New e46 owner

Hell Everyone!

I'm new to the boards and just wanted to introduce myself.

I've been a longtime fanatic, but i recently just purchased my first BMW last month. You wouldn't believe how hard it was to find a Black on Black Manual 330 Sedan! Since i got it i've been replacing parts, upgrading options (wood to aluminum trim, pre- to post-facelift tails, carbon fiber to OEM roundels, etc)

Here's a link to my flicker with some new pictures i just took. Let me know any suggestions or what you think!

Thanks!

Question for you:
Are boobs and hands polarly charged, thus causing the inevitable joining of the two? If so are some breasts simply charged backwards?

On a scale from 0 to 24...wait, 3 to 24, where 6 is the lowest and 12 is the highest, how freaking high re you right now?

She's got you high, and you don't even know yet.

Stealth bulbs needed. Black headlight bezels would look badass too.

Thanks everyone.

I'm definitely gonna have to pick up some stealth chrome bulbs to get rid of that amber glow in the housings. I imagine a set of Eibach Pro's on Koni FSD's isn't far off as well!

i'm still not sold on the black bezels, as i'd like to leave all the corners/markers/tails clear and not smoked. Think it would look weird just the black housings w/ clear everything else?

Looks real nice. I love the trim, thought about that before I went to silver carbon fiber. Enjoy it!!!
