Dude, it's NOT that hard to find. Seriously, get off of 64 at Mercruy Blvd. Head towards the James River bridge. Down Mercury you'll run into Jefferson. Make a right on Jefferson and City Center will be a few miles on your right. HUGE signs... you cant miss it.

I run no front plate. Well, its in the windshield. Been pulled over twice since doing the delete (speeding, and improper lane change) and both cops didnt mention it. The cop that got me for the lane change actually looked at it for a minute. Didnt say anything or write anything about it on the ticket though.

I know right. Throwing my name out like that. Those aren't bad appearance wise, but not for me. I'm picky about the rims I want. Lot of critera to meet. (19's, all black, 5 spokes, lightweight, offset must fit, thinking of staggered, not too sure yet)

So, I picked up some tint over the weekend and decided to smoke my own tails. These are the stock tails with that ugly amber section, but now I think they look 10 times better. Let me know what you think. They are still bright enough to light up at night, so I shouldn't get pulled for this.











I'll take some more day shots tomorrow when it's lighter out. Didnt finish these until about dusk.

Has he actually done the install on the e46? I called them and they were dumbfounded when I told them about the vent modification. Maybe I just talked to the wrong person........

Well, throwing your name out there? Its not like I said hey, this mawfuka is a douche bag, don't sell him sh1t.
I thought I was being helpful, nevermind, ill mind my fukin business from now on.
Tinted tails look good btw.

Dude, what exactly are u trying to do with the double din? Do u have a AC relocator kit, and a ddin surround and a head unit with bracket?
If so, do it yourself. Our dashboards really aren't that complicated. Seriously man, pull it apart and you'll see.

Okay snikwad, apparently you have no idea what is all involved with a double din install. It is totally different than a single din radio. Let me enlighten you a little on what is all involved so you stop acting like it takes 5 minutes.
Look at this and tell me that all you do is pull the dash apart.

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=359837

The install is said to take an entire weekend. I was a clean install and I know that I cannot do it myself. I do not have the time, tools, or place to work. That is why I asked this question. Do you understand now???

Okay smarty pants, go piss your money away. Say what it is, say you don't have the time, or tools, or whatever. But don't make the damn thing sound like like it has a difficulty of 5 wrenches.
I've completely dissambled my dash, I know what's back there, I know the setup.
I'm confident I could do a double Din install.

I've changed my differential rear bushing. That sh1t takes an entire weekend. That **** is difficult. The double din install may be time consuming but difficult it is not, one of the main reasons it takes so long is the space constrain behind the dash. And routing the wiring. I don have a double din setup but I have more AV crap in my car than most and since owning it I've completely dissambled all parts of it at some point, including my sub last wednesday, so don't come at me like that n00b. Your not a DIYer, and I am so don't bash me for trying to save you some fukin loot. I guess ill mind my fukin business as far as you're concerned also.

I am not being a smarty pants. I am simply telling you I do not have the time or resources to do it and I just wanted you to see what was all involved so you would stop giving me such a hard time about it. It is worth it to me to have a clean factory look so I would like a professional install.

When you say "apparently you have no idea" and "now do you understand" that's being a smarty pants. That's saying, fuk u, I don't need or want your help.

Noob huh................I was a mechaninc for 7 years, went to school for it for 2 and had 2 ASE certifications before I started my current career. I guess you seem to think I am a noob because I am not a post *****, but whatever. If you are confident that you can do the install Billy Bada$$ then please come to my house and do it and I will pay you the money. I am in the position now that I make enough money that I dont have mess with it. An ape could disassemble the dash. Its the fabrication that takes skill which you mentioned. I wasnt trying to be an ******* when I posted the DIY, I was trying to let you know so that you could understand but if you want to get pissed off about it, I think its a little immature.
