Ok this is the 3rd time ive typed this out on my ipad (left laptop at work ) so bear with me while i save at every paragraph... Ipad keeps crashing so please bear with me!

Anyway,

Evening all, I picked up my e91 320d last saturday.



I have already wrapped the front grills in satin black and de-badged the rear.

Plans are to get a 335d diffuser and exhaust fitted, tint the rear windows and add 1m replica wheels.

Hopefully it should look something like this...



So, on to my questions...

Is my car a 177 or 184 model? (its an 09 with stop/start)

Replica wheels, where's the best place to purchase 1M replica wheels? I fancy some concave and the only place ive found them so far is bmautosport?

Best place for a remap?

I have the small screen satnav with a disk needed to show the maps. Can i upgrade this to newer maps easily or is it better to upgrade to the newer satnav system?

Can i easily upgrade the car audio? I presume i have the base system. Upgrade underseat subs, fit tweeters, front comps and a centre speaker, with a small combined sub and amp package in the boot? Whos the audio guy sround here

Sorry for the questions etc. i had to fit them in before the ipad crashed safari again

Any help will be appreciated!

Cheers

Ollie

Edit: and after all that its in the wrong bloody section! Could a mod move it please

A bit off topic, but just download the Google Chrome app. It's better than Safari.

09 plate? Thats a 184...

If you use the DVLA veichle checker and quote us the Co2 that would confirm it

The plate has no bearing. I found this out with a 116i LCI which I assumed had a newer more tax efficient engine. Look on the plate inside the drivers door and it will tell you what the engine is. That is all that matters

Another +1 for those wheels!

I'm afraid that you're not allowed to ask questions about audio upgrades on here until you've read the sticky

Completely forgot i even made this thread!

Yes that pic is a Potatochop. Ive got the wheels from chris at CMwheels. See pics on my other thread in gen chat or on chris's for sale ad in the uk classifieds. On offer At the moment and chris is a pleasure to deal with!

I'll check the vin etc for the bhp. Its 100 a year tax if that helps. Not bothered Bout the remap at the moment tbh. Putting some money aside for the gladen upgrade.

130g/km co2.

Shortie, Yes car select Birmingham. They didn't budge much on price but tbh it was near on 1500 squid cheaper than any others advertised at the time and was legit. I think if i got there later in the day it would have been gone!
