Ok guys, another small update

Went down to visit my mate and he did a couple of mods to my car

First he tried out his new snow foam, first time i had seen it done, must say it has the cool factor, i really must get it.



Now the mods

Vinyl wrap on the steering wheel, so much better looking now that theres something to break up the blackness.



Second mod was a tint on the reverse lamps, i never liked the white as it stood out too much, so i thought i'd get them vinyl wrapped. Its a change from all the blacklines you see on here, ive only seen this mod done on one other car on e90post.

Garage List
is this non sport ride height? With wheels like that, you need a drop...

Finally got the coilovers fitted on Saturday, was a really awkward and time consuming job to do but we got there in the end, fronts sitting at round 80mm, rears are all the way down as far as they will go, thought it would have went lower at the back but i suppose if i went any lower i wouldnt be able to carry anyone in the back

feels a bit more bouncier on the road, but really sticks to the tarmac like glue, the more i look at it the more i am happy with the ride height. Practical enough to get over any bumps without too much hassle

What coilovers?
Drop looks great, want something similar on mine.
Wasn't a fan of the tails at first, but they've grown on me. Looking good!

you can improve the rear by getting some chrome exhaust tips. I think it will look great

hey Aaron, since fitting the coilovers I assume your still running a 9.5j ET27 rear with 265/30/19 any rubbing? You reckon you can run a 275 or possibly a 285 in there?

Yes mate, still got the 9.5j on 265, it will only rub on bumps if there is someone sitting in the back of the car.

I doubt you would be able to run without trouble on a wider tyre than 265.

Monster energy sticker... Really?

If it had no stickers on it, it would be a different class. I like some of the bits you've done though, Im currently saving to mod my 325 but saving for genuine stuff and living a life is hard on a normal wage lol.

Monster energy sticker is no longer on the car mate but thanks anyway, i can appreciate that in this current economic climate it can be hard to get by, just keep saving and you will eventually reach your goal
