle or left lane is a daily occurrence eastbound on Carnegie, and it really pisses me off. Not only is it illegal, but extremely dangerous.

Don't take it to Terry's Northcoast Auto. On the other hand, I would recommend the body shop at Central Cadillac. They did a really good job on my car when some chick rear-ended me last year when the "sun blinded her". Sadly, I could relate, since the sun comes out as often as a full moon.

These accidents could be avoided if people would pay attention while driving. I'm just looking forward for when I can move back east in August.

I've been checking out this thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=504040 and if the shop is flexible a front LCI conversion (minus the headlights) is looking kinda attractive at around 1k in additional parts.

I'm leaving in a minute to get a quote from the Cadillac dealer. Insurance is denying liability because the other guy was at the light first ಠ_ಠ. It looks like I will be paying out of pocket so I might as well go for the conversion if the shop is alright with it.

If anyone knows where I can find a used pre-LCI Xenon drivers side headlight it would be much appreciated.

Those parts came out to ~$1700. When in include paint and install, you are probably looking at $2500+.

As far as the headlight... junkyard? eBay? post in the appropriate private, for-sale section as a new WTB thread? New ones would be easier to find, but they are probably really expensive.

Just got back from the shop and they were really accommodating. They will let me supply whatever parts I want so it looks like it is a go for the conversion. They also quoted me $47 an hour for labor which seems like a steal to me.

I'm planning on going to the C&C meets this summer, the shop needs 3 days to do the work once I get the parts so I should be ready for the meets starting in May.

Well really hope that this negative turns into a positive for you. I switched over to my cavalier for the winter and that week someone hit it. Pretty happy that they hit the cavalier and not the baby. I would probably be posting this from jail... haha
