Anyone else have some fun in the snow yesterday? I did surprisingly well with my new snow tires. Getting back up the hill to Mt. Adams was a little sketchy, but I made it without problems. Here is a pic of the aftermath.

I did and took a small video but I probably won't post it. Hard to get enough speed and move constantly. Or I haven't found the throttle sweet spot plus correct gear. My favorite part of my video is the very beginning when you hear the exhaust/turbo spool when the car starts to slowly move.

It all depends on what kind of modifications you want done to your headlights. The price can vary.

I will be selling mine soon. OSS has them right now and are making a few changes/additions
Well they look sharp! I just started my rear LCI conversion, but if the timing is right I might want to take those bad boys off your hands. I just emailed OSS last night for a rough pricing/options sheet for my Bi-Xenon AHLs, but ive heard they can take a while to respond!

Yeah - OSS is HORRIBLE to deal with in terms of communication. Just to give you an idea, Ive been dealing with Luis from OSS for almost a full year now from my first point of contact. Like a 6 month waiting list, then I was finally able to ship him my headlights, he had it for 6 weeks waiting on parts and getting the work done - meanwhile my car was in pieces (daily driver) and I didnt have an extra set of headlights to put back on the car. I went with RGB rings, and literally not even a month later, RED stopped working. So I had to wait another 2 months to even send them back to him. I was a prototype install (first prelci sedan to have RGB square halos) - so instead, I'm having him swap in white square halos (these will be trouble-free) and a red demon eye.

So, I intend on getting all of my money back that I have invested in these lights. The perks for the new owner are - no wait time, no down time.

I should be getting my lights back in a week or so. Will keep you posted when I get them back, if you are interested - otherwise, I will be posting in the Classifieds.

yeah definitely interested and let PM with a price and rough idea as to when they might be on the market!
OSS really should expand their operations if they have wait times like that! They are losing out on a ton of money!

I'm located in Toledo. As soon as it starts getting warmer out there are meets at Rocket Hall on Thursday nights. I'm there and there is another guy in an e90. You can follow the group, UT Tuners, on Facebook if you'd like some more info. Besides that there isn't too much happening that I'm aware of.

TV Stand

Any Cleveland area folks in the market for a 70" TV stand? PM me if interested! Pic of what it looks like is below (I couldn't post photos of my actual one for some reason). Purchased for $449 when I first moved here. Looking to get rid of mine. Nothing wrong with it, it's in brand new condition, no marks etc. just need to clear up some space this weekend.

So question for everyone, last I heard German Auto Bash is no longer a thing, Timmmayfest is growing every year, are there any other auto shows in the Columbus area that I am missing? Someone asked me the other day and I seemed to remember one more but couldnt remember what it was.

I'd like to know as well. I never heard of the German Auto Bash...

There is always Import Face Off but that's not really centered toward Euro's

What kind did you order and are you doing the install? I think I will end up ordering downpipes and intercooler here before the summer starts. I'm debating on whether to have the intercooler installed when I get the downpipes installed. I don't think the intercooler install is that bad is it?

I installed both myself on my 335. Downpipes arent difficult, just takes time and helps if you have small hands, as clearance is small and hard to navigate.

Intercooler is very simple.
