Converted Hella 500's to HID

I went with 5000K lights all the way around. The Hellas were good before but now they're great.

+1

I bought my first set off of Ebay from a high rated seller about 4 years ago and they still work great. I did the same when I converted my Hella 500's and they work great.

+1 on the O-ring. Works like a champ. The one I have is used in hydraulic systems and hasn't degraded in the sun like some others I've tried. I think it came from Caterpillar.

New brake pads

I just installed a new set of front pads on the GS and noticed a couple of drops of brake fluid on the floor from one of the vent tubes. I'm guessing its normal but wanted to ask among you to be sure.
