New guy w/ some newbie questions

I bought my first 325i this weekend. I want to swap out the side markers for clear or smoked ones. This site states up to 2004 and 2005 on the ad. http://www.parts4euro.com/cgi-bin/PP...041&category=7

Will these fit my 2005 325i 4 door sedan? I ordered the oem Sirius receiver/kit/antenna today and looking forward to throwing that in this week.
thanks

Yes, they will fit.

If you're interested in a full set of clear lights, I'm trying to organize a group buy (only need 2 more people to get the discounted price)...

sounds tempting

I just traded in my Audi A4 that was heavily modded(removed mods before trading it into dealership) and I promised myself that I wasn't going to mod this 325 at all. Well, I already ordered the Sirius and I'm sure the mod bug will bite me a few more times this week.
I definitely want the side markers and perhaps the clear corners, but may have to pass on the tail lights. thanks for the heads up and info.

No problem- Welcome to the 'fest.

My favorite mod so far (other than the Icelink ) is the BMW Bluetooth kit. Gets the most 'oooooh's from passengers .

I was planning on going. That's really nice of you, but I have an 01. I am not MP3 ready. I thought I was going to have to run it through the CD changer.

The icelink is just as compatible with 2001 cars as it is 2005 cars - the install is the same - you plug it into the trunk cd changer port (if you have a cd changer.... you can sell it on ebay, you don't need it now that you have an ipod in your car ).

I could make an official install 'clinic' out of it...

In 2002, E46s received a slight "facelift" - the headlights, turn signals, and taillights are a slightly different shape. "Facelifted" cars are simply 2002 and newer.

There is actually Al and Ed's Autosound in Sherman Oaks, I work very closely with Frank - the store's owner.
