Ideas/Suggestions for the next facelift

Post by petroscf » Wed Jul 28, 2010 4:32 pm

This is my car's current look.

Options to play with are:
-The car's old single headlights (NOT TO BE SOLD, so don't even think of it :lol: )
-The "new" BBS spoiler that just arrived (from Mark!!)
Not currently existing options (but possibility to purchase):
-Clear front indicators
-E30 smilies

I am about to go for option 2 (- the foglights, + a BBS spoiler in the current car's colour)
Your ideas-suggestions are welcome!

i would go for the clear indicators + the bbs spoiler + angel eyes - foglights
i would keep the foglights if they could be moulded into the bbs spoiler
i think most foglights on e21s look a bit odd

+ 1, i think those lights look very nice on your car petros!!! fit a spoiler and clear indicators and you see a big difference...

well I am probably going for this solution, (BBS, angels and no foglights)
I think they cannot be mounted on the BBS without drilling (which I don't want)

clear indicators, single headlights, no fog lamps, different wheels, and lower it. or that but keep your angel eye headlamps and quad setup, its pretty cool imo.
