Silver with black grills?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure there's quite a few on here, but more importantly, where's that pic taken? :)

Kenilworth castle ?

Cheers Cosmic, I think I'm going to go for it. I'm suprised at their not being many for a facelift coupe on eBay, but loads for pre facelift. On the facelift listings, it says "LCI" what does that stand for?

I think it stands for "life cycle impulse".

Your your local dealer and get the genuine bmw performance ones! Look same as the trims on the car and fit really well!

Have a look in my gallery, mines are wrapped in carbon.

Also what colour have you had the wheels done in?

Black or gunmetal cant tell, Need to get my CSL's refurbed, I like that colour against the silver.

Cheers, Just ordered some.. If i don't like them i can always swap back :)

I had the wheels done about a week ago, They're a dark grey colour, not quite black, slightly darker than gun metal

Looks good, I had the same problems when debating a black grill, I didn't like it when it was on so opted to colour code the outside.

That definitely works with that colour, Not sure It would work as well with silver though

How hard is it to do that headlight job?

How hard is it to do that headlight job?

Depends on you. You can use heat gun/hairdryer or the oven version.

You have to Preheat the oven 250' F (130 degrees)

Place the headlight onto an aluminum sheet or baking tray.

Set timer to 15 minutes

Place the headlight into the oven

Watch the progress, make sure the headlight doesn't start to melt for some reason, 250' is not hot enough to melt the headlight.

Once the timer runs out, take out the headlight with the mittens or something to protect you from the heat, IT WILL BE HOT!!

Start to wiggle the screwdriver in between the clear and black parts of the headlight. Make sure to unclip the clips between the pieces. THEY DO BREAK EASILY SO GO CAREFUL!

Pull the headlight lens apart from the base and you can paint.
