Thanks. I am still working out the finer points on fitment, but the function is terrific. They are 92-97 (E36) 3-series units from headlightwarehouse.com Ask for Kelly, as I recall. There service and price has made me a big fan.
As for the project, it would look more OEM if you used the clear GTS headlight covers and eliminated the standard lenses from the units. I am resisting that and trying to go without removing them. I like the cold air intake I get between the bumper and the lights. To fit them, you have a myriad of choices. I chose to lose the mounts that come on the lights, and make my own metal bracketry coming off the radiator support (in some of the same holes used by the stock lights). Remember, you will have to cut up your headlight mounts (or buy some donors from a wrecking yard) so you can mount your grill and parking lights.
I decided to run separate relays for each light, so I would, not only, get maximum voltage, but would protect my stock harness, especially if I decide to go with higher wattage bulbs. To ensure that I was getting maximum voltage from the source, I chose to take my 12v directly off the 12v post on the alternator. Believe it, or not, you could pick up as much as .5v by doing this. If you don´t believe me, get a good voltmeter and check voltage at idle at the alternator, then at the battery. You might be surprised.
To make sure I didn´t bite off more than I could chew, I did this one side at a time. That way, if I wasn´t satisified with the end result, I didn´t waste the entire dollar amount on an unsuccessful project. Glad to say that I am thrilled. These, in combination with my Camaro high beam driving lights (65watts), have me turning night into day.
Just thought I would mention tonight´s car project...Miata suspension mods. Two weeks ago we put an exhaust and bumped the timing on a ´93 Miata. Tonight, that same Miata will receive new Flyin´ Miata sway bars. If all goes well, this weekend will have me slappin´ the rest of the Stage 2 suspension kit on said Miata -- KYB AGX´s, Flyin´ Miata springs, and upper and lower supports, front and rear.
DAMN, I LOVE CAR PROJECTIN´ !!!!
