Red face LCI e90 first few mod ADVICE?!!

Hey everyone,

First off, I'd like to greet everyone in the forum as this is my first "real" post. I just signed a deal on a Space Gray 2011 328i with X drive so I'm SUPER excited as it is my first BMW.

I was thinking about some mods and decided to make the super white angel eyes my first. I ordered some 20W CREE from ebay to start with, I'll report back on how good/bad those are!

Now for my second mod...should I go with carbon fiber front splitters or space gray painted front splitters? note: stock bumper

And finally, what colour fog lights?! Every other kid with a honda civic has HID headlights with yellow fogs here in Toronto so I'm leaning towards the 7k white fogs with the bright white angel eyes...what do you guys think?!

Space grey splitters on an otherwise stock car. Definitely.

As for fogs, get the closest match to the angel eyes.

I like yellow fogs lol But I'd also go for the painted splitters not c/f.

hmm...

dammit...I hoped you guys would say the CF splitters. What does everyone else think?!

About the fogs...I think I'm leaning towards a white colour, maybe slightly blue. I love the yellow on white cars, I'm not so sure on Space Gray. Does anyone know exactly what colour the bright white angel eyes are? I'm guessing 7k??

Here are my splitters, IMO don't get CF. Large CF things don't go well with space gray. You should keep CF to accenting only.

Im on the fence with the splitters as well, I believe the consensus on here is that people like them

I'd say save up for a m3 front or performance front. But splitters plus a K style lip from ebay would really make it sick.

Wow that does look great. I'm glad I got the white angel eyes after seeing that pic!
The splitters are pretty small though which is why I was considering them in cf in the first place. I just need to see a pic with the cf splitters on space gray, can't seem to find a good one.

Haha. I would get space gray splitters only if I had the mtech front & a cf diffuser. Also the angel eyes are actually Umnitza Orion V4s which are a separate LED unit.
