Today, I’m going to write about this BMW E36 car with side air vents. The owner of this car just installed these air vents that you can see in the pictures below to see if they’re going to look good on his car or not.

While, I’m not a fan of none standard accessories that I believe in many cases will make the car look ugly and ricey to say the least, this time it was different. Now, I’m sure that you all are going to disagree with me, but I think the side air vents should look great on our BMW E36 cars, but NOT THIS ONE.

If I were to install such air vents, I would’ve bought something not shinny like these and installed them correctly on my car (please notice that these were installed in the opposite directions).

If these were black and without any chrome on them, I think they would’ve looked great on the car. What do you guys think?

    There was a Chrysler 300C at a custom shop I used to work at…We were doing some complicated work on the car (suicide rear doors, lambo kit for the fronts, candy paint, custom interior, etc…) Anyway the guy had a set of those cheapo stick-on porthole style vent things on the front fenders. We convinced him they looked like shit so he got a pair of the chrome vents found on the sides of the new escalades and suburbans…we cut a hole and mounted them in each fender, then molded them flush with the metal… my point? A little extra detail goes a long way, and the bodywork only cost him about $300…

    @Ken Edmundson: That’s exactly my point … don’t go cheap if you’re going to do this.

    @mgr 328i csport: I would go with “Yes, I hope so”. Waiting for that Matt 😉

    @Ken Edmundson: I like the look of these headlights. They give the car a modern look although they are low quality.
