It pains me but I have to agree with Mango on this one.

Some better pics (lighting, background, framing, etc etc) would showcase your car much better also.

Well new wheels and coilovers are being installed tonight so new pics are coming soon. I think the clear side markers I have coming will look way better too.

Should have gone with black or white, not a fan of the color at all.

Does the right headlight lens look very clear and the left hazy to anyone else?

Amber corner looked better than the smoked style in my opinion.

Looks like a great platform to start with!

Are you planning to do much of the work yourself?

Hated the ambers, and hated the white Euro clears on prefacelift, look afterthought from the factory.
so I really like the light smoked clears.

If you keep the smoked corner lenses paint the inside trim of your headlight flat black. Also your lower bumper inserts paint them black as well so it all flows together. Ive never seen a black sedan with Titanium headlight trim. Cars nice though. Cant wait to see what you end up with. Good luck bro

From what I've read it was one of those weird things BMW did for a year or 6 so during the model run where 330 got titanium inserts, 325 got black.

I am for sure painting the insides of the lights black, already planned that. As for the rest, it's a work in progress but here's where I'm at now...
