Nope, 35W halogens. The bulbs I have there now are 55W and much brighter.

Getting HID fogs on Monday.

Is it true that the colour changes when a 55W ballast is used? What I mean is, would an 8000K look like a 6000K with the higher wattage ballast?

Yes, I just bought a DDM HID kit for my X5. I got the 55W 8000k, looks 6000K when lit.

1. Thanks Jake-O, for the tape. I definitely needed two feet, as the first foot was used for training.
2. What I couldn't do in one hour, my GF did in 15 min: apply the tape bubble-free.
3. The car looks cleaner, and better, IHMO.
4. No I'm not trying to fool anybody to thinking my car is a ZHP, because the general population doesn't know doesn't care, and the enthusiasts can tell that ZHP's didn't come on preface lifters, especially without the M-tech II front bumper.

So here's the trunk lid.


DIY here.

Was it black before? Mine has always been the same color as the car and i dont have a ZHP. Perhaps because i have a 328 and you have a 325

Yeah, 328's and 330's have the same color as the body(i posted this on my blog), but I was referring to the astute observer which would notice my zhp wheels. hence the "I'm not trying to pass it as a ZHP" apologia.
