I just used the high temp spray paint I think I read somewhere than anykind would work but would rather use high temp this is an extremely easy DYI I did this on my 93 accord but you have to bake the headlights in the oven just to take them apart( heat up the sealant)

No you don't. That's for facelift coupes. Your headlight lens clips on and off.

Yeah e46's have their own list of problems, as expected with a 11 year old car. Check out e46mango's thread and do it all (or whatever is up to your standards).

I do preventive maint with the obvious parts, such as cooling system etc. With the rest, I wait until they are asking for a change. It makes no sense to change parts that are still good running. 13 years and my car still running some parts from mile one. good luck and enjoy your "break your wallet" car
