Alpine White E90 ESS, BBS FI and Stoptech content

After installing a set of the most lusted after wheels, it became obvious that the stock brakes just weren't going to cut it anymore. The minimalist spoke pattern of the BBS FI wheel creates an open window to the brakes lurking behind; for this customer, FIs and OEM brakes were hardly an ideal match. Opting for a set of StopTech ST big brakes, the owner of this Alpine White E90 M3 took the opportunity to do things a little bit differently. Rather than going with the popular red or yellow caliper options, he chose blue. The end result works perfectly with the car, with blue looking more subtle than the traditional options but still providing the BBK flair that everyone wants.



Modifications
BBS FI Wheels
BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Front Splitters
BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler
StopTech ST Big Brake Kit
Vorsteiner Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser
ESS VT2-625 Supercharger Kit
Gintani HFC X-Pipe

Ahh, thank you for the clarification. This front end looks much better than the standard E90 sedan.

Very nicely done, but that car is crying for some suspension work.

Are you sure those are OEM splitters? Look like knock offs, or Vorsteiner ones with crap fitment. Other than that, LOVE the car!! E90 <3
