LTBMW l E90 335i LCI Rear Conversion

Recently some people have been asking for pics of my car, in terms of where it's at now with modding.

I just took some really quick and somewhat random shots with my iPhone and thought I would make a thread so I could share with everyone, love or hate it.

All mods were professionally done at LTBMW. (actually, the LCI rear conversion was just done yesterday ) Much thanks to Long and Ivan for seeing everything through and LTBMW as a whole for doing such a great job.

Once again, I apologize in advance for the crappy cell phone pics. Once I have more time, I'll try to update with some better ones... hopefully.

Mod list as of 1/18/2012:
-LED angel eyes
-LTBMW M3 front w/ custom 3D molded lip
-Mtech rear
-Duke Dynamics CF performance diffuser (thanks Mike!)
-BavarianX smoked LED sidemarkers
-Glossy black roof wrap
-Karbonwerke CSL style trunk (thanks Darren!)
-LCI rear conversion taillights
-ST Coilovers
-JB3 PnP
-Muffler Delete
-Resonator Delete
-Matte black grills
-BMS dual cone intake
-Shadowline Trim
-20mm spacers (front)
-15mm spacers (rear)
-ModMy3 LED interior lighting kit
-LED trunk lights
-Titanium tint all around except for windshield

Q:Why are you running stock style 162s???
A: One, because I'm actually undecided as to what aftermarket wheels I would like to put on, and two, because I already have a deep hole in my wallet. If you guys have any suggestions/recommendations as to what you think would look good, please leave a comment!

UPDATED MODS AS OF 1/28/12 (I'll try to put up some pics as soon as I can...?):
-19" VMR V710 in Matte Black (thanks Long!)
-Carbon Fiber interior trim

Future planned mods:
-Vanguard V2 Exhaust

Anyway.. now to the pics!

Before this week:





The product of this week:
Please do note that in this picture specifically, the trunk was not closed all the way yet, so the fitment of the lights does appear to be a tad more off than it should.

I really don't know why the door is open in this one... sorry, I was in a bit of a rush I suppose





Questions, comments,suggestions, recommendations, love, hate, all are welcome!! Hope you guys enjoy, and thanks for looking!

Regardless it looks great!!

That lip is pure awesome. I think it is carbon fiber or frp. The molded look is unrivaled. Thanks for posting pics of your ride. I would tint the ambers though. cheap mod but would look amazing on your ride.

Judging by your CCW sticker, you should get CCW's.

And I say ditch one of the LTBMW advertisements in the rear. One is enough, 2 looks like you're trying too hard.

Looks great overall, can't wait to see the wheels

Thank you! Hopefully I'll be able to find a good set of wheels to slap on there soon

Haha, thank YOU for all of the compliments! Yeah, tinting the amber is actually what I was looking into next, aside from the wheels of course.

CCW's are veeerryyyyy sexy wheels, however they're a bit out of my budget for now... can't let the hole in my wallet get too steep perhaps in the future?? and actually, I never thought about the whole advertisement thing in the rear... interesting perspective haha, I'll take that into consideration. thanks for the input!

actually, I was originally going to keep the blacklines and just find a pre-lci csl trunk as you said but the more I looked at the LCI taillights, the more they grew on me... but you're right regardless. CSL trunk + blacklines look sick as well!

also... I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE SELLING YOUR CAR! you have such a sick set up, slammed on those CCWs!

You were at LTBMW and rolled out with stock wheels? 1:43 am right now...go back to the shop NOW.

I'd start with some VMR V710...or....some LC818...or look for used Advan RS...

hmm... really?? I don't see it the only thing I can think of is that in the pic where the car is still inside of LTBMW, the trunk wasn't actually fully closed yet - it was just put down. other than that... the taillights are OEM and the trunk fitment is 100% so I'm not sure??

No offense but I think the LCI looks half-ass. Love the lci look, but the trunk lights match up horribly with the tail lights on the body at the bottom, looks aftermarket and cheap. Just my .02

I circled where I think is mis-alignment.

Could be you didnt close the trunk tightly.
If you did, it's an easy fix though.

if you open the trunk, you'll see 2 plastic extension screws, I dont know what they're called, but they adjust how your trunk sits.
In your case, screw them in a bit so your trunk can sit a tad further down & the tail lights will align perfectly.

WOWOWOW!! looks unreal! absolutely positively luv wut u've done so far... keep it up!
n ya get the trunk adjusted asap.

also since u've spent all this time n money 2 make ur e90 look like this, u should do the same 4 ur wheels.
imo its the most important n difficult decision, so take ur time n dont settle 4 less.

All CSL trunks are off a tiny bi like that.

Darren, JZ, Frankie, Mine.

The Duke Dynamics one seems to fit a little better?

Here is Darren's

Unfortunately, I have yet to see ANY aftermarket trunk fit like OEM. The authentic Amuse Ericsson trunk is the only one I've seen to fit properly.

Anyway, just need that set of wheels to finish off the car! I wish you could've kept James's old set of wheels!!!
