Flashlight Conversion e46 to 36?
Hi all, I've been reading the flashlight thread with interest only to find that my 323 for some reason didn't come with one. Seems that BMW Australia may have deemed that we didn't need them in Australia and my car has an el cheapo plastic blank in the place where the flashlight would have been. So, I've searched the threads and couldn't find anything where people have put an e46 flashlight into their e36 and I got to wondering if it's possible.
Why bother? Well, it's a simple project that I would like to do and I know that the flashlights aren't up to much, but it would be cool to have it I suppose. Why the e46 flashlight? Well, it's in black and would match the trim in the glovebox better than the white. Also, the black seems more readily available and is a better flashlight I believe. The white ones I've seen on eBay leave a bit to be desired and seem overpriced. I want to purchase the e46 flashlight and charger unit and fit it into the slot in my e36 then just power it up. Now this all sounds very simple, but is this a straight swap out, or does it require some fettling?
There's nothing more satisfying than a nice e36
