Got me a e36

Yes i know this should be in the "rides" section but theres also questions i have.

As of saturday morning i became an owner of a Silver 94 325IS. (5 spd of course)
Ive been saving up/looking for a nice e36 for about 6-7 months now and found this puppy
She's only got 150,560kms on it, the leather is in great condition for a older e36, and it came stock, except for a AC sway bar (w/e there called), and some 2002 325IS rims (17's)

(it is a IS,,,the emblem part just got jacked up)

Alright please let me know of what you think..and what i should do

And now my questions
1. I need new front lights..i have issuse about not being able to see. I live in a foresty/tree'y area so it gets super dark at night. I want a pair of those super bright ones (xeone's,HID, or w/e there called)

2. As you can see my side skirts are black. Can i paint those? or do i need to buy new ones and get them painted?

3. This ones for Justing_e36. Angels eyes.Give me some suggestions( ive read your other post but am still confuesed on the best that last)

4. I have a sorta starting problem. It stakes a few secs to start. but if i shut it off go into a store for 30 mins or less and come back it starts instantly. but if im gone any longer it takes a few secs again. The dealership did run it out of gas when i was there. could that be a problem?

Alrighty Thanks for looking..and now my car match's my screen name

Chad!

Clean e36! get those sides painted body color.
You should check your battery it may have low voltage which would result in low electrical current to the DME main relay and fuel pump.. which is what happened to my old e30, it always took that extra couple seconds to start.

1+3. buy euro ellipsoids and have ccfl angel eyes/HID kit installed

2. you can do one of two things. Strip the rock guard on the rocker panels and reveal the stock paint underneath, or go buy OEM skirts and have them installed....I say oem because that's the way I went and I have not had any problems

That's a lot of money for a 94, I just got my 95 318i for $7800 with 134,000km on it. I know my car is lower but over 5g's more, crazy.
