  1. Hello, Going thru and baselining our 95 e34 530iT (Canadian car with DRL), part of things on the to do list is take a look at improving the low beam performance. Just getting my feet wet on this topic and wanted to hear from others what they have found to be a worthwhile change. While it had been suggested to replace to replace the low beam units adapting in a Morimoto (or similar ) projector unit, I would like to keep the look of the e34. I was planning to at the bare minimum to replace the current lamp assemblies with OEM hella units and some new bulbs (HB4) What would be the suggested upgrade path ? 1) use the existing housings and replace the bulb with some form of HID bulb (4500k ?) 2) use the existing housings and use a different halogen bulb? 3) Something else I should consider? And then some form of high beam improvement for those really dark night time drives? Thanks for reading

    e34 530i - lowering

    Hello, 1st post, new to e34's and first touring. Recently sold e28 533i to make way for the Touring. The new car is a 95 530i auto with M60b30 engine. I'm located in Canada and this is a non-SLS car. Wanting to drop the car to close the gaps but finding availability of springs in N/A (so far) not listed - so looking to Europe as Touring's appear to be more popular. Suggestions for what is currently available (H&R, Bilstein) and online shops (PM regarding shops please). Thank you
