Your car has to be coded to turn that feature on ie...GT1 SSS,Autologic,INPA etc. It codes the car to run the high beams at 40% illumination

Alignment and wheel balancing post suspension refresh from yesterday. I've gotta say, the car handles much, much better now. Good investment.

Also gave it a much needed bath.

I guess the term I should have used is 'euro city lights'. It's a small 5W bulb that lights the high beam bowls through a small hole.

Same here, that is why I was looking for replacement tips.
Stopping by home depot on my way home. lol.
They have 3m 0000 steel wool, I checked. It also says glass cleaner, so I will try it on my windshield as well. It is heavily pitted.
This weekend is the scrubbing time, I wonder how they looked when new before 10 years.
If I had access to a lift I'd scrub the whole under body. lol.

Possibly close enough to see the tail pipes? Lol. I'd love to see my car back when it was new.

Oh sorry then. That sounds like a little project, looks like something cool though. Good luck

It shouldn't be too big of a project since it's all OEM. The headlight housings have the sockets, and I bought the bulb holders so I just need to figure out what wires to run where.

Hopefully a European member can chime in with the correct info!!

Pin 44 = Right
Pin 45 = Left

Car has to be coded to make those pins live.

Mobil 1 0W-40 Oil change
New Dayco A/C Serpentine Belt
Painstakingly long car wash (Some sort of tree sap was ALL over it) Had to scrub it off with some Meguiar's Gold Class and a Micro Fiber sponge.

I'm hoping to do more maintenance to it as time goes by. For preventative measures.
