I really like the carbon fiber rear, it sets the car off nice. What type of spoiler is installed on my car also?

The performance exhuast sounds reallllly nice. I've driven other 2009-10 328's and I noticed mine may have a little bit more kick to her. It may be placebo but do these exhaust add any hp?
It looks like the OEM M-Sport spoiler. If it's the BMW Performance exhaust, that is a full catback system that reduces back pressure and, as a result, increases horsepower. BMW claims about a 5 hp gain.

Sweet, I can definitely notice it is more responsive. How much do these exhausts run typically? I like your car, how do I delete the amber turn signals in the headlight?

What does everyone think about painting the kidneys black? I kind of like the chrome but open to suggestions.

Please take the badge off the trunk, you have brought the flaming upon yourself.

Looks riced out with those lights, but the car is nice overall, congrats!

The OEM BMW Performance Exhaust for the 328 goes for anywhere between $900-$1000. I'm sure you can find stealth bulbs that fit your turn signals - mine are LED since I have xenon lights so it's a completely different ball game for me.

Thanks for being the 17th person to comment on the M badge. Once again, I didnt put it on there, it came with the car upon purchase.

I figured you had gotten the point, but nice pickup nonetheless. You have the much more reliable NA so no need to worry abt expensive repairs

car looks great! I would either get OEM LCI xenon headlights or change the HIDs it came with to either 4300 or 5000 so they dont look so blue. Also I know you dont want to hear this butttttt the badge has to go lol

So what type of bulbs would I need at night? Can you actually drive with just the halos at night or are those just for daytime use? My daytime running lights are just halos, and I want to switch them to something else. What is the best kit out there for daytime and night? Also- How do I delete the amber turn signals. Thanks bros

If you want to use a good place to re spray your bumper. Call Jason Car Paint 813- 325-8951. They do paint work for BMW. He repainted my M-Sport bumper. Good quality. You can tell him that Jarvis sent you.

What can I do with the orange turn signals on the upper corner of the front bumper above the wheels also? Can I just put white plasti-dip to cover them?

They're just reflectors. Get them painted to match, or pick up a set from the vendors on this forum. Remove the oem ones and pop in the painted set. Looks a lot cleaner.

Congrats on the ride! I can't figure what's wrong in having an M-Badge on a M Sport 3er. Like someone said, it doesn't say M3. Anyway that's my 2 cents. Opinions differ.
