Looks great!! Can you adjust those with out taking off the wheels? I think the KWs you have to take the wheels off.

the warning message may have to do with the bulbs that you put in the angel eyes.

Looks great.. So how does the ride feel with the coils? How did you know they were going to work with the Xi?

they have a specific kit for xi.

as for the feel, haven't really pushed hard on it yet... as i said there is still a problem with the height adjuster... getting it checked again tomorrow.

Yup, those are known to throw a error code once you turn on your xenons. No one really knows why. Sucks because the Luminics are probably the brightest bulbs for our DRLs but they throw an error.

Oh and just so you dont go trying to find another different bulb that wont throw a error, dont use PIAA's H8 either. Does the same thing.
