Allright, first of all hello to everyone here, I have been reading the forums for a few days and you all seem to be very knowleageable, so I have a couple of questions, I finally got my brand new 325cic from the dealership after 2 months wait and I want to do a couple things to it.

1- I want to get the clear/red euro tail lights and clear front quarters, who have you guys ordered these from before and gotten a qualitty product from, basically who do you guys recomend I get them from?

2-When I ordered my car , I didn`t realize that an automatic soft top was an option, therefore my car came with a manual one (yes I am an Idiot) is there a company that can make that manual soft top into an automatic one, or is there anyone that sells a kit to do it?

Thanks in advance
Patricio

Ouch. About the convertable top, if it's important to you, I'd speak to the dealership. If you just got your car, I'd hope they could do something for you.

DISCLAIMER: I don't yet actually drive a BMW. Currently, I proudly drive a '93 Volvo 940, the inspiration for my love of RWD cars.

Well, the salesman (who is one of my hunting buddies) actually asked me if I wanted a FULLY automatic soft top, and I assumed not fully automatic, meant that it was like the top on my old car (clk430) where the top comes up automatically and then you just latch it in by hand, I never thought he meant fully manual, so I`m kind of screwed on this and need to find an aftermarket way to do it.
The car only has 35 miles on it since I left on vacation the day I picked it up, so I`m actually thinking about selling it and getting another.

Any help would be apreciated
