the subframe was that addressed in any way w/ any preventative method? just wondering

just keep your car if its worth that much to you. why sell
Yeah I've been thinking of selling mine for a 330i 5 speed but they are harder to find in this area. I'd like to get one but I have even thought of keeping mine and just leasing a new F30 at some point or even an ATS. But I'd like to keep an E46 around just because I love everything about them.

So today I hit up Solidjakes idea and I opened the headlight first time ever and I painted the inside black it is absolutely fantastic looking with the corners I have in there its to dark for a pic but tomorrow I will def take one and while it was apart found some broken glass inside from a bulb and the passenger side didn't go back together quite so easy but it does look better. Thanks Manjo I appreciate that!

Also pulled the air box off to look at where the OFHG is and getting an idea before I dive in and realized my car has a new alternator! Nice, looked into retrofitting the misimoto projectors and dosn't look to hard still don't know if I like the look. And really wanna put some Orion V2 angel eyes they look to be the nicest angel eyes out there. Where is a good place to get some alpine white touch up? I am in TN and would like somewhere local. Check tomorrow a little after 7est and I will have some pics of the front end again. lol thanks again guys.
