Lens update

So i decided even after wet sanding and trying to fix my original lenses, it wasn't cutting it for me and was ruining the front look of the car...

I like the outcome. What about the E36? Who drives that one?

Smart thinking.

Did the new lens have a bit of a tint? they look pretty dark even though they look clear not on the car sitting on that blanket.

no tint, probably the rest of the car was in the sun and the hood / lights were in a shady area...


I dunno if this is the camera or if the lenses made this much difference, but check out the 2 before pictures (old lens) compared to last one with the new lens..
smudgy and clear





compared to new

That looks great! Had to do the same on my E46 a while back. No matter how much polishing, sanding you do to the old lenses, they'll never look like new. Worth every penny!
