Sexy car, awesome pictures, and great background!

Facelifted version of my car. Yours is a lot cleaner though.

Did you modify something so that your angel eyes are the only lights on in the front? Or are your inner bowls on in those pictures?

The angel eyes aren't on in that pic, but they're always on when the car is running regardless if I have the parking/headlights on or not--and I don't have daytime running lights. I also programmed my car so my parking lights never turn on unless I'm signaling so whether I turn on the parking lights of the full headlights, they're not on.

Sorry I was referring to the pics where they were on. I just quoted that pic because it showed the similarities between cars

Is it easy to program the corner lights to stay off? I'd definitely want to do that.

I don't drive either cars that much anymore, sadly. The Bavaria (E3) is in my garage and the xi now unfortunately parks outside in the apartment lot. I really do enjoy driving both cars though, the E46 is always there for me and the E3 is just such a driver's car.

I don't know what the program is, but you have to plug in a laptop to access it.
