calling all modded se owners

i have decided on keeping my 330d se since i have had no interest in mine(granted not put it on autotrader but ive seen a few 330d's that have been there some time and so think it won't sell).

i'm after 3 mods witha budget of about 200-300

1: rear m3 lip spoiler, i have been looking for months and noticed (there is also a thread about it) a few going for about 50

2: front spoilers/lip (upto about 150 off ebay)

3: different exhaust tips, this is the one i have no idea about. i want some that will blend into the rear bumper rather than looking like to tubes sticking out. i'm hoping with the righ tips the rear might look abit more exciting.

i was contemplating find a m-sport bumper but i think it will be out of budget.

so basically any ideas, links to products and hopefully pics of modded se e90's.

cheers

Good plans.
I guess tails pipes are slightly out for a reason, otherwise smoke can lead deposits on bumper.

Garage List
Lip spoiler will freshen up the bootlid and the eBay ones seem to be of decent quality and good colour matches going by what has been said on here before. Just make sure you use recommended sellers as for every good one there's likely to be 10 cowboys.

Aero lip looks great and I prefer this to the M-Sport bumper. I'm looking into getting one myself but will be doing some slight modifications to it to keep things different. As above, if getting from eBay get some reccommendations on sellers of guys that have bought them here.

As for exhaust tips you'd be best looking at getting a custom one fabricated if you have an exhaust builder local to you. That way you can specify exactly what you want and guarantee a perfect fit.

All should be do'able whithin your budget.

The one thing I hated on my SE was the chrome window trim & grill- so I had them wrapped matt black. Cost 90.

I had a SE, did quite a few mods, including the sport front bumper. Have a look at the pics on this thread for ideas and how the bumpers look.

thanks guys, i also hate the chrome round the windows. mine has now started to discolour. i looked at getting the black window surrounds from a breakers etc but the cheapest i could source them for was 220. i have never thought of wrapping but it sounds like a plan and at 90 well worth it.

CD, thanks for the link. i followed another link in it to the exhaust tips, just what i'm looking for....

keeps the pics and ideas coming though

Love the pipes,where are they from. They are just what I'm looking for, not in your face and classy. I like the slight off set so the match the curve f the bumper

The pipes are actually a complete back box ( silencer ) made by a company called BCS. Have seen them mentioned on here the forum in a couple of posts. Iirc the silencer is 200 new or there abouts. I bought mine on here second hand. Can't say I can here any difference in the sound so it's expensive enough for basically a couple of exhaust tips but there ya go.
