Arrow I declare: WINTER IS OVER...for me! ( LOTS 'o PHOTOS )

Hopefully, there's no more snow accumulation for southeast Michigan... (knock on wood )

After two seasons of spirited drives with TSE ///Michigan, I decided to focus more on overall handling. Since my E90 330i is daily driven, I wanted the ride to be comfortable yet nimble when necessary. In fall 2012, I replaced my ZSP springs with Eibach Pro-Kit but my E90 needed a little more. While not as extravagant as other E9x’s here, I enjoy every minute I spend with my E90. So, I got down to researching and went ahead with the following during this winter:
  • BMW / BBS Style 219M (18x8.5 ET29, 18x9.5 ET23) - Chris @ A R design
  • Continental Tires ExtremeContact (235/40R18, 265/35R18) - TireRack.com
  • Macht Schnell 5mm Spacers + longer lug bolts for Rear (Rear ET23 -> ET18) - Robert @ European Auto Source
  • BMW E93 M3 Front Anti-Sway Bar Kit (28mm) - ECSTuning
  • Alignment - Motowerks Group (Commerce, MI)

Additional items that I procured over the winter:
  • LED License Plate Housings - Jose @ Sonic Tuning
  • 3M Scotchprint Wrap Film 1080 (Brushed Titanium) - Metro Restyling
  • MTECH Rear Spoiler - JBSpeed

Thanks & shoutouts in no particular order:

***Updated with before/after videos in post 14.
***Updated with a clean photo in post 56.
***Updated more photos in post 64.


Loose parts and installation photos:












Mounting & balancing Style 219M's with ExtremeContact's (THANKS DAVE!)





Before installing the E93 M3 anti-sway bar. Avoiding non-existent pylons at 20mph








Installing the E93 M3 Front Anti-Sway Bar








This is after the install. 40mph with more aggressive maneuvering around invisible pylons.






And some night shots of my E90.

If I was in position to order an M3 back when these wheels came in gray and not the silver currently, I would not have even hesitated to stick with the 18".

I absolutely love them on the E9x platform. Nice ride!

yeah man, new parts on my E90 are just a blast. buddy of mine was telling me the 219M's +5mm spacers really changed how my E90 looked while he was driving behind me.
