Before we actually get to the pics, i think a bit of appreciation is deserved...

Firstly, thanks to guys that supplied all the CF stuff. Burgy from Project Shift and Rooi_Willie from the BMWFanatics forum.
Secondly, thanks to Gideon from NeVaG for the hard work put in to get it in tip top shape.
Thirdly, Allistair and his team from X-Flow/Xcede Perfomance for installing the downpipe and setting up the rear end for me.

Big ups to all you guys!!!

Ok Ok... Here are some pics... I promise to have more taken over the weekend!!!

The freshly painted wheels and blood red calipers:




The Boot lid CF Badge:


The CF Performance Boot Spoiler:


The Black Magic Pearl Kidneys and CF Bonnet Badge:


CF Front Bumper Splitter:


Freshly Painted Front Bumper + CF Splitters + Black Magic Pearl Kidneys:



CF Mirror Covers


Then... The rear end I have been looking forward to for a while...

CF 335i Difuser + 2 x 90mm Tail Pipes on either side:








Overall, i am very happy with the way it turned out. The CF really goes well with the Sparkling Graphite and the rear 335i setup looks so evil. I will have feedback on the DownPipe once i have driven the car a bit more, but so far, im loving it.

Feedback is welcomed...

Enjoy

Thanks
Arbee

Thanks for the compliments guys...

Had some dyno time this morning... 2 runs at WRC and im a happy chappy! 178kw and 571nm. Much lower than the reading from KAR but im happy as my figures are consistent.

Heres a quick breakdown.
Stock - 143kw 463nm
Xcede Stage 1 - 171kw 566nm
Xcede Stage 1 + 76mm Downpipe - 178kw 571nm

Xcede (Software) is best bang for buck if as it has the best gains.

I managed to get some better pics:
















Enjoy!

Looks great- I especially love the tails! Always loved me some all-reds... sometimes smoked tails just don't look right. Overall the car is fantastic, just needs at least a little drop IMO. Keep on keepin on!

Porkchop - Thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated. Yeah, i think im the only E90 with cherry red tails. Everyone goes with blacklines... I wanted something different.

Drop, yeah, it is on my list of mods. However, in SA, our roads are crap to say the least. But, at some point, yes, i would love to have her lower.

Your car looks fantastic, Arbee, great progress. How about some pics of the interior with the Aluminum trim? I did the same conversion (wood > aluminum) and could not be happier.

I also added a strut bar, just for aesthetics...





PS - Sorry for the filthy engine bay... I need to get down to cleaning it. It looks terrible!
