It is amazing how much satisfaction you get out of such simple fixes.

I finally got the right bulb and installed it into headlamp switch.

I'm gonna do mine once I get the bulb, local auto store only has one with way too high of a voltage. I also need the bulb(s) for the clock part of the OBC, which I can't find on PP, anyone wanna help?

Thanks Frank, but I just bought it from Pelican Parts, I need OBC bulbs as well, and it's less than $10 shipped.

I can't wait for that car..
My only scenarios are a clean E30 or keeping my car.

I'm on the fence.. My buddy used to have a alpine '91 318is 5spd with ground control c/o's, camber plates, and mint interior.. he got rear ended and ****ed up the frame

It was easily the best feeling car I've ever driven

I started changing my guibo out and I can't get the last three bolts out of the damn thing. Its late too, I'm tired also, so tomorrow I'll hit it with an impact to see if that takes care of things. Not to mention I found I need to replace a few other things too.

Make sure you check/replace your center carrier bearing when you do the guibo too. They tend to wear out together

I got my 55w HIDs in yesterday and I also have HID highs courtesy of Lou

But all I did today was wipe all the snow off my car and pull it in the garage and turn on the torpedo heater to dry it up
