Yeah. You should make a thread about your car with updated pictures.

How did you get lamin-x to bend around your side blinkers? I once tried red Lamin-x to my reverse light but hated it because Lamin-x is so thick and you could clearly see all the edges.
This time i used vinyl called Quartz and its like 1mm thick and easier to use but it still isnīt easy to wrap those sideblinkers. Infact after those pictures i made it again.

damn, the 122 wheels look perfect for 17in setup. they are very concave with that offset, which is why I always thought they'd be a good fit. Good move sir.

Will give her a good cleaning this weekend and post pics.
LaminX is think and you need a second set of hands. We used the heat gun and the second set of hands had to hold the corners down for some time. it took a while and well worth the wait.
The reverse lights were easy

Promise pics of all mods this weekend

Thank you. I appreciate that you helped me to choose the wheels at that size.Your car was the reason that i wanted these wheels with 9.5 front.

I was lucky to get them. I had already bought different wheels, but when i got them i noticed that they where et15 so i sold them ahead. I paid 200€(250$) of these style122.These are used ,but good shape. Couple marks here and there and some black dirt that wonīt come off.I think its brake dust burned to wheel.

Yes. Reverselight and foglights where easy. For side markers/blinkers i got pro tip from professional. He said to use nail polish to edges of the vinyl so it wont be so noticeable and edges will stick better. Also when washing, sponge wont get stick the edges.

Little update with pictures of my winter wheels and few other changes.

M-sport front bumper with splitters.
Blackline- tail lights
New Double exhaust tip
E90post decals at the side windows









Still to come

New double exhaust tip. It will be almost the same as the old one but Stainless steel.The current one is rusting from inside the tips and it looks awful.

10mm spacer for the rear at least for winter wheels, but going to try to also use those with my summer wheels after fender roll.

CSL style spoiler.This one

http://www.autofans.biz/components/c...754abd6f93.jpg

I already have it. Waiting for painting and installing. I did test fit and it was good, but not perfect. Its a little bit shorter than the trunk. Some minor inperfections in finishing, but after it's prepared to paint and painted those wont show.

Today my car had wash and wax.So i took few pictures when it's still clean.Won't last that clean very long.I know quality of the pictures isn't so good, but anyway.

Some changes also done since last time. Changed the exhaust tip to "better" one.Added 10mm spacers to rear.CSL spoiler is installed too.Fitment could be better, corners don't follow properly the trunk lines and there is slight gaps.Top of the trunk and the curved line of the spoiler have gap too.Im still pretty happy with it.You can't really see those gaps from further away and also the spoiler is from ebay and wasn't that expensive.











At first i was sure that its done now, but then modding sickes hit me again.
I want to change my rear bumper to m-sport with carbon fiber diffuser. I was thinking this diffuser.
http://www.scopioneusa.com/all-produ...t-e90-e91.html
I think it fits nicely with my front splitters.

Infact i kinda liked the look of the style 158, but hated how deep those where in the wheel well and i didn't want to use spacers like 20-25mm thick.

Well it's going to be at least 2 months before i can even think about putting summer wheels on. Rear bumper should be on sooner.

Of course i remember your car. It's something different and i think it looks cool. Not too many of those.Here is one.

I took some pictures after i washed and waxed it, even though nothing isn't really changed except front has 5mm spacer now.











Work in progress:

10mm spacer to rear as soon as i get my fenders rolled.
M-sport rear with Carbon fiber LCI diffuser.
Custom made CSL trunk.
M-sport gear knob.

car looks nice and clean. I have the same color.

cant tell from the pics. are the grills black or color matched?

I haven't changed mine from the OEM chrome since im not too fond of black on this color (same reason I haven't tinted), but it doesn't looks so bad there

Thank you. Grills are BMW Performance ,basically shiny black. My car has Individual sun protection glazing. I can't take my "tints" away unless i change the windows too.

Well today i picked my car from workshop. They installed coilovers and fitted my new Varsstoen wheels. I still need alignment, because it rubs at rear, when hitting bigger bumps or cornering faster. Little bit more negative camber is needed. I only have few crappy pictures of it. Some day i will get better pictures. I just want my to get my m-sport rear with custom CSL trunk installed first. I bought those for a long time go, but bodyshop has been really busy.

I will change the center caps to polished aluminum. Those need some re-polishing, because those had scratches. I might change the bolts to bright ones too.
