So here it is guys....my blue 99 Bmw 328i.....!! Like i said i just got it, needs some minor things here and there.....!! Lighting, rims, tint....!!

Would love some suggestions on what ideas i should do and where to get product from.....remember i live in CANADA, so if someone on here has a parts shop, parts and product need to be shipped to canada!!


Let me know what u guys think.....!! Any suggestion or opinion is great!!

08-19-2009, 11:19 PM

08-19-2009, 11:23 PM
ofcourse, but most of us order from the u.s

for oem parts try getbmwparts.com (low prices all day everyday) just beware of shipping costs

a few canadian sponsors: asp tuning, bimmer specialist... etc


08-19-2009, 11:24 PM

the exact website is www.getbmwparts.com ???

yea the majority of the site is canadian and there is actually a fairly large following in windsor
we get together monthly and go out

Nice new ride, congrats!

Yeah, the majority of us live in the GTA, with others scattered all over Ontario and Canada in general.

Nothing wrong with your colour... but if you don't like it, why'd you buy it? Was the car itself too good to pass up?

If I were you, my first order of business would be getting a rondel back on the hood of your car (the logo), and it looks like the "328" on the trunk lid is misplaced. It might have been removed at some point and put back in the wrong place (way to close to the outer edge of the trunk, and too high up).

for parts check out www.bimmerspecialist.com or autopartsway.ca

both local canadian sites and offer good prices on shipping

u know ur stuff "FEL", wow....
the numbers "328" were taken off....i had to get the trunk redone....apparently the body guy didn't put them on right....that needs to be done....!! The emblem in the front i gotta find one some where for cheap, otherwise its $45.00 at the dealer, which aint too bad.
I got a smoken steal price on this car, an i couldn't turn it down....when i paid to get it redone, i wish i would paid extra and got it done in a color i wanted....!! too late now..!!

i need some rims now and windows tinted....than it might start looking a little better....!! still i would like to see someone that has this same car and has it done up so i can steal some ideas....LOL

Haha, good stuff man. A deal is a deal, so make the best of it!

$45 from the dealer really isn't bad, you won't get one of the same quality for much less than $35 off ebay.

I haven't seen too many E46's in that colour with a lot of work on them, but if I ever see any I'll send them your way. Good luck with the wheel hunt. Just please stay well away from chrome... haha. Tint would also look good, and funny enough with that colour, you could go light or dark and it would still look good.

08-20-2009, 06:23 PM
why not chrome...?? i think this is the only color i would do chrome on....!!
i called today and i might get my whole car re-done in white....!
anyone agree or disagree and why or why not??

08-20-2009, 06:23 PM
but if i decide to keep this color, with tinted windows i think black or gunmetal with a chrome lip!!

08-20-2009, 07:13 PM
What does everyone think of this idea....!!
tinted windows with black rims and chrome lip!!!

If that is original paint job and you dotn have rust spots, why ruin it.

I think all black rims with a black deep dish.

08-20-2009, 10:56 PM
Congrats on the car....i actually like the steal blue, get some clear tails and fronts which will automatically make your car look newer..and then some wheels that are silver in color...bimmers and chrome just dont match..

Heres some motivation for you, not an e46, but its steal blue and should do the job for now..(those wheels are M parallels 18s)

08-21-2009, 12:48 PM
That looks bad ass.....!! lol thanks pal

i gotta get some new headlights, fender markers and new tails....than tint, than rims....by the the look of the car will change completely!! I THINK!! i HOPE!!

My cousin has these rims in a 16" for cheap..... 400 bucks with 3 month old tires.... guys, yes or no??

08-21-2009, 09:02 PM
Is it Ameican car? Why not projectors headlights and fogs. It's a 328i top of the line in 99-00.

08-21-2009, 09:03 PM
where can i get them from??

your cousins rims are good for winter. if you wanna get laid dont use them in summer.

08-22-2009, 11:24 PM
congrats on the buy. its a nice ride. IMO black rims....all black rims would look pretty good. silver would look okay too.

08-25-2009, 10:33 AM
damn it....than what should i use in the summer "Dado 540" ?? lol
