I feel OEM or DEPO blacklines would suit the car better.

No point investing another set of blacklines if you're going to do LCI rear conversion? If you are happy with how the car sits now then I would do M Tech front/rear and amber covers. A drop and spacers in the rear wouldn't hurt either. =)

x2 on the (standard) DEPO blacklines.

I'm not sure what it is, the LED housing look - looks weird on the E90 w/o being LCI.

I have LED turn signals from ddm that are actually pretty bright in my "standard DEPOs" and get compliments all the time.
- functionality of LED but good looks of the halogen housing.

I am behind on some of the terms, what does 'DEPO' mean?

I have blacklines tail lights but not LED, is that what is meant?

I have been looking for LEDs for my front and rear turn signals to replace the halogen bulbs, if you are happy with yours and they are bright, can you share a link to where you bought them from?

Much appreciated educating me and providing info

Nice car, is this black or Monaco blue? this looks exactly like mine without the black grill and the wheels. What shade of tint on the windows and is it the same all the way around? I have blackline tails but not LED.

well i was going to do LCI front conversion first, and then rear later on. and yes ill be getting mtech rear, but for front i was thinking the m3 bumper. i see thats what you have as well, and it looks amazing!!

i am thinking about dropping it, should i go for h&r sport? and how many mm should i get the rear spacers?

thanks for your help!!

yeah i was thinking the same thing once i installed them. i compared it to the depo blacklines my buddy has, and his does look better on the pre LCI e90. so ill change it to that, or ill just wait it out with this because im planning on doing a rear LCI conversion. do you have any pix of your car? i would love to see it!!
