No, it's just a little safety enclosure that I put up to protect my ride.

That is a lot of fence for that little, albeit, very nice, ride. Concertina, high lumn lighting, Brick walls.... Rough neighborhood for sure.

Gas was just 17 cents a gallon here. Problem was that I couldn't figure out how to get the darn pump to work.

They are stock Premium package headlights with some plain ol' angel eyes in them. Don't remember what kind, it was 3+ years ago.

The wheels in my sig pic are SSR Comp-H in anthracite, 18x8.5 +42 offset, ~18 pounds. They are no longer made, but were originally offered in silver and anthracite, both with polished lip.

If you're looking for some used (that's how I bought mine), the E46 version will not work on an E39 because the center bore and offset are not compatible.

They are also available to purchase separately if one chooses to. Some folks install it and hide their satellite radio antenna under it. In 2005 when I ordered my car it was included if you added the premium package.

If you had assist, I believe you had a gps transponder there. My '04 Xi had assist and has the shark fin, my '05 ZHP didn't have assist and no sharkfin.

Here's mine. Is this "Sienna Red Metallic"? I don't know the correct color name, but I love it.
I don't know how much in the way of modifying I'm going to do. I'm thinking it needs dark tinted windows and maybe some black wheels, but it just got brand new Yokohama tires all around, so it will be a while before I swap wheels/tires. I'm just going to enjoy it as is for a while (yeah...right)!!

Pop the hood and look on your shock tower for the color and code.

Well...I popped the hood at lunch and looked on the shock tower...nothing. What would I be looking for exactly?

I'm guessing the color is Sienna Red Metallic but it sure looks more "orange" than that...more like Byzanz Metallic.

There should be a tag on the driver side tower, visible from the front of the car with the hood up. It will have the paint code on it. (looks like sienna red to me)
