Yet Another AW/Fox M...This one is mine!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Whats going on!? I've been lurkin on the M3 forum for about 2 months quietly and patiently digesting information on these machines. I'm originally a FBO+Meth 135i so i knew my future car would be much better yet very different in power and its delivery. Well I found the car i wanted(Minus wheels, i wanted style 219's) in the middle of july and on July 31st i drove of the lot with a CPO E90 M3 with Tech,Premium, Comfort access, Heated Seats, and style 220 wheels. . I love the car and everything about it, the car as a whole is an amazing machine. Handles, accelarates, and brakes like true sports car should. I think that after owning this car i'll be forever loyal to the M brand and to the BMW brand in general this being my 5th BMW. Having been bit by the mod bug early in life, it seems i just cannot leave anything i own stock. Not even my beater 99 Subaru Forester!

Couple days after i got her



As she sits now after the following mods that most were installed by Autocouture Motoring! Luv these guys except that everytime i see them im spending money, it's worse then having a side chick!
KW Sleeves - Sean@Pyspeed Thanks! Installed by ACM
IND Cosmetic Package - Gloss Black Grills,side gills, and body color side marker
BMS 15/12MM Spacers
ACM Exhaust with Active Autowerk Race X-Pipe - Sounds TITS!!!! The sound alone makes up for the lack of power that i was used to.
Cyba Quad Titanium Tips
Revinora RCrt front lip - Will probably switch to BMW performance splitters for daily duties and have the RCRT lip for events since it's so aggressive.
Full LED interior
Velos Designworks Tune with personal Tuner




All pics taken with Iphone 4S

I think she is 90% done for now, just waiting on a good deal on a rear diffuser to come up. OEM+ look for the winter, that way I can decide which direction i'm taking the car in the spring in regards to wheels.

Here is a couple of my previous car.

So you used to live in Nj? Nice mods you have there to start with. My car is white as well and also i have the same lip and it is little too aggressive for Ny roads, but it looks good though.

Btw would you mind to give me some feedback on the KW sleeve kit for the roads here once it's installed? i have been thinking to give it a try since they introduced it.

Nah lived in Westchester my whole life. If that M is the one in your sig it looks like its performance splitters? Anymore pics of them? I'm trying to search btu seems like the search is down right now. I'm really happy with the Kw's I will not be tracking the car so they are just fine, ive read that it does not improve handling but the car definately feels much more planted. It's very comfy too, feels very stock like. Best way to describe is that now on comfort feels like oem normal setting, normal feels like the oem sport setting, and sport just feels about 15% stiffer. Definately best suspension mod if your intrested in an height adjustable suspension, want to keep EDC, and wont be tracking the car.

thanks for the inputs on the Sleeve kit, i'll give it a try definitely. Let me find those pics and i'll pm you with the pics. Btw that plate looked like a Jersey plate to me because of the pale yellow and i didnt read which state it says neither.

Hey man ease up on the HDR, it's taking away from the car!!!

Artistic photos are great, but it keeps me from seeing the detail, especially with your new mods!

AWESOME RIDE

haha I will get them all, even if I have to go one by one!! (didn't know it was that obvious ). Thanks regarding the photos, will have much more soon as I've turned to another subject (new dog).

OP: how much lower does the R-CRT make your front clearance? I really would like to get this lip.

AS you can see from the front end pic. Clearence out front is just enough to fit a keyfob in the upright position
