Hey there, I'm looking to do some cosmetic updates to my 1995 530i, thought I'm not sure what I would like to do.

I've heard a lot of people getting in to some s--- with the law for clear turn signals, but from what I've seen they look classy on my specific model.

Can anyone confirm or deny the legal issue with clear turn signals? I'm also looking into tint. Just a darker black, but I'm not sure how dark to go, any recommendations on what will keep that classy look the car already has?

And, any other ideas in regards to cosmetic upgrades? I've already put in a system and what not and my interior is still in mint condition (other then a small bit of wear-and-tear on the drivers seat)


here are some pictures.

As much as I like Bav, Those bumpers are 500 each, If you search M5 style bumpers on goggle, you can find them in fiberglass for under 300 each. And the bumpers on Bav do not qualify for free shipping due to the size. Shop around and find the best prices for what you want from rims to interior parts. there is plenty of nice stuff out there for the E34.

Most of the after market Claer tun lamps and markers for the E34 have yellow bulbs in them so that should not be a problem. Bav does heve a decent price on them but you can get great prices from ebay.

The paint job on your car looks GREAT :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

You will need to look up your local laws on the clear turn signals. They vary from state to state (sometimes city to city). Call a cop if you are unsure (dont use the emergency line).

I'll do that, thanks =). I fall more in love with the look of them every time I see them.

thank you, :D the pinstripe on the passenger side was done incorrectly, but I got it fixed for free, as well as some poor bubbling on the same side.

At any rate; I'm going to put some interior pictures here soon, I'll probably be buying a new driver's seat soon as there's a rough patch (unrepairable) in it I don't want spreading.
