congrats on your new E90..i really like the color combo and IMO i think your first few mods should be blacklines or LCI tails and a set of wheels, btw your E46 looked really nice, good luck with all the mods and thanks for sharing

Depos are okay, you'll get sick of the light output from the crappy projectors eventually. I replaced my depo projectors with some Morimoto projectors =) couldn't be happier.

Just be aware that the sport cup kit actually comes with the race springs (very low).

the touring cup kit comes with the sport springs (low, but still a daily driver).

The naming system they use is confusing because if you order the sport cup kit you dont get sport springs. I would get the touring cup kit.

Here's mine with just sport springs and 19's.... http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=378556

Well done on the car. How did you go with the debadging? I am contemplating doing the same on my E91, although I am concerned I won't be able to get all of the residue off and leave some marking where the badge was.

Car is looking good! A nice cheap mod is get some carbon fiber fabric and some 3m spray adhesive and do the wood grain trim in CF.
You will LOVE it! Huge difference.
I picked my fabric up from pyspeed.com but you can find it all over the net even ddmtuning has it...
Here's a snap of mine and what I'm talking about.
