      Ok, the rounds I get. They just look better. But sealed beams? Why not pony up for H4/H1 combo? The lighting is VASTLY superior, even without relays.

      Yeah, I'm working on that.



      Man, a beaut. Most likely that car is moving out of my price range, similar to an early 911. I suppose I'll have to settle for a 318is or square taillight 2002.

      Curiously, why no spare? Seems like a pretty easy insurance policy.
