Hi guys, I recently bought a 2006 E90 with sport and luxury package from a great 1st owner. Owned by a wife who drove it to work 3-4 times a week to work and back where her work was only 4 miles away. Now that she is expecting a child, the family wanted to upgrade. She got a new X5 and he got a brand new M3

I got the car with 21k miles on it. My first car was a handy down hummer from my father which ended up getting stolen. I absolutely loved that car. It had a 24in tv in the roof for the backseat and a 8in tv in the passenger side visor as well as an xbox haha. It also had a full exhaust and sounded so mean. I would go off-roading almost every week, jumped it, and all around had a blast. A very strong car with no problems ever, I still miss it at times. Yet it was annoying at times, very hard to get into parking spots at times and the gas issue… The H2 got 6-8mpg and was sometimes $170 to fill up. Needless to say it was very hard to hold onto any money when you're working minimum wage jobs in school and paying that much for gas every week.

Having insurance money to get a new car, I wanted to make sure I got a smaller car in general with much better gas mileage I absolutely love this car, driving it is a HUGE difference from first driving an H2, so much quicker and turning in it is a dream. I remember driving it home it felt so smooth and I was shocked when I looked down and realized I was driving 110 mph on the freeway, honestly thought I was driving 70mph.

Anyways, after getting the car I have made these small modifications:
Black Gloss Rims on style 161’s
Piano Black Grill (ModMy3.com)
Gloss Black Ambergone Vinyl (Thanks to bluebat)
Tint 35% All
White Angel Eyes

Future Mods:
Blackline Taillights
M3 Front Bumper

Please post some suggestions and what you think! It’s been great being a member of this forum, really informative and fun

Off to a great start! I think Mtech bumpers would be a great next step (may be slightly biased). Mine are from JGMods -- check out the link in my sig.

Cartwheel, terrible. Car, not so bad. Normally I would say no to painted stockers, but it looks alright. Blacklines agreed.
