Pictures finally !!

Hey guys,

For those interested here are some pictures of my new 325i. Picked it up about 2 weeks ago - already 1300km - geez.

Getting some "Blacklines" installed soon, and a new prestige rego plate silver text on black. I'll take some more pictures then.

Have fun everyone..

I absolutely love the M-Sports kit for both e90 and e92. Looks great, although i am wondering how the 19inch rims from e92 M-sports will look like on the e90.

I have seen a couple of e90's around with the 5 spoke 19"s on them, didn't look bad. I'm not sure why 19"s aren't on the standard options list for the e90 actually.

I wonder if they will bring out new blacklines for the facelift with LED's???

Nice choice of car Toiman, same same. I recommend boot spoiler for a nice touch.

You can get 19" Wheels on the car from the dealership just pay ($1500) the same as you would if upgrading from 18 to 19 on the coupe. As long as your car has 18"s and is a sport and they have a E92/E93 with 19"s they can just do a wheel swap. I bought my car a couple of months ago, I tried to do the wheel swap but the car I bought was a demo (my old drive car that I drove all 1,200kms) and they didn't have another demo with 19"s to swap. If buying brand new they will more than likely have a car in stock with 19"s.

19" sport wheels look pretty knarly, certainly on my wish list.

Ninja333 - M Sport kit upgrade, which comes with a deeper more aggressive front dam amoungst other things.

Bradbilbie - Geez I love that rear wing and blacklines. Goes great against the sparkling graphite?? (Sorry if that's not right). I'm getting my blacklines installed soon, I can't wait after seeing yours....
LED lights would look so cool, what's this facelift your talking about? Are you just refering to the new model coming a couple of years.

interesting comment, didn't realise you could trade-in your existing wheels for an upgrade. which BMW dealer offers this?

i've been thinking to upgrade the stock 17" to 19"wheels for our 2008 X3 3.0! our car is still relatively and the wheels are practically brand new.

thanks so much

no they will not trade the wheels off another car if you have already bought the car you have to make it part of the deal before you sign up. Or you can do it through the lifestyle store but you will pay 2 or even 3 times as much.

Plus from memory you can't swap 17" wheels from an X3 non sport and put 19"s on because sports only come with minmim 18"s and you can't get 19"s from factory on a non sport.

BMW Sydney do this all the time.

Very nice brother, congrats!! I've also got a BS sports. A must do is get blacklines & debadge. I guarantee you won't regret it! The rear would like 100X wider and so much cleaner. And if possible get the rear m lip!


Note for some people who are looking at getting an e90/e92 and want to uprgrade wheels.

When i went to purchase my e90 it had 17" sport on them and there was a model with the 18" on them and I told them i wanted a swap and they told me no way! And advised that i would have to fork out $1800 if i wanted to do that, but i didn't think it was worth it and insisted them if they didn't want to swap it then i won't be buying the car. 5 minutes later, papers were being signed.

ok we did ask them to swap the wheels for a 19"inch before we signed up, mind you it was a '08 demo model but the manager told us there weren't any available.

sorry for OT, i would have thought all X3 should able to fit a 19inch as the circumf should be the same..just a lower profile. anyway i'm happy to upgrade it to 18" if 19 won't fit.

as for the lifestyle store, don't you purchase the wheels via spare parts?
