Hey buddy!!
The shift knob is complete plug and play from Bimmian: http://www.bimmian.com/Updated-Look-...r-E91-3-Series

However I do NOT recommend it since after a few months it fell apart, I am back to my oem and ordering a performance shift knob soon..

The entertainment dash is from ebay seller Eonon, who is now a vendor on this site. It works great but DO NOT expect oem quality. For the price and everything you are getting including steering wheel functions/bluetooth etc its a steal. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=720765

NAV still does not work for me and alot of other people have this problem too

and thanks

Well at first I had my muffler removed and had single sided dual tips from Cyba.. cost was $109 for the tips and about $100 for material and labor at my muffler shop. About a year passed by and decided to do quads, so I cut my bumper with a razor and went back to the muffler shop. Ordered another set of Cyba tips for $109 and extra parts and labor was about $80. If you get Cyba quads, instead of 4 tips like I did and go to a muffler shop just once it should cost you about $250 with tips and labor. Instead of $450 like me lol

Dig your MB ride as I love that color also on my ride. I liked what you did with your headlights and front underspoiler lip. Is that OEM or aftermarket headlights? Looks aftermarket with the LED corners. I hate the orange color headlight border. How did you get rid of that? Laminix tint covering?

Thank you and good eye! The bottom set of pictures are older than the top.
I used to have OEM roundels covered in black vinyl, but hated the look of chrome so I got mfest roundels: http://www.mfestlab.com/product_p/ccroundels.htm

Thank you, it really is an awesome color. These are DEPO P90 V2 headlights (aftermarket), here is my thread about them: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=618408

These headlights don't have the orange reflectors as they already come in black. But your alternatives could be lamin-x or something like this: http://www.**********s.com/Vitex-Amb...0-3-Series.htm

Whats up Ben! Honestly your headlights don't look that bad, but if you want to find oem new parts I think your only solution being in Ireland is your local bmw dealership. Give them a call, but just a heads up. They are going to be PRICEY!!!

I assume shipping from the UK would be way cheaper than the states. So I recommend creating a thread here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumd...117&order=desc

in the UK section, looking for headlights..

Yes! The BMW guys are meeting up on saturday, so before I get mine ill ask if anyone else wants some then ill let you know.. save me a couple for sure though..

and yeah this thread will never die lol. New members are usually the ones reviving it asking questions about the headlights or navigation. I really dont mind

Thanks brother!!

Thanks, I appreciate it. Yea, we'll definitely have to work that out. I'm getting my car detailed after this weekend. Driving route 666 this weekend with about 20 guys from s2ki.com. I'll probably be posting some videos/pics on Monday.

Thanks,

I purchased it from ebay member Eonon a while back but since then they have become a vendor on this site: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=720765

Before you order. My navigation is still NOT working after two units and a couple months. Other members seem to have the same problem and cant get navigation to work either... apart from that it works fine!

Im extremely happy with the muffler delete quads. So no new exhaust for me, but I will be changing the front and rear bumper in the future.
