I've done it before on other cars, but these are pretty damn expensive headlights so I'd be scared to do it. There are a few people that did it on the forums and it seems like they were saying it's a PITA and a lot harder than your average Honda/Acura/Subie, ect. I'd rather pay the $300 and get it done right, from someone that does it everyday, personally...

What if i told you guys i knew where to find alot of spare sets of bmw headlights, for pretty cheap. That way your car wont have alot of downtime when you send in your own headlights for the angel eyes. How much is this information worth to you lol?

Weird, I updated this morning and the car feels smoother. I haven't made any hard passes to see how it feels on the top-end but I can now spin in 2nd almost at-will (on PZeros).

We should probably set up a day at the track sometime soon. I'm always down for some racing, but it would be hard getting everyone to drive down to Mexico together
