thats weird because it looks like you used double sided tape behind the angel eyes in both of the inner bowls. Maybe it's just unpainted?

No

Absolutely not going to be bright enough if you paint the housings black without projectors.

No offense, but that m3 bumper is really clashing with your facelifted E46 imo. Just my opinion

I have a carbon fiber lip that will complete the "roundness" of the facelift e46.

Agree something looks off with the bumper, a lip would be clean
