Alright, so I don't like the way they don't quite fit that well in there on the outer edges compared to the stockers. That being said, how is the light output compared to the factory fog lights? Is it a major improvement? How well do HIDs work in the factory fog lights compared to these?

And lastly, how much do you want for a pair?

these are driving lights for a BMW with 9006 bulbs. I HID"d them. Never tossed hid'* in to the 885 fog lights. They are totally different because they don't just fog, they drive.

Light output is amazing and they light up the whole road. They would be horrible for fog, but I rarely see fog in my part of the country.

$50 for the set if you are interested. You are correct...they don't fit perfectly like the stockers do.

Thanks for the pictures. While the light output intrigues me, I think I'm going to have to go with stock replacements.

In other news, I might be picking up a set of the GSX rear fascia inserts for the dual exhaust. Will a factory GTP exhaust bolt right in?

I just remembered, the guy I bought the car from mentioned something about an oil sensor that needs to be replaced. I know we had it replaced with my L67 before it got swapped in due to how often it fails. The low oil light turns on even though the oil level is fine.

I assume this is the oil level sensor. How difficult is it to replace?

Sure do have the cut outs, I'm still on the hunt for a gp drivers side hanger though as the coat hanger is starting to squeak lol.


The oil level sensor is cake to replace, sometime you can just un screw the plastic nut by hand and it just slides right out. Though i would recommend doing it when you do an oil change so that no oil pours out in your face.
