BMW E46 330ci to M3 SMG CS Alpine White 2 Conversion project
Please read me...
E46 330ci (05/2001) converting to M3 SMG CS (03/2006)..
I did it my own except bodying and painting. I hope this video help
everybody to understand how this conversion could be done.
Lets make it clear, I made the conversion in the summer of 2010, and i
started collecting parts in the beggining of 2010. I tried to sell my car
but nobody cears to buy it, also i could buy a cheap m3 for 22000 eur plus,
so i had to take the decision and make it my own.
Also, summer 2010 taxis for my car was 800 euro, Now it is 1100+ 800=1900
Unleaded 95 , 2010 costed 0,87 euro per litter, and now 2012, 1.84 euro per
This period in Greece, you can buy m3 for 7000 euro, and nobody cears to
buy this car this time.

Replacing a BMW Daytime Running Light
If your dashboard indicator tells you a light is out it may be the Halo /
DRL / Angel eye light that is burned out. It's that cool set of rings
around each headlight. Mark takes you through all the steps and tricks it
takes to change the light yourself if you're the kind of person that likes
to save a couple hundred bucks (Canadian)
