If you want to get junkyard parts remember one thing, if it was wrecked you know it was running/driving. You may not know how well, but it was.

Forgive my ignorance, but I never learned... What is an LKM in universal terms, as in is it a ballast, meaning we have stock HID's? If not, why do they make a difference?

LKM controls lights. No individual relays, only LKM box.

Nixen tires as well. I would not lower her any further unless you plan on cambering her you will hate the cornering and ride. I have a buddy who did the same thing and regrets it every day he is running gts mk1 rims 19inch.

Euro H1s? Don't you mean projector fog lights? They were in the US as well.

I think ZH just has halogens for his fogs. Xenons for his lows.
