New guy here

Hi all,

Picked up my 08 328i about a month ago and have been lurking on the forums for a couple weeks now so thought it was about time I said hello!

I've been bone stock up until this past weekend -- started with Eibach pro-kit springs. Next is wheels, which I'm still trying to decide on...

Tons of reading to do, but so far, I'm enjoying the e90 forum!

No next is some Bilstien HD shocks. Your stock ones will go fast with those springs. Then do wheels, exhaust, stage 3 intake manifold with an AA tune (if you want 330i power or a little better).

Thanks for the advice! Was there a big ride improvement with the Bilsteins?

Oh yea definitely, the ride got a little stiffer but its worth it. Here is a review from someone else that did it.http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...light=bilstien Basically I agree with him 100%

You mean N54?

I vote titanium BBS CH-R's for the wheels

Did you do the springs yourself or a shop? If it's a shop, do you recommend any good places in LA I can go to? Mine is still bone stock.

FWIW, here are a couple crap photos I took with my phone, which is commensurate to the amount of work I've done to it.

I'll post better ones as I start modding it more! (I'll resize pictures next time too...)
