Thanks,
No engine work, I'm satisfied w/ what the type II motor puts out.

acurate06, I sent you an email w/ pics, enjoy.

Stalker, the headlights were custom fabricated into the car, so sorry no DIY b/c I couldn't DIM

Crazy cuban, the rear deck lid spoiler could be found @ sarona.com. As for the trunk lid, its custom fabricated.

BiggyB73, I'll try to take some pic when I get a chance. Since this is a major fab work, I recommend doing on a car that you planning on to keep. This type of mod would require work to front + rear bumper, front + rear fenders, and hood.

Hey guys,

Frist off I would just like to say to KTD OMFG!!!! Very clean and amazing job. I have not posted in over 2 years but I had to for this one. Congrats bro very nice job.

I have been in this forum for awhile now but never posted. I have had some insurance and license issues so I have not been posting in abit. Don't know if anyone of you would remember me but to refresh ur memory.

Insurance 17,000 for liability and theft. DMV(nyc) 22 point on my license. gave back my license and bought a motorcycle. Got caught infront of my house for not having insurance on my motorcycle and had both of my license revoked for 1 year. thats the jist of it. I know I posted in the wrong section but i sort of made it short and sweet. hehehe...

All in all, I like it.... A LOT.

It looks like top notch body work and very nice selection of BMW and Nissan parts.

It looks great.

Those headlights are from a 5 series BMW. E39 to be exact. You can also find them on ebay from 340 to 700.

This product from procarparts is fairly priced, however you would only get the apperance of the e39 headlights. When these procarpart lights are turned on, it'll be a different story. The optics would be different as these halogen projectors are not intended for a xenon kit. To make full use of the e39 conversion, I'd recommend going with a true xenon projector and system. Also, these aftermarket lights would only come with a rather yellow/dim halos that wouldn't be comparable to the originals of the BMW. I would think that when the headlights are on, it'll drown out the halos.
It all boils down to your budget. If you are going to spend some $ doing a custom fabrication to your car, I would spend on a quality set of headlights. I'd recommend going with some OEM parts or a quality aftermarket parts that includes true xenon projectors, xenon system, and (daylight demon eyes) DDE tranformer+rings that would light up bright. The DDE systems are much brighter than stock (which are also brighter than the aftermarket @ procarparts). Just an FYI, the optic colors, ring effect, and cut off beam of these "affordable" procarpart lights would not be the same as oem's. Hope this helps.

^Thanks for that KTD.

Any idea how much the whole set up from scratch will cost? I'm willing to pay the $$$ for something to such a standard . However, i'm quite tied with work during the week mostly and hardly have time to build things myself, so i'm wondering if anyone stocks or has anything of the sort?

Thanks.
