Maybe, just maybe, the only one in the world... M-tech Sonora.

Finally got the M-tech package on my sonora e90.
People refuse to believe that I chose this colour on purpose. They're convinced that some old relative kicked the bucket and left me the car.

Took three days including painting and whatnot. As soon as I saw it I thought, why isn't this package standard on every e90?
Sorry about the dirty car... and the quick and dirty pics. Shop told me not to clean the car for a week, just to be safe and let the paint fully dry.

Thanks for looking.

^^ Thank you very much. The wheels are 18" Neez Eurocross. I believe they were silver once. I haven't cleaned them for ages for that budget aggressive look.

I don't know why people don't like this color. My dealer also told me not too many people buy sonora. The only thing I can think of is that I don't expect to see that color on a BMW, I expect it on a Lexus. So I have to look twice to be sure it is a bimmer. But the way you modded it out makes it look more aggressive and probably makes it look better than without the mods.

Thumbs up overall, looks good and hope you enjoy it!

Car looks good

Now hurry up and slap on some blacklines so I can see how they look on Sonora.

Also please clean your beautiful wheels ... or better yet get some 19s

Yes, blacklines would help broaden the rear end, and match your new diffuser.

Many thanks for all the positive comments everyone.
And yes, I will clean my wheels (or have them painted).

On a side note, 18's seemed like a great idea at the time, but I now have huge pangs of regret on not getting 19's. Next year then.

Also, thanks so much to 1clean335i for posting pics of my car's twin. I FINALLY know what blacklines look like on a sonora. I'm still on the fence here, not sure that blacklines look as good on a sonora as on other cars.
