E92 LCI Se conversion to M Sport + M3 style fenders Vermillion Red Metallic

I thought I will share with some pictures of my new pride and joy - E92 330i LCI in Vermillion Red Metallic.
Currently I done M Sport conversion (not complete) with M3 style fenders and M3 tri-colour stitched steering wheel and 8D 'wet' carbon wrap.
Planned mods on the way:

To complete M Sport conversion - door sill covers;
Steering wheel m sport trim covers;
M sport handbrake handle;
M3 Style side skirts;
Black tinted windows;
Eibach Pro Street Lowering kit (hate the wheel arch gaps car have now);
Wheel Spacers;
335i style exhaust;
My previous vehicle been E92 335i 06 plate and I really do miss the exhaust note it has, I must have it back, but have no idea what option would the best choice? Any thoughts or recommendation?

I hope you like my new Cherry lady

Looks great, but that wheel gap needs to go.

The fitment is great however they should have blend the paint as is little off and it will probably show even more at night under some neon light.

Thank You guys that you like it, still a long way to go to finish it off.
At the moment I have to wait for spring time, need to put Christmas away and a bit to save up.
I bought this car as salvage with front damage and only 8k miles on the clock. This is my second salvage, as previous 335i bought a salvage as well. Repair and fitment carried out by my self, only the respray does my friend.
I have some pictures of damage if interested.

I bought it of UK eBay, link to have a look - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1917230846...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

It claims that is the most realistic carbon vinyl available, but still far of the real one, however still looks great.
Will do some more closer pictures at the weekend if British weather will allow it

Did try my very best with the fitment
Agree about the colour, been promised almost 100% match but unfortunately came out a bit off, still haven't done buffing, so it might will get a bit better, if not than blending will have to do the job.

Exhaust must go, but I specifically only interested into 335i style one. No disrespect to people who done quad exit tips, the vehicle from the link above looks gorgeous, but I prefer twin exits instead of quad. What do you thing about fabricate 335i exhaust and muffler delete?

I want to do the same thing. The issue with the paint color is the general rule of thumb is you are suppose to do the adjacent panels, in this case the door, hood and skirts for a perfect match which obviously isn't ideal cause it would be expensive. Looks good though.

Well, in my case I had fenders, hood, front & rear bumper painted in one go, because of the damage vehicle had. I believe doors & rear bumper blending should make things a bit better the rest I'll leave it as it this. A lot of spending ahead anyway

You need to fix that wheel gap ASAP. I don't think I've ever seen an E9x with that much gap.

Not trying to copy M3, but I always loved m3 fenders, so I thought I will get it done, still want to do m3 side skirts, the rest will leave it as it is, don't want m3 replica

Hello fellas!

Finally I am back as promised with some pictures of my recent modification I carried out - lowering springs installed and got rid off that ugly gap
I believe it looks a bit better than it was

I done with Eibach Pro Kit, M Sport bump stops, no shocks replaced
Ride is so much better, handles so superb that I am a bit shocked and surprised as I did not expect it to ride so well.
Don't use SE bump stops, go with M Sport on SE shocks.
Also on 335i I had Bilstein B4 Sports with Eibach Pro kit and shorter (z4 & e36) bump stops and I wasn't very happy with it.
The SE shocks and M Sport bump stops does much much better job in every way!

Interior picture as a bonus to have a look at M3 steering wheel

The next big thing is M3 Style side skirts, should have it on in the month or so.
Will keep you posted guys!
