330d - Hooligan video added Page 2. Loving it!

Bought for the daily grind but that hasn't stopped me having some fun with it.

As it arrived:



Rear lights got the all red treatment, gloss black griles fitted:



Changed the shifter for BMW performance part:


Boot spoiler added:


LED sidelight bulbs:


Had a bash at covering the interior trims in alcantara:


Changed the wheels and ditched the run flat tyres:

.... Eisenmann exhaust:



KW Coilovers - by far the best investment made to date. The ride is perfect, with no rubbing and no nasty knocking noises:

.... BMW Performance steering wheel to continue the alcantara theme:


and to bring it bang up to date, some 18" M3 rims that I intend to run as winters. I'm just using them until the Michelin PS2's are spent, then I'll throw some Michelin Alpins on:


It's needing both bumpers painted, I think they were painted in the past - unfortunately it is now flaking off! Once that is done I'll machine polish it. I'll probably change the rear bumper diffuser at the same time.

ebay! It was from Thailand and came painted. The quality of the paint and fit were really very ggod considering it was 85.
A friend had bought an M3 style one for his E92 from the same seller, it was also spot on.

Impressive mods. Looking at your posts, you seems silent performer here.
Car looks sick!

The exhaust and suspension were bought on a whim from MStyle. They had a deal where you were getting 20% off. I'm a little disappointed with the exhaust - I'm used to serious note, my last 2 cars were both Milltek'd, an
R32 and a B7 RS4 - so i'm used to biblical levels of note.

The quality is good, i'm hoping once the DPF is ditched it will sing a little more. It's very wooshy just now - a bit like a jet engine?

Any performance gains are not that noticeable. Looks nice when it's clean! I'm a fan of the size and cut of the pipes.

Thanks! Appreciated.

I'm more active on VW forums, but no longer own a VW....

Think this one will be staying for a while. I'm mighty impressed with it, and a whole lot less stressed out on my daily commute of 140 miles. It eats miles effortlessly!

Incidentally, if anyone likes the look of the steering wheel - one is up for grabs on ebay just now for 195 BIN. Used but looks in good nick.

I changed the discs all round for these:



Piranha black jobbies. I went steady to bed them in but unfortunately they warped badly aafter 1500 miles. I'm back on oem discs which are far better.

Found a couple of photos of the exhaust pre-fitting. Nice bit of kit!

Looks good - can't go wrong with a drop & big wheels.

What did you use on the rear lights? Tint spray or a lamin-x type film?

Car looks great. Not seen those M3 wheels on a normal e90 before. Any side pics?

I like the gear shifter - how much is one of those? Are they easy to fit?

The lights were sprayed and then laquered, flatted and given a quick buff up with the Megs G220.

I'll get some photos at the weekend!
The shifter was around 80 as I remember. Really easy to fit - a firm tug upwards is all it takes!

I've also been looking into this but could not find anything i thought was suitable for the job.. is it a red tint spray or an actual red paint?

Cheers

I used this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RED-TAIL-L...item43b177c79d

and then 3 coats of clear lacquer from halfords. I only tinted the portion of the light that is mounted on the bootlid. I hated the Mitsubishi Carisma-esque look of the reversing lights.



Did my friends 320d too:
