    Yeah, I think you have to jump two relay pins to get the lows to stay on when the highs come on.
    Hows the front lip search going?
    I've just got all the mounting hardware and was going to test fit and see if it fits my valence (even though it prob doesn't) If it doesn't, I was going to test fit it to my euro valence, and probably swap all that in after painting etc.

    You can probably tell It's not exactly top of my priority list... I've been a little preoccupied, I've been looking at an uber clean E36 with/for my girlfriend and it looks like we're gonna buy it. I actually really liked how it drove. It's a 328i... so it's got my crankshaft ;D

    What I've just realized I really REALLY need to do is swap that diff in. 1st gear and maybe second are really the only fun gears with my current diff. It's just sad.

    Yes, stock bulbs. The city lights are wired into the parking lights. For now the low beam turns off when the high beam is on but I plan on messing with the relays to run them simultaneously.

    Funny story, when I was first wiring the city lights, I accidentally blew fuse (23 i think) for the dash lights. I didn't know I did this, so I looked for hours with my multimeter testing every wire trying to figure out which wires were for the parking lights. It turned out the first wires I tried were the right ones all along... :oops:

    I don't have one :(

    The smileys are so so so so sooo much better than the sealed beams though. Who knew lights at night could actually help you see??

    That's still an E30 right? Nice setup though. Pretty much exactly like mine haha. Except I have the bimmerheads 274 cam.

    Good luck! It seems my influence is spreading ;)

    Just got the second valve adjustment in. Most exhaust valves actually seemed slighty loose.. it was pretty consistent. I think only one or two intake valves were out of spec. And only one exhaust in spec. Still looks really nice under the valve cover though.

    Pick n pulled some parts off an E34 525i and just got around to installing. I've decided to update to the late model valve cover and finally got a late model fuel rail so my supply and return lines are on the same side. Did the same with this valve cover that I did with the previous one, though the big blocky BMW letters seem to take the sanding and polishing better than the early model one.



    Up next... The smileys
