By the tape, i would say you are glueing them on (or silicone etc etc...), but it wont hold on...Bolting it is much safer...even then they tend to fry off at 200Kmh...lol

i can drill some pilot holes and put some srews.. what kind of screws do you recomend that it doesn't look loke a hack install

*edit*

i did prep the plastic with 80 grit sand paper to scuff up the surface for better adhesion on both eyebrow and grill... but better safe than sorry....

drill some small holes and you can just use some sheet metal screws.

i got these ebay lights in back in january.. Rocco at RMP hooked them up along with the fog lights (8000k HID) the shitty thing about the these headlights are the 4 led's used for the halos.... later this summer i'm going to open them up and replace them with the ccfl ones. then get 8000k for the headlights as well.

i'll drill and screw the eyebrows in sunday.. i don't think i'll be hitting 200km/h by then... :)

5 lug swap? If so, that's impressive.

yup you got it.. getting all the parts i need... cleaning them up.. should have them installed in about 2 months i hope. the rims will be installed a little after the swap is complete. I'm re thinking the front lights and grill that i recently did.. and the tail lights... i think what i thought was going to look good doesn't really.. makes the car look a little cheap.. so i'm going to take a loss. find the proper bmw projectors and get the euro grills. as for the tails.. i think i'm going to put the oem ones back on but going to red tint the amber and maybe go for that euro filler plate.

live and learn.

you know about the chrome trim there.. i think the pic that was taken from my cell makes it a alittle out there than what it is. you'd have to see the car in person.

Sounds like you're doing it right; experiment, find out what you like and move on. Anyway, kudos on the 5 lug swap, that's srs bsns right there!

I'll only say this...

Why 8000K for headlights? Don't you plan on using them? You have good eyes?

throw some D's on that bitch!

just bot a caddylake.

could look good with the right spacing and drop.
All the chrome trim haters.. I've heard it so many times as well..."car looks sick but put some shadowline on it"
all I say is... no chance.

I think the 335i is now the only regular 3 series to get chrome. Of course, you could say its because they need to make the lesser 3ers look sportier and don't need to make a 335i look fast because it won't sit still long enough. ;

Chrome is the new shadowline. OMG new sig quote.
