My E90 project

Hi, thought it was about time i posted some pictures of my car. I have had the car around 7 months now have slowly been doing bits to it.

The first set of wheels i purchased for my car was a set of 19" CSL wheels which i got bored of very quickly.



I then sourced another set of 19s which i used for a few weeks before i changed my mind.






I then purchased a set of Breyton reps but sold on before i even put them on the car.



This is how it currently stands on 19s Ellipsoid 6 series wheels.









Lets see how long these stay for

Honestly, those wheels didnt lok good on the 6. They look worse on the 3. I like the 1st wheels the most on your car.

I'm quite supprised with the response as whoever seen them in person has only had good things to say, maybe it's a UK thing. Not to worry as I have some American imported wheels that I'm sure you guys will like.

I like them cause there different. What I dont like is the flat black roof would look much better gloss black. And your headlights to dark. A lighter black would be better. What did you do to them anyway?

Wheels are very unique and it looks decent, but those wheels are probably heavy as sh*t. Would look best with some top-shelf wheels, bbs hres or advans.

Did you spray the inside of your headlights? A blackout? Can I see some up close pics from different angles with lights off/on. I intend on doing the same on my black e90
