Nitty68, the angle eyes are LED from ddmtuning. i bought their whole package with the LED angles and HID headlamps. I know people knock them but for the price you cant beat them and i have had no issues what so ever.

MikesE39, I wanna see what your style 42s look like in black!

Sorry I don't have any shot of it while clean. And the first one withthe silver lip is because I painted em 2 times, when I install the m bumper I might go back to silver lip.

Yeah, that's not a very good angle. Besides, I did a cut out on a '91 Golf 10 years ago and it looked like ass, so I really don't have that skill.

Here's a better angle as it follows the angle of the lower bumper...

Mein Auto: 2002 530i Sport M pack
Living with my 530

I have had my 2002 530i M Sport for about 15 months now and love it. It had 50 thousand kilometers on it and now has 67 thousand. I have not had any troubles as I brought the right car. My brother who has had many BMWs advised me the following.
Figure out how much you are going to spend and what model you wanted, then by the car with the least mileage and best service history.
My car was immaculate and had been treated like a baby.

My mate brought a 7 series with unknown service history and about 110 thousand kilometers on it. It had a different brand Tire on each wheel and he has trouble after trouble. New alternator, engine trouble that meant he was off the road for a month and now he has not been able to re register due to his electric handbrake not working. DON'T BUY TROUBLE!
