I'm in two minds whether to attack mine with 3 stick paint chip sets as it can make more of a mess than an honest scratch and I can't imagine how much a local body shop would charge.
How deep/bad are the scratches?

too deep to cut / compound out, too shallow to have gone to primer.

They were on when I got it, the whole car is 99% perfect, so just a few light scratches and chips mainly on the bonnet and boot. It's metallic, so will have a clear coat. Been using Meguiar's ultimate compound which is top coat friendly

For stone chips and scratched i used this guide Hope it helps! not that hard to do i got various compounds (polishing,rubbing,super fine) and a tiny brush,car had done alot of motorway miles :'(

As for the indicators....I'd go for the projector "look" ones,they look sick in my opinion better than smoked
something like this

I actually used to have a set like that, once I started getting water leaking into water of them I just went with the stock style smoked corners and I think they look much better, just my opinion

Just thought i would check in.
Chris from Manchester/Bolton
Bmw 318ti sport individual.
Had loads of Bmw in the past and must say the little 318ti is a great car.
Just needs more power, maybe a turbo will do the job somewhere down the line,
Customary piccys.
Hope you like the car.




Cheers

Tricky if you ever need to replace any panels, though, no?

Hello Swifty07

What age of compact ?

If it looks like ones above its a E36 but the E36 is really a E30/E36 mix

Triangle light on rear and 2000 + good chance its a e46

Plenty of .pdf manuals on ebay

This is a e46
