Hi!

Welcome to BMW!

I used to have an EP3 Type-r so know all about VTEC

New car looks good, did you buy it already modded? Will you be going down the remap route? Might help close the performance gap a bit!

Welcometop E90post. Nice 320d. Not liking the 335 replica pipes though. If you wanted serious grunt you could have opted for the 335 itself!?

Re-map your 320d and you will cling onto the back of Civic Type-R's.

Car looks good, also really liking the Integra - both smart looking motors, especially at 22 yrs of age!!

Make sure you put plenty of wheel sealant on the M6 reps before winter as the salt will corrode the spokes (i ran a set on my E93 vert) - could also do with some spacers, help them fill the arches a little?

Don't usually like anything modded, but those m6 wheels actually really suit the car!

Not liking the front bumper or twin exhausts tho!....

Guessing some m-sport from seats will be next on the list?

Get yourself the M-Sport steering wheel immediately.. It is a massive improvement!

I hate the exhausts at the back though.. They should be flush to the bumper atleast. They seem to stick out further? Look pretty max power.

It is a nice car for a 22yo I should know. I also bought my 320d at age 22; Albeit abit newer and an M-Sport...

Welcome to the site mate!

Spencer, welcome to to the forum

Tell me, what size are those M6 reps? I've been thinking of changing my alloys but am stuck between 19" CSL's and M6 reps. My 3 series is also black and they really suit the car. Guys, will I also need spacers on a M Sport suspension setup?
