I love my stealth ambers, got them from khoalty with my clear corners, work like a charm! Hey guys, my lug nuts are a rusty mess, really kills the exterior, anyone have any suggestions for a set of black lugs? I know there are a lot out there but I want quality and am willing to pay for it

I bought OEM lugs from a parting supplier in florida off ebay. $9.99 for a seet of 20.

Paint them black, and there you go.

If you want expensive nice looking ones i'll paint them and mail them to you for $100

Not saying I want expensive ones, just saying I don't want to skimp on quality to not pay a lot. I don't want to paint them I want them to come black

You're half way there. Now you need the corners to match the headlight housing.

Hey guys I noticed that the fan doesn't kick on when I turn on the AC. What fuses should I check? I checked the ones in the glovebox. Is there anywhere else to look?

thanks! I saw a stock m3 at the dealership, and it made me want to go back to the classic oem look.

ps. no excuse for egg yolk effect? stealth amber bulbs are cheap as hell.
i think my front end looks much better now. as for the egg yolks... I like them. I had a set of expensive stealth bulbs from jlevisw, but I gave them to a friend. I used to be into crazy mods, but now I just like OEM.
