Ill take the one off of the grill tho cos that does annoy me. what do you guys think about the eyebrows? been wondering whether or not to take them off.
my opinion, eyebrows are one of the worst things to put on an e30. if you have euro grills i suggest you just use those.

This e30 is now being parted out. NO body panels are for sale, bumpers/fenders/hood/mirrors/valance or front turn signals. Everything else is up for grabs. Euro grills/cluster are sold, suspension/brakes/LSD/rear tails are already spoken for.

good idea mate, i'll give it a crack at some stage.

Anstead, think I will be taking the brows off too.

youll notice youll get alot more light when you get the smileys on over regular elipsoids. i had high preformance bulbs in my regulars, and but the smileys on with OEM bulbs and they were still brighter. once i put the high preformance into the smileys.. woah!

thats why i got my high preformance bulbs. i used to have to drive with high beam and then effectively have no lights when i had to dip them. scary as stuff!

Mein Auto: 2002 330i with sport pkg
our new 88 M3

Still need to get the car, but we just bought this 88 M3 from my cousin.
It only has 58K miles on it
It needs a little work, but nothing major. It has a slew of upgrades, that will let us have fun driving it both on and off the track.

Mein Auto: 1993 318 is E30 ?
1993 318 is E-30 Cabriolet?

I've posted the description of this car, I bought it hear in Italy. The way they have registration set up you donít actually have a title. I've yet to run the VIN. Itís under "What is my car"

Thanks!

Jeremiah
