    Want to know what people would do if they had a free reign like i have body-wise like i have,not into silly wide arch kits and have the following ideas for it

    dark smoked front indicators
    smoked side indicators
    dark bmw badges
    halo lights
    m3 trim
    m3 rear lights
    lowered 60/40mm
    black 18 inch jade r wheels
    lose the rear spoiler

    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...pictureid=5522

    if anyone is good with photoshop it would be a help to see what it might look like.

    less is more with me but willing to listen to all ideas

    Lovely car.

    M3 Lights / clear indicators all round
    M3 Side mouldings
    Make sure the boot catch is secure and leave the rest alone, don't mess with the spoiler as you will end up with paint not matching under orange street lights if the boot is resprayed.

    Calypso - great colour! If you're going down the smoked route with carbon badges etc... keep it consistent but not OTT. Keep the spoiler.

    Personally I think 18s look great on an E46, but I prefer 17s on an E36 but thats personal preference. Have you considered getting those Style 29s painted?

    Looks good to be honest how it is..

    What i'd do is leave the orange indicators on as there pretty retro and the "in" thing nowadays on some colours. Get some number plate surrounds and have a lip spoiler instead of the full thing on the bootlid, and lower it just a tad, say 40mm all round to make it easy to live with

    +2 on Sham's comments although I prefer the clear indicators.

    You could look into getting embossed number plates - with the number plate surround they look really smart IMO

    did think about it as they need a refurb but people seem to be drawn to them all the time in the colour they are when shining,gonna have a go with photoshop and mess around with some colour changes
