Few little mods on my E90

Im a trader but have got a bit attached to this car!

E90 320d M-Sport, Been spending a bit of money on it so planning on keeping it for a few months now, had lots of cars and this is one of the best ive driven, so smooth and comfortable.

Heres what Ive done over the last few days:

ACS rear windows spoiler
Black kidney grills
Black steering wheel trim due to original colour peeling
Red tint on rear lights
Powerflow twin exhaust tip
Window Tints

Planning on getting my wheels refurbed next week in gunmetal grey, and a few other little bits.

Let me know what you think and any other nice subtle mods I can do






Also picked up this a couple of days ago:



Not my kind of car though at 17mpg!!

Fook the 3er, look at that M5!

100 times the car that any 3er could ever be. Just look at it!

No offense, but your 320 just shit its pants and tried to escape throught the fence even being next to it.


A real car....

Fairly standard poorly maintaned E39. Looks wise I much prefer the E90.

That said. The E39 M5 is an absolute beast of a car. So cheap now too. Really tempting

Mega, you seem very negative today - unless you know the history of that M5.

Both lovely cars! Regards to mods, depends on personal taste, the red film is definitely rarer than blacklines though whitelines are rarer still.

The black grill looks good as does the steering - though would be tempted to change all the silver to piano black finish.

I don't think the silver looks good with the beige trim anyway and would match the steering then (though silver trims is also available for steering).

Not more red tape...



And before someone starts saying 'you’ve mapped your car - that is a modification', one is deffo a worthwhile investment producing unquestionable performance whilst the other is just plain shit and tacky.

That gloss black trim on the e90 steering wheel definately needs to go.

Id have an m3 or m5 if insurance was possible, but seeing as ive just turned 20 the 320d is the only half decent car I can get covered on!
