looks good man, congrats, do LCI Projectors with HID's, or get some 4300k HID's for the stock headlights (even though most are saying not to)....

Looks good. I really like the msport package and thats cool it came with exhaust. I would forget all the people saying get lci projectors, yea they look nice, but spending a 1000 per headlight plus ballast and your time to convert it.. not worth it. obviously doesn't affect driving at all, and imo its a waste when that money could be better spent on wheels, tires, suspension or any other driving dynamic upgrades. but yea man, cool pick up.

With a little TLC you'll be fine. I wont repeat what everyone else has already suggested. but you should really do it unless you want to look "gookish" as you say. lol

Thanks for the comments man. Yes, I would never spend that kind of money on headlights, no way. I'm kinda liking the stock rims/tires. I just noticed the back rims are wider than the fronts, never knew the 328's came with this. Suspension is great also, no wheel gap, not sure if the previous owner lowered it?

So what are my options with just getting halos? The halos are already in the headlights, but they are the stock yellow color, what is suggested to just replace the yellow color? Can you run just halos at night or do you need the halogen bulbs? I'm thinking about painting the grille black today but its fricken 90 degrees here and 100 percent humidity.

halos (aka angel eyes) arent headlights, just running lights so no, you cant just run with halos. staggered rims are a bmw thing. most bimmers come with staggered wheels. kinds risky buying a premodded car since theres no way to know how hard the previous owner ran the car, but seeing that its an N52, it probably wasnt run that hard i like the color combo, others are right about the badge and headlights. As for the halo color, get a sex of LUX angel eyes for the halogens and there are a few DIY instal guides on here to show you. Your car is a 3-series LCI or Life cycle impulse car with halogen Headlights so make sure you dont buy the bulbs for lci with xenon. needs some work, but overall nice car.

LUX angel eyes makes a product for LCI halogen angels. Look into them. For the grill, I suggest buying a gloss or matte black one. It doesn't have to be OEM, but BMW does sell black kidney grills.

About running the angels: during the day, the inner ring with the inner daytime light runs. If you put the parking lights on, it runs both halos, but it also runs the turn signal lights orange. If you want to run just the halos during the day, I suggest bringing it into a shop that can do some simple coding for your headlights.

Best

its not an m. M stands for Motorsport. The motorsport division of BMW makes cars separately from regular BMWs. Thye stand out against other Bimmers and the competition. There is a sacred value for the M symbol and should be kept that way. Dont fuck up the sanctity of the M bro, its just not cool. thats probably the only real rule on this forum. ITs especially bad on this post because it quite possibly the furthest from an M car being a 328. My car is M-sport like this and i dont like even the M on the doorsills. The m is special and should be far more limited. Maybe they should do a vin check to prevent people from buying the badge without ownership of an M car. lol

everything on this forum is about cosmetics and aftermarket performance, if youre too cheap to make your car look nice with the right parts, you shoulda bought a civic, not a bmw.

My point was since it did not come with xenons from the factory, to not worry too much about it because it'll cost you way more to retrofit some than if he found a car already equipped with them from the factory. But he bought the car he liked... I was simply stating my opinion on the headlight options.

Some people would rather put 1,000$ into something that may give them a monetary gain, not into a depreciating asset maybe?
