My Ride: E46 Compact & Coupe
Exclamation BMW E46 COMPACT & COUPE - Various DIY's and help needed!!!

Hi everyone, new to e46fanatics, we are two students working on our bimmers on a tight budget. We own a BMW e46 compact 316ti and a BMW e46 coupe 318ci.

Below are pictures of our cars and all mods that we have done. i will right a list below

BMW compact:
angel eyes
xenons
new alloys
blacked out rear lights
led number plate lights
2x12" subs and apline headunit
vinyl wrap roof, mirrors, rear lip, all badges in and around the car.
black grill
tints (did not do this myself)


BMW coupe:
angel eyes
xenons
blacked out indicator lights and side repeaters
vinyl roof, mirrors, rear lip, rear bumper spoiler, all badges, interior trim
black grill
tints (did not do this myself)

i am posting pictures of before and after our cars are done. tell us what you think, give us any SUGGESTIONS for further cheap mods and your opinions. we are still doing more mods day by day and we will update this forum once done.

we also need some help. our compact mirrors are proving very hard to vinyl wrap. if anyone has done this before please give us some tips because the angles on the mirror are virtually impossible to vinyl wrap without causing creases.

if anyone would like any help on any of the mods we have done, feel free to ask us and we will be happy to help.

Nice E46's

The compact is way too dark honestly, should have left the tail lights alone.
