right what? are you being sarcastic? let me put it this way, my knowledge on the e46 and e46 cooling system pales in comparison to my photography/gear knowledge. so if you have something to say, say it.

thanks! That particular photo was just a quick grab in sh!tty weather (san francisco). Not ideal to my standards but it's still nice for a FB post. (also remember that pictures I post are usually aggressively compressed so look like crap. Anywho, i'll make sure if i see your car to get some decent photos in it. all depends on the weather

Just ordered new Genuine BMW kidney grills from ECSTuning. They were the cheapest by far. Local dealer @ a discount wanted $144 including tax, bmaparts $114 (Actually $121 shipped), ecstuning $107 shipped. I hope this is the last I spend for a long while.

Edit: BMAparts wanted $7 to ship. So make that $121 shipped bmaparts

Why'd you need new grilles? Looked fine in photos.

The tabs inside don't latch onto the hood. the grills themselves are in great shape. A shame. i'll keep them as spares or make some kind of art out of them

My Ride: 2000 BMW 3XXi ZSP
Use the Peake Airbag reset tool to reset my passenger side airbag light after I was re-ended by a Cadillac CTS and replaced the gas cap hoping it solves my LDP CEL issue.
Finally ordered replacement ZSP front and rear bumpers this week.

They might make some good display art for the garage. Get a spare emblem and put those all on a board or something.

I'd provide the link but I'm out and about. If you perform a search on the forum, you'll find it easily. If you're a paying member or make a donation (I could be wrong about...), you're allowed 3 - 5 stickers depending on the level of membership you get. Nice inexpensive way to support the site.
