Winter beater work...
15" steel wheels ordered
Already have the Mazda6 brakes and rotors (which I need the steels to clear)
Getting new tires, better wet rating and lower tread wear since I'm sliding in the wet with the hardass ones I have now and duh new 14" won't go on 15".
Re-doing the headlight retrofit with Mini D2S 3.0 square projectors and shrouds, probably going to end up buying a new headlight harness too...and maybe new bulbs...more than I had planned to spend but oh well. Might even jump up to 50W HID, I don't know. I'll see how they look at 35W, if I need more light I'll get some 55W ballasts and burn up what life is left in my 85122+ bulbs. I'm sad that I can't get the DL50 'fatboy' bulbs anymore.
Well my issue with 55 vs 35w is I don't know what the foreground looks like yet. I could have too much light close in to the bumper with 55w blinding me. As soon as I get it together and running with the 35W Denso ballasts I'll decide if I want 55W, but they'll burn up the bulbs faster too...roughly 1/2 the life time. They're rated 2500 hour at 35W, I'd be at about 1000 hour at 55W and they'll dim out faster too as they age.
