Time to get glass coverage added to your insurance dude.

It's amazing what well shot photos in nice lighting will do for a car eh? I've had some cars that look stunning with the right photography but just plain awful in good lighting to the naked eye.

I stopped DD the M3, so I'm not too worried about the glass coverage right now.

Have you read the DIY for the IC? Its pretty intense, but works awesome! I bet you haven't seen an e36 cluster look that good in a while

Could you post a link to it, because I can't find it. I thought I had it bookmarked, but, nope, nothing that covers the procedure. I know I've read how to do it, but I'd like to review before I tackle it myself. It make a HUGE difference, obviously.

The original thread appears to be archived or deleted. I think the OP deleted all his accounts on the forums along with his threads. He did have some other really good DIY stuff a while ago. I was able to find this:
