Both cars actually have 1998 build dates too, which is cool I guess. I've had the green one forever, the silver one has been mine for less than a year. It has its own thread.

Also took the green one out by itself, hadn't driven it in a few months.

OEM mirrors that had to be modified to fit. See this link for instructions on modifying the bases - http://www.rogueengineering.com/bmw/E46M3MIR.html

My car has 6-pin mirrors, they can be ordered in 6 or 12. Later e46s have ribbon connectors, those require a motor swap to work.

The pair look great.
And your Midcentury house is Rad. Reminds me of a house I use to own with a pair

Pics of my 1999 328i, and my other 1999 328i

I remember my cousin Jeremy showing me that green one maybe 8 years or more ago when he had his 330i and he was on this site. I had a pic of it on my desktop for YEARS. That car is what made me want to get a BMW. Im glad to know you still own it and that it's still just as pretty as I remember it. I'm an all out Bimmer guy now and your car has a lot to do with it. Thought that'd be cool for you to know.

The car came with full beige non-sport interior. I swapped black carpet and center console, two-toned the door panels and center arm rest, black alcantara headliner and rear deck, and finally the M3 seats that I had to dye from gray to beige.

Thanks man. The silver one is a 10-footer but I don't mind that.

Hell yeah, there are actually a lot of similarities between the two houses, even down to the font on the address numbers and siding. Was yours cedar?
