Yeah M3 bumper ftw! Up to you on the drop. I'm on H&R sport springs ATM. I wanted to have more money on cosemtic so I did it the cheap way until I can find a good used set of Koni's unless my shocks go bad first. But so far about 25K miles and no problems yet. Of course road conditions where I live is pretty good. I would put at least 10mm in the rear but probably can go 15. Can't wait to see more mods on your car!

Much appreciated educating me and providing info
DEPO is just the brand that makes the "non-OEM" blacklines. They're typically a little bit darker than the OEM BMW Performance Blacklines.

I bought from modmy3.com for warranty reasons. The LED reverse light I bought is from modmy3 as well. The turn signal LED bulb i installed is from DDM tuning. It's their 60 LED amber bulb.

Standard halogen turn signals emit roughly 400 lumens (measure of brightness). The LED turn signals from ddm emit 420 lumens.

I like them.

I do, but none of them from when i put the LED turn signal in, so the amber halogens that they came with make the housings look darker.

I'll snap a few

DUI, also do you mind sharing the actual LEDs that you bought for the front and rear of your E90? I show mine takes 1057 for the front and 1056 for all rear bulbs but neither is listed at DDM, did you have to also install resistors ?

Pics would be great too!

Thanks again !

Reverse light:
http://www.modmy3.com/e9x/bmw-e90/bm...se-lights.html

Front and Rear Turn Signals:
Select SB60 (i got the amber ones for OEM+ look)
http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/1156-7506LED

For the front the "size" is different but the actual bulb is the same. Difference is how it fits in:

1156 has nubs directly opposite from each other:



7507 has nubs offset at an angle:




It was mentioned earlier that one could "modify an 1156 to fit." ^that is what you need to do.
7506 and 1156 is direct fit.
