I did mine, i have 8500K ebay bulbs...they're white, not blue...




it's more white than this, i didn't have my DRL on...these are just parking lights...

to change ur angel eyes light u gotta have small hands..not a lot of room to do so...and fog lights, u gotta remove the lining underneath ur front bumper..

A bunch of us have done E90 light mods. Not sure if AJ (bavarian19) has started fiddling around with his new E92 yet...

On the E90, it was a real PITA...

The E92 is annoying too...my hands were lacerated after i put the bulbs in..

there is no room, and there are sharp objects everywhere..

It's by Euro Designz or something on ebay....

size is H8 make sure it's 35W ...it doesn't throw any weird codes on dash or melt any wires...and it has life time warranty...

it's white at night, so cops won't bug ya for having bluish lights...if u need help installing, let me know...the passenger side sits different than driver side, and could potentially confuse first time installer...

I will definitely hit you up for DIY assistance, and if you've got the ramps maybe an oil change too. I am getting the oil/filter this week, but don't want to have to buy a new set of ramps...maybe the following weekend??

Try and make it in conjunction with Juan's (iatacs19)...for a group thing. The more the merrier for all involved.

Scottz71,

How many miles you got? I was thinking of doing my change @ 1,200miles, but I think I will wait until 3,000miles. Spool said we can all change it in 1 session, if you feel like timing it that way.

I have -23mi from 3,000 exactly...but it's not my daily driver so I don't think it'll pass 3K this weekend. I am game to do a group oil change...just tell me when/where...I am really interested to learn how to do it on this car. I used to on my prelude, but don't do my own anymore with the SUV or my wife's car...set it up!

Looking to sell our home in Ashburn, move farther out towards Wva..where it is quieter and we can get more land...a bigger garage, etc, etc...I am tired of living in a fish bowl.

We're looking for at least 3500 sq ft. 4 bedrooms, at least 3 bay garage, no less than 1 acre...hopefully 2+ acres. We'll probably lean towards new construction w/ all the incentives now, but the real issue is getting our current place sold.

that sounds sweet...but I can never live with the commute into DC. But wow.

What does 400-ish buy you nowadays Anything decent inside the beltway?

Well, I bought a condo here when it was crazy, I paid through the roof.

At the time it was well within my means and 1/2 block to Metro , now I want something bigger, not an estate like Scottz71, but something bigger than my 1 bedroom.

Problem is that anything inside or by the beltway with 3 bedrooms and 2 car garage is at least $600k.

I did check out a community in Alexandria near Van Dorn Metro station brand new development, a nice townhouse was listed for $725k with delivery in early Sept 2007. NV Homes is now discounting those unbuilt units to $550k... So I am worried and don't know what to do yet...

So, I am kind of waiting to see how long it takes for prices to stabilize.

I could never live inside the Beltway...I need peace, quiet, and breatheable air.

I can't afford a house on my own...well i could, but that means i have to sell my car, and my bike, and a couple of kidneys...


I'm waiting for my good friend to finish paying for his student loans, so we can get a house together...

*sigh* i remember when i first moved here, houses cost as much as my car right now...
