My Barbera Red E90 Saloon

Hello E90 Community,

I have recently bought an E90, i saw this car on the approved website and initially thought naa, but after seeing it pop up in my searches over the week it started to grow on me. When i went and saw it in real life - i fell in love. My previous 2 beemers, a black e36 compact (college days) then the silver E46 saloon (uni days) - loved both beemers and thought it would be a nice change to have a unique colour this time.

I put on 19inch BBS LMS replicas (waiting on carbon red BBS center caps). I really want to do a LCI conversion and hoping someone here can either sell or point me in the right direction.

All opinions (good and bad) are welcome.

TheOpportunist.

Colliers waters lane is a nightmare! I'd hate to know how much your insurance is, that area isn't friendly for it!
