Cool Arbee's E90 330d

Hi Guys,

Im from South Africa and have had my E90 for about 7 months now. I sold my E46 330i and bought the E90 330d.

I have done a bit to the car since i purchased it and still getting a few more mods completed.

Pics:
Stock, the day i saw her at the dealership






She is a 2007, E90 Sportpack 330d. Bought her with 114k km and FSH.

More pics of the progress to come.

Thanks
Arbee

Then i Changed the interior wood trim to the Brushed Aluminium trim. Looks so much better.
I added HID's to the headlights and fogs. Plus changed all the interior and exterior bulbs to LED's.

Then Plasti Dipped the Kidneys in Black


Cleaned and Polished the Tail Pipes

Next: Software by Xcede Performance.




Before Software: 130wkw 443nm
After Software: 177wkw 566nm

The software had not adapted completely at this time as the car was dyno'd, file was loaded and then dyno'd again. So, in a space of an hour the car picked up 47kw and over 100nm with just software.

I dyno'd a few weeks later and it made 181wkw and 615nm.

So, not much has been done to the car since the software. I have done some maintenance on her, oil service and filters.

But, in the next few days i shall be busy.

Installing a Downpipe next week and converting the rear bumper setup to the 335i style with the double exit tail pipes and hiding the standard tails in effort to reduce the amount of soot building up on my boot and bumper.

Then, the front bumper is getting repainted and im adding a list of Carbon Fibre accessories to break the Grey!

More pics to come through soon, but here is just one teaser...

Car is coming together nicely. Very impressive gains from the tune.

Also - could you share the part number on the Performance rear spoiler? Thanks!
