Money in the front!
 
5 Attachment(s)
Thanks goes to Bimmer World in Winder GA for the parts at a great price. (no I dont work for them). I upgraded my broken amber turn signals with some DEPO clears ($30) fixed a broken headlight socket ($5) and a new hood emblem ($20). Looks so much cleaner. Some before and afters.

Buy some touch up paint. Those rock chips look horrible.

Get black grills, paint your headlight inserts with plasti-dip so they match the corner lights and retrofit in some Morimoto projectors.

Joshwa1234 03-07-2013 08:05 PM

Yea I just bought the car Friday so little at a time big guy plus the hail damage you missed and the fact the bumper either needs replaced or I am gonna try to adjust it. Next time try not to come off so harsh lol. Dont like the black grill look, might paint the inside of the headlight if I can get them open without damaging them, will not install projectors or HID as of now I like the open bowl look. Thanks for your opinion though!

Solidjake 03-07-2013 08:07 PM

Lol, I did not come as harsh whatsoever.

For the headlights it's very simple to pop off the covers. Use this as a guide

As for the projectors, trust me. Xenon lighting in projectors will make you smile every time you drive at night. Just look at my sig.

Joshwa1234 03-07-2013 08:21 PM

Its a lot of money for me just to fork out on lighting when I am satisfied enough for now maybe one day down the road I will do a change over. First when it warms up I have to replace my OFHG. Then possibly more aesthetics who knows I just know I love the car. Thanks for the link though I will def check into it. Step 1e is the part I should make black correct? That is an extremly good DIY.

Nice, yeah I agree. Angel eyes are pretty tacky on older cars (Yes, the E46 is old :shhh:)



In regards to the dispute above: everything typed on forums looks harsh/sarcastic to me. I think people come off that way accidentally all the time. Text is misleading.

I really like my angel eyes. Although I do very much enjoy the beauty of e46 lights without them. The shrouds are very pretty

Ah, finally a damn pic of your car. Great success.

Joshwa1234 03-08-2013 11:14 AM

I like the angel eye look but who knows where the car will take me and what it will look like in the end. I am going to attempt to open my headlight today!

GLWS but the 323/328 is not as good as the 325/330. i think only a 330 would get the attention you'd need to sell for that price.

the subframe was that addressed in any way w/ any preventative method? just wondering

just keep your car if its worth that much to you. why sell

I think I'm going to keep it. I really like it. I sometimes have thoughts of getting rid of it for an m3 but I've taken too good of care to my sedan to just give it away.
I didn't realize so many haven't seen my car. I've been on here a while and have posted it in various threads.
Maybe I'll make a showroom thread. Keep a lookout for that.

Mango 03-08-2013 01:01 PM

i've only been to showroom section once in my life. put a pic in your sig =) this is an e46 forum afterall. no watermelon'd e30s allowed

Harsh? :facepalm: you must not go over to the off topic section much.

Most BMW wheels are 5 stud so the Watermelons should fit, not sure about the offset though
