Got some lights :)

So I just installed my Eagle Eye LED rears and P46 Depo headlights from Umnitza. I'm in love all over again.

Next up, Mtech 2 front and rear bumpers

Make sure you align the xenons at night before you go out. I have these too and they are so high up by default, the cut off is very bad.

thanks guys. they do need to be adjusted to tilt forward and the clears came with the car. I'm planning on getting some smoked crystals to match the black housings. As for wheels I'm going hyper black and gloss black most likely on the kidneys.

Your front bumper is rare, don't get rid of it! Just do the M-Tech 2 rear bumper, and re-adjust your front fender and hood. I think that is where your fitment "issue" is, not in the lights. Keep up the good work!

Well installed. Looks exactly as if BMW put those angel eyes in right from the factory.

Get an Mtech II bumper It'll complement the LED lights nicely.

You have the original BMW aero kit front bumper, please leave it! Then again it's always up to you. Here's a modified E46 that retained it:

How hard was it to install the p46's? did you have to do any cutting or swapping out fuses from them blowing when it was installed? I'm seriously looking to upgrade my factory headlights but not sure if i would be able to install them.

The headlights come out with four screws. As for wiring, they're plug and play. The set I got came from Umnitza with a wiring harness for the angel eyes and they have detailed instructions on their website. I took about an hour to install the lights and hook up the AEs.

LED's aren't my cup of tea, but as long as you enjoy them that's what matters. I don't see why you would want to replace that nice front bumper, and spend a lot of money doing it though.

As people said, fix that corner. BTW isn't that lip spoiler meant for a sedan?

Did your trunk spoiler/lip come factory fitted or was it a retrofit? The reason why im asking, is because it looks like the sedan one rather than the coupe... (sedan one is smaller than the coupe)

I just did the Predator V2 Angel Eyes and crystal LED corners paired with Eagle Eye crystal LED tail lights. Completely changed the look of my car.
