Red face Amini77 Build Thread

First day I got the thang Summer 2011..



Then I found E90post and the modding began. My first mod was Depo LED Blacklines then I got a resonator delete.





Couple months later around June or July 2012 I got wheels. This was my first serious mod because I started making a little money. I also put on amber-gones on my headlights.




So this is when I realized I needed a drop. I won a 50% discount off ST Coils from LTMW. I asked them if they can exchange it for KW's they said yes but it'll only be a 30% discount which I was still ok with obviously.





Then I started getting into photography so I did my first photoshoot.




It didn't come out too good so I went online and starting learning how to take better pictures so here are the results in February 2013:





Couple months later I hit the track!





Then this IS350 went off roading in front of me and splashed rocky mud all over my car



Now the beginning of LCI conversion! I was getting way too sick of the Depo's.








Soon after tragedy hit my e90 dislocated its knee.






A couple weeks later and $2,000 she was back up and running so I got her spacers!

Another big thanks to IKonic Auto Garage for their excellent service for everything I've brought my car in for.


Here's a shot with the front end lowered more with spacers on:



My most recent photoshoot from probably little less than a month ago:





So that's all here's my woman's, my E90's, and I 2 year anniversary



She said she didn't notice how far it came until I showed her this picture



Sadly, we're saying bye to big daddy of our BMW's this weekend. I'll miss it.




So that's all for now, more to come when I throw on some more mods. Next is either between an M-tech Rear or M-sport front.

UPDATE:

It's goooooone, lucky owners driving away with it.



10/22/2013

New M-Tech rear bumper installed coming up before the year ends - headlight housing/AE upgrade then an M3 front bumper. Also the x5 was replaced with a 535i. Man that thing is fast compared the the 3er.

Before/After below








11/9/13

Performance spoiler added!



12/4/13

M3 front bumper is on. Finally my front end is almost as aggressive as the rear




12/12/13

Some pics and exhaust clip before I do the 2ndary cat delete






Here's a (iphone) picture filling up with 100 octane. I was curious how it would feel. I had a quarter tank of 91 octane already in my tank, I decided to put just a gallon of 100 octane since its a crazy $10 (1:4 ration I heard its like 93 octane which is what I was aiming for). No difference, its not worth the extra $ but could be for turbo'ed cars. Although I did a lot better than I did last time against a 2013 Genisis Coupe 2.0t.



Screen shot of a video from the Paul Walker Memorial:



A couple guys have been asking me about my exhaust set-up past couple months so here's a video finally before I go in for a 2ndary cat delete:



Update: 8/19/2014

Catless headers installed. Currently I'm running no primaries, secondaries, and no resonator with a Remus muffler. I'll be adding a Magnaflow Resonator to quiet it down and will soon be adding a new exhaust clip. Also I threw on a set of Michelin PSS. They handle so much better compared to the V12's I had, also they look beefy with the same specs.

Thanks guys!! I'm leaning towards the msport front bumper because the front end the least bit aggressive at the moment.

It's easy to spend on mods when you don't have to pay for the car.

well that was rude and you don't know the person. Why do you think he didn't pay? Do not assume anything when you do not know him.
