New TiAg e90 member :)

Any ideas/suggestions is greatly appreciated. Also thinking about getting 15% or 20% tint, not sure between the two though.

mods so far:
-black grill
-chrome exhaust tips
-debadged

Car looks good so far! I would do suspension, wheels and a CF front lip. Something subtle.

Just some quick suggestions: M-Tech/Msport front and rear bumper, Performance Exhaust, debadge, definitely wheels, M3 spoiler or CF performance spoiler, and I'll say 15% tint.

Nice! I got tiag too! So hard to match when installing any aesthetic body parts. But I'm looking forward to seeing this complete!
Tint do 20% all around! It'll look nice if you ever get your roof vinyl'd gloss black.

Is it me or is your drivers side door a different color?

Haha yes I agree with you 100%, tiags are hard to match up with but when you do it right boy do they look good. ill keep posting everything I mod. I want to get it vinyl'd but I think ill save that for after i get my rims.

I was thinking the exact same thing haha but no its the same color as the rest of the car, it mustve been my iPhone since I used it to take these pictures

Congrats.

I was also thinking your driver's door appears to have been painted.

Quite funny as I also debadged and added tips to my 325i Montego just this month. And my previous car was a TiAg E90 with halogens as well.

IF you don't wanna spend a lot on mods, my suggestion for modding:

- Style 162s wheels with 15mm spacers in the rear
- suspension drop - Mtech or performance?
- M3 lip spoiler (EBay for 59 bucks, you can't beat that deal, search a thread for it!)
- OEM splitters for front bumper
- Blacklines of Depo LEDs
- 30% tint (more transparent, not too black)
- if you can, respray the driver's door or at least have them blend colors on rear door and front wing as it stands out. TiAg paint sucks like that, hard to match.

That would make it a nice and classy TiAg for little money

OR go all out with Msport bumpers, drop, 19s, etc

You read my mind with the list of mods haha. You think 20% tint is too dark? Im also starting to notice the drivers door A LOT now since people started mentioning it, ill definitely try to get that fixed a soon as possible.

Before you respray, you could also try to find on a junkyard the whole new door. I don't know if it might cost less or more, but if color would be perfect match - go for it. May be even trade the doors. You want OEM paint if you can, sprayed by robot at same angle etc. All these resprays in booths are OK but not OEM and if done on big parts you have high likelihood of seeing a difference.
