Why would it suck to have a convertible in the winter? When the top is up it feels just the same as a hardtop. Then when it warms up you can drop the top and "convert" into an awesome summer car. So the real question is "Doesn't it suck to have a hardtop in the summertime?"

I'm trying to get my cinnamon project going, since I finally have some time on my hand.
If you're still working on the rear headrests, this may help http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...85&postcount=5

Indeed, not to mention some of us have hardtops which are pretty much equal to a coupe's roof, but looks better.

Totally in. QUESTIONS:

1. Where can I get a E46Fanatics sticker for my car.

2. How can I change my profile so it doesnt say "Registered User", do I have to donate to the site?

3. Someone broke the couch in the lounge already, it was'nt me BUT NO WORRIES! I found a new one!

you have to buy a 6 month subscription to the site, and for the stickers, there is a thread in here about it.
Search for it real quick and it will come up.

Here are a couple of pics I took when I got it. Since then I've installed black grilles and painted the silver part on lower part of the bumper black.

I don't think black wheels suit, but I find that gunmetal does suit! Taken from another members (alwaysbored786) signature:
