N52 photoshoot! Alpine x Montego

Hello E90post, I finally got around to taking some proper photos of my car. But first, storytime:

Originally I wanted a set of Style 313s (doesn't everyone?), but then I saw images of chanceparker's ride and knew immediately I wanted to rock M Parallels instead. Classic styling and with less negative space than the 313s, so my tiny brakes aren't nearly as obvious, lol. And as it just so happened, a good friend of mine was selling the set on his E30 M3. He installed a monstrous BBK on that car, and they wouldn't fit. Too bad for him, lucky for me.



Slapped on some brand-new Falkens and they were good to go! Oh, and before anyone says anything, YES, the E90 is in need of a drop. Luckily, I have suspension sitting in my garage waiting to go on. I realize I broke the cardinal rule of car modding (NEVER put on wheels before suspension), and for that I am sorry, but I had my reasons. For now, enjoy the pictures, and be amused by my wheel gap. The white E92 is Hey Ant, who is rocking some new-to-him Style 189s:























Mods as of 11/28/12:
  • OEM Style 37 "M Parallel" 18x8 et13, 18x9.5 et25 (from E38 7-series)
  • Falken Azenis TP722 - 225/40/18, 245/40/18
  • OEM Blackline tail lights
  • OEM Brushed Aluminum trim conversion
  • OEM ZSP steering wheel conversion
  • OEM Pearlescent chrome e-brake handle
  • 30% 3M tint
Don't worry guys, she is far from finished. Until next time...

"conservative" retro look goes well with your E90. a drop would definitely set it the whole look.

Thanks for all the kind words, guys. There are lots of great looking cars on the boards that I'm constantly drawing inspiration from. It's been a while since I've owned a (relatively) stock car, and it's fun having a new canvas to work with. Not to mention how easy it is to find parts for these cars.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm very content with the MPs. I'm sure you'll find a buyer if you list them for sale.

Indeed it is.

Here's a quick Photoshop of the car with a clean drop. Just a teaser of things to come...

I think they were made in Germany by some company called Bayeriche Motoren Werke. Sounds like a BMW knock-off to me.

Nice 335 dude!

With a big drop this could look great. Honestly these wheels look better than I would have imagined they would on an e90
