A few things for my E92

Hi all,

I got my E92 about a week ago and I have got a pair of M3 style side skirts to spray and fit (hopefully I can do it this weekend) and will also be either getting a M sport front bumper or Aero bumper lip, not decided yet. I will also be putting a M sport rear bumper.

Here are some pics of the car now:

Nice car mate and welcome along! Looks a great colour combo that .. and love the red interior as always! I always end up staring when anyone has cinnamon or red interiors LOL!

What's the spec of your car? Note: Don't buy the Fibreglass Aero Lip as I hear they don't last long.. get the genuine one from BMW. That's what I'll be doing when buying mine

thanks for the comments guys. it is a 08 e92 325 se with the n53 3ltr engine. it also has paddle shifts
I bought ABS m3 style side skirts which are real nice. I have researched in to it and yes most people say go for the ABS aero lip spoiler ratehr than the fibre glass.
As for the wheels, i have not decided yet but would like some 18s perhaps in black.....any ideas would be appreciated

You need to go 19" on the wheels, especially if you are fitting deeper side skirts and M sport bumpers.

Plenty of replicas available for decent prices but in my opinion one of the best wheels still for the E92 is the BMW Twist spoke 230, its the original 19" wheel supplied on SE which has upgraded to 19s.

313 replicas also nice and very well priced from forum sponsors.
