    500 mile break-in period? Didn't know there was one... sheesh. I guess that'll be covered considering the drive from your house to mine is 430 miles. lol
    The rest is chump change... I drive that in a couple of days.

    The mist of ideas filled the room as the reality of mods drew closer and closer, the financial burdens of nurturing slowly melting away. The mods beckoned, and soon I would be powerless to resist...

    My first "mod" is going to be brand new headlight lenses and either yellow or clear Lamin-X. I will probably also swap out the fog light surround trim from the chipped Imola to the stock black plastic ones.

    I may swap the order of operations with an exhaust, which I yearn for more strongly than any cosmetics.

    Okay...Here's what I think:

    • The Yellow High beam bowls definitely look bad ass at all times.


    • I think you should keep the AEs as is...I believe the x5 and facelift e39s OEM AEs, remain on when the the Low beams are on as well as when the high beams are on.


    • If you do decide to do yellow Lamin-X on the lenses I would leave the Amber corners and delete the AEs and no yellow bowls (obviously)...So retro! And with the Imolarot, I think it would be quite delicious. But I can only picture this in my mind, I need to see it to believe it.


    • Xenons should be 5000k and properly leveled to ensure the yellow lenses don't limit any night time vision and that they aren't any other odd mixture of the light temperature blending through the yellow filter.

    Can't wait to see where this goes!

    The yellow highbeam bowls is another option I forgot to add.
    I want to keep the AE's at all costs, which is why I'm trying to figure out how it's going to look. I don't want to get stopped by the 5-0, so the yellow bowls seems more likely than an entire yellow Lamin-X cover so that getting stopped doesn't happen.

    Perhaps an easier way to achieve this is by just fitting a yellow bulb in the highbeams, which will give it the yellow look.

    Yes, ZKW's. Lighting is down the road, FX-R retro. Don't drive in the dark enough for it to be a priority.

    Revised recommendations for lighting:

    • Headlights would optimally be 5000k Bi-Xenon FX-Rs
    • Yellow painted highs w/ white H7s
    • Keep the AEs intact
    • OEM clear corners and side markers
