I hate pre-lci e90's.

But yours is awesome. I absolutely love the clear corners of your headlights. Sooooo much better than the orange and the black alternatives.

Can't wait to see the m3 front. Please delete the fogs and get the m3 air ducts!!

Thanks, I'm not the biggest fan of some of the pre LCI features either, but when I change the hood and bumper out they will be the m3 LCI style which should really freshen things up, I'm with you on the foglights as well, I will be going with the ducts instead.

As far as spacers...depending on your current offset you could add spacers. I currently run et30 in the front and et27 in the rear using spacers.

Okay cool, I might have to meet you guys for the group drive then, sounds cool, and thanks for the invite! You must be Justin right? I'm Chase.
Yes sir, Im justin. Hope to see you at the next event. Join our facebook page if you haven't already.

I bought the car on ebay, the before pics are actually the ones that were originally posted on ebay from the auction, I just used those because I never took my own before shots, but the guy who sold it to me did, so it worked out.

Thank you! I bought the ST coilovers from a seller on Ebay, asking price was $900 OBO, I offered $700 and he took my offer so I was pleased with that price, and the drop is perfect, although we didn't end up using the rear height adjustment piece. The ride is great too, I'm very impressed with ST!

Damn, I just ordered stoptech rotors....glad I read this. I was excited about not having the rust look anymore...guess I better do this..

Beautiful car OP....keep it going. Look into a fender roll before you start adding spacers....pretty much a necessity with this car...

Looks good! Definitely paint those hubs, only takes a couple of days in a rain before that zinc coating comes off.

Those wheels really set that car off.
