Left is the osram, the one on the right is the OEM bulb.
as tested by TRS and others, they're not anywhere near 7000K temp, closer to 5500K. But yes one of the best bulbs on the market currently (and what I run as well)

Car is up on stands whilst I respray the brake calipers, so took the chance to give it an interim oil change & fitted the BMS alloy filter housing which has the benefit of a heat sink machined into it.

Please post pics of your calipers when you're done! I'm considering this myself, I just haven't chosen a color

First time tracking at Streets of Willow - first time on camber plates with MUCH more camber and 275/295s - to say there is more grip would be an understatement:

Got it (mostly) prepped for winter with the new snow shoes. Thankfully the old wheels from my M235 worked out just fine with a little help from some spacers.
