agreed. I did this to my 1999 323i and it made a huge difference.

Headlight lenses will give away a cars age more than anything else. I took mine off last summer, wet sanded them down, and polished them back to a shine. It takes years off a car. It needs a good wet sand and polish. I am not sure what your tastes are, but if you want him to drop it down, get some wheels that poke out, then maybe that is why he is resisting. It is just a normal, older BMW that could use some cleaning and polishing, and maybe a nice set of wheels.

Aside from the tow-hook cover and cloudy lenses, the only issue I can see is the over-bearing friend of his who displays a covetous nature toward a car, but hey, I could be wrong....
