Pretty interesting!

Now it looks like you need to do the visors

The black headliner also has black handles, clips and vanity lights.

Nice install, but it's too many contrasting colors for my taste

Oh yea by the way they are not aftermarket they are OEM and are not pulled are re-wrapped.

Add up of the parts in cost and let me know how much they come to.

i wasn't trying to rag on you, but if those are just normal OEM parts... I got an entire headliner package (pillars, headliner, visors, everything...) for $500 shipped to my house

if you paid that from bmw for new parts, then yes i believe the price, however maybe next time if you look on here or wherever, you can score a huge deal

if you got other work done... then that is a little more understanding... however if you ever looked up the DIY on the pillars, they are extremely simple... front pillars for example are 3 long ass screws... thats is

You should two-tone those door panels now. I think black and tan door panels look awesome, and more black in the interior will help out with the balance, IMO.

I got almost everything but the seats and dash for ~$400 CAD locally. I probably could have had the rear seats and dash too...
It was out of a wreck, I had to pull it myself and there are some signs of wear... the deals are out there if you aren't in a rush. Our E46's are already 10 years old.
