"The day that we met"


May 14th

Finally got her home


First things first, let's get rid of this front plate



Tinted the car (makes the color pop very well imo



A couple months went by without me changing anything because I've been trying to figure out what direction to go with the car. I want to be different but I'm not prepared to jump out the window with anything crazy.

Finally De-badged the car


Got bored and decided to put my girlfriend to work and plasti dip the trim and kidney grill



Went to check out Cn555ic for some coding, real great guy.
Here's two videos of my favorite feature he coded for me. Looks so cool at night

I like what you did so far. I would also plasti dip the silver "splitters" on your front bumper if you are going to keep the trim and grill black. Also, did you use anything to plug the front license plate holes? I tried taking mine off the the holes are so big and obvious.

Thanks, but yea I'm looking to swap the bumper covers out soon. The holes in my bumper are hardly noticeable, so plugs weren't needed for my bumper.

So this happened today


Word to the wise, stay away from plastidip


Had to go see these guys


Took care of me & had me back on my feet in no time

Yes this is the joy I see in this situation cause I have to replace it anyway so why not upgrade... My only dilemma I whether or i want to go through my insurance. The passenger side taillight is cracked as well so that puts me in the market of looking for euro spec lci's now.

Word I went for a quote at a family friend & well reputable body shop out here, and they basically told me they'll take care of it, but the mtech bumper for the e92 just looks so bllllaahhhhh compared to the e90 version. And the price straight from the stealership is crazy lol. Plus if I do the rear then I must do the front

Really sorry about what happened but as mentioned...M-Tech rear!
Also, you don't have to get the front/rear(would look complete though) but IMO even with just the rear your car will still look really good. I think that there's been a few members on here that have just done the rear.

Anyways thanks for sharing the build and I luvvv the color of your car!

Thanks man, I see what your saying as well, m tech bumper is coming for sure & will be matched with a 1m front. This incident has put the brakes on my suspension & wheel combo I had planned for next year

To me personally the only e92 that looked good with the 1m bumper was Neema's but thats probably because of his widebody and m3 hood other then that it looks great on e90s without any other supporting mods.
