DBs can look good. Problem is 99% of them are faded to shit and have wavy ass surrounds. With new surrounds and good polishing they look pretty dang nice.

Your car pulls off the db look pretty nicely though, but for me it would have to have a set of Euros.

See, I don't get that. I've heard that before, but I do it all the time in my car and it's never broke. :|


Until the day after you posted that, right?

The original gears in my cluster still work, but they have started clicking so I'm sure their on the way out. I've never hit the trip reset while driving though.

In my e21 the only way to make the odo work was to keep the reset held in while driving. I wish it was still the case with e30's. My e21 I just jammed a thin piece of metal into the reset button to keep it held in.
