I have an e46 M3 style bumper, so the factory e36 fogs don't work for me. The PIAAs are just 4" round lights. They look just like a set of fog lights, but instead of spreading the beam outwards towards the sides, the driving lights focus the light far down the road. Kind of like extra long range high beams.

Sorry guys, no pics at the moment and no digicam right now. Maybe I'll get Dan (325iguy) to snap some shots when he stops by.....

not at the beach on Sunday either. Mine is a coupe.

^^seems kindof silly, he could build his motor to S52 spec for less money than a s52 would cost, and this way he would have a brand new motor.

p.s. bmw motors suck, its almost never worth doing motorswaps IMO. If you're swapping the same motor in cause yours is broken, fine, but S52's/s50's are overpriced.

I'd like to... anybody know somewhere relatively cheap to dyno? Anybody else want to go? It'd be nice to have a base line before moving on to FI. Maybe after the cams and m50 go on. Hopefully over the next month or so....

Cool, I'm curious to see how well the 323 does with M3 cams.
