Another E91 project on the forum

I seem to be one of the cool kids after seeing a spate of e91 threads pop up.

Always liked tourers, if they made an m3 I'd have it but frankly I'm amazed they put the n54 in an estate. Had it a yr in Aug and I love it!

Anyway here it is;
Pre lci 335I se
Prof nav
Sunroof
Fold away tow bar
Pdc front and rear
Dab
Heated lecky leather
Adaptive xenons
Etc etc

Extras;
active autowerk fmic
BMW Performance carbon interior
M sport wheel
Full interior led upgrade
Led licence plate lights
Led angels
Smoked led side repeaters
Led front indicators (same 92smd canbus bulbs in the rear threw up errors?!?)
Led dogs and reverse lights
Darklines
Carbon badges, wheels, trunk, bonnet, steering
Bms dual cone intake
Jb4
Bilstein shocks
Eibach springs
BMW 19inch 230s
20mm spacers on the back (front is now cryin out for em)
Roof rail delete
M sport rear bumper
M sport ish front bumper (I like it but it was on it when I bought it and I dunno what it is! Anyone know?!?)
Black kidneys
Not a single m badge anywhere
What else... What else
Ooooh I have bought the following but not fitted yet
Ar catch can
Cyba black chrome tips
Ar down pipes
Supersprint catless mid section (for track use you understand)

Next jobs
Quaife LSD
Maybe cic upgrade.....

Anyway here it is, crap smartphone pics in my hotel carpark, will get better when the tips are on and its detailed









Oh and I had permission to be in the disabled spot just for the piccy

Also considering ditching the 230s for a set of 6 series ellipsoids like I saw on an e90 on here

Thoughts?

Not for me at all. Coming from VAG cars I like that whole OEM+ thing but they're a step too far.

Nice those alloys suit the car well. What spacers you gonna go for on the front - 10mm? Also I guess the offset of those 230's makes the wheels stick out more than an MV3 for example as they are only orginally found on E92/3?

Cheers mate, I reckon I could get away with 15s. Gonna fit the 20s to the front and work backwards....

Not sure about the offsets. I know the pre lci motors sit more in the arches,

Here's a pic pre spacers on the rear

Will no doubt sound immense.

Am new to the tourer experience. but loving it so far.

Have been looking for threads through google and this one came up, are there many modified tourers?
I personally think they are the best looking out of the bunch and would like to see more tastefully modified ones in uk?!?

Very nice indeed,but I'm biased!-don't know if you have driven a standard 335 with msport suspension but would be interested in what the comparison with that and your set up was like...

I use a works 320d m sport a fair bit. the bilstein eibach combo is certainly firmer and a bit crashier but then the m sport is a dam site more 'focused' than any other of our cars.
