    Hi, decided to colour code the black strips, handles etc on my E46 Compact (thanks for advice on getting them off)... Also fitted 18 inch MV2 Reps + Falken tyres and give her a good old polish and Wax!

    Before:





    After:












    Makes a massive difference in my opinion!

    Cheers for the reply... The rear lights are standard and im not a fan of them so looking for Facelift lights which are all red, should suit the car better!

    Its a 51 plate 320D with only 56,000 miles and is pretty much mint

    Cheers

    WOOOOOW!!!!!!! Those rims and the colour coded strips make your car look about 4 years younger!! There good reps those, I can't tell the difference between them and genuine mv2s.
    The next thing you should probably do is get rid of the mud guards. IMO I don't think they suit the compact, they make it look less classy

    The colour is flamenco red..... Id deff recommend getting the strips done makes the car look much newer and fresh!

    Thanks for all the comments so far.. Just need to find some Facelift rear lights now
