I'm 18 years old, half way done with my senior year in high school, and so far i'm the only one in my school that owns a BMW at which i'm completely proud of.

Only mods i've done are
-full sound system upgrade (one 10" subwoofer nothing extreamly fancy)
-Did my own aux

Every other cent is going on fixing the car
-random misfires
-completely broken air intake box
-trunk wont open unless is with the key

after that is fixed
-clear lights all around
-cold air intake
-replace stock wheels (the car originally came with original m3 alloys, but they were too wide on the back and kept scraping after every little bump)
-black kidneys
-angel lights
-tint windows to 30-35%
Also i don't know what kind of rims to put on my baby, wouldn't mind some good ideas.



this is what the car looked like when i got it

All pictures credits go to me
Thats how to do it! Haha good job on the car mine is very similar worked hard for it and very proud to have it, im also a senior and no one at my school has a bmw I feel really good about myself good luck on your mods and fixes

So then everytime you used your turn indicator it wouldn't flash amber it would flash white.

What happens at night when you start using your turn indicators and your blinding oncoming traffic. Black out your taillights some more so I can't see you brake either. And you might as well change the leds in the rear so they flash white to match and you can blind people in all directions. Win.

I know what they are. I am 100% against them either way. The amber doesn't look right at all. This car doesn't have led lighting like a new Audi, it has a unique style which this ruins. Not to mention that having white turn indicators is the dumbest thing ever, they have to be amber per DOT.

Edit: keep the ones you have an enjoy your m3 man. save your money.

It shouldn't piss you off. Those LED corners would look atrocious on your beautiful car. Unfortunately its an older car with older technologies. You will drive yourself crazy if you change out every little thing to keep up with modern technology. Enjoy your car for its driving ability, not because you have matching LEDs. Thats what you bought it for right?

How is your e92? what is it a 328, 335? n54 n55? I want pics or it didn't happen. I for one think that a lot of the college kids in this thread will follow down that road or maybe an e90. just my 02

I'll follow up with pics when its light out, and it is so far amazing. It is a 2000 328i with the sport/M package. and nav. It handles like a dream and it a good bit quicker off the line than my 2000 e46 328i. I'm in my second year of uni and I've been driving the e46 for about 3 years. After all the subframe damage and all the other headaches I really thought I needed to just go for it.
