Mods on E90/E92/E93

Hey guys - I have been working on my own car for quite a while now and am pretty comfortable doing simple mods that some shops will charge stupid $$$ for.

This is just a feeler but for those of you who are interested in doing some upgrades but don't want to do it yourself I would be happy to help.

Few examples:
  • Piggyback Installs
  • Intake Installs
  • LED/HID Angel Eyes
  • Kidney and Mesh Grills
  • CF Hood Installs
  • Minor Cosmetic Mods
  • Bumper removal/installation
  • Fog Light HIDs
  • Sub/Amp installs (trunk sub only - I don't like to mess with the factory Subs)
  • Trunklid spoilers

The list continuously grows. Will post up pics of my car to show the quality of the work. For more complex work - my friend who is a certified technician may assist.

PM Me if you're interested.

P.S. - I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post this lol. Let me know if I'm violating any rules so I dont get banned haha.

i can vouch for this guy

he installed my JB4 and DCI's on a Sunday in a parking lot - took about 30 minutes

then, 4 days later, he un-installed it because i had to take my car to the dealership for ignition coil failure.

now, hopefully tomorrow afternoon, he will be re-installing my JB4 and DCI's again

They get cars in daily that are much more expensive than our petty 328's... so we're kinda just "easy money" for them. I do know one of the team members is a major BMW enthusiast, though.

Did you ever go to Tire 59? It's literally down the street from Motorwerks, but be careful! They overtorque every time and might scratch wheels. I get good tire prices from them, though.

I did actually, got a pair of Bridgestone RFTs in like new conditions for $350. They left some minor scratches on my 189s though....
