Default re: Poor Man's M3 - Alpine White BMW 320d @ 110,000 KMs

Hey guys No update since i was banned. Anyways time to update this thread.

Car is now lowered on kw v2 height adjustable as well as dampening adjustment coilovers. It now is really conformatble and handles like a real bmw!

Got bored of the 18" rubber so now I am running 19" wheels with 235 35 19, 265 30 19. Pics coming soon. Wheels are same as the orange m3.

Check out this video too you can see the new wheels and no existant fender gap cause of lowering.

There are two adjustments one is the purple nut in the middle of shocks below the springs. It can be rotated to high / low the car. A small nut on top of the shock can be rotated to hard / soft suspension.

Hey Taran,
I meant how do you determine which setting is best, meaning if you are driving fast on highway in morning and need comfortable setting for your date how do you get to know t he best setting and how do you manage the perfect setting on all the wheels.

Thanks!

Keep on ripping.
By the way, which iPhone do you have?
I wanted to know how good (or bad) is the GPS that you have in it? Features, use-ability?

There are sixteen settings for hard/soft.

Im on 4th level down from most hard. Its more of hit and trial. Once you adjust it according to your age you are good to go.

0-5 setting for 20-25 years old
6-10 for 25-30

And so on I'm sure. Lol.

Lovely interpretation, most sportscar buyer are going through midlife crisis. Hopefully there is a setting for them as well. If your iPhone isn't good at stills, it sure does 1080p videos
Enjoy the beast and hopefully we get to see more videos from you. Cheers!

Well I'm 24 . I will surely do some driving videos. The e90 is a beautiful car. It will be classic soon with the arrival of f30.

You haven't tuned your car yet have you? How about getting it wrapped with vinyl to make it matte white -
Got Matte?? Murdered e92 wrapped in Matte white......Story inside - BMW 3-Series (E90 E92) Forum - E90Post.com

It looks sick. BTW where did you order those front splitters from? I'm planning to get those, along with the mirror covers and spoiler in carbon fibre. Well replicas obviously.

No bro I haven't and don't even plan on doing so. I think the n47 engine is already at its peak performance.

And the matte white wrap is just sick. I mean it would perfectly match a alpine white car + no issues from cops either. But i have to find the perfect guy for it. I am wrapping my roof in cf next week.

Google jbspeed he has everything for the e90 on his website. And great prices. Don't go for cf mirror covers, save and upgrade to e90 m3 mirrors. They are bolt on and about $1000.

There are one or 2 people in Bombay who can do it, and I think have already wrapped cars. Though it would probably cost about half as much as a paintjob.

I've looked at JB speed. The BMW power kit is on my mind, so no extra money to pay for M3 mirrors and all.
