For those with a sense of style ;]

I just wanna know what u guys think of my choices

Gonna get the M3 front bumper and rear diffuser, but i wont put a pic of it cuz u all know what they look like.

I would appreciate any feedback on the headlights because i dont really know much about them. also if anyone knows matching foglights i would love to see them!

Suggestions, or opinions? You asked for the latter I believe.

First two are hideous, third one wouldn't match an E36 and thumbs on the last one.

I think those headlights belong on a honda. I'd go with some OEM style projector (glass lenses) headlights for nice clean look. I've seen some on ebay with angel eyes go for $180-200. Plus those one piece headlights will probably pitt and turn yellow fast. Who knows how long the angel rings will last. Probably not long at all.. Thats just my opinion.

Obviously I am not supposed to comment on this. As my girlfriend says she is fashion consious and I am fashion unconsios

But I have to agree with previous posters. Dont ever put those front lights on a BMW or we will have to hunt you down.

The rear lights might work depending on the colour of your car.

the rear spoiler is defintely tasteful in my book.

heres the thing...the best way to compliment a bimmer is OEM plus...anything that is manufactured recently, such as the headlights, is cheap and a waste of money. go with some glass housings and angel eyes with clear or OEM corners. the one-piece lights just dont work, and 90% of them are cheap. The tails are alright, but I would go with DEPO euro tails, not LED's. most of the LED tails youll find on ebay are cheap and will mess up your OBC codes...and you dont want that to happen. As for the rims, i like where youre going, but just make sure the offset is right for your car, and that they will fit. oh, and the honda comment...i was just playin around with you man, dont take it personally

Ok, my personal product opinions:

DEPO Gen IV Projectors w/ Predator Chromium Angel Eyes. They look OEM, but projectors, and you can put AE's in them, unlike USDM ones.

DEPO moked clear corners

DEPO Euro tails or Depo Crystal tails or if you really insist, you could get DEPO LED's, but they really don't work on E36's, IMO.

I don't like the M6 wheels even on the M6, but that's just me. Please stay 17" or under, it fits the car better. That means probably you'll have to go with replicas. I love CSL replica's, and BMW Y-spoke (forgot what style #).

I LOVE the lip spoiler. Have you found one for the E36?

My opinion:
The headlights are absolutely horrifying
The taillights are ok, not my style but if you like em no problem. They aren't terribly ricey.
I don't really like M6 wheels on any car (M6 included). I recommend a nice set of BBS's. If they're out of your price range, used BBS's are better than new... whatever those are.
The lip spoiler: very tasteful

No offense to you intended, you asked for my opinion and you got it.

Those are diffusers, not lip spoilers

Although, those look very good too!

The lights are awful
Rims are nice (though i prefer more spokes myself)
The lip spoiler is cool, but not sure it looks good on the E36

I would get the rims and little spoiler MAY BE, but would stay away from those light upgrades. IMHO there are better choices outthere like from OEM.

BTW, the style of those rims I think doesn't suit E36 but probably that's just me.
