Yes, it is going to be the most expensive light bulbs I would ever buy in my life-time I am definitely going for it just a matter of time.

Update of my mods projects: My friend in Japan ordered for me from Canada the Painted JetBlack sharkfin, the black paper roundel, the cheap chrome handbrake pedal, and the parcel got sent back to Canada because he wasn't at home. These mods will hold up a little. I am planning to put a deposit in Mongkok shop for the CF lip and rear unpainted spolier as Kelvin has done so. The idea of upgrade the brakes at this moment needs some re-thinkings, as the costs for 4 Brembo rotors are huge ($40K!) That is better to spend for some new rims and tires and 2020 's lightings !

BTW, did Kelvin tell you , this morning me and him had done the e90post 5th meet ! We were both jammed in Tuen Mun HWY and I was first to notice a silver e90 and only realised it was him when I had double checked the car is a Lemon interior! And, it was him ! Because of typhoon, only private cars can cross the Ting Kow bridge ; so it was pretty much like just me and him racing from the bridge , the tunnel and Kwun Chung ma tau portion of #3 HWY. I was not driving the e90.

One question about the bulbs , are they all simple plug and play ; or I was wondering the BREX white ring might need separate wiring ?

t, if you want to order the OE lip spoiler. I think you can buy them already painted in the factory. http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...38&hg=51&fg=95

Part number is: 51710398730

You can double check with Valiant to confirm this is the exact color.

I don't know about BREX but the Osram 6000K and the fog lamp bulbs are just plug and play.

It was NOT a E90 5th meet without your black diamond It was just a mini E90 member meet

t, BTW if you plan to buy the carbon front lip and the rear OE spoiler from MK. You better buy them fast because I've heard kelvin and 2020 said there will be a shipment in June. If you order them now, then probably they can catch the same shipment. Otherwise you may need to wait for months.......

Hey t, it's only an E90/C55 meet...and not racing, just running 100km/h la :rocks:
Yes, my spolier will be delivered sometime in June, so go ahead and place order in MK if you want too..

BTW, do you guys want to replace the H11 fog light blub? I would like to know if it can be DIY. 2020, any comments?

RD, my question will be how to access the fog light housing? From the wheel or I need to disassemble the parts under/behind the bumper? Any advice?

I have DIY replaced my H7 headlight with Philips 5800k already....though not as good as all you guys's xenon, but the colour is not that bad.....but the fog light now seems to be too yellowish...

I think you can access to the fog light via removing those wheel well plastic..... you can check the owner's manual on how to replace fog lamp bulb....

I paid $300 to install the BREX, OSRAM 6000K and the fog light, you basically remove the same stuff so better can these changed all at one time

Kelvin , you were driving more than 100km/h in the middle a closed lane of the bridge under a chilling typhoon wind speed of over 60km/h !

Once again, you demonstrated how stable is the E90 under typhoon!

You are forgiven , actually the speedlimit was still 80 km/h, they just dont want people drive on all three lanes, so they closed the middle one. Of course Kelvin was speeding very well under a very safe situation as yesterday, not many cars were allowed to use the bridge.

BTW, I finally received a fine $450 plus 3 penalty point on 23/4 5:25pm at Tuen Mun Rd (Northbound) near Parklane Sq.
My Passort X50 was alarming but I was carelessly not paying attention to it and the braking was just too late
May be now I have 6 points on the book. If I ever get a 10 pts in one single catch, I will start using buses for 3 mths

t, there is a "bird cage" speeding camera right in front of Parklane Sq. Tuen Mun...... be careful next time. I am sure you don't want to leave both of your cars for 3 months

oh my fck.....you know....I have not been driving down that far for at least 3 yrs . So, the portion of that road is absolutely unfamiliar to me. May be the music was too loud which covers a bit of the detector alarm; honestly, apart from what I read from the fcking penality ticket saying "Tuen Mun Rd (Northbound) near Parklane Sq. " I now dont even fcking remember where was that

p, i think it is going to be a good break from my cars, first it saves me money, second , I can ask my wife to be the driver, third, I can clean them less often as the only place I will drive the cars will be my parking lot ( the way I do that 190+ km/h often down No.3 highway means I can get caught by the spy car one day )
