On a side note, I have had no luck with HIDs, they dont light, the ballasts are garbage.

I am ready to start taking it on the road at least for short drives to start to shake out the rest of the gremlins but its going straight to the alignment shop first. Once I can get it on the road and a little reliable I can't wait to dive back into the stereo. I have all the gear except the sub. All my previous installs have had nothing bigger then a 10", with the 9's in the doors I am looking forward to at least a 12" in the trunk. Going for more of a SQ build this time so looking at the morel titanium 12".

Did you get the cheapest you could find or something a little better?

I actually bought the "high end" units, sold at a bmw parts retailer. For whatever thats worth...i put caps inline as recommended. 55w ac units. I still have startup issues with them. Having to turn the lights on and off unitl both sides fire but once they are on i can see for days.

Since my car has they are single bulb housings I really only have low beam, ive tried every combination of dual and bixenon with no reliable high beam to speak of.



I put cob leds in the truck, and they work great. Im sure they will eventually fail but so far so good.

I am amazed that its friday and I am no further then I was last week. Got caught up trying to figure out why the new window regulators were not going up all the way before the warranty period was up with them and wasted a few days with them going back/forth with LMR. Then I had an old friend in town that I hung out with, spent another afternoon in the ER with dad and chest pains(but he is better now). I can't say I didn't get anything done as I am almost finished with the HID conversion I am doing to the headlights and the lack of lights really is the last legality keeping it off the road.
