Personalizing my Z3
 
2 Attachment(s)
I am a 17 y.o. with an impala brown Z3 2.5i. Being young, i felt it necessary to make the car mine in a sense. these are the light changes i did.

I replaced the OEM headlights with Spyder Halo Headlights for the newer, more updated look.

I also used Green EL tape behind the gills to give a bit of a signature to the side of the car.

There is also a Kicker CompVT 6.5" sub in the factory location. i have some other things planned.

How did you do the gill colors again? I like the effect - nicely done!:thumbup:

I ordered two sets of EL Strips from JAB-Tech(google it) for bout 7 bucks a piece. I then followed this guys example. I used some connectors to avoid splicing wires and connected the tape along with the halos to the front bumper markers. Easily done if your patient.

Looks nice. Impala Brown is a beautiful color.
