My E90...a little OEM, some aftermarket and a dash of retro

I finally have the mods on my E90 pretty much done (still need to tint the windows) and thought I would share. (Not a professional photo shoot by any means but it is pretty cool that I can be in the pines or at Redrocks amphitheater within 10 minutes of each other.)

It may not be to everyone's taste but I'm pretty happy with it.

Good luck out there and let me know if any questions.

Exhaust looks great.. But IMO the wheels you have chosen really take away from the car.. with all those great mod IMO you need a more aggresive wheel....

Great job with the car tho!

Yes, I know not everyone will like the wheels but they have always been my absolute favorite BMW wheel so I decided to try them. Considered M6 reps but they just don't do it for me. I also know that 19's would ultimately look better but I put a lot of miles on the car and the price diff between 18" tires and 19" tires is just too much for me.

The wheels came from Factory Reproductions in Chino, CA. They have listings all over ebay and that's where I found them.

The fronts are 3-series offset, the rears are 7-series.

Thanks for the compliments.

Also on the exhaust, if any of you are worried about cutting the OEM diffuser to fit quads, don't be. It was really easy and after I applied a little trim molding around my cut-outs, it looks damn near factory.

The M-parallels look good IMO.

Nice touch on the cluster needles too. Was thinking about doing the same thing a while back.
