P 5UML - Build Thread

hi guys,

i haven't actually created a mini build thread so to speak so thought id do one now, the car is a E92 325D Msport, Sparkling Graphite & i-drive

here is she looked when i bought her...



first mod was the m3 rear lip spoiler



then came the gloss black grills and number plate...



LED reverse lights...



LED Angels...





i wasnt happy with the stock sound system at all so had the Alpine retrofit done, installed myself!
really happy with the sound quality and the addition of tweeters really made a difference!



had a go at claying the car giving it a good detail...











the day i got my wheels! the Zito 19s wrapped in Falken 452's






then it was my birthday so bought myself a little present



which when installed looked like this...the W7 is an amazing bit of kit!





then i didnt like the silver trim that came with the car, so i wrapped it in carbon







after doing this i kind of liked the carbon theme and went ahead doing little touches around the car...

first came the wing mirrors, full carbon but part painted only leaving the top exposed...



then came the rear performance diffuser...





carbon front splitters which i had moulded on...



then the engine got a custom makeover...







and then i decided to change the spoiler and get the carbon performance one...think it makes the rear look pretty chunky



some completed pics....














thanks for looking guys!

all opinions welcome...

I'm a little wary of the work under the bonnet but everything else looks excellent

That carbon wrapping on the interior trim looks superb. I dread to think what a balls up I'd make of that

Sumil as always, looking awesome bro. Where did you get your new Rear Perf Spoiler from? Also, Any updates on the susp for you? I'll text you tonight about the springs ;-) BTW, I'm digging the LED lights.. which ones do you have and do you have any head on shots in pure daylight? Some pics from a distance would be ideal!!

Great looking. How difficult or easy was it to lamin x the rear lights? If you don't mind me asking how much did it cost to blend them splitters inc painting?

thanks for the comments guys much appreciated

ROW - the laminX i had done for me, but with a heat gun and patience it doesnt seem that tough to do! the only thing is to do the front lights the bumper needs to come off which is a bit of a pain!

the complete front bumper was removed, taken back to primer splitters moulded and then resprayed for around 300/350

all body work was done from Dips @ custom cars

Some lovely mods on there, personally I would have left the mirrors fully bare carbon, but then I love carbon fibre items

How easy was the rear diffuser to fit?

loving the mods, quite interested in the engine cover mod. what did yu use (have you got any links, pm if you prefer)

Also with the heat from the engine does it affect the finish?
