3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
deffinately euro lights, if u got the 17" 7-spokes then the car sits pretty low already and the wheels are more than decent, so stick with that for a while unless ur itching for ultra handling. since the 328i is already a fast car, i would save the money from bolt-ons to get DDE's (angel [demon] eyes from the 5 and 7 series).
#1 CLEARS!! (a must) then comes umm, decide if you want exterior or interior styling. I think interior is more important cuz you spend alot more time inside than out. Gear knob, ebrake, and even new trim? The mattechrome trim is like 200bucks total, very very cheap, well cheaper than coupes! If ya got 17" i think that is good for now. Tints are inexpensive, id say 100-200bucks. Chrome exhaust tips if ya dont have any (20bucks a piece i think). I think buying some cleaning products is a good idea. And dont forget a nice pimped out BMW keychain to show your friends

I thought pre-'95 were the only ones with the plastic waterpumps... ??? .... then it's only dependent on the mileage you have on the car.
Anyhow - why change anything if it doesn't need to be changed. =) When you are done fixing the car to OE specs(any wearable parts don't need to be replaced, running great but a 2000 should be in great condition) then start changing out for stuff you want to change.
Later on down the road I'm going to tint the windows, do intake/ecu and that's about it. But that's all personal preference stuff and not necessary. It's a great car from the get-go(with the sports package IMHO)
lol 87... first of all you dont even have "corners" so i dont know how you plan about putting them on. And second if youve ever seen an e30 with those clear(they arnt really clear... its more white) front turn signal covers... they look kinda goofy and and have the riced honda look. Look around to see if youd really like them before you spend 30 bux on them.

I live my life one quarter mile at a time, and for those 23 or more seconds I'm free.
there are very simple ways to get rid of the orange on E30's. i paid $3 for some lighting crap at home depot and made front turn signals with a dremol tool. then i paid $2.90 for some transparent modling paint from hobby lobby to make my tail lights red (cuz white would look bad on the rear). go see the "Z4 shifter" topic in the tech forum.

Originally posted by 87 325@Apr 29 2003, 11:49 PM can you get clears for my model? I always see the newer cars that most of you own with the clears, and everyone talks about them, but what's available for me? Thanks
Well, the word "corners" never appears in my post, Fox, and I was actually talking about the taillights. I'm still waiting for Niki's Place to get those really nice angel eyes that were in a post here before the Great Crash. Perhaps I should've used the words "tail lights", instead of "clears". You'll have to excuse my ignorance... <_<
