New mods for my E90

Finally got around to uploading some pictures of my first mods to my E90

Painted Splitters for OEM bumper - from ebay
Before:


After:


-They're a perfect match color-wise, the fit is reasonably flush and snug, but could be better. I think I just need to spend some more time one afternoon (when there isn't so much football on TV) taping up the problem spots to make them sit a bit more flush. I just have it on w/ the screws at this point. Once I get the time for that, I'll post some close-up shots!

And here is the OE Burl Walnut AT Shift knob, may not be a crowd pleaser for the sport trim folks on here, but I prefer the classy-look over sport when it comes to the interior



I also have some Matte black kidneys on the way from JBSpeed, will update pics when they come in

I used to hate those add on splitters for the SE but the more i see them the more im coming round to them,

My front bumper is immaculate and i think it would be a nightmare trying to get a whole bumper sprayed to match + cost and hassle so i think i will order myself some

25160391597 is the OEM part number I believe. If you google that you should find a couple of vendors. I picked mine up on eBay from bmwconcordparts with quick shipping. Thanks for the compliments!
