Ruddigger, not to be redundant (I've been around the forum and taken a look at a ton of threads regarding the mars headlights), but have you had any further problems with them after you replaced the faulty set? And I've read the output is crap, is it worse than the oem halogens? Thanks and the build looks amazing!

Yep, I've been thru 2 sets of their headlights and 2 of their tails. No errors on the latest set, but some of the turn signal LEDs have failed at both ends.

I've been looking all over for these headlight and so far i like it a lot, the best so far. The only thing that is holding me up beside the price lol is that you stated the some LED and some problems with condensation which i think i can get them fix with just add more sealant before set them up but what about the LED ? how did you fix that?

I didn't. They just started failing again the other night. The angel eyes are badass, but everything else about them suck. I wouldnt recommend them.

That stinks. Time for FX-R projectors and custom LEDs. They look purdy.

You should keep your stockies and modify them. Add some raptors and projectors.

Today I turned over 55,000 miles and I finally installed the M3 control arms with my friends help. Steering feels crazy, like the car just wants to turn in. I'm going to get it aligned today and see how it feels afterwards.

Yeah, same with me. It vibrated like crazy before alignment. You'll love the m3 control arms after alignment! Turning is much more responsive now. You should check out BavX LS3 angel eyes. I had mine done in LA and it came out amazing. I took my stock headlights to have them done I must say.. The results are amazing and really transformed the car.

Those do look pretty good. I plan on getting my stock lights modified at some point, but I have other things I want to concentrate on first. These shitty chinese lights are good enough for now.

Thanks for your review on the arms as well. I'm waiting for the alignment shop to open now.

I installed the same set of control arms on my E91 when I did my ST Coils. The car was a mess to drive until after the alignment. I had to wait a week for the coils to settle...but man, once it was aligned it was a lot of fun. Your wagon is great man.

Cheers!

Thanks bro, I can't imagine driving like this for a week, I know the toe is all over the place. I just left the tire/alignment shop, but I didn't get an alignment. I bought new tires instead, lol. 255/40/17 Sumitomo HTR Z III. They should be in this afternoon, then I'll get the new tires installed, lower my front coilovers about 1/4", and get the alignment done.

Anybody want a set of 245/40's with like 800 miles on them?

Nice man! You have STs if I recall. Is the rear adjuster on the top of the bottom of the spring?

Thank you for the input. I have a question, what air ducts are you using for your 1M bumper and did it require any modifications for the air ducts to fit?

Theyre the real 1M ducts. They dont fit perfectly, but you can see how I mounted them in my previous posts. Only difference is instead of the bracket going to the fender liner we changed it with a new bracket going to the inner support on the bumper itself.

Got the 255's on and the alignment done. It feels so good now, and it looks pretty good too. Gonna take a run thru the canyons Saturday and come back with a better report.
