Just recently got this 1992 325i, my second BMW (had 1990 325ix). It is stock except for painted bumpers, M3 exhaust, and 17" wheels off of a 330i. The next exterior mods I want to ad are some nice headlights and taillight lenses that eliminate the orange blinker. I really like the smoked lenses, but i dont think that they will look good with the color of my car.
My main question is with the headlights. I've looked through bavarian autosport and ebay and there seems to be like a lot of choices. I was mainly interested in the one piece headlights/parking lights with the angel eyes that I've seen on ebay many times. Has anyone put these 1 piece lights on their ride? If so did they fit in nicely with no gaps or anything? If you have pics please post

Thanks

The car looks kinda silver in the picture because of the lighting, but the color of the car is actually glacier blue, so I dont think the smoke lenses will look that good. Thanks for the compliment Cruzin . I think I'm going to just bite the bullet and put the money in for a quality set of lights.
