Looks great,tastefully done; black with lemon is the best colour combo. Be careful you don't take on a real 335 at the lights though!

Yup, looks really good, nicely done. You might want to blank out the street name from photo no.3 so folk don't know your actual location - if that's not your street then no bother .

Try these in white colour, or get the white performance strips.

I liked the rear diffuser.

I've just put 2 coats of SRP & 2 of EGP on my Sapphire Black Sport Plus but I don't think it looks a patch on yours, I know what I'm going to be doing over Easter now!

cheers mate.

i was a bit silly and i didnt check any other colours lol. i should of done it white or grey, i rush in to things to much.

yeah its a nice diffuser i brought it from the dealer for 130 which was on trade as i got a garage.

but they said to me it would fit on the m sport bumper but it doesnt. i had to cut some bits off the bumper.

because the performance e90 m sport bumper is the same, but the diffuser cut out for the tabs on the bumper are different. which the manager at part at bmw didnt know, and i didnt want to give him crap or anything as he is a sound dude.

all the people that have this diffuser on a non m sport performance bumper have to cut there bumper, or it wont fit. some one e90 post show you how much you have to cut to make it fit

well if you need any help on any thing give us a shout

what is SRP and EGP, i hope its nothing to do with paint as am spray paint and body repair tec.

before i used auto glym i used a turtle wax colour magic which was crap, this what i think.

i got my stuff from halfords

i think it all came to 30-40 which isnt bad.

you will need 2 Micro-Fiber Polishing Cloth for the polishing bottles which wilkinson sale for a 1 thats where i got mines from. but for the leather ones i cant remember if it was soft cloth you have to use but the people at halfords will tell you as i asked them and i brought the halfords cloth which you need two and they two for 4-6

this is the one i brought with the cloth
http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...k&iozone=PDPz1

hope this helps mate sorry for the long message
