To anyone who is going to replace the radiator, be sure to purchase #11 and #12 because the o-rings will be no good.



A few pics of the action:







Bad picture because of the sun, but I was able to finally get the rear door panels installed. It's so nice having all of my speakers working again lol



and finally! red push button ftw

Impressive. The amount of work you put it in, it must be rewarding to look at and drive your E90 now. Keep it up

Thanks for all of the feedback guys!

For the first time, today I switched my JB4 to map 5 and put a 30% E85 mix in. All I can say is.....HOLY SH*T what a freaking difference. I'm not sure why it took me so long to try this but I'm glad I did. I now have the bug and want to buy an android tablet to run the MHD back end flash.





Oh and I bought some BC coilovers and will be installing them soon!

Hey man I remember you from back in the day! You first had the MR E92 M3 with the gunmetal 219M’s. Then after that you picked up the Space Grey E92 328i. Congrats on the E90! Night and day difference with the way you modded her! Saddle brown/black looks sick with the aluminum trim. Only thing I’d suggest are a set of OEM black lines and M-Sport bumpers.

Awesome job mate and the saddle brown is beautiful. The amount of work you must have put in, and so quickly, is epic and as a bonus you’ve improved the resale value of the car considerably.

Do you have the part number for the O ring? Not seeing it on RealOEM

Hey man it's awesome to hear from you. I remember seeing you posting around way back when. I've had too many cars man lol. I'll be keeping this one for a while. I am torn between going OEM blackline or sourcing a LCI trunk and doing LCI tails. M-sport bumpers are a definite thing, eventually I'll get some on there

The saddle brown goes so well with the sparkling graphite. I love opening the door everytime I drive it and seeing all of the brown. I don't think I'll ever get rid of this one

In the process of the coilover install right now. I was able to get the fronts on and adjusted evenly on both sides. The height is perfect and I can't wait to get some pictures on here of how it will be sitting.

I didn't take too many pictures, but I'm still working on the rear. I'll be finishing everything up tomorrow morning.



You know your shocks are blown when you compress them and they don't even go back up LOL



Almost back together!

I actually reached out to BC themselves on how to adjust the rear preload. Here is the link they sent me. Although it's not a BMW, the process is the same.



Coilovers are on!!

Turned out nice! I actually installed my BC's today as well. After my post above, I just went ahead with the install. Reading the instructions, it seemed like they were already set for preload and the ride height just needed adjusted. I cant get my tires mounted until Wednesday so I have to wait.

Nice man. Yeah it wasn't too bad. They ride great so far. I have everything set at full soft but can already tell I need to go harder in the rear as it feels really floaty.

Yeah I'm pretty OCD so I always pay attention to the small details. I definitely thought about doing it all at the same time but I didn't want to wait haha. It is something I want to do in the future though.

I am thinking about going for a brand new BMW Performance exhaust. Opinions/thoughts?

Let me know where you get the PE exhaust, I am looking at getting possibly a new or used one.

Did you have to make any fender modifications to make the 219's fit?

I'm talking to a few BMW dealers via eBay to try and get the lowest price possible for a new one. I will let you know once I make a desicion.

Nope. After installing the coilovers I will probably add a 5mm spacer all around or 5mm in the front and 8 in the rear.

Got a RB PCV valve!



I also did the $2 BOV mod today
