nice...

Could you please take a few side pictures of your car? Is your trim matte black color? I have a black 330ci and I was thinking of painting my trim, front bumper, and rims matte black but I am unsure how it will look matte black color.

Thanks in advance!

My trim is black, just stock but fading a tad. I was thinking about plasti-diping all of the trim too, I'll get some pics up soon. I should have my other wheels on this wkd with them plasti-dipped as well.

Murda46 Thats exactly what I want to do is plasti-dip mines. I just want a new look. I have never really liked blacked out cars, but the e46'a look great especially when the e46 is lowered.

The Angel eyes looks great. I would turn the DRLs off. What type of front bumper is that? is that like an mtech lip or something?

Car looks great man! I got my Khoalty Angel Eyes last year and have had no problems, but lots of compliments! Definitely turn off the DRLs, the Angel Eyes become your new DRLs pretty much lol. Try posting in a regional forum to see if anyone who lives near you has the tool to turn off your DRLs so you don't have to go to a dealer or indy. My indy charged $60 for 2 minutes of work.

LOL you realize you just got rid of your high beams right? Not a good idea at all, dude.
