Osram Night breakers - H1. None of this OE junk. The Night breakers are simply the best you can get.

Laser is their new revision, have not tried (doubt there is a difference).

Re: Airbag light on, seat belt light off

Get the code read with an SRS specific reader or dealer diagnostic tools. Fix the problem based on the code, not internet opinions.

Nothing.

City light. Remove the third wire on the front turn signals, connect the gray wire to those. Gray/Purple (drivers) and Gray/Yellow (pass).

Re: Where does this bumper cover shim go?

Joe, I know what the shims are for.

US plate mounting with the holed impact strip.

Never seen that and it’s not for the grill. Note that it says two. The grill mesh retention is; 64111364257

I would not use #12.

As I already said; Call VF. My suggestion was also to refresh the OEM components in the serpentine belt path, of which there are many.

I would not purchase a steering wheel from him. I do have a set of his Alcantara boots and hand brake handle pending install for my E36. The boots appear OK, but the handle needs some attention.
