Hello! Love it. I would say it's steel gray, that's what mine is. Very similar. In detail how did you do your headlights? They look so awesome!

You need 3 or 4 types of a waterproof sand paper. I used 600-1500-2000 grid. You can add an additional 1000 step if you want. First of all you have to clean a lens from a dust with water and a towel. Then you need to sand with the first type of a sand paper. Don't do any circle motion only from one side to another. You can get some water on the surface for better sanding. After sanding you need to detailing you headlights lens. I used a regular drill with the a fiber pad. Take a little bit compound on the lens and detail it.

323i graduation present!!

I just bought my first bimmer yesterday!! 99 323i automatic with 202,000 miles. I got a great deal, I think because the cars can run for so long with good PM. Trouble is I don't know where to start....hoping ya'll could help me out....how would you go about giving your baby a once over

Definetely maintain that baby first and she will treat you good. First place to check out by far would be the cooling system. Follow the thread below by E46Mango. Also make your own thread and I'm sure youll get many more helpful replies.

Mechanic checked it today. He said that's a front axle fault.
What axles will be best to buy?
