E90 328 Deep Sea Blue's Journey

Hey guys,

Finally would like to share my car's 8 months journey of transformation which I got in 2014 end of August
Nothing too fancy but have done few upgrades on my car trying to keep it clean.

Pardon me for the Non DSLR pics (clarity is compromised in some)
I plan to do a good photo shoot in the coming weeks since the weather window is getting good in Chicago

Model : E90 328xi (Sports Package)
Color : Deep Sea Blue (A76)

(Great and Unique color.. haven't seen much of E9xs models with this color.. as it is more prominent on X3,Z4
Looks stunning in person.. just needs more maintenance.. around alternate week of car wash and waxing which I Intend to do )

Moving on....

Upgrades are as follows :

1. BMW Performance Exhaust
2. VMR V701 18 * 8.5,9.5 with Continental DWS 235/265
3. Carbon Fiber Performance Spoiler
4. MSport Bumper Conversion (Front,Rear)
5. KW V1 Coilovers


Interior/Exterior

1.Window Trim (35%)
2. Plastidipped grills
3. Interior Carbon Fiber Wrap


Feel free to leave comments about the progress, what can be upgraded for performance/exterioir appearance, as I still have budget down the line on the modifications..

Enough talk..!! lets head out the the photos

Wow, I really love this color!!! Spacers would be nice to fill out the rear and front fenders! Paint matched front reflectors I think are a must as well.

car looks great with the mods you chose. How is the ride comfort compared to the stock x-drive suspension? I also agree that you need painted reflectors. They are such a small piece but clean up the front very nicely.

thank you !

Yes the setup is much better in handling and driving compared to stock suspensions.. ride comfort is a bit stiff but I actually like it

have plastidipped the reflectors for now on .. will install the painted ones down the line..

Beautiful color, car, and pics! She looks great but the only thing that is needed IMO are color-matched reflectors and either gloss or matte black grills.

Thanks for sharing, keep up the great work!

Such a great color and looks even better with M-Sport. I would personally remove the xDrive badges and maybe install painted reflectors. Great looking car though
