Unreliable projectors - any ideas?

I have an '05 sedan that I bought CPO a couple of years ago. The dealer advertised it as having Xenons, which it didn't, so the dealer agreed to install them. I was told they would use oem parts,...

Mine does it too, apparently at random. They always go off eventually (usually within a couple of minutes), so I quit worrying about it. It does sometimes help to turn the ignition key back on and...

I have constantly had the same problem, but I think mine are depo, not oem. I've had them fixed, replaced, adjusted, etc over and over. The dealer doesn't seem to have a clue. Now they don't want...

One possibility - I recently had a similar experience on my 05 sedan. The front speakers sounded weak, like the tweeters were gone, but what the dealer diagnosed was that the receiver (the in-dash...

Love the car. Are your TA rings painted or the EAS decals? I have the same wheels with the EAS TA decals, but I'm not satisfied with the way they turned out (wrinkles due to haste).

Check the VMR wheel gallery thread. There's a sapphire black on gunmetal pic on p. 23 of the thread. It looks good to me.

235/35 would be safe all around. 245/30 or 245/35 would work in the rear on a vert, but it would probably cause problems in front with that offset.

I've bought body parts from Tischer BMW (getbmwparts.com) online, and they were cheaper than the local dealers.

Personally, I'm not as fond of those wheels as I am of most, but that's just my opinion. On that blue, I'd be more inclined to go with silver or hyperblack rather than full black. If it were me, I...

European Auto Source is the only place to get the black VB3's. I got a staggered wheel/tire set there. Those are Dunlop Direezas, 235/40R18 front and 255/35R18 rear.

If you currently have 275's, the 285's should fit the M3 rims. The only potential problem would be rubbing, which depends on offset.

You can fit a 255 on a 9" rim. The question is how much offset your rims have. If they are 45 offset you'll be fine. If the offset is lower than that, you may have issues with 255's.

I have 235/40R18 on the front of my 325i, running on 8.5" rims with 40 offset, no problems. I'm not lowered, though.

I put the matte black VB3's on mine, with the EAS time attack rings, but I have AW (pics on VMR wheel thread). I vote for black on black. There's a good pic of black on black on the VMR thread.
