I am not sure...for some reason I thought it looked a little odd, but at the same time I thought that it maybe how it is?

I had Body Shop that my dad referred me to - but it looked ok to me?

I checked the plastic clips behind the corner lights, untightened, pulled up, then tightened - and still there is that "gap"...so not sure what else I could do?

Digging the grill! Trying to decide if I want these colors or the German flag colors. Really like the look of this though.

drove in to work today and ran into a non-car friend at a crosswalk. He asked me if I got a new car, I said nope and drove away with smile. Only in a E46.
