you mean taillights?
if yes, I'm going to change them soon.
if you are talking about front orange bulbs in clear corners
I like them better than ugly burned out blue.

The moldings are great, sweet looking !

I would install clear taillights and tint if I were you and I would probably lower it a little more !

anyway, it's still sharp the way it is !

Cool

hey, i am not a big fan of painted moldings.... i think it makes the car look a lil off....because there's less contrast in it.....looks kinda cheap....but it looks good still

it was painted real good, I paid $600 just for mouldings, so it is not just some cheap looking spray can, it looks like it was right from the factory.

moldings

Vlad,

The car looks sweet. I don't know if you remember, but I was looking at that car before you bought it! I even sat in it! haha. I'm not kidding. Anyhow. Personally, I would have left the black moldings. I agree with E36Freak - the contrast is nice. Also the same reason why I've left my original orange lights on. I know, I know, people will disagree. But, hey - it's a personal thing right?

Again. Car looks nice. Silver is sweet isn't it. Arctic silver like mine!

clear corners were on the car when I got it.

moldings, I can honestly say I miss my black ones.


I don't think you ever told me about that you were looking at my car at executive. Why didn't buy it? Did u find any problems?

while back

No. No problems at all. I didn't take it out for a spin or anything. I really liked it. But honestly, I wanted something a little newer, and something backed with a warranty and lower kms. So I went to the Stealer oops.....dealer and bought one. Certified series. Maranello. And I've used my warranty!!!! Will use it to my full advantage.! How are those guys at Executive? Looked a little shady to me?!?!! I could be wrong.

well executive was good, no problems with them, except I could use a warranty once. But anything else was good.
