Euro E36 BMW OEM Chrome Interior door-pulls installed (pics)

This was one of my favorite mods...cheap, easy to do and fun as well. Plus there is not alot of American E36ers who do this mod to their rides...so do it and you'll stand apart from the pack of usual tail pipes and M3 bumper modders!

DIY coming when I have time to write it up...but enjoy the pictures
cost+ $32.99 per handle on EBAY or $37.00 at your local BMW dealership (chances are the dealership won't have them stocked, they will have to order them...so be patient).

Plus installation is a breeze and about 30 minutes. NOTE that the front and rear door handles are DIFFERENT and have DIFFERENT PARTS NUMBERS and MUST BE STATED when ordering.

looks good. I dunno but I think it'd be better complimented with black interior.

the handles look good, but the black sticks out....

By the way, congrats on the saggy glove box, I never got mine fixed

They are good...I also put in leather seats in the front as well.

I agree with the black of the handles sticking out. So I was thinking of painting the black trim tan...so that I could get this effect..see below , I just don't know how to do that...

Hey Del how do you get the black pieces that surround your door handles back on, mine fell off and I can't get them back in, do you push and then slide or something?

That car is I think the 2005 E46 330i.
or I could be the 2006 E90 330i model...(I forget)
current BMWs have the window countrols on the front doors...

Del, you need to get the OEM interior wood trim. You really barely were driving an BMW when you got your car: no fogs, steel wheels, no leather or wood, 4-cylinders, how did you survive this long?

I really don't know...
but what I loved most about my 318i when I put down the 5g's for it was that it has so much potential....

I've really enjoyed making something of this car...
I like modding...
In fact, the next owner of my car is gonna be so freakin' spoiled...
an 318i E36 with 330i E90 interior luxury modifications: chrome trim, rear shade, GPS navigation, HID Xenons, new sports leather, footwell lights...
The only thing I'm missing is I-Drive (yuck), heated powered seats(yuck!), and DSC/ACC...
