Thumbs up for longtran! - A new owner story + pics!

So I picked up my new (to me) used '07 E92 335i the other day in Burbank, CA.
I previously spoke to LT about getting some painted reflectors so he gave me his contact information since I was going to be in his area when I picked up my car.

Here is the car as I picked it up. Bone stock. (and dirty...)
(forgive the camera angles, the gf was taking some of the shots and the lighting was sub-par )

Front:


Side..ish:


Back:


And my attempt to make a bad picture look better with photoshop:





Anyway...
So after I picked up the car, I contacted long. Me and my girlfriend went straight to his house from the dealer to pick up those reflectors.

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending how you look at it) I caught the mod-bug after I saw what he had in stock.

Here's what my car looked like after long got his hands of magic on my car:




First thing first, reflectors had to go. Heres a shot of the newly installed LT painted reflector:


Unfortunately, this particular reflector had some compound (or something) on it, hence the white outline. Long replaced it for me after we noticed. I didnt snap a pic of the final reflector.

The car went up for removal of the front bumper:


Heres (part of) long removing screws to remove the bumper:


Never thought I'd see my car like this on the day I picked it up: (scary pic!)







In went black lower mesh and matte black kidneys.






And the final product!


(yea those are drilled holes )


And my girlfriend picked up some matte black grilles and amber-gone overlays on her E90 while we were there as well:





Long does some great work and is a genuinely nice guy. I will definitely be back once my wallet fills back up!

If you see this, thanks again Long!

Like the black lower, not big on the black kidneys on a black car but otherwise looks great.

Yea I was skeptical about the black kidneys at first but its growing on me.
Looks classier with the chrome, but mean as hell with the matte black imo.

Awesome to see some HB locals on here!

Classier isn't always better. Sportier > Classy. If you want classy, put wood on a wood trim grill.
