E90/E91/E92/E93 Mod Guide

Dear all,

I am looking for some mod for my E92. However, I think the information is spread across various forum/threads (although I have to agree that E90Post has the best and juicy info on the new 3er). Is it possible to make a sticky showing all available (and upcoming) mods (eg. Cosmetic Mod, Tyre, etc) with links to manufacturer, links to dealers and estimated prices? It would be very useful for newbies (like myself) and pro modders alike.

If this has been done please pardon my ignorance and point me to the light

Thanks

Kingsley

welcome to the forum!
not sure I would be in favour of that, maybe it's just me but I really enjoy going through old posts, trying to search for previously posted information, etc.

I concur with your point of view. However, it would be nice to give some kind of guide to newcomers. I have done my searches - let me tell you there are lots of mods

Just for example: In tech forums there are motherboard, RAM guides for newbies. A great help for everyone if it's updated regularly.

Thanks.

One of the easiest and cheapest mods to do right off the bat is to change out your Angel Eye bulbs for a color other than yellow. Many have either cosmo blue or super white. There is a HUGE thread on this on the cosmetic modifications page--it includes instructions, bulbs types, and Q and A from many people who have done this.

Other than that--like you said above, searching or just reading through some of the older posts will give you some good ideas on what people like to do to their E9X's. The sky is pretty much the limit.

these are the ones I've seen the most discussed...

angel eyes - getting PIAA, Lux or other white bulbs that match your xenons
LED interior - bimmian LEDs, gives your interior white look, some problems reported
halogen to xenon conversion
shift knobs - getting the M3 or other weighted and shorter knobs
steering wheel - getting the M Technic wheel, or any other sport
tint
body kits - different parts (lips, spoilers, sideskirts, bumpers, etc.), various manufacturers (ACS, Hartge, Rieger, M6 style, etc.)

plenty more, maybe people could post their favourite mods?

Great work acizek! That's what I am looking for.

I think we could build on the information and make it a great guide. Everyone is welcomed to post their fav mods.

Um easiest way of seeing what mods are out there for the most part is to look at the DIY link sticky off of the main home page.

Here's the link. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1721

Another thing to do is to look at peoples signature.
