Oooooooooooooooooooooooooft Stevie, I've been hearing rumours of this White CSL all the way in Asia, and by **** its true. You've got some nuts to do that, but hat off to you, its worked!

But and a VERY BIG BUT! You STILL have the 'C5L' number plate! I got nailed for that 3 days before I went away in April there so had to change it back to 'C5 L'! Ragin to say the least but yes, looks good in the white.

Let me know how you got on with the indicators as I got mine from ebay and have the details at hand if you need.

See you soon!

I used Richie, too.  His user name here if you want to PM him is, surprisingly, "Richie"!!!

Just a little heads up when I got the clear fronts on mines they had different bulb holders from the original (offset to opposite). So as far as I know with the E46 it could be either! then I got the projector ones and they are the same as the original ones.  So if you do have the wrong ones let me know I've a couple of spare bulb holders!!!

Hope this helps

Oops - lets hope they're OK. I've ordered the ones Stephen recommended, but he used to have an e46 coupe so I'm presuming they're the same ones - if not, they're getting returned  

Don't point out the side repeaters, it never stops, help!!

Thanks for the heads up, but knowing me I'd make a hash of it, so probably safer getting the silver bulbs

Very good shout - I never noticed that before!
