My FMIC & DP arrived last week. Great build quality on the DP BTW!! Here's a pic of the core, and a pic of my new Euro lights just for fun. The body shop working on my car should have the FMIC done by the end of the week (we're waiting on my new hood to arrive)<p><IMG SRC="http://www.v70r.com/forums/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=3882" BORDER="0"><br>I really want to give it a hint of black, but I'm debating that. No time to send it out for black anodizing. <p><IMG SRC="http://www.v70r.com/forums/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=3881" BORDER="0">

If anyone wants a pair and is 100% committed, then I might be able to talk my buddy into dealing with another buy.

Mine was more then that and that was with a 'friend' discount. Damn Euro-dollar rate The British Pound is really low right now, so that's a good way to go.

Eurolights rock, be sure to get stealth auto bulbs or similar to get rid of the egg yolk effect. <p>Before<br><IMG SRC="http://img96.echo.cx/img96/4831/1002774small3pi.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>After<br><IMG SRC="http://img96.echo.cx/img96/7843/1002778small9bg.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>For the ultimate in night time illumination, swap in some silverstar high beam bulbs before you install the lights (difficult once installed), and swap out the fogs for silverstars and get the "fog lights stay on with head-beams" download. <p>Stadium lighting is cool, and all the fogs/high beams match in color. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/3062/1005981smallhv5.jpg" BORDER="0">

Very nice <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> .<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>adykes</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">I really want to give it a hint of black, but I'm debating that.
