Darra7's new car e92 320D

As of the 29th august i will be the new owner of a E92 320D and i cannot wait!
pictures:









The current plans i have to do to the car are:

Coilovers - KW Varient 2. should be on just after christmas.

Roof wrapped black (a mod everyone does but i still like it)

Tint rear windows - will be limo black

Front lip (ARKYM Aerosport) - This is a maybe depending on money

re-map - Can anyone recommend a decent re-map for the 320D (184bhp)

Iphone 5 cradle - is there any difference in this cradle that just plugging it in with the usb?

De-cat - is there anypoint in this?


C&C welcome!

thanks in advance (if you answer the questions) haha

darra


EDIT: also thinking of putting spaces on (depending on ride hight and how the wheels sit) and wrapping the interior trim!

also a pics of my old car...




Edit x 2 : list is getting longer! An exhaust aswell! double tip as someone said below

Also what's the difference in LCI and non LCI? Just date of manufacture?

Nice buy mate!!!

Welcome to the forum!

KW is a nice bit of kit... may be a little overkill for your needs as it is only a 320 and i cant see you tracking the car...
You can save quite a bit by opting for some BC Coillovers

The Arkym lip is nice, but just becareful when you go low as you may rip it off fairly soon lol but thats what going low is all about

White looks stunning, enjoy!

Personally I would go for a twin exhaust on that rear end, will look the nuts, it'll need to be a custom job, something like this http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=674237

Think I'd rather not know what's happening at home when I'm on holiday.... What can you do when your thousands of miles away?!

Nice car though, the Sport Plus model added some nice extras.
