If you do it right, the waiting is the longest part. Waiting for paint to dry and cure over night.

i haven't done this on the M3 yet, but i did it several times to my previous car ( smart car ). it's definitely a weekend project, because you want time for the paint to cure and the adhesive seal to cure. also, that's cool you guys are having success with the silicon seal but it's not exactly the route i'd take. keep in mind every time you bake your headlights, you will lose a little adhesive. what i would do, is just buy and replace a whole new role of adhesive. you can get a tubed roll of adhesive at the dealership, depending on the dealer. then, you will have a fresh, thick, tight seal after your project.

Personally I found the wait for the paint to dry the easy part. The hard part is opening these up. They won't fit in any normal oven so it's all by hand with a heat gun. That part SUCKED! Almost a year since and my fingers still hurt just thinking about it. Well worth the trouble just don't ever rush this mod.

Yea. You need about 8 hours of drying time MINIMUM. At least 30 min drying between coats. You wanna make sure all the fumes are gone and the paint cures so you don't get condensation
