no clue what did it. but i was parked at the end of the row. that side facing out. so someone had to have either backed across the parking lot into it or something.... and one of the worst places for it to get hit. reinforced metal.....

Uhhh... I think Savage is confused and talking about Jon's black M3, and Botic is talking about my 328... and yes Botic, it would be stupid to put an M3 emblem on anything that isn't....

Your right I thought your car and jon's car were the same car just at different stages of hopups. Jon must have an m3 because I was referring to your (jblood's) side skirts.

You mean the smoked corners, that are like the stock except white not yellow? I prefer the black ones, cos car dealers here have started putting those on every car. So just about every BM from a 318Ti to a M3 has the same lights. I want something different.

And I've got silvered bulbs, so I want to go for a corner light that matchs the headlights, white light, black surround.

They are the ones I want, where did you get them from?

The last time I looked it was gonna cost me like $150 US to get them shipped to New Zealand...

Do you think I could get away with using paint that will stick to pladtic or should I just buy a black grill. was just going to buy one or if I was going to paint it I would try to scuff off the chrome and scuff up the rest of the paint and use flat black plastic paint. What do you think?

use the ones they sell in spray can (flat black) - i just forgot the name and type - threw the can away already

important thing is to primer the grill so the paint would stick

this is way cheaper and the effect is real nice
