Re: * What did you do to/for your E46 today? *

Easy to do. I highly recommend.

I was a little freaked out after the 500 grit sand paper... no worries though.

Took about 30 minutes.

I'm going back to do the fogs next.

Good luck.

Re: * What did you do to/for your E46 today? *

Tackled the headlights.

Putting about 40k miles a year the front end takes a serious beating.
