Re: M3 headlights (G60ING)

yeah...you take the headlights and switch them. someone in the corrado forum just did them. he said he took the right light and put it on the left side etc. it saved him the time of cutting and making brackets and stuff. i cant remember who it was but it might have been renzo. (bluenrg)

Re: M3 headlights (BLUE NRG)

When I switched mine they pointed inward /\ after some mod they now face straight ahead. I have pics but no means to post them.

Re: M3 headlights (BLUE NRG)

I talked to a guy at the show who installed M3 headlights in his car. You have to change the hood pins and poop like that. Supposedly its a pain in the ass, and if you dont have a blk or drk green car it looks sorta dumb, it stands out too much as not being stock. Otherwise there wicked

Re: M3 headlights (BLUE NRG)

what always gets left out is a couple things. if you just bolt the bmw's in there are gaps on the sides that look like crap. the light beems also cross eachother about 10-15 ft in front of the car. to do it right you need to do a complete custom job. when it comes down to it all you end up keeping it the lens and reflector, the rest is useless....

Re: M3 headlights (Corrado_Club)

I'm not sure what year they are, I got them off ebay for $50 bucks. I just hacked the crap out of the lights. As for the gaps, yep kinda weak, but I don't mind it on the passenger side it allows fresh cold air right onto the intake. I think it was Niels that orig did his like that. As for the drivers side I might leave it like that or figure somethig to fill it.
