Danny: I pick it up in the morning. 30k mile 07 e90. Pretty much an even swap for my JCW Mini Cooper. Not sure how deep I'll dive into it as it's my daily driver. At minimum, Tune, FMIC, oil cooler and brakes with some body work. I can't decide if I want to go all out with the M3 look or just a set of conversion bumpers. If I need more tire, the M3 setup works best. If I just want a bit better cooling and look, then the conversion bumpers will work. I've got about 5k to spend on the car initially. If I did the M3 bodywork, it'd eat up that budget in a hurry. Even with the used parts I've located.

That and I still have the Lexus IS hotrod.

That is an awesome conversion & I like what you did. Don't mind the negative comments...In the end, it's about making yourself happy & not others.

Hi.

I am doing a same conversion like yours. Need a little advice here.

I saw your picture for the side fender, do you need to change the windshield spray to E92 M3?

And another question is that I am installing a E92 headlight. What will I need to modify.

Please give me your Email. I have E90 M3 vorsteiner diffuser

lolol i said the exact same thing. but i mean it looks good. just dont open your hood when people ask to look at your engine...matter of fact drive very far away from other fast cars, even 335is.

car looks good, i can understand both sides of this "debate" but in the end it's your car and as long as you're happy it's all that matters
