    anandoc's 330i maintenance & mods thread

    I bought this car (my first BMW) in April 2014 in Ottawa, Canada with around 127,000 KMs on it.

    Thank you! The FX-R 3.0 made a HUGE difference compared to the burnt out ZKWs. I love the sharp cut-off and the wide beam pattern. I am still running on the original 13 year old bulbs so I am sure if I replace the bulbs I will get even better light output.
