Cheers
Quite a good price considering paint etc...
I presume ur painting cf ones as opposed to getting other painted splitters in fibreglass/plastic for durability reasons?
Think they add far greater presence to the car without breaking the bank!

I’m afraid it’s a NO from me. You are driving a quality car, why are you trying to turn it in to something it is not.

An E90 320d is a class leading (premium branded) 4 door saloon, it is not an extra from the fast and furious. Please don’t do anything else, if you do, you will end up driving one of those cars that you have always cringed at when passing in the car park of Burger King.

what you mean is a jap type car with a massive touring car style spoiler and dust bin exhaust and with tints so dark you cant see in nor out.

I dont think Turk is doing this to his car do you MB!?

Fandango - Check out pic 3 from the op, now picture it with the added (mentioned) mods - spliters and boot spoiler. It will defo fall into the category of those monkey's bombing around in those 'jap cars' and all the other boy racer cars.

Its just my opionion of course, but why would you want to do this to a quality motor.

No offence intended of course to the OP

I don't see the problem when it's all BMW parts?

It's what BMW would have wanted!

Every man to themselves i suppose...!

Silver is a hard colour to get right IMO.

I mean putting black grilles on a black or white or even blue car is always win. They work to a degree on silver but not as much as they do with another colour car. (not sure if you'd agree MB)

Putting black rims on a silver car is also similar to the scenario above.

Having said that this car will not look Jap orientated when done, it will just look unconventional in that you don't see too many silver cars modded up with the black goodies and a performance stripe (definitely CC the splitters though)

I think OP has done well and I'm sure the car looks good in person.

Guys I am always open to comments and believe its good to hear everybody's opinions ... I have tried to keep all parts oem, rarely have I used cheap aftermarket replicas etc etc. I wish guys that I could have afforded a 335 or an M3 but this is all I could afford. But i am happy with the mods i have done and still tried to keep to oem bits and lines of the 3 series. I didnt put mpower badges, didnt put quad exhaust pipes just put enhancements meant for my vehicle by BMW... good night boys and dont nod it but mod it enjoy

Love the Black Boots. I have seen the stripe on a white 1 series coupe and it suited but I am not sure on a silver car.

I have the BMW gloss balk on my Le Mans Blue E92! I thought they would look Brill but they only look OK. Let me know if you want me to "hi jack" this thread with pix!

Refreshing to see something different. It's not to everyones taste but it's your car so do what the hell you want.

Only thing I think looks wrong is the wheels as they sit far too far out for my liking. Black grille and stripes suite the silver.

Also like to say, don't do blacklines! Am I the only person that thinks blacklines make the rear of the e90 look like the old Rover 220 coupe?
