I like the tail light tints, I'm currently looking for something similar for my 04 330i.

Had a lot of maintenance done this summer. New starter, crankcase, o2 sensors, light module, taillight circuit (for old stock one). Almost done paying all of that fun stuff off. After that (hopefully soon), ordering coilovers, m3 replica bumper from Umintza. Having trouble with the wheels. Any suggestions. Kind of thinking xxr 521 or Varsstoen es111

Finally fixed my trim. Figured out how to remove the trim right below the window. It's all painted and back on. Really wasn't that hard removing it.

Under the window just pulls right off with some force but be carefull not to bend it. It'll bend very easily. And the top just pull out and you'll here it pop out (just a bunch of clips)
