My latest mod, with lots of pic inside >

Update as of Sep 23, 2012.
A custom lip.
I've been searching for a lip for the BMW Performance bumper.
Couldnt find any so I came up with my own idea. The bodyshop did quite a good job considering they're from VN.
Result is not too bad.
CF lip for bmw performance front bumper:



& CF mirror cover.


My car is pretty much completed.

Hope you guys like it.

Update as of Dec 12, 2011.

Duke Dynamics powervented hood.


DD Hood & Challenge/IND CF roof.


Custom Painted Advan RS, Michelin Pilot Super Sport, & BMW Performance Brakes.


OSS


Front Bumper Reflector Delete & Smoked Side Markers






Debadged.


Vorsteiner Double sided CF Boot lid


A new clip of Eisenmann Race & Resonator delete.


Hope you guys like it.

----
Updated (Oct 16)
a pic of the Advan RS in anthracite color mounted.


Update as of Oct 7:
My latest mod is the Advan RS
front 235/40/18
rear 275/35/18.
Love the new look more & more now.



I also got ESS DirectFlash, & SuperSprint headers.
However, the headers were just too loud for my taste & they're on sale now. Lemme know if you want a good deal of them.

Hi everyone,
The car is a 2009 325i LCI (euro version) 2.5L.
Love the whole dry CF roof I got from Nate @ IND Distribution. I think I'm the first non-M with the CF roof.
The roof is made in WI, US. According to Nate, "they build all the carbon parts for the GrandAM winning team Fall-line motorsports".
Please check post #14 for more info.

Exterior:
Frozen Grey (Repainted)
IND Distribution 1 piece Dry CF Roof
Vorsteiner Double Sided CF Boot Lid
OSS Designs Angel Eyes Full Black Out.
BMW Performance Aero Kit
BMW Performance CF Diffuser Cover
BMW Performance BlackOut Grills
Front Bumper Reflector Delete
Smoked Side Markers
CF Emblems
CF Sharkfin
Black Window Trim
Updated: Repainted Rear Brake Calipers (in post #94)

Interior:
BMW Performance CF Trim
Robson Design Alcantara + CF Steering Wheel
CF Pedals, Handbrake, & Shift Knob

Wheels, Tires, Suspension, & Brakes:
VMR 710 with Hancook v12
Front: 235/40/18 x 8.5 ET 35 5mm MS Spacers.
Rear: 265/35/18 x 9.5 ET 45 12mm MS Spacers
H&R Touring Cup Kit
BMW Performance Brakes

Exhaust:
Eisenmann's Race 2 x 76mm
Eisenmann's S/R pipes

I'm not very good at taking pictures, so please bare with me.
I hope you enjoy the pictures!


OSS Angel eyes.
My kit has pretty cool options: Full Blast, Dim, & Dim with Headlights on. I love both Dim & Full blast. Awesome kit.




Rear shots:



sorry, i cant get enough of the rear...



This badboy sounds so good. I think it will sound better after the break-in.
Nate is right. It's so worth the wait.


This's a drive-by. I'll do a better clip next time...


Steering wheel & CF trim


& this might be what you're waiting for...


For me, it's just too hard to capture the CF parts with camera. They are not photogenic. But, the roof looks fantastic in person.
Here are some close-up photos:





That's all for now. I'd like to give special thanks to:
- Nick from JLevi & Charles from VMR for rushing the custom powder coated VMR 710 out.
- Luis from OSS Designs for THE AWESOME angel eyes.
- Nate from IND Distribution for hooking me up with some of the GREATEST parts (CF roof, Vorteiner's, Eisenmann, ect..)
- Jason from Tischers for the BMW Performance stuffs. I love them all.
- Bien from DongNam Auto, a local bodyshop, who did all the hard work on timely manner.
- & You guys for inspiring me.

Regards,
Dung

p.s. in the making...http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=517185

nice car...are you really in HCM city? I was there 2 months ago. HCM city is very crowded.

I think i know where you are located...outskirt of HCM city. I think I also been to the area where you took most of your photos. That area has a Porsche and BMW dealers. Funny I did not see your car when i visited.

I would be scared driving an expensive car in HCM city sharing the road with other motorcycle. :-) I saw a few e90 in HCM city (one stood out was red).

Yes, I'm in HCM city.
Yes, the area where I took the pictures is district 7.
If you're around District 7, you should see me at the car wash quite often heheh.
at District 1, you should see my car parked next to Vincom Tower.

Yes, it is a complete CF roof. Not an overlay.
The whole piece weights in at 11 lbs approx.

This's the stock roof:


1 piece dry CF roof:

weight in @ 5.5kg = 11lbs.

I agree.
I'm selling my steering wheel locally here.
& I will get the BMW Performance shifter & handbrake, & the new version of the BMW Steering wheel when it's out in August.
It should not leak. The bodyshop already gave the car a bath to water proof test. It's fine.
It's raining season here, I should know very soon!
But thanks for the kind words :-)
