Smile E36 Chrome Gauge rings.....

Well, I put these on a while ago but I never took pics of them after I installed them. They add a nice touch.

Yep, these ones are plastic, but suprisingly they don't look cheap and have a nice finish

I have them too and think they're a very nice addition to the interior. Simple yet classy.

Cosmic I got them from www.bimmian.ca

Yep, they are bling bling. I got them off ebay.
Mine didn't have 3M adhesive tape, so I used apoxy and managed to to get any over spill, so it turned out great!

Looks good, Ive heard that the dash pods are a PITA to take out, at least in the Z3 models. The wheel doesn't tilt or telescope, so it has to come off to get at the dash pod.

Jay,
How do you like the Silverstars? Would you suggest them, and what kind of light do they emit (Blue-ish, or just bright)?

Thanks,

Bill

I like the silverstars, they are decent bulbs, don't expect HID quality, but I am glad I am have them over stock. No it is not a bluish colour, more of a bright white with a small hint of blue.

The gauge panel is easy to take out once you know how to do it....Mine doesn't have tilt (which I think is rediculous for a 98 BMW) which always makes it a bit more tough.
Jay
