The yanks date their cars in the future though. I find it very odd!

Congratulations, the car looks fantastic. I like BBS LM's, it will be interesting to see how it develops

Really love these Autovogue conversions, I think they look Awesome. I have been hanging my nose over some of the Autovogue e92's for a while now but my only concern was whether or not that kit was grp?
Looks great though and those LM''s will look beautiful on it.
I wonder if they would give me a decent p/x deal on my D3?
I have dealt with them before actually but they where much more modest at the time. They did an M3 conversion on my old e36 loon.

Look forward to seeing those LM's on in the flesh Jules.

Car looks even better in person.

Autovogue kit is one of the best looking out there IMO - its a shame its made out of fibre glass rather than GRP.

Congrats on the car mate, looks good...and with the BBS wheels it will set it off nice!

I had my 335i when i was 19/20 - loved it used to really get the cops wound up, they seem to really hate young drivers owning nice cars lol

You got more pics of the rear?

I was told by them that the kit is made from GRP. ive had the grilles out already (thanks for the black ones Wafik!) and it seemed to be stronger than other fibreglass kits ive had in the past.

LM's should be on soon. My only worry is that they will look too small under the bodykit :/ we shall see!. And then its time for some more power!

Wafik, Unfortunately im having the same problem. the Police around my area most definitely dont like a young lad driving a nice car. What annoys me more is when its the same coppers that pull you for no reason when they already know you have insurance!.

Here is the only pic i have of the rear on this computer.

The grills look awesome on ur car! Good thing you want for them

Yeah they check you got insurance before they stop you, but they still stop you. Usually they just wana check out your car n ask what you do for living etc

Btw....do you ever drive down through ilford? I swear ive seen your car before? unless it was someone else?

its stupid. Just because i look young, i get categorised as someone thats stolen the car, taken my dads car out, hasnt got insurance, and also drug dealer most recently!

Yeah the black grilles really finish the front end off.

Wafik, can i ask where you got your white angel eye lights? i like the look of the OSS kit, but dont want to send them my lights!

HAHA i have teh same problem. when i started driving at 17 and had a 318ci m sport coupe i use to get pulled and same questions asked even when the same coppers saw me in my old vert they pulled and asked why i kept changing my cars.

Now im 20 and i still get pulled in my e93 and asked what i do for a living lol specially with 20's im getting pulled even more.

This is the first time I have ever seen this kit, it looks amazing. The cleanest one I have seen for the e92.
