    Really appreciate the photoshop mate.

    What do you think of the idea?
    I dont really know.. kinda 50/50.. if it was well done then maybe but it would be a fair bit of work...

    My bird says it looks gay..

    Lilo if you did that you'd be ruining one of the best e46 compacts around!

    Looks awful mate, have you not considered just getting a different front bumper?

    yeyyyy, im back! ha


    Liam, mate i agree with steve and steve on this one. Original looks good. smoothed and to the side with original front bumper, nope i personally think you should look to a new bumper with differant lines and curves before moving the number plate.

    but you know me i like symetry

    And my alloys are destroyed thanks to that bus/ sigh.
    None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.

    Hmm well have to agree that it's a personal taste and it aint my taste. I would be more inclined to put it down the way, on the mesh or somin. Prolly feck your cooling tho :(
    Is the compact not like the usa e36 in respect to the front moulding? I mean because the usa doesnt need front plates they have a straight section of moulding. If they do have this all you need to do is get the part number and order from local dealer. Then it's just plug and play

    well if you are looking for a finish that makes the car more aggressive at the front then you need to fit a good splitter or change the front bumper for an aftermarket one, i said do the job because it is different and euro looking but NOT aggressive as you want.
    look at these they look more aggressive are they what you are lokking for ?
