Bought it a stable mate, need to find forums for this thing guys!

Accessory sites would be helpful so I can get led tails/markers too.

Hey fellow e46 dudes!! First post time. Today I went to to auto store to buy transmission fluid, diff fluid, and some vacuum hose and on the way back home I watched as a ***** in a dumpy civic get pulled over by a cop! It gave me a good laugh Hopefully I will get my fluids all drained/filled tomorrow.

Got bored and decided to clean my engine bay since it was nice out today. I demonstrated to my neighbor how clean it was, by placing my sandwich on the engine cover and eating it.

I replaced leaky VCG with all of the grommets, rear shocks, and FCAB. Finally saw 172,000 mile heads. They look clean!

I need to do this! What source did you use for ordering the speakers? How was the install? Plug and play?
