Ughhh!!!

Just spent several hours installing my angel eyes. lol it shouldn't take that long, just that sh1t went wrong and the video I was following didn't show all the steps that clearly.

First I broke one of the clips removing the driver headlight bezel Then it was a complete PIA to remove that clip on the lower headlight trim that's closest to the metal fender. Once I worked it out it wasn't too bad. Then I broke one of the clips to my angel eyes - damn things are so flimsy! Then I discovered a 2nd clip was also broken (I bought these second hand). So in the end I only ended up installing 2 angel eyes. I then got the angel eyes turned on, but the car wouldn't start. WTF? Then I eventually realized I forgot to re-connect a wire harness (argh noob!!!).

Sigh. So after all that, a few broken clips, cuts to my hand (I swear BMW make the sh1test, most confusing clips/parts), and lots of cursing...I have 2 working angel eyes hahaha!!! Anyway, it will have to do. I will try find some replacement clips for the angel eyes so I can connect the other 2.

The pic isn't all that clear cos it was dark by the time I had finished...but I am happy with the overall look of the angel eyes. I had just wished the clips were a bit stronger!

The car made 213.9kw@wheels, which I think is reasonable.

What sort of AE's do you have? I have some clips that will probably fit. Got some silver bulbs too. Shoot me your address and I'll chuck them in a post bag for you.

My AE's are the EAS Aurora ones. The clips are very flimsy! You can see them at 1:23min in this video:



If you think they'll fit, I'll PM you my address. Thanks man!

Also, speaking of headlights...I might change it up a bit. What's everyone think of yellow lenses? Yes/No? I know a few people here have done it. Are they legal?

Thanks!

love your car man! one of my favorite M3s in the Aus section, as for changing up your headlights... my opinion is that you spray everything but the xenon projector black, I have done it to my car and I always get complimented on it, any mods you do wont be illigal as long as the light output and colour is not affected

Different design.
Mine suit the generic eBay Aurora's/Eurodivision style.

All good. EAS were very kind and sent several spare clips free from the US. Recently installed the other 2 AEs and the car looks great! Happy with them. Let's just hope the clips don't break...cos removing the bottom headlight trim was really frustrating!!!

Anyway, recently bought a fender roller and heat gun. Decided to start rolling my civic's fenders. Went pretty good for a first try.

Fender roller was $88 from ebay and the heat gun was $20 from bunnings. haha love bunnings.



Progress...



One fender done!




I lowered the M3 about 1cm more and that caused the tyres to rub badly on the fender liner and fender itself. Talked to some guys and they recommended me to roll my front fenders, but to use a dead blow hammer instead of the fender roller (cos it might pull the fender). So went to bunnings and bought one.



End result. Not a very good angle, but the lip is pretty much flat now. The fender liner didn't "pop out" of place like what I'd feared. So all good. You can see where the tyres were rubbing on the fender Did a quick test drive and it's all good, hardly rubs on fender now. The fender liner still rubs but I'm ok with that.
