Black on terracotta build

Hi everyone ! I'm new here figured I'd post my build so far ...i sold my ML Mercedes to a buddy of mine so i needed a replacement i really loved my ML so i was trying to find a nice ml500 but that was not going well, i then looked into e46 xi wagons and i loved the idea but i just dont really like e46's and the e53 was out of the question as i have enough fun replacing suspension parts once every Wednesday on my e38, so i began a search for an e83 x3. after quiet a few months i found what seemed like the perfect one for me with beautiful Terracotta interior! went and looked at it and hated it at first as he was asking too much imo. so i told him to let me know if he wants to get rid of it for cheap and drove 2 hours home haha. so a few days later i get a call saying he wants to unload the car as the sunroof is now inop and stuck open i negotiate and set a price and leave in the morning to pick the car up. fortunately for me this gentlemen was not very intelligent and didnt want to take the 15 mins it took me to re sync the roof after replacing the battery so problem solved on to pix

at the guys house



nice big sunroof thought that was really cool



at home, plate delete



deleting the hideous 3.0i badge

Here's a small diy I did on bf.c basically all I did was cut the sealant around the lens popped the old lens out and used some nice RTV to re seal them. The infinity ones just come right out they aren't sealed in, you either need to buy a whole set of infinity fogs and take them apart to get the lens or do so at the yard, that's what I did. The sealing method I used worked great and I have had no issues with them what so ever


Cool x3 mod
