I saw some pictures of E30 with yellow bulbs.
Is this available for early E30?
I know I have sealed beam on my 86 E. Is there any yellow sealed beam on the market?

Is there a way to paint regular sealed beam to make them yellow? That would be nice as it would be cheap to do....

you can get H4 conversion lights, that way you can change the bulbs. Also, you can purchase yellow lenses for I believe projector lights only.

I've seen some people take the foglights out of older Mercedes Benz's since some use yellow lights in the same diameter. I don't know offhand what model its from unfortunately, you will have to search through some older threads.

I say H4 conversion + 3000k HIDs = yellow win

You could buy a spray at pacific mall that paints them yellow and doesnt come off.

Do you have the name of that spray???

dont buy spray
go get some yellow lamin-x.
it sticks right on and you could take it off when you get tired of it,
it also helps in preventing rocks and stuff from chipping/scratching your lenses.

I see VW's with Yellow lights, not fussy on the look, but I like Flat black cars :)

Anybody did it with Lamin-X?
I saw that you can have it pre-cut to fit the headlight of a E30. However, I still have sealed beams and I think there are some bumps on the lense.
Anybody has experience with this???

Pictures would be great!

And by the way, I'm not looking to get yellow light, I just want to have that yellow look when the lights are off.

A friend of mine had laminX on his previous e30, The yellow ones looked great, but the smoked ones dimmed the light output a bit.

I dig the yellow lights as well, I'm gonna look into getting some lamin-x

I think if the lamin-x is stretchable enough it can be conformed to the bumps on the sealed beams using a heat gun and maybe some adhesion promoter around the edge of the lens and over the bumps.

i agree on the lamin-x. its a good method of doing the yellow headlights without chipping/ peeling and is easily removed without dropping the bank account lol.
