No, you'd be on my ignore list for diminishing standards. It's as simple as that.

My standards aren't diminishing. I've always been of this opinion. You and I agree on many things. You can't judge me by a single opinion about one mod.

Yep OP would just need to drive through Kirkland, in about 6 second he would be pulled over followed by 4 more cop cars. This way the cops can jerk off together while they write him a ticket and waste his time. I wish I was exaggerating but I drive by it everyday to work.

Don't do this to your lights and don't remove your front plate.

Come move to the south east. We still have a bit of freedom down here. Also, blue skies.

I have a feeling that's true, but its only a matter of time before any city's police department starts acting like this. If I could I would love to defund the living **** out of the police in Kirkland.

No, our police are too busy arresting black people for smoking swag to care about your BMW.

Do it bro, it will be super sick with your Highline which is "too quiet" because you only bought the muffler portion.

If you think it's loud you have really sensitive ears.

Hmm I'd like to hear your exhaust sometime. I'm always worried about the car being too loud.

I'm in Shoreline. Shoot me a message and let me know when you'd like to check it out. I plan on installing headers soon.

I drive through Kirkland all the time haha I think I've only seen a couple cops.
Cops have better things to do than to pull someone over for yellow high beam bowls.


I feel like some people don't mess with a certain mod even if there's a really small chance of them getting pulled over..
I guess that's okay and all, but.. I've just never heard of anybody (ever) getting pulled over for tinted/colored lights.. unless it was completely tinted/black.

Just my two cents... Do not put 100w lights in your 55w rated wiring. Even if it will last for short spurts of time, what if you forget about them? If you really want brighter lights, go with 80w, but that's all I'd bump it up to. If you care about brightness, save the money and do a HID conversion for fogs, or put in some Xenon highs.

Something tells me that the OP won't hardly use the high beams if at all...and may even disable the DRL's because what he's going for is the look of the blue reflectivity In the bowls....

But yeah, your right... 100w is a little hot for that location.





Gotta admit, that is a nice look, especially on AW.... Goes great with the roundel

Notice in that photo that the owner didn't go overboard by putting blues in the corners but rather put silver coated bulbs... Really cleanly done.

I never use my high beams.. maybe late at night when I'm on a long & straight road by myself, but that's it.
I have silver coated corner bulbs as well.
My angel eyes are the lights I run in the day.

Just ordered the 55w bulbs.
