Congrats and welcome!

I am intrigued by the x5 wheels as well. I've always liked the a4's, mainly the b5 and b7's. They were always the 'other' car I was looking at before I bought my previous e36 m3, then e90 330i respectively. But the BMW always won out. Plus I think Audi's marketing has a reverse effect on me. Aside from the increase in speed, how does the over all drive compare?

Nice job on the trim, it took me 3 years to cover up my wood trim. Just got a CF wrap done last week. Def get some OEM blacklines as others stated, makes a huge difference on black e90's. Maybe suspension down the road as well to stiffen up the non-sport suspension. Enjoy!

It's a 1970 Pontiac GTO. It's my dads baby. He has owned it since 1973. It is immaculate and SO much fun to drive.

It's a totally different beast over all. I have been driving a Quattro Audi for the past 7 years. This is my first RWD vehicle. It's much different in almost every aspect.

I am extremely impressed with the throttle response and torque of the BMW.

Thanks man I'm really happy with the way the trim turned out. I love working with vinyl. In the future I plan to try to wrap my car myself. I think it would be a really fun challenge.

And yes I agree on the suspension. Right now it is on Koni yellow's/H&R springs. I have some KW V1 coilovers on the way from a member on here. Those paired with the Dinan sway bars should handle very nice.

No sport package = more money to spend on making the car how YOU want it.

M Sport suspension is nowhere near as good as a set of quality coilovers from KW, Bilstein or Eibach.

Have a read of this for something even better than the usual suspension modifying options CLICKY

With the mods the car already had on it when I purchased it washed out the fact that the car doesn't have sport package in my eyes.

The only things that I am missing are seats and a steering wheel. I will be doing an M wheel and Recaro's anyways. I planned on doing coils anyways which I have already ordered and the car came with Koni/H&R's which is better than the stock sport suspension already.

I wouldn't say that constitutes a fail lol. I'm not new to the modding world. I did plenty of research before I purchased this car.

Buying it with the procede= BIG WIN props bro! Saved yourslef 1k lol
As for sporta pack, its not only about the seats/steering wheel. Or suspension, it gives your car an oil cooler which is needed when boosting over stock, I highly recommend retrofitting one, not too expensive theres a diy on it lool it up!

i think is interesting you bought it from the stealership with a PROcede in it? but hey thats awesome. Shiv is a good friend of mine and i finally traded my e46 m3 in for a 335i so i can get the PROcede...

and your right, the power in this thing is insane!!

A little update...

I went back to the stock blue and white roundels from the carbon fiber ones that came on the car.

I got rid of my ugly amber corners today. I used some gloss black vinyl to do so. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

I also put some blue lamin-x on my fog lights. I'm not sure if I really like it but it was cheap and can easily be reversed. I think it will look much better when I grt my summers on and get my coilovers in.



I also stopped by the place that is going to powder coat my summer setup am decided on a color. So excited for spring!
