This is outstanding, Makes me jealous though as it looks very similar to my car!

Awesome amount of work has gone in to that, well done!

Thanks all

Guess that means you have good taste then Claws



Got Some E90 mirrors from VasJ he'd already started fitting the drivers one but some muppet decided to modify his car before he'd finished

A few hours with belt sander/air saw/drill I got the drivers one something like it should be still needs a small adjustment to get the top edge where I want it, altho the triangle is the same shape it's a different size so a bit of creativity is going to be required to make them look factory & I'm going to have install the motors from an E46 as the E90 is canBus.

My Ride: Knows Dubstep SUCKS






What an incredible ride. Slap some LED tails and you are gold (I may have missed it if you said you were going to do that).

Seriously, AMAZING work man.

Amazing job. EPIC. That was a great read, thanks!

Kudos to your insane mechanical skills, sir.

I never realized how slick the E90 mirrors look on an E46. It really makes it look more modern. I officially hate my dumbo square mirrors now. I wish it was an easy mod to do.

I have to admit, the more work I saw being done, the more I kept thinking about this question.

This is one awesome build thread!
Thanks so much for sharing.

The style 72 wheels look good as in black.
I think I might eventually paint mine black as well.

I would assume anywhere between the equivalent of $15,000 to $25,000 USD. I've considered this route, but I don't know if any of the shops around here are good with electronics enough to attempt to incorporate the CANBUS unit so I have functioning gauges and ABS. Traction control is something I could do without. One shop told me I could just use an aftermarket instrument cluster and re-run the fuel level sensor lines so I can see how much gas I have left.
