Because Ms. captainfantastic was afraid of hydroplaning my rears were renewed too.

Pirelli P Zero Nero with 7mm profile.
Bought them used from a friend. It was a steal. 185 € for both. Original price 300 € each (new)

Looks like a BMW color. You've got that thing pretty sorted out, good job.
Love the car, the mods, the color.. what is the name of that blue color or code?

This year´s winter setup:



No, no 18" this year.

Long, short story:
I decided to buy a set of 16" steelies, because if "The Bitch" will roll to the junkyard someday i won´t get more money for her rollin´ on alloys.
So i purchased a set of 16" steelies (because of my BB upgrade) with winter tyres (6mm left).
The 18" will be spared and the 16" abraded.

Thanks for looking =D


Did some handicraft work
Not stunning for US guys, but.......

SML Adapter connected to DRL pin

Bought 2x 3pin socket for 2-filament bulbs and the adequate plug

2x 813 972 927 (plug 3-pin)
2x 3B0 953 123 A (socket)




1x 000 979 135 (wire 1mm²)
2x 000 979 227 (wire 2,5mm²)
2x 000 979 203 (wire 2,5mm²)
2x 813 972 926 (plug 2-pin)

Wires are cutted and set with the connector into the proper jack (lower horizontal= ground, left vertical= SML, right vertical= Blinker)
2,5mm² are for blinker and ground, 1mm² for SML contact

I used a further wire 000 979 135 (1mm²) for housing 2x 3A0 979 751 H, 000 979 130 (1mm²) for housing 2x 3A0 972 761 H (counterpart)
This isn´t necessary if the SML contact is hardwired to the citylights but i want to use the second filament in the bulb as DRL.
Since this mod isn´t legal here in germany i have to mke a click-off-fast solution.
Mentioned wires are also cutted in half for use on left and right blinker








Wrapped with electrical tape:




Extension to the enginebay





The plug with the blue wire is the part which will run to the SML pin at the main light switch. I have to open the ECU housing for this.



1x housing 1J0 972 923
1x wire 000 979 133 (1mm²)

The two wires are soldered together with the blue one, covered by a shrinking hose

The lower plug with the two yellow wires will be connected to the Adapter

1x Housing 1J0 972 712
1x Wire 000 979 129 (1mm²)

This means i have a coupler in the engine bay area to disconnect both wires from power supply and each feed line seperately down at the adapter.
Of course, there will be a 8A fuse placed in the main feed line running from the switch to the first coupler.
