Mods: CF pillars, CF Mirrors, CF Roundels (blue/white), CF license plate frames, Matte Black Kidney Grills, Shadowline trim (matte black), Matte Black Badge, Smoked (Black line) Tail-lights, Smoked side markers, 18"x8.5 front 18x9.5 rear VMR V710's (matte black), Sprint Booster
Coming soon: Red calipers, Finisher Rod Delete (all three replaced with black powder coated mesh grill), and then IM DONE! (but when are we ever truly finished modding....)

Love the wheels. The car looks great. Not particularly a fan of tinted tails and don't think our calipers are flashy or attractive enough to paint red (from your "to do" list), but to each his own. Thumbs up for the tint, the wheels, and clean car.

I am a bit discontent with how dark my tails are, because i mainly just wanted to get rid of that super white part. Im hoping the calipers will come out alright, for how cheap it is its worth a try. Thank you for your input!

I have absolutely no regrets with the ride of my wheels. The staggered fitment looks good and allows an extremely responsive driving experience. I am not a huge fan of having a tiny amount of wheel well showing on any of the E90/E92 bmws, for some reason I just dont like it if the wheels are too big or the car is lowered too much. With the 18's I still have a pretty low profile tire so Im not sure if I would recommend 19's for shitty roads. I personally would not have gone any bigger/wider, and I absolutely love my VMR's. I havent regretted the purchase for a second from the moment I saw them on the website!
A quick note, I know that there are a few threads out bashing jlevisw.com; however, I spoke with Brian Eshagh over the phone and he helped me with any questions I had, proper fitment for my vehicle, and was extremely helpful throughout the process with constant contact through emails and very speedy shipping. If you want to get VMR's or other rims I would recommend you contact him and work with Jlevisw, I have had nothing but great experiences with them in the past.

It depends on the angle and how much sun is shining on it. I had very little factory tint on the car. I guess just a safety thing didnt realize it was such a big deal?

35% looks good. I'll probably go with 45 or as light as 55%.

I havent noticed any issues yet but its only been a day Ill let you know if anything comes up. The place where I got my tint has lifetime warranty for replacement due to peeling/scratching/bubbles so im not too concerned

Thanks. The look varies a lot depending on the sunlight and the angle. No regrets with the 35% though.

Damn Clean E90. Good Job on the mods, have you looked into the carbon fiber splitters for the OEM bumper?

Yep spot on. I love my setup and have no regrets. To me 18's are the perfect size, and I have people comment on how smooth my car rides all the time
