Hello all! Check out my e46 :D

Hey everyone! I recently purchased my e46 330ci and have been lurking constantly for info and ideas...

So far I have smoked corners on it and Smoked reflectors and side markers in the mail along with some new CF roundels.

One quick question I have is I want to do the black kidney grills but I see a lot that are gloss black (what I want) but I can't seem to find any that are gloss only matte... Did you guys/do they paint them yourselves?

Here's some pics I took the last day of the semester at the parking garage, I'll have updated pics when the rest of my stuff comes in!







Day I got it:


Any other ideas on mods? I was wondering since I have the sports package if there's issues using lowering springs and different struts than OEM..

Welcome to Bimmerwerkz. Car looks great. A lot of people will use a product called "plasti dip" to color them black. If I rembrr correctly ECS Tuning sells black, but I'm not sure if their matte or gloss.

People swap out the OEM suspension all the time. I don't think you will have an issue.

Awesome thanks for the info! I used plasti dip on my previous car for the emblem and wheels as a temp, It was more of a matte finish but I guess it can't hurt to at least make them look black gloss or not.

I shall search for some good spring/strut combos

Here are some crappy quality iPhone pics of the recent mods:







Last thing I will probably do to the front is some LED angel eyes.

I like the black and white roundel. I plan on getting one to compliment my red/black theme.

As for the headlights check out BAVTOYS.COM - 1•866•988•9995. Habbie is a good guy and will help you get what you need.
