Damn Tom. If I end up finding the appropriate E30 M3, I'm blaming the spending on you when my wife asks why the hell I need another car.

It looks like you have the connectors already so you have a head start. (atleast for the lowbeams)

You need to cut the original connnector off and join the right wires to the connectors for the Headlights.

There should be a write up somewhere online. somewhree on R3V should have it.

Sweet lights

Any old ellips that you no longer need for sale?

..............call me. I know lots of lines that you can use on the wife. They eventually fail miserably, but are good in the short term to somehow get to where you need to be

Where's that Jordan guy when you need him. I'll take the abuse if he can at least dish out the info

$220 EUROS + ship and brokerage etc................. I want them too but not sure I can swing the funds for both. These smoked lights would "cosmetically" look awesome on my black E30 M3. But do I really need them................... nope Going to contact him today. If he still has them, I may just get both and flip the rears.............

Looks like I may have this deal buttoned up........... for both fronts and rears. We'll see what happens. If it works out fine and they are in good shape, I can talk to him again about getting other sets if anyone else is interested. Shipping is going to be not too cheap.......

If these are good, will also mean I may sell my US OEM ellipsoids and rear tail lights if anyone is looking for a very good set.

Yeah I've never seen those with the H4 looking attachments for the high beams. The only mod you might have to make is to jump the 30 pins on the high and low beam relays.

They are on the way............. not cheap. Mind you, euro ellipsoid smilies from Abrahams Motorsports in the USA are going for around $450+ USD a pair.
