They had to do it twice to get the lines to match right... this was the easy part... the rear bumper and quad exhaust is gonna be the hard part

I'd like to contribute to Alec's great thread

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...3D10%26hl%3Den
this is for all those ribbon-connector folks that haven't been able to get M3 mirrors...all it takes is a motor swap into the OEM M3 mirror housing, and to find a way and secure that motor on there. Then thread the ribbon through the base, etc. plug back in & voila, you're done
I'm about to do this to my car

Difficulty: 3/10

Part Number: M SPORTS STEER.-WHEEL, AIRBAG, LEATHER, BICOLOR 32348022322 $700.29

As long as you have the round airbag, this will be a direct bolt-on. The airbag, horn, radio buttons, cruise control, and everything else will work. Yay!!
I have a year 2000 BMW 318 Coupe, and wanted to purchase a M3 Steering Wheel to replace my standard original steering wheel.

My question is, where can I purchase the proper wiring looms to get the radio controls etc to work on my BMW standard radio?

Any help or advice would be most appreiated!

OEM M3 Fenders on a Sedan

I was reading your thread on putting M3 parts on Non M3 cars and was interested in the part about M3 front fenders. Do M3 front fenders bolt up to the Sedan without modification. I was looking to do that to my 330.

Nope, it would take a sh!tload of modification to make them fit properly on a 4 door. Sucks

angel eyes headlights

Hey Alex thanks for the info, I was also looking at you car in the garage photo you have available on your blog. I noticed you have the angel eyes on your headlights, did they come with your zenons or did you put them in? If you put them in and your headlights are auto leveling, did that effect them at all and how did you do it? sorry to keep asking all these questions, Im just getting into fixing up my BMW after years of working on my integra.

they work fine with autoleveling, they're attached to move with the projector as it levels. the instructions are on jlevisw.com i think, or just search 'DDE' or 'Angel Eye' in the DIY forum. i've installed about a dozen of them too, so i could help out in pretty much any way..

fwiw, my old ones were installed on my oem halogens and my new ones are on depo projectors from ebay.

Is it just me or do the front corners where the fenders meet the hood, above the headlight not quite match up, in the 1st pic?

There were some alignment issues at first, after returning back to the body-shop and some complaints later they straightened it all out. the lines are perfect now. If you look at my sig you can see the finished product

Does the M3 front bumper fit on a Non M3 coupe's stock front bumper carrier?

They dont look the same on realoem.com

Having said that it is an aftermarket M3 bumper ive just bought..... too good a price to pass up on.
