Oops! Accidentally modded the wife's E90 LCI

So I'm not sure what happened exactly...

I know my wife's E90 (which was bone stock) just needed new tires a few weeks ago, and while looking for replacement tires for her OEM wheels, I somehow came across a set of Style 219m wheels for a price I couldn't pass up.

After throwing the wheels on her car, next thing I know more parts are on order... grilles, springs, bulbs, splitters, spoiler, etc. lol

Luckily, my wife ended up loving how her car looks now, so i'm in the clear haha..


Mods include:
-BMW Style 219m wheels (18x8.5" +29 and 18x9.5" +23)
-Michelin Pilot Super Sport Runflats (225/40 and 255/35)
-Wheel locks
-LCI TPMS sensors (extra set)
-M3 lip spoiler
-LCI Front splitters
-Painted front reflectors
-Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs
-LUX E90 LCI halogen V2 angel eye bulbs
-M4 style gloss black kidney grilles
-GP Thunder 7500K superwhite V2 H7 low beam bulbs
-GP Thunder 7500K superwhite V2 H8 fog light bulbs
-Euro headlight switch w/rear fog
-Wind&Fire LED courtesy door light w/BMW logo
-Weathertech DigitalFit all-weather floor mats
-20% window tint
-Gloss black plate frame
-Coding



Did a little photo session for her yesterday. Aiming to take some pics of our cars together once I clean my E92 up.

Enjoy and let me know what you guys think!
































And some of the both of our rides together...























For reference, here's what her car looked like about 2-3 weeks ago.

Ha! I love it. It's weird... parts just randomly end up on my car as well from time to time. I still don't have an explanation for the wife as to how that happens either

You have a good woman sir. My wife hates my car, although that's probably a good thing.

Absolutely gorgeous, well done mate!

How did you manage to have the angel eyes on without the amber markers on?

You can code out the side markers and add the AE to drl.

OP- How are the LUX AE in direct Sun light? are they dim or at least visible?

BTW the ride is looking great for something so accidentally done . Glad your wife likes it as well man.

Nicely done OP.

I did this on my wife car but it was not by accident. Took her JGC and replaced it with JGC HA Hemi over an evening. She didn't know but I had it planned out.

Not to mention a lot of noticeable mods. But I did get it in her favorite color.

Yes, it's lowered on Eibach pro-kit lowering springs on stock xDrive shocks. The springs are meant for RWD, but they work just fine on the xDrive shocks.

There is slight rubbing in the rear on dips on the highway and hard turns.

I do intend to get the fenders rolled ASAP.

Thank you!

I had the car coded so that ONLY the angel eyes come on as the DRL.

They're okay... definitely brighter than stock, but because they have "less" color than the stock angel eyes, it kind of cancels out the brightness (in pure daylight). They're certainly visible though. Worth the upgrade for sure though.
