Mine wouldn't even work, some of the wires weren't even connected! Still waiting on the replacement parts, probably take a month. Much longer and I am just going to ask for my money back.

If I wasn't so easily distracted by shiny objects, I probably would have been tempted to return the product. Every time I see the reflection of my car off a shop window, bumper of a car in front of me, etc, I just love it! But right now I'm hoping to see a few local examples and if it's only mine that has these issues, I'm going to request a new ballast and circuit board.

I could also switch the passenger and driver side ballast and see if that'll help pinpoint the problem... but so lazy...

The airfilter definitely adds growl! I love it, good bang for the buck. When is your exhaust and all your other mods going on Glenn? How is the AA ECU now?

The rest goes on next Wed at Karmac, hopefully BBK too

The AA ECU makes the car totally new, those 8 little hampsters hit it hard at 3000 rpm and it pulls way harder

1st and 2nd come so fast and then you are doing 150

Me likie, alot

Definitely a switch right around 3000, very noticeable

Be interesting to compare it to the Dinan

Next meet, we all keep saying

Hmm... I've always had an affinity for turbocharged motors. Hopefully there will be some sort of monster kit from HPF in the next few years. It'll be fun testing the next generation and seeing if it's worth moving on or just doing something insane with what we have now.

The install took a bit longer than I thought, but overall I didn't have any issues. But I did notice a slight high pitch hum coming from the passenger side. Due to my ECU waiting to be returned for AA, I haven't had the chance to keep it on very long. After about 10mins the passenger ballast is warm to the touch but, I'll have to see after a longer time with it on. But it just hums initially and then dies down though for you right now right? But I do agree that the HID brightness is one of a kind.

I'm down with that, just as long as it's some time in the evening after my LAST EXAM for a long, long time.

So there I was filling up my fiances honda accord with gas at Esso on 111th and Ellerslie when I hear this distinct beautiful sounding engine in the background. Never thought anything of it until it roared again and sure enough here comes an SSII E90 M3 flying around the corner! HAHA! Glenn is getting a heavy foot! Your car looks beautiful man with the Neez! I never knew the stock engine note sound sooo good before. I had to laugh aloud though, Glenn was making sure to keep the RPM up, haha!

I was going to but you were going to fast! I waved my hand initially and then I laughed because I knew there was no way you would have seen me.

It's in the afternoon, so if you guys want a meet then it'll have to be in the evening before I can meet up. Hopefully with a good feeling of passing I'm getting too old for these exams myself so it's about time. I'm no spring flower like Albert there Studying is coming along, although I always get distracted with all u guys posting your mods and bling bling upgrades
