Question on m3 suspension for your e91

I have a 2010 e91 xdrive and seek to upgrade the oem suspension... Can you share the part numbers you used for control arms, tie rods, end links, sway bars please?

Some subtle upgrades:
-paint matched front lip
-new angle eye bulb
-LED headlight bulb conversion
-new tags!!!

the car is so solid. needs nothing other than regular oil change. 220k+ miles and climbing!

future plan
-ECS tuning front carbon fiber strut brace
-LSD (maybe?)
-keep driving

Edit: Meant to ask how the Corbeau's are on an extended length drive. NIce they have an inflatable lumbar support.

That's what happens when you buy a BMW that was owned by an enthusiast and was well maintained with service records for the first 184K miles

lol that's so true! i was shocked by the amount of documentations there is. the previous owner (who bought it from you) also had a lot of preventative things (gasket, hoses, clutch, bushing etc..) done so the car is in perfect shape.

thanks for taking care of the car! i will keep it running for as long as i can!

thanks! the corbeau seats are fine. it is way harder than OEM since there's almost no padding but the lumbar support helps. I wouldn't go on a cross country road trip in them but i've done 5 hr drive in traffic and it's doable.

Ah Ok, then I will fab some mounts for my SRD's if I go that route. I use them in My E30 M3 and sometimes they see duty in the E36 M3.

Is that a dash camera hanging from the mirror or a radar device?

if you are looking for a mount i actually have a set of brand new seat mount for e90/e91. i ordered the corbeau e92 mount but soon realized unlike the e92, the e90/e91's seatbelt actually mount to the factory seat. so in order to run aftermarket seat with factory seatbelt, you have to mount the seatbelt to the base mount. i was able to make it work with the e92 seat mount by drilling a hole and mount the seatbelt at the bottom of the rails. the e90/e91 seat mount i ordered had a welded bracket for the seatbelt so you don't have to fabracate anything.

and yes, there's a dash cam and a radar detector hardwired near the mirror.
