Merry Christmas to you too!

The car looks much better from this angle with the wider body showing.:D

Have a safe and fun drive!

Looks mean - I love it.:D

BTW, I installed those reflectors. PITA (even cracked the orange one a bit), but the clears do relly clean up the appearance. Thanks Jim!

Clears look great on the blue. I have 2 extra orange ones if need them...he he.

how crappy the OEM design is. It looks like someone just took a saw and cut through the bumper - no sanding, no overpaint - just that ungly uneven hole. :mad:

The orange reflectors were stuck in there so hard, they would not budge at all. I think the dirt and rain and wax leftovers created something like a glue. That's where I broke one... Oh well, I don't plan on putting them back anyway. :)

But the clear reflectors look great on blue that is true. Now the whole from end is contrasted properly. Added at least 10hp :D

Next time we swap the wheels I will have to update my pictures...

I also have a set (front and rear) of silvervisions for you to make you a little more legal. Then everything will be clear.

Hehe, now that our cars are totally illegal (no front plate, clear/painted reflectors)...:D

How were the fog lights? Did you make them fit?

Jim in Oregon
12-25-2001, 04:33 PM
Nope....I tried both sides. Couldn't get them to fit. I've given up temporarily. I did install the Z3 net and the aluminum pedals. I now have an extra clutch pedal left over...he he.

Are they the exact same style as for your 328i? How did you go about installing the new gas pedal? Was it as tricky?

Jim in Oregon
12-25-2001, 05:29 PM
Yep, same size as 328i. The gas pedal is now really easy. The kit comes with self-tapping screws for the gas pedal. No need to remove the pedal. It took about 15 minutes for the installation. The hardest part is drilling the metal brake pedal.

I remeber your 328i was a real PITA to install the gas pedal. You even had a DIY guide for that. :D

Car is all set to go on a road trip. Managed to fit the bra...really tight fit, but at least it won't flap.
