    Folks,

    im looking to make some very subtle changes to my BMW E46 convertible - ive got my rims now want to make it ever so slightly different to the norm.

    got a small budget of about £250 - and ideas??

    i wanna do the work myself too and not pay for any labour - so easy things that most people can do but also make a nice classy look to the motor.

    I look forward to your ideas.

    Dave

    Hi Dave

    Does your motor have any type of bodykit on as standard?
    If not you could try and get a hold of a 2nd one, or just a front spoiler, they/it will make a whole lot of difference visually.
    I've been looking at replacing the chrome grills for black ones, but if you take a look HERE they've got carbon fibre grills and loads of other mods
    I've never used this company but their website has a very good selection of goodies to hopefully aid you in your selection.
    Please don't forget the before and after pics once you've completed.

    regards

    Did you view the website? Bodykits are just one of their lines.

    I think the M3 style lenses and clear repeaters look sweet if you don't already have them

    Lip spoiler is a great suggestion too

    Lowering on the new RYM's is worthwhile too

    Are you looking for interior or exterior styling mainly???
