Look on ebay for replacement lenses. Should be easy and cheap enough to give it a shot.

Interested in parting anything out? I seriously want the headliner A/C pillars. Nothing wrong with mine, but just want the all black interior. I have a bunch of people PM'ing me on parts too if you are parting out.

Picked up a set of E39 Style 5's today, 17x8 et20. Dismounted the tires tonight, going to pull the nuts/bolts/face off tomorrow morning and then strip the clear coat and begin sanding. Now, if I want to polish the lip in the end, will using bondo to fill the curb rash show faint hairlines in the finished product?

Scored these LED reverse lights on eBay years ago. Then the thread that told us about it, everyone was knocking it.
I stumbled upon them today and said Fukit. Put them in the M3. Wow. I am impressed. Thing lights up back there like crazy.

Temporary shoes fitted. I like the look. Too bad the rims are in NEED of a refinish that I will very likely NOT do before selling them. Lol

Fitment is pretty good.

By my measurements, they're 19x8 fronts and 19x10 rears, ET31 and ET45 respectively.
Running 12mm spacers up front and 25mm out back.
So that effectively ET19 and ET20 with 235/265 tires. Fronts are nice and square, michelins you know run thin. The rears are Nankang ns2. Scored both rears brand new for $300 shipped. Incidentally from the same dude I bought those rims from.
They look good. Very very MILD stretch. Which works out great, as the fenders aren't rolled and would def rub if I went with 275s or 285s.

It was the fuse, finally got around to replacing it. Looks tits from inside the car, a white/blue fading into yellowish
