My Graphite e90 320d - style 95 content

so after selling the vw mk5 golf (black, gti kit on landrover wheels) i started looking at a few possible new cars but settled on this clean, standard e90 320d as i wanted to stay diesel for now.

I drove the car mainly standard as shown below for a month or so and enjoyed how comfortable and nice it was to drive

then the inevitable happened and things where purchased

set of simple wind deflectors and then some fk highsports, alot of e90s local seem to use msport or eibach springs or other coilover kits but i thought these highsports were a little better and meant i could play about with how the car sat compared to set of springs on the wheels i had bought because i didnt know how they were going to fit, and the last thing i wanted was bust arches. Im very happy with them so far, very comfortable and easily worth the extra

i spent a good while looking for the right wheels and finally found a set, i had them fully refurbed thanks to jonny at springhill body repair and he done a great job on them

19x9 et 24
19x10 et 24

i was never 100% sure if theyd fit with the drop i wanted without arch work with the low offsets but i took the chance and with some strecth i got them on ok, i also researched and had seen other e90s on here with them, so i was confident all would be ok

some stretch on the rears

also had my reg transferred onto it from the golf, nothing but hastle lol

i then bought a full msport kit for the car and had it fitted along with a csl style spoiler smoothed into the bootlid, i think it turned out well but does seem to look more agressive in person. Black kidney grills helped the front end a good bit too

minus a few little pieces such as the front bumper washer jet covers which are missing in the photos but are at paint now so shouldnt be far away

I have stainless twin exhaust bought for it which i need to get fitted, smaller metro plates thanks to trevor which i may fit sometime and ive a few other things id like to try which il update on here

big thanks to jonny and the lads at springhill body repair, moneymore who done the bodywork, their time and attention they spent on the car

its also going to adrian for a detail in the next few weeks once i get the covers etc back from paint

thanks for looking
