    So I spose I'll start a thread on my car. I will probably use this as much to ask for advice/help as I will to show what I have done. I am an absolute beginner when it comes to any of this, not afraid to admit it. So I am learning as I go. If you notice me doing something dumb, feel free to smack me.

    So here goes: 2008 e91 329i 6spd

    So far I've:
    Replaced the interior lights with LED's
    Got a blacked out front grille.
    Now I've got 19" vmr v710's need to pick up some new tires for the rears before I put them on for the summer though.






    Up next: Coilovers, and I really need to get rid of those hideous orange markers in the headlights.

    Nice and agree modded wagons are great. I was just looking at a 2000 528i black on black today and thinking to myself this would be pretty pimp.

    Looks great! Also looks like those wheels turned out perfect(for my taste at least-I wouldn't want them out any more).

    That was the first thing that I wanted to do, but then turns out NH has dumb tint laws. Need to figure out if I can break the tint law and still get it inspected somewhere...

    I would be more worried about the hassle of tickets then getting an inspection.

    Chris is right, B pillar back can be done without issue, but can look kinda weird.

    Like Chris said I can tint the rear windows up to 30% I keep going back and forth whether that would look good or not. I think I'd like it... but Im also afraid of it looking like a stock suv...

    Pete was telling me that he could get me bc racing br series coilovers for a pretty good deal. I got the LED's from khoalty and I love them. Especially because they match the LEDs under the door handles. But yea I'd recommend them to everyone.

    I don't think that car has the M3 V8.

    This is a hot conversion :
