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.

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

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

Good luck with it.

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

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