Looks real nice.

I'd say BMW performance diffuser, bigger tips and LCI lights for the rear.

Your car looks spot on, I think grey is defo the best colour for an e92. I wish mine was grey.

Looks spot on, love those wheels. As suggested above, black kidney grille's would be a good addition.

Made the most of the nice evening we got. Plates were changed over before giving the car a wash inside and out.

Love this - wheels look so special. Has it been lowered? Ride height looks great.

Chrome Kidney Grills were swapped for Gloss Black. I think they tie in with the High Gloss Shadow exterior trim.

Lovely car. Anyone who assigns mud flaps to the nearest waste bin gets my vote!

Not much of an update. More of a means for me to keep track of things.

Took a trip down to Kerr's Tyres in Antrim for a full laser alignment. Great job done by the lads as usual.

Next was an impulse buy earlier today.

A Garmin Nuvi 3790t with genuine BMW kit (cradle / wires etc)

Decided to install it after dinner. I am going to purchase the Garmin ecoRoute to have my dials running on the screen.

Downloaded a new BMW wallpaper and new vehicle (Grey E92) from the BMW website. Just need to download them onto the Garmin.

Anyway heres a few photos.










And finally a nice new keyring.

Install looks good on the Garmin. How you finding it? Never used a Garmin, mainly just google maps on my phone and the odd tomtom.

Now major updates. Just driving away and enjoying the comfort etc compared to the Integra.

Next up will be a set of tyres. I am thinking of purchasing a set of Goodyear Eagle F1's again. On the Integra they were great and I had full confidence in the car, wet and dry! The "Altenzo's" on the car ATM are terrible. In the wet you may aswell be driving on Ice.

The rims I bought the car with were slightly kerbed, some worse than others. I like the CSL's so i think I will buy a new set. I have the set on the car provisionally sold. The price between painting these and purchasing a new set is very similar. Between 50 & 100 after selling the original set. A new set in Hyper Silver instead of flat Silver will help the look of the car IMO.

Anyway, here's a few photo's i took on a run around The Ports today...

Lovely car. Can you tell me how you got the inside of the wheels so clean? Mine are pretty much in the same state but I can't seem to shift the dirt.

Any tips would be much appreciated.
