Tried to do a few little jobs recently but failed due to the weather!

First one completed was the air scoops....

I thought I'd try and spruce them up, might be sad but I think it looks cool:



Fitted.....





Not too obvious behind the grills:





Hopefully able to press on with the little touches this weekend!

very nice, i can see people trying to look through the vents to see what is written inside.

Where do you get those from?

The scoops are from CYBA a vendor on this forum and the stickers from eBay. They are sold as door handle stickers?!!

All in for 30....

Done a couple of little jobs recently, painted the calipers gold and wrapped the chrome window trim. Its made a big difference to the look of the car and its at a level where I'm pretty pleased with it....

A picture from the EvoT and E90 meet at Popham yesterday:



Some more to follow!

A few more pics...




I'm pleased with how the gold calipers look, makes the whole car look cleaner!

Cars might looked set up a bit odly but all will be revealed at a later date...




Finally some solo shots, I think it looks so much better with black window trim!

It's not easy! My friend did most of the work and he's very good with stuff like that. The main challenge is getting it round the rear window as it requires a fair bit of patience and stretch....

Next time I have the camera out I'll take some close ups for you.

Lovely looking car I like the gold callipers and it suits the colour of the car.

I would change the front grills to the performance black ones.

I have a sparkling graphite E93 and it really suits it.

Here is a front shot to give you an idea and please don't think I'm trying to hijack your thread....

Thanks Jon, you're right! Grills and some white bulbs will make it....

I was going to get a battery and new blower motor but might sack that off until they actually stop working totally and spend that money on the mods!!

Thanks, correct on the offset. Tyres are 235/35 and 275/30, rears did rub slightly as it was originally on 265's but I've had the arches rolled now. some of that is due to the design of the Falken 453 vs the 452 I think though...

Did you do that yourself? Seen a post by Blues and Twos where he scrubbed down the discs and painted the calipers, defo something I want to do but not sure if it one I should get done or one I can do myself!
