My Ride: 2005 STi
Hello from a E46 and Subaru owner

Hello everyone,
Just picked up a 2005 325i as my new daily driver to replace a 1997 Subaru Legacy. I am so far loving this car and can't wait to do some small modifications. My main car is a 2005 STi and will post pictures below.

Some of the little modifications I am planning on.

35% tint
LED Tails (I do not know what brand so I am looking for suggestions)
Matte Black kidney grills
black and white emblems
VMR V710 in Matte Black
clear side markers (Where do I get them?)

That is the small modifications I am planning on.

Here are some photos of my cars:

Nice cars, looks like you're not a noob when it comes to modding.

Get the Eagle Eye tail lights and black grills from www.khoalty.com

For side markers I really recommend OEM because DEPO markers turn yellow very fast and water gets inside.

Man you're reading my mind about the tails. As for OEM, they don't make clear smoked, only clear right? I will just put Amber LED's in there I assume.

Noob with BMW wiring. Also I am going to ask Lightwerkz if he has the tool to turn my DRL's off as that is the only thing I want to do. I have a code reader for CEL's so it's a little overboard for 1 item.

I went to Lightwerkz this past weekend to receive my retrofit to projectors and Angel Eyes. I have to send my thanks to both Umnitza and Lightwerkz for all of their help getting everything done in time to make sure it met my tight schedule of availability.

Some before shots from Lightwerkz

When it comes to the OEM clear lenses, my dealer cannot get them. Found some that Turner sells that is not Depo, but what else are my options.
