OMG! That looks so freaking tight! I remember reading on a post sometime ago that you could put on BMW lights onto our cars. Now I know it's true. What kind of modification did you have to do in order to make that light fit and work? I just looked on Ebay and I'm gonna buy me a set for like around the same price you did.

RiceBox i would never write a thread to shoot at you ;) . I seriously had this idea in the back of my mind for years jsut finaly decided to do it one day.

i have the low beams wired up now i need to go to the BMW dealership and check out how those lights are wired up and do the same on my car.

the mods were gutting everything from the headlight area and cutting a 2"/3" hole to fit one of the headlight adjusters....


then you must place the head light and strap her in however you may do so..

its reallly not that hard.


I will have a write up on the whole procedure and maybe put it in NPM if not i will post it on my site for all of you to read.

the tailights

i was wondering if you could tell me where and how to get those other tailights at, i was looking for something new to put on the back of my car, but right now i'm just starting to get stuff done to my car. i should be getting pics sometime soon, it's a red 1989 nissan sentra, I have some fifteen inch centerlines, and i am looking for a body kit that makes the car seems lower than other body kits, i like the way that picture looks like with the skyline front, i wonder if that would work,

looks cool. have you tried to see if the headlights will still work with the stock grill? I know you mentioned earlier about making a custom one but I see on this RWD b12 drag car that he has simular, if not the same lights, using the stock grill. It would be very clean if we could still maintain stock corner lamps and front grill.

well i have the stock corner lamps on and the stock grill is too large... if i push the lgihts to the left any farther the corner lights will not fit .. i already had to dremel some peieces off the corners to get them to fit right. I can fit the stock grill if ai dremel parts of it off to get it to fit.. also I jsut made the lights almost flush with the front it was tricky but i did it. the only probly is i have no idea how to adjust bmw headlights. I have them ok now but they still aim too high. i took it for a test drive last night adn they work really good but still aimed way to high.

The RWD B12 has a one peice fiberglass front. The lights are airbrushed
