Thanks.

I'm not really sure to be honest, but of course you'll need a new hood, kidneys/grilles, new fenders (is that even the right word for it?), side indicators, headlights and front indicators, and a new bumper (I went with the M-Tech 2).

You'll probably need some minor parts too for mounting etc, and that I really don't know. Sorry.

Shots of the headlights with lowbeam on, and with indicators on aswell:





My HID's are dead, so the bulbs in the photos are stock halogen ones They look way better with the blueish color from the HID's.

A friend of mine is selling the whole front end of a 330i '05 which includes the headlights, bottom headlights trim, hood, L/R fenders, side markers and front bumper for $700 ... I think is a good price

Replaced the Pioneer head unit with an Alpine CDE-133BT, with build-in hands-free. Managed to route the cable for the mic behind the steering wheel and up the A pillar, so only the small mic is visible.

Need to pull the head unit out again though, since it resets as soon as I turn off the car. So probably something fishy with the cables behind it

Will posts some photos tomorrrow when I've sorted it out.

Damn, looks good!

What brand is it?

Also, did you change the bulb in the "eyelid" of the headlight? Or is it the stock one? Mine is no where near that bright.

Cool Looks really good!

What bulb type is needed? And do you have to take out the whole headlight to change it?

That is NICE. Please take some pictures in daylight. I'd love to see how it looks on black.

During the last few days, the car has been at the bodyshop several times due to the airbag light constantly turning on. It ended up costing me a little over $550 in parts and labour cost, as they had to replace the drivers' seat belt tensioner, airbag control module and wiring between these two.

Then, at least, I managed to do something myself:

I replaced the current license plate lights with complete LED inserts:


The LED insert:


Comparison of new LED insert vs. old stock bulb:


I also bought a new cabin air filter:


Removed the old one, and nearly threw up:


Old filter vs. new filter:

Now: 6000k low beams. (iPhone shot, so doesn't do much justice)

Maybe I should try and get some shots with my Canon 50D and 50mm lense in the dark for some better shots of the lighting?

Oil change coming up in the middle of January, and I've started ordering in various parts for an overhaul during this winter.
