A few updates to my E91

Not posted much new up here for a while and mainly thats because not much has happened at all! Was initially planning to lower my car back in January but having a child under one keeps shifting my priorities all over!

Anyway, next big expenditure is Christmas so I have a while to play a bit

All photos taken on my phone, which has recently decided to go incredibly grainy. Anyways, pre grainy, this is what my car was like last time I posted photos....


Started off with LED license plate lights. Went for some fairly basic ones, just wanted a whiter light rather than lighting my car up like the illuminations! Toying with the idea of LED interior lights too but no rush with that.


New steering wheel, had the bog standard SE one before and this one feels fantastic in comparison.


Then finally today I got round to fitting these, only 7 months later than planned...


They're the Sportlines, wanted a little extra drop though I think the difference is minimal looking at photos. Cracked on with them today in the glorious sunshine, passengers front done, drivers side all on and just fastening the top mount back inside the engine bay and the heavens opened, postponed half done


It finally calmed down a bit later on, out I ran, everything back together and lowered it down. Front looks miles better but makes me realise I need spacers badly haha. Still got to do the back, will do those tomorrow weather permitting. Its also filthy at the moment, hence the lack of shine on the alloys lol.



After that, I've got a performance gearknob and handbreak handle coming from Germany, should be here in a week or so I hope. Then I think I should calm down for a bit... still not been remapped though... and a new exhaust would looked miles better... and blacklines...

Thanks Alex Fronts are 8.5 et38 and rears 9.5 et32. They are LM reps from CM Wheels.

I am tempted to change my wheels for some concave ones rather than big lips, bit easier to keep clean!
