First off I'm new here and I wanted to say everyone who drives a beamer rules...Those of you who don't have a beamer I feel bad for you :P
I just recently (July) bought a 95 325I 4Dr black BMW. Has 64k miles and I only paid 7500 for it! Had a buddy at a dealship hook me up. Anyways, the car is in absolute perfect condition but there are a few things that I HATE!
I'm going to take my side skirts from grey to black and I wanted some pointers on how to do it and what to use. Also I had noticed that the front/back bumper has grey in it. Is there anyway to take this to black without damaging the car in anyway or without having to replace the bumpers themselves.
Second, I'm going to put in the new projection headlights/demon eyes.. is this hard to do? I'm a newbie on cars (usually fix computers all day long) so keep that in mind...
Also, something that is weird and did see a lot of posts about it... first I was getting the annoying brake light circuit error.. then that pretty much went away and then I get brake light failure. However, my brake lights aren't always out when that comes on.. any ideas? I know there are probably tons of posts about this, but the searge engine was giving me sql errors...
Anyways, thanks for the help and you all have some nice rides! I'll post pics of my car when I get all mods this winter...And sorry if these questions have been posted a lot.. the search engine was giving me errors...
first off welcome to bmw-forums. secondly to answer your skirt and bumper question, may i suggest getting a skirt pakage of some sort, there are lots of avalible options out there, its worth the extra cash to pick up a set. (i have the ///M tech kit)
angel eyes are a great addition to the car , they shouldnt be that hard to do as long as you have some manual dexterity which it sounds like you do if you work with computers all day.
hey, welcome! about your sideskirts, what furious said is a good idea but if you dont have the cash you could check out the faq section where a lot of people have done it and written about it. about the braklight thing...theres a small button-type thing that you can purchase from your dealer for like 30 or so. then go to the faq section for instructions on how to install it.
there is a group buy for angel eye setup right now for E36's/E46's in the Bimmer Store
