There are none.
Please, PLEASE do NOT put xenon/fake xenon bulbs in halogen foxtures! They will blind other drivers and they'll produce less light than standard halogens.

I understand Bekkers makes a retrofit kit, however.

I'm with Nick. Get the real thing or don't do it at all. :thumbdwn:

I know guys, I wish I can get the real thing. It just cost so much for now.

Then save your money for the real thing instead of wasting on the cheap stuff that annoys everyone else.

Don't forget that aftermarkets do not have the auto leveling feature. I would think that that feature makes a big difference in the "blinding other drivers" problem.

Don't buy them for the color. Buy them for the utility. In other words, get the kit that performs best, not looks best.

Anyone know where to buy the kit and what's best?

They cannot be worse than OEM's on Honda's S2000?

Nick, what kind of French Taunter response was that? Why didn't you tell him to go to Fanatics? :tsk:

VtT, Check out e46fanatics.com. I imagine that they may be able to point you in a better direction than this group. The guys over at Fanatics know a lot about cosmetic mods and the best places to get the best stuff.

King Arthur: I am your king!
Woman: Well I didn't vote for you!
King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.
Woman: Well how'd you become king then?
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king!
Dennis: Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!

Actually, I have a different complaint about thread hijacking.

If you actually have something to say on the original subject of a thread, you have a limited window to say it before the thread gets irreparably redirected. So if you weren't on the board at the time a question was originally asked, by the time you read it, it may be too late to answer since no one is still reading it besides the three/four hijackers.

They need their own board or at least promise to only hijack REALLY OT threads.


Alittle ironic. No soup for you.

Do you realize that I could not care less what you have to say?

BTW, anyone who can quote me chapter/verse-style like that really needs more to do.

And when you consider that the post you quoted was prior to the date you registered here, I have to assume that you are yet another regular posting under a pseudonym in order to troll.

Don't change the channel yet, Chris, there's plenty of Python material still left. Like this gem:

Dead collector: Bring out your dead!
Man: Here's one.
Collector: Ninepence
Old Man: I'm not dead!
Collector: What?
Man: Nothing. Here's your ninepence
Old Man: I'm not dead!
Collector: Here. He says he's not dead.
Man: Yes he is.
Old Man: No I'm not!
Collector: He isn't?
Man: Well he will be soon. He's very ill.
Old Man: I'm getting better!
Man: No you're not. You'll be stone dead in a moment.
Collector: Look, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations.
Old Man: I don't want to go on the cart!
Man: Oh don't be such a baby.
Collector: I can't take him.
Old Man: I feel fine!
Man: Oh, do us a favor?
Collector: I can't.
Man: Well can you make it around in a couple of minutes? He won't be long.
Collector: No... I've got to go to the Robinsons. They've lost nine today.
Man: Well when's your next round?
Collector: Thursday.
Old Man: I think I'll go for a walk.
Man: You're not foolin' anyone, you know. Look. Isn't there something you can do?
Old Man: I feel happy! I feel Happy!
(Sound of Old Man being hit in the head with a large club)
Man: Oh, thanks very much.
Collector: Not at all. See you on Thursday.
Man: Right.

In no way was I trying to hijack this thread. (queue sfx: hand washing)

But when in Rome...


King of Swamp Castle: You only killed the bride's father, you know!
Sir Lancelot: Well, I didn't mean to.
King of Swamp Castle: Didn't mean to? You put your sword right through his head!
Sir Lancelot: Oh dear...is he all right?
