Any beam pattern photos to show us?
No not yet, as they need adjustment. I will see if I can come up with some pictures soon.

In the meantime I also bought some US lights. European models do not have US lights, but have the cablework for it. So you only need other bulbs and bulbholders :D

Spruced up the turbo engine today. These intercooler silicone hoses are pretty well made for half the cost of OEM. The T-Bolt clamps are a bit over sized but they work great!

They look like tough clamps and sensitive to tight them, you don't know if you gonna crush the plastic pipe. Will see if it fits long time.
I couldn't get the original jubilee tight enough and had all this vapor oil sweating over the turbo and intercooler line.

Tip: check your PCV system, if you have excessive oil vapors, check that the ventilation holes in your engine are still able to breathe.

This was my turbo inlet

Then I checked the PCV system and found this...

Also check the banjo bolt (mine was blocked). After having cleaned everything, I drove around for a couple 100km's (i'm european ;) ) and checked the inlet again and it stayed clean.

Swapped my snows for my "Worn Eagles".
This is after abdominal surgery so I'm taking a shallow bow.

Love the black silicone hoses. Some of the aftermarket silicone are neon blue which looks way too 'flashy' in my opinion.
