you still running OEM MY 2000 head lights? I have fold down rear seats and they squeak like hell, going to try some sil-glide around the edges and see if that helps. Thanks man, you ever hear things about Dr. Beemer, BMW, Mini &amp; Land Rover Repair | Austin - BMW & Mini Cooper Service of Austin for service/repair needs??

I have updated "euro" headlights. A previous owner upgraded them so they have aftermarket ballasts and angel eyes. They are DJ auto lenses (cheap), but I don't know too much about the rest of the setup.




Although I haven't used Dr. Beemer because I'm a super cheap DIY guy, he is the guy I would go to if I was in over my head. I read on here recently that he is has an e39 m5 himself, and also that he's ultra-competent and fair. Besides the seat thing, what work do you need to look into?
