Hi all, how is everyone doing?

Well hopefully i will be able to "finally" get my car in next end next month ( or well beginning Nov ), I am looking into Various Body-Kits for the E90s. I wondering do any of u have suggestions on which shop i can go look at or which shop u guys would recommend for install/paint (or i should go with BMW HK) ?.

Coz I dont have any experience about carshops in HK since i only came back to HK for 2yrs now. And some friends tell me that some carshops in HK are not that "honest" and told me to find one with better reputation and careful, so I ask for suggestions law.

Thanks Guys =)

*Looking into adding Full M-tech Body kit with Front Bumper CF splitters and BMW CF Diffuser and BMW CF Spoiler ... (or maybe another brand but unsure at this point)

Thanks again

Hi cool

U are the only HK guy in this forum I see that ordered the E90 335i. Nice to hear that yr car will arrive soon. When will the exact time?

Mine will be arrive "soon" also according to what the salesman said. May possibly be mid of October. Maybe we are the same batch.

What options you have added for your car?

Maybe we can shop together.

What kind of modifications you are planning for your car?

According to the latest info from the Sales, i apparently missed the Oct delivery and need the Early / Mid Nov delivery for me.

for options, i got the Sp Seats, Sports Spens, Navi. What about you?

and for the mods, i am planning the M-tech kits with CF split infront, CF Diffuser, and probably CF Spoiler (hoping the CF color will look good MontegoBlue).

How about you, what mods u plan ?

Mid of Nov...??? So late... Seems not worth oh.... Just one more month will goes to 2008.

For options, I add Sports Seats and Sports Suspension only. Seems everybody will add this two. No Nav ah... With navi so you will include i-drive also. Pretty good oh... Maybe it's good for you if you come back to HK not so long.

I think I will add the rear spoiler only. I pretty like those original front spoiler with the chrome trim.. And also, the metal pedal from BMW original. I will try to ask the salesman I buy the pedal from them and install for me for free when the car arrive in HK. I'm not sure he will accept or not. As they always charge a lot for the workmanship.

I will definitely plan for the rims also. I don't like the original one.

I don't see any reason why there is issue running Eibach springs with Sport suspension shocks unless the garage did a bad installation

question for e9x owners with idrive--is the nav hdd based (like japan) or dvd based? i have an e90 335 with idrive (hdd based japan model), so i am wondering if it would be possible to switch to to hk nav if i move to hk from tk and bring my car. if the cost is under 5k usd, then i will probably bring my car.
