Took some pics today of the car, JB e90 on a budget

Cosmetic mods on a budget... $200 for a set of e46 19in M3 rims (yup 200 total and i gave him my stock 17in rims in return), $70 12.5mm spacers up front, $70 used splitters off here (repainted myself), $100 chinese ebay spoiler (came painted), $210 HR sports (diy), $50 Matte grills that i will paint JB, about $50 in CF emblems, a gloss black 330i emblem, I also went ahead and painted my lower grill mesh and accent bar pieces JB with clearcoat. $15 to paint calipers.

Sometimes I still wish I lived in Fayetteville, when we did, the wife and I had sport bikes, we used to love the bike meets and rides.

Yea forgot that, The rear offset is et27 so no spacer needed, the front were et47 and looked terrible so i stuck a 12.5mm spacer on there which brought it to et34.5, may bump that up to a 15mm spacer.

Wow looks great!

Smoke your front signals and blacklines and you're done! I wouldn't bother with your window trim...the chrome goes nice with the wheels

For the headlights I know it's possible because I bought my car with signal shaped film that only smokes the turn signals...I haven't decided if I'm gonna keep it but probably will, depends how it looks when I get my kidney returned to stock (the guy sprayed this one black and it's starting to look like shit, the dealer agreed to replace)

I can't find the product online though...it's like a film that goes on the lense and only covers the turn signals

This is the best pic I have at the moment...if need be I can take better ones tomorrow

I got so lucky with the rims, was looking thru craigslist one night and saw them, he wanted 700 cash for the rims and tires. I offered him my stock 17's and 200 for the difference. His wife wasn't fond of the m3 rims because they looked large on their older 3 series and she wanted something more conservative looking. She liked mine so we did the deal. Happy parties all the way around.
