    Hey,

    This is my first thread and would appreciate any replies.

    I have recently bought a 2003 316ti SE e46 BMW. I was wondering though what possible MODs or attachments are out there for this car, from body mods, to interior mods.

    I currently have 16 ' standard stock alloys, and was wondering if there is anything I need to do to my car to put on 18 ' MV2 alloys.

    Is there any mods or attachments that I can put on my dials, and speedo considering they're abit plain.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    imo if you havent got leathers that would be a great upgrade to have, a bit costly but worth it if you plan on keeping the car
    Some 18's like you mentioned would do nicely along with some painted calipers.
    Plain and simple but quite effective and stands out from others

    thanks for the reply man,

    no ive not got leather interior, ive got heated front sport seats though, so i guess it would cost quite abit more than a standard leather seat.

    whats the difference between replicas and bmw alloys? they seem to be exactly the same. and who do i trust doing these mods to my car?

    Just out of curiousity, I looked at a few angel eyes for my compact, however even if i do decide to buy these new lights, who can i get to fit these. would i require a mechanic or some other place?

    and is there such a thing as angel eyes for the fog lights?

    BAH! thats a shame man, would be interested to see what a angel eye fog light would look like.

    I am gonna take some pictures of my car tomorrow and put them up hopefully.

    I looked at a few of the websites you mentioned. They were a great help but there is such a variety in price though. So it's best to get a mechanic that's done this sorta thing before i take it.

    and as for confidence...well this is the first car that ive bought that im WILLING to make any sort of changes too.
