That's how all preface sedans and coupes are. Only the facelift sedans have inserts in the corners themselves

Love it....I just got the email from ECS last week. I think they just started production for the e46 not too long ago. Had to grab it. They also come pre-installed in the vent but I just bought the gauge itself. If I had to do it again I would get it pre-installed....

Had to pull off some freaking yoga moves. Trick is to know and master how top hose screws on the CCV while you have it out. Bavauto has a video on it but they made it look easy.
