Call Cobb to see how much will they charge you, and make sure you tell them that you are from e90post..to see if you get a discount....

Couldnt find anyone willing to part with the first gen LED, and the second is not available.
Went with the regular, interior will look like this, minus the cheap carbon fiber look.

seems like that's a lot of mileage for used springs. not sure how detrimental that is...but i've seen them go for $150ish with a lot less mileage.

1k miles - $150 http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ighlight=h%26r

Brand new Sports - $175 http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ighlight=h%26r

10k race - $80... http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ighlight=h%26r

I just installed my rims today and they look great, now I cannot get rid of the TPMS sensor light for shit. The air is at the right PSI, so do I have to take the car to the dealership. The TPMS are new....
