330ci Progress

Here are some pics of my 330ci progress. Got the biggest mods done. Just wanted your guys opinion on what else I should do.

So far I have front and rear Mtech2 bumpers. Black kidney grills. Angel eyes. Monochrome Roundels. OEM LED Tail lights. M3 spoiler lip. VMR CSL Wheels.

I'm gonna get OEM m3 mirrors and some tint soon. Anything else you guys think would look good? Something subtle and OEM looking.

Yeah was thinking about getting some mtech side skirts. Didn't think at first they would make a huge difference. Still think its not a drastic change... but I think i'll do it.

Haha thanks! Looking for a pair of mirrors. So far i've decided on mirrors, tint, then I want to get aluminum interior trim. Almost done with my goal! Just making sure i'm not missing anything.

Thanks!Yeah i'm thinking about lowering the front a bit. I'm looking to sell the 119's. They have almost brand new tires as well. Less than 1500 miles. I've been away from home for the past week but as soon as i'm back i'm gonna post them for sale.

Looking clean, sides will really tie it together. Some M3 or Mtech would be great.

Thanks guys. Gonna order my side skirts hopefully next week. Still looking to find a good deal on the mirrors. If any of you come across some let me know

I had stock roundels, but I loved how the black just tied in together with the black kidneys and the black bottom grill of the bumper.

RealOEM shows a M3 mirror retrofit. Priced them at $200 each at thebmwpartstore.com
http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...07&hg=51&fg=95

Not sure how the price compares to aftermarket junk though.

+1 on changing the headlamp inserts to black ones. That'll really clean up the front end.

I'm definitely not gonna get aftermarket! They are all mostly m5 replicas and just look a lot bigger. Thats not a bad deal at all. Might have to go with that./

Do you guys know where I can get the black inserts? Haven't exactly decided if I wanna change them yet. I'll have to see a side by side comparison.

They are 19x8.5 ET35 fronts. And 19x9.5 ET33 rears. Had to get my fenders rolled... but it was well worth it! Love the aggressive offset!
