you need corona rings to pull that off. They just look odd being such a small glass lens compared to the halogen inner reflector. Framing it with the corona rings will definitely look better.

To be honest, im probably gonna go back to stock surrounds, im going for the OEM+ look now

You mean go square setup? ye that will make it look alot tougher!!

I think go Mtech2 all 'round is the best option..


just give the car a bit of a tidy up.. i think...
you've got a heap of little nicks/chips/scratches..
if u fix them up before modding anymore it will look ALOT cleaner as it is

naMKaren 09-17-2012 11:54 PM

Did well.
Got a log of all the repairs?

Yup! I definitely agree, i was gonna do that but im not sure if its really worth it, if i can find a good deal i will. I picked up some OEM M3 mirrors for DIRT cheap in the summer, im not sure if i should install those too

Yup! Ill include the pricing for the rebuild aswell!

Rad support ~$100
Rad~ $165
New xenons because on both headlights the tabs broke ~$200
Hood ~$100

Paint for the hood and quarter panel because it had a few dents ~$400

then i also replaced the brakes, power steering pump and thermostat. Gonna do a lot more maintenance over the winter

Good luck with it.

Nice to see an old car restored lovingly by a young person - it restores my faith in this current generation.

BBBoy323i 10-14-2012 04:30 PM

Nice, I'm surprised it didn't cost you too much to fix it up. Did you do everything yourself including paint?
