They're not hard... double sided tape or screws

Ohh... and if you do a lot of driving (like me) get some stone guard and put them on cause they will chip!!

Yea good idea. Can I get that sorta stuff from like Canadian Tire, or Do I have to goto specialty shops?

LOL, well you have to look at them this way, most of the top part will be under the hood, and that part with the circular grooves is the eyelid part.

Hey, I am pushing the same car as you!!
I have a 540i E34 (black) and I blacked out my grill too! Looks soooo good... Prrr...*love*

Yeah, anyways... Umm, I was wondering where you got your hands on those eyelids!! I was also wondering if it is possible for me to get my sticky fingers on a pair if I wanted!?
Hehe...
:P

Anyways... I have a suggestion for you..
Replace the grill on the car with a 540 grill... Its MUCH wider and looks more aggressive... Places the car in a more aggresive position!

So... msg me back on where you got those and how much when you get this... Thanks bro..
BTW I am new on the board... I was part of teutonic (another toronto based BMW club) before and now am just looking around for what else there is...

Yeah, well thats about all... OHHH Yea and check this kit out @ bavarianauto.com The add on to the 540i E34 is sick... I think its nicer than the racing dynamics piece!

You can see some pictures of a car with it on @....

I cant change my grill, if I did that, I'd have to change my hood too cuz the bulge wouldnt match. Also my eyelids wouldnt fit. :(

Which kit are your talking about? The RD kit is still my favorite, u gotta watch out that it isnt made outa fiberglass. If its the DTM lip, yeah I was thinking about that.. It looks good on black cars, but when you see it on brighter cars, the curves in the lip doesnt look flush with the rest of the car.

Darn.... Well, just stick with what you got I guess for the grill... Its still cool!:cool:

So... Where did you get those eyelids? They are sick!
Also one other question... Why is it that I should watch out to make sure that it isnt fiber glass?

Later... See you on the streets...

Because fiberglass is a rigid substance, they get mashed up from stone chips really badly.

Haha, Believe it or not, we went to Canadian tire, and bought paint that matched my car, the match isnt the best, but it'll do. Then we just sprayed clear coat on them.
