    I did an LED lowbeam retrofit on sunday. I don't know how light output compares to HIDs, but I don't really care as long as they last longer. Was kind of a bitch to get them installed, had to remove and grind down the heat sink, then assemble again after the bulb and cap went on. 10/10 would not recommend.

    Also have my 245's installed on the rear and I think I might get away without rubbing terribly if I raise the rear another 3/4".

      Has anyone ever tried cotton candy grapes? I can't seem to find any but I want them.

      Northern, are you using stock projector housings?

      Also what do you guys think about Porsche Twists on E30?

        I try to eat an apple every day if I can. I definitely eat a lot of fruit and recommend it.

        The Twists are too big and modern for an E30...

          Yeah I have Depo smileys, ~9 years old at this point. The high beam buckets are rusted inside and out and the low beams have seen half a dozen awful HID iterations.


          I'm not a fan of Twists on an E30. I think 18's are too big, and iirc they have a horrible offset for an e30 so they need a monstrously thick adapter/spacer.
          I don't mind the looks really

            Yeah, 18s are too big IMO..

            16s look too good on e30s. That's the only size rim I'd put on an e30..

              I've had them, they're pretty good. I much prefer raisins to fresh grapes in most cases. As for those wheels, they look horrendous. Far too large, styling is completely out of place.

                  If you were in charge of the update, the forum would be bright orange instead of white.

                      Having a hard time getting used to this new layout...

                      Total "get off my lawn" thing happening here.

                        Thanks for the input everyone! They're 17s and they came with 215/50/17s on them which are a little too big, I think that with different tires and a fender roll I could lower it and they might fit better but who knows. I bought them for $150 as a solution to ZF gearing. They just need to work until I finish rebuilding my CSIs (unfortunately those are 15s). I had some Konig Heliums (also 15s) on before as a lightweight track wheel but even with a 2.93, highways were rough. Usually that's not something I care about, but with a dyno session 2hrs away next week and H20i coming up I figured giving 17s a try.

                        Not gonna lie, I like the new layout. There was nothing wrong with the old layout, but this is nice too.

                          I had a friend with a MK6 GTi with twists and they looked great, not a fan on the E30.

                          The new layout isn't bad, it's just the colors are very high contrast.

                          Also, I'm old and don't like change.

                            Yeah, At least when I'm done with these I can pawn them off on some VW kid.

                            I've seen questions about a night mode. I could get behind that.

                              I honestly cannot stand the white background. It's so hard to look at without straining my balls..
