Talking check out my new mod, 6000k HID + spacers

6000k HID

Thats the lowest one can go on Bilstein coilovers..
it looks cool but car doesn't turn anymore, too much fender rubbing.. (i did raised my car up by half an inch after that)..

H&R 15mm spacers at the front

One more picture

Great job and pics M52!

Your car looks nice!
BTW, I read from many forums that the 6000k's are not as bright as the 4000k's HID... The only difference is the color of the light, and 6000k is beyond the color of daylight therefore the 4000's are still brighter in terms of lumens i think or another unit which i forgot. But the 6000's look better in terms of apperance and cosmetic wise.

anyways, brighter or not, I think the 6000k's look nice!

thanks , yeah, 6000k are just for looks, i used to have 4100k bulbs but it doesn't give me that HID purplish look i am looking for.. 6000k is not as bright

Yea, the 6000k's should be brighter than regular halogen bulbs, I THINK!

Well NOS, your car has xeons, probably the 4X00k's. Don't know if it's the 4100, 4300, or 4500.

Hey Maciek.

Hey, man. I remember you from the bimmer cruize, I am one of M52_Alpina buddy. I was at the bimmer cruize, too. With the AC Schnitzer 330i. Anyway, your car must be nice with the 18" hamann hm2, well..I was going to get a set of 18" ACS type-III for my car, too. but it's just too heavy, cuz M52_Alpina used to have a sets of 18" AC Schnitzer type-III. But it was so heavy, me and him wants performance more than cosmetic. When M52 had his 18" type-III, Yeah, I admitted my buddy(M52_Alpina)'s car was really reallg low, but since we always drag race with each other when we get new mods. His car was alot slower & also bad handling with the 18" ACS he got. M52TU, I smoked u with my M54TU
mmm.. sorry M52. just joking. and after that, he decided to get a 17" Alpina that are 8" wide in the front and 9" wide in the rear.

Is your Hamann rims heavy? cuz I am still looking for a set of 18" rims that are not toooo heavy.

thanx

hey, i remeber your car...the stock 328is.. you are the guy who sold your bent BBS rims to my friend... you know what, read my post more carefully, i didn't mention anything about being the lowest 328is.. i just want to see how low bilstein coilover goes.. and i did raise my car back up afterwards.. by the way, what do 18" rims have to do with your car being low??.. unless you have no tires by the way, what other mods do you have on your car?

hey

i dan't know what you are talking about?
(the rims being bent!!?!?!)
my rims where not bent when i sold them.
i had them on my car and they were fine.
you can ask randy and all the other bimmer
guys that know me. i wouldn't sell a bent
rim without telling your friend. this comment
you made pissed me off man. maybe your buddy
doesn't know how to drive and runs over curbs
or something. when he put them on, we drove the
car and everything was fine.

i just got a full rcing dynamics body kit put on
my car, rd stress bar, and other garbage

anyway, i hope we can resolve this rime thing.

M52_Alpina....

I can vouch for Maciek on this one.... I hang with him all the time, and don't know many people that are as meticulous about their cars as much as him. If he sees a scratch on it... the whole thing gets wet sanded! The wheels were perfect (I drove his car) and he would never sell someone bent wheels. Your car looks sweet! I love the blacked out kidney grill-look. Remember I was checking it out at the Teutonic meet (Movenpick) last year when I came on my bike?

P.S. How do I know how many "K" Xenon's I have? I've got the ones off a 540I (from Hella).

me again

you are right 18" have nothing to do with a car
being low, if anything it would only raise the
car. what i was getting at is that i didn't change
the height but got 18" put on. both of our cars
seemed to dropped the same. with 18" it looks
even better. i had to get my front and rear
fenders rolled just so i can drive. i couldn't
turn before rolling the fenders because the
fenders where chewing on the tires. anyway, all
i'm saying is that cars as low as our with 18"
look amazing. the tires are completely tucked in.
maybe you'll get to see my car someitme.

where did you get you vader seats?

and, again, find out what your buddy is talking
about.
