Hey,
I just installed some parts that I ordered from Revi on e46fanatics and I wanted to post em.
Chrome gauge rings, CF bezel (goes around gauges) and CF Kamei-style eyelids.
Comments are welcome. I had to shrink the pics so they may look crappy
BTW, I'm hooked on CF now. *drink*

You'd need a CF hood for those eyelids to not look strange. You know what you have to do...

I'm not sure about the eyelids, but they actually look pretty good in person. I got them for 50 shipped so I jumped on em. I could always paint them...
As for the gauge rings and CF overlay, I can't stop smiling everytime I get in.
Keep the comments comin'
BTW, I bought all of this stuff from Revi Motorworks off e46fanatics.com (sponsor)

nooooo way
the hyperwhite indicators are 10 million times than the amber ones.... :puke:
Don't tell me to change something, I like it and I'm gonna keep it. Keep the criticisms to yourself. A simple "not my taste" is fine.

I'm a young guy so I don't want orange crap on my car (bumper reflectors)
I want a clean, fast look. Sorry if your taste doesn't fit my car's description.

Unless I have altezza rears and a spoiler than can mistaken for a shopping cart, I'm NO way near being a ricer.

PS, if you saw my interior, you'd want it...

spray paint the bulbs white or silver... that way u dont see the blue when they're off, but they'll still blink white (maybe slightly dimmer).... makes a big difference, car will look better

you do realize those "blue turns" light up hyper white, right?.. (see my signature)...they don't light up blue. The blue glass filters out the red/orange/yellow part of the spectrum and lets the white with a blue tint to filter through.

thank you justin for clearing that up...it would be illegal if it lit up blue :idea:
I remember learning the colour spectrum and filters in chemistry :P

thanks superman for the comments - not sure either...don't think everyone's had their fare share of girls lately
I like the eyebrows...that's why I bought em *th-up*

To each his own right?
