Make sure you remove the paint from the lug's contact area on the wheel. If not,
the lugs will loosen as the paint under the lugs work off. BTDT twice!

I've got a set of dual H4/H1 lights for sale. You need a custom turn signal for
these to work though. These lights are stock on the Euro V6/Coupe/Cabrio, I
replaced them with RS2 ellipsoid lights. $250 plus surface shipping from Europe.
Pics on request.
