Crazy bright. Makes me sad cause it illuminates all the dust on my trunk . Never noticed that with the halogen lights lol.

And will do. I'll post a pic tomorrow. Now need to find a red sharpie for the job.

If you look at your cluster, the needles come white from the factory. Used a red sharpie to make the red.

New Philips Ultinon D2S bulbs
20 and 25 mm H&S spacers


Now I just need to stop being lazy and get it all installed!
Just wanted to give some feedback on the LED reverse bulbs I mentioned above, they are the business! Totally puts to shame the previous, 24 SMT LED bulbs I had in there, I can actually see behind my car when I back up now. HIGHLY recommended.

Got my Umnitza csl reps and I have to hand it to them great quality for the price. Also recieved my Pirelli PZero M+S tires from tire rack! I want to get the BMW Performance BBK, BMW Performance SSK, and led plate lights but dont want to spend another 1300 dollars.

Leaned on my glovebox a little too hard when I was getting something out of it and broke off this teeny tiny little pin.

http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...38&hg=51&fg=30

It's part #16. It breaks with not much force, so if you ever do this, don't freak out. It's $0.48, and the catch that holds it is a buck fifty

Which did you get 1156 or 1157? And what kind of lens? Spot or Wide Angle?
