Tightened my exhaust bolts. Still have a leak between the exhaust and headers. Should be fixed when the new gaskets arrive. I also installed aluminum pedals.

I actually just ordered these same LED eagle eyes for my 330ci they should be in, in about a week or so. Was it just as simple as unscrewing the OEM tail lights and screwing in the new ones? I was worried I might have some issues with the LED lights not being compatible with my non LED OEM's or some stupid thing like that. I'm just curious, could you let me know if you ran into any trouble or any problems

Electrically they were plug-n-play, my car is also non-LED one and there are no bulb-out-error on the dash. Cosmetically they also look great. However I had a small issue fitting right center piece in, the backplate didn't want to hold it. I had to use a file to shave same plastic off (very small amount though).

The tail lights are a super easy plug and play. Look great, but the back side in the trunk didn't fit perfect for me.

Oil change and installed a Dr Vanos replacement unit. Car threw a code after I started it without the MAF connected but I lent my code reader to a friend so will have to retrieve that tomorrow and figure out what is what. I still feel the car is down on power and has a lumpy idle so I may change out the cam position sensor. Tomorrow I'm helping a buddy replace his flex disc on his Z3M (fun little car) and the CDV is history and I'm putting fresh pads and discs all round. I've had mostly new or company cars over the last ten or so years so my DIY skills are very rusty. However I'm really enjoying life with my 200k xi, it is such a nice car to work on compared to some that I've had and I'm still impressed about how tight it still feels after so many miles.

I ordered my smoked LED Eagle Eye tail lights from Bimmian.com Where did you get LEDs with the fitment issues?
