    I like chrome kidneys, and a pass on the yellow high beams

      yep, skip the yellow, keep em chrome, but I do like the smoked clear turn signals. I might have a set of us hella ellipsoids up for sale cheap, soon. a little pitted but still pretty good. I'll pm you when i dig them out

        Yeah, ping me when you have a chance. I was thinking about getting the Depo ones since I cannot find a decently priced Hella brand but I'll wait a bit and check out the classified on here before jumping the gun.

          I decided to go with Depo Smileys. I got them installed along with the cleared turn signals. It took a bit to get the headlights pointed in a way that I can see and do not blind any cars. It is probably still a little low, but with the new H1 bulbs I can see as good as my M3 or my wife's X3 so I am ok with it as is for now.

          I think they look great, but I may replace the clear lens in front with the white kind on Turner to match the reflectors on the sides.

              that looks great- very tidy! are the front lenses installed? or are they actually clear as in invisible?

              my bad for never getting back to you on the lights, when I dug them out the adjuster sockets were all broken and the adjusters frozen. They are still soaking in Kroil and the sockets are lost on my desk some where. lol

                Looks very clean, where did you get the clear front and side markers?

                  Wow that thing is super clean congrats !!! It's amazing how well the platform handles right ? The first e30 I drove was the one I own now and I couldn't believe how much a 30 year old car handles and drives like a newer car

                      They are both Depo. I got the fronts at ECS and the side markers on eBay cause I couldn't find them anywhere else.

                        No problem man. The depos worked out great so I'm satisfied. The fronts are invisible and I want to swap them for the white ones but I'm having trouble finding some.

                        I saw these on turner, but I don't think it fits my car even though it says on their website. It looks too small width-wise.

                          Yeah, It is a super fun car. I am having a blast daily driving it to work.

                          I think it would be a lot more fun if the steering was a better ratio. Right now I'm getting 4 turns lock to lock and I would like it to be closer to my E93 M3 which is about 2 turns lock to lock. I heard I can do a Z3 rack swap but looking at the videos on youtube makes it seem pretty difficult. I do all the work myself (so far) on the car, but I think it's out of my ability.

                          Does anyone know a shop in socal that can do it?

                            yeah you know I'm assuming you have a airbag car based on the year and year makes it harder I want to do the swap also I just dont want it to ruin the driving expeance but people swear by it sooo.....
