First Mod: Blackline Tail Lights

Hey guys, just joined the forums and wanted to show you what I've been up too.

Picked up a 2006 330i from a Nissan dealership back in August.


First mod I had to do was move the license plate. Picked up a GMG No Holes LPB and mounted it.


Next were a set of Blackline Tail Lights I got for a great deal from 'Aperture'.
Before:

After:


There car is in need of a good detail and wash which I'll take care of tomorrow. Hopefully I can get some better pics up by the end of the week.

Next mod will definitely be painting the chrome window trim and grills.

Only had them on a few days, no problems so far. I actually swapped all of the stock hardware from the stock lights onto the Blacklines though.

Thank you sir. Was thinking about painting the badge black before I decide to take them off or not. As for a new bumper, definitely a mod down the road, not a huge fan of the stock bumper haha.

Definitely off to a good start. Reminds me of mine when I first got it (I think that was my first mod too -- a few more since then ). Get used to a LOT of washing to keep it looking clean. They look amazing when freshly washed, but "freshly washed" only last for an hour or two, then it starts looking dirty again

Thanks! There's white piece that holds the bulbs on the stock tail lights, I just unclipped it and swapped it over to the Blacklines.
