first off,
I love the color. I also love those original rims. Those are my all time favorite rondells spoke rims.

I think the corners stick out because the HLs are very eccentric and color matched to the car. I would get rid of the HL and get Projectors Angel Eyes made by Depo or ZKW.

If you keep the HL the way it is I would say smoked corners and smokes tails would match up well.

If you're going to keep the HL's though, and go for clears, do the background in that red color. You'd be weird to do that in black with everything else one toned.

lose the HLs, my friend. there's nothing sexier about a bmw than those angel eyes... once those HLs are changed, i think the decision would be obvious. nice ride, btw. love the color.

Take my advice and smoke the top line of your tail lights and leave the rest. I did it and it looks pretty sick. At least i think? what do you guys think of them? sorry the picture is so massive!

Go for either orange or smoked corner lights. never really been a fan of clear corners on any e36 ... headlights are too tinted to run clears with; and your headlights are mostly the body color ... making them stick out even more.

ya, changing the headlights would be ideal in this situtation, but i don't think it looks SOOO bad..

another idea, would be to get some sidemarkers... maybe if u had some clear side markers, the corners wont stick out too much?

i had a buddy that owns a race shop out here in minnesota do it for me. I like them alot. Yeah i regret the clear corners but there better than orange. Orange is to stock and old school looking. I want the clear with the black back rounds as well.

I would go back to orange for the corners as well.

they match the color of your car better . . .

and I like you wheels too !! :-)
