The E90 Adventure of a Lifetime!

Hello All, compared to most of you I am fairly new to the community. I have owned my E90 for about 9 months now, give or take 1-2 months of it sitting due to my AC Compressor dying 2 weeks into ownership

Anyway, I have made some great progress over the past 9 months and wanted to compile everything together purely for myself when I look back in the future and see what I've come from

With spring approaching, I'm very excited with all the new additions I have to come...mainly springs and possibly m-tech bumpers

Without further ado, I introduce my 2006 E90 325i ~Monaco Blue~

BONE STOCK WITH 20% TINTS

HAD SOME OBSESSION WITH PINK FOR A WHILE, REMOVING FOR SPRING SEASON


NEXT, HAD SOME FUN WITH PLASTIDIP


INSTALLED BIMMIAN LICENSE PLATE TOW HOOK

THEN I DECIDED TO GO CRAZY, GOT AN INJEN CAI BUT I HATED SEEING THE CEL ALL THE TIME SO I WENT BACK TO STOCK

FINALLY STARTED SOME EXTERIOR MODS




DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO BE A PART OF THE REAL BMW COMMUNITY

TRIED SOME CSL REPS

BRING ON THE RAWRRRRR (ACTIVE AUTOWERKE )

DECIDED I COULD WRAP TRIM...FAIL STILL HAVENT EVEN FINISHED

AND FINALLY MY PRIDE AND JOY *19" AG M359*


Hope you enjoy I am so excited for this new season to start!!! I will keep you updated with new photos of all the goodies all together

Congrats on your journey. Can't wait to see what else is in store.

Edit: Relatively quiet thread considering that OP is a lady!

Nice progess.. Is the lightbars peeling? I suggest you get OEM blacklines instead. Other than that, looking good!
