Black E91 sport plus

Hello everyone. After numerous VW T4's and caddys I finally got myself my dream car.

Here she is




Got MTEC super white headlights in the post along with LED bulbs for the halo's, german style pressed plates and a full white LED interior kit.

Also im looking at 335d style exhausts. I think the sport plus valance's are a different colour to the m sports. Am I right?

Thanks, Chris

Some nice estates being posted lately, this is definitely one of the nicest! If you're thinking of 335 Conversion then a remap is a must

Cheers for the replies. Remap is definite on the cards in the next few weeks.

I just need to know if the sport plus diffuser is the same colour as the M sport.
It looks like the diffuser is the same colour as the wheels and on the M sport it looks to be abit lighter satin grey?

Hello all.

With help from this forum, I've changed the headlight bulbs to MTEC super white by full locking the wheel and reaching in the wheel well with the cover removed.

Also from this forum I've changed the angel eye bulbs to led.
I didnt have to remove the inner wing plastics or the wheel. On the passenger side I simply removed and fitted from the top. Same with the drivers side, just had to undo two 10mm bolts for the airbox housing, move it over to the right and changed the bulb from the top.

With some pics from this forum I've also changed all the bulbs on the interior and doors to LED white. Also fitted some pressed plates, and cleaned inside and out while I was out there.










Thanks for looking

Nice car, if I hang on to mine I will definitely be fitting those side light ring bulbs, I saw an LCi with them today and they looked awesome in the dull daylight, so you can fit them from the top easily enough? what sort of price did you pay?

Lovely car OP,

I really wish I got an E91 now! No idea why I didn't come to think of it considering my last car was an estate!...

You need to get smeblack kidney grilles fitted, that would really set the car off.

Cheers for the comment. I paid 34.99 on ebay and yes, easily enough to fit from the top. Seems to be more room on the LCI's

Thanks for the comment bud, so much more presence with a touring. I was thinking of black kidney grills but the sport plus comes with chrome slats so I wanted to keep it oem.

Cheers mate.

After driving it last night I've noticed the MTEC bulbs shine abit more blue than I'd like. Anyone recommend good, bright bulbs but strictly white, no blue? Might look into fitting HID's otherwise

Looking good w33ksy. Where did you get your angel eye LEDs from mate? I was going to go with Horizon but there is a thread on here that has warned me off them.

Nice to see another plus edition touring! I always said I wouldn't have another black car after my first but I keep seeing these and the carbon black F30's and keep debating it for the next one!

Jelous of your matching mats for the seats, I didn't get any mats with mine when I bought it! Looks tidy

I've got Philips Crystal Vision bulbs iirc but, they shine white but the bulbs them selves are Blue

I think it white bulbs will have a slight blue tint

Not really an update but it looks much cleaner after a week of fishing trips, so thought I'd update

Congrats on a very nice motor indeed. I do have a soft spot for tourings as think the proportions are just right. The colour really suits it and certainly some nice starter mods.
