I'm not sure quite yet, planning is still in the infantile stages. but since we've got festers in MA,CT,RI,NY. I'd probably try to figure out something were the distance driven is nearly equal for everyone. That and local attractions are a consideration, bimmers on the beach? yeah... i liked that idea too.

I'll be back in the states this month, I'll some vacation time in march, but the 328 will be at "work in progress" stage during that time, and then June, I'll be a civilian again and back firmly planted in the east coast.

sigh.. full sound, speakers, sub, amp, head unit, needs to go to Turner in Amesbury for the cam install, then ive got to pull the old catback off and put the new UUC one on. (cat back for sale) and install the headers. buy new rear tires, roll the fenders so they fit. install sparcos harness and 4 point cage(for harness mounting)... remove the DEPOs and install the DJ autos. have the front bumper painted. and thats all i can think of right now.

not too sure of the brand. its generic. it's not really loud, has a real good tone though, and under acceleration has a nice throaty tone. at idle it's no louder than stock. it doesn't drone either!

i bought it from Matt.

Installed clear corners and glass fogs. Nothing easier than making a corner light line up with broke tabs.

I dig the look more. Might be sticking with clear instead of yellow.

Ghetto:One amber bulb, one clear. Neither fog light wired(no bulbs). Only have wiring for driver side anyways.

Yea I might darken them just a little though. The headlights have black behind the glass and it makes the fogs stick out a little too much.

DJautos? Details?

Yep, DJ's with 50w 6000k and LED angel eyes, plus laminx... (not so sure about the AE's, but they are used and come with)

I may want to swap to 4300K though

That's what I want. 55w with 6000. I'm not into the blue lights thing which my car has a hint of. I only got 35w too.

Be careful with those durbale plastic pieces that hold the corners in. Nearly impossible to break

They are only about a year old, so all the tabs are ok. What do you have in yours now?

Buying them used??

I don't know the bulbs actually. I'd guess 6000. Theyre depos with 35w ballasts. and thinline angel eyes.

I'll be honest, I thought I'd dig the angel eyes way more thhan I actually do.

Yeah used. I had the thin-lines on my old car, and frankly they were pretty unimpressive. I'm not sure if i'll keep the new ones. They look like orion v2's
