Anytime works for me... anyone chime in?
Does anybody have a video camera? I have a digicam that records video but was looking for better quality. I do video editing and could make a cool STL video to post on youtube.

Wow I should have looked here a long time ago.

Do you all do your own modding or do you have a shop that you prefer for lighting mods? I am looking for some assistance. Thanks

^ Too bad you missed it. I do most of my modding. I have a shop that does some other custom work but I do most of it.

We had a good start with that meet yesterday. Definitely some nice rides and good people! We need to do this again. I will be posting pics on the thread BihStL started.

Pat.

looks like it was a good meet

I'll try to make it out to the next one

Anybody want:
- BN CF steering column cover from EAS
- BN CF interior trim for sedans from EAS
- CF door sills for sedans from euro-spec
?

I already sold my VCSL console, suede ebrake boot, Rad engine cover and front strut bar + rear strut bar. I'm keeping everything else for now I have to replace the things I sold as well with new things lol

I bought the umnitza e90 projectors for my 328xi. Not a bad looking headlight, but 3 of my four angels are not working!

I installed them myself which was a head ache in itself bc of the directions. But I have since received replacement rings. I just am a little leary of taking it all apart again and then doing the 'baking' of the headlights to fix them. Then again I could just need some resoldering to fix it, but my electrical skills in that department are lacking. I'm just ready for it to look right.

Know anyone for hire?

ive baked a lot of headlights and in my experiance no matter how good you get at it your always gonna run the risk of getting moister inside of them.....so if you can fix them without baking i highly recommend doing it but once you mess with the factory glue its never the same....

but as far as mods i do most of mine myself and if i need help my bro is a mechanic so i get to use all his tools

That's what I have been afraid of. I have described my dilema in posts like this:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=143463

But now I am stuck. Jlevis has sent replacement rings. I either need someone take a look at the connections to see if it needs re-soldered or take the headlights apart/bake, replace and reassemble.

I am open to suggestions and offers.
