Progress Thread!!

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to introduce myself as Ted I'm from Suffolk County, Long Island... I'm decently new to the forum and picked up a white '09 E92 335i xDrive this february with 7400 miles... Got it for a sweet deal too! I've taken a bunch of pics since first pickin her up but thats about it... Haven't gone too crazy yet just some small things... I just ordered a bunch of new parts last night.... But here's my progress thread and I hope you guys enjoy it! And hopefully I can find some e90post buddies by me haha

PS: Sorry for the crappy iphone pics its the only camera I have!

Looks great! Maybe you can get a front bumper or front lip to match that nice rear bumper of yours. Perhaps lower the car a little if that's within your budget.

Haha nice spot... Previous owner had a small fender bender and the collision shop they went to was sub-par... if you look at the last couple of pics I just had the front bumper resprayed and both the hood and bumper realigned and the rear bumper installed!!

They are 18's but I commute back and forth from Brooklyn to Boston and go to school in Rhode Island so I was worried about the 19s and all the potholes... I'm lowering it and getting some spacers as of right now but if there's a good deal on some black 19s I won't pass them up!!
