johnny,
oohhhhh SNAP!!!! it IS!!! at the moment, the E36 is not being ignored, it is actually pissing me off. I cannot find out what is up with that clunking, i had the whole rear end apart last night... but that is another conversation in another thread.

Nihilator is an unknown quantity at this point
I was thinking of bidding on them, but it looks like you could use these fog lights more than me. Auction ends in less than 4 hours. Don't know if you could get a better set or a cheaper set locally.
