Hi RikuE90:

Thanks for the weblinks and pictures. It looks great. But I probably will get the original BMW 225M wheels instead. It looks good and should be much easier to get.

I bought mine at the Japanese book store named TOMATO in TST. However, I think mine is the last copy in that book store.

Hi everyone!

I have a question about my car...
In most Eurpean cars these days; eg. Golf GTI, Audi A4s etc all comes standard with auto sensing lights.

This is also standard for the E90 even if its not with Angel Eye Xenon setup.

I'm just wondering; since most cars nowadays comes with this feature when u unlock or lock your car via remote, lights switchs on; so ur visible with where you park. Also it looks awesome; does the E90 halogen model do this job? If no can anything be done to do so?

I tried by switching the light switch to auto, it doesn't do the remote thing I want...

hm....

cheers!

Do you mean the headlight turns on when you press the remote? If so, then the answer is NO.

In your Car's menu (not for the first batch of the 2005 E90), you can select whether the turn signal will flash when you lock or unlock the car with remote.

Also, there is a feature that you can select for when you exit the car. After you turn this feature on and select the time duration, you can have your headlights turn on by pulling the light stalk once. Then the headlight will stay on as long as you set for its duration.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Btw, is Koni FSD available in HK for E90? or NA spec the same? I know FSDs are available in de States.

*update*

The Koni FSD is available in HK. You can also get Koni springs too. One of the member already got the Koni installed. :rocks:

Hi Riku,

Do you know where I can find a picture of the member's car? Want to see Koni spring ride height on E90 with FSD.

I'm thinking FSD with Eibach ... which evers the best in comfort.
Also I'm wondering wheres the best place for spacers in HK, quality & price wise. Looking for 12mm spacer for rear. 10mm or 12mm ??!! actually still confused...

cheers.

Hi ikbs,

There is no photo of the FSD E90 yet. You can pm loulouyan. He just got it installed after our HK11 meet. As he said, it is very comfortable. He also bought the Koni spring from the HK Koni dealer in MK.

I didn't use any spacer in my car. Actually, JoeBlack and I are now researching about spacers to be put in his car. Personally, I would prefer to buy those brand name spacers than those custom-made one in HK. Eibach and H&R makes spacers for BMW cars. We have checked. These can be ordered from the HK distributors.

One more things, the H&R spacers are made out of Aluninum&Magnesium alloy for lighter weight.

guyz n girls.

may I know anyone uses eibach springs on OEM damper here?
I'm currently sitting on BM sports upgrade springs... and they bounce & does not look agressive at all.

I'm considering eibach pro kit springs which gives another 10mm lower compare to BMs 15mm...

any of you rekon theres warranty issue with BM?
any comments?

best is ofcourse replace damper too but thats the plan for next year...

only under curiosity.

Thanks.

For the warranty, BMWHK will void the warranty on the suspension but normally what will go wrong with the suspension anyway?

If you are planning to replace the shocks in the near future, why not do it at one time and save labour cost
