Got my 2007 328xi E92 In august 2007..



Wasnt planning to build this car at all, but gotta get wheels for winter...


Didn't Like the silver on white look so I painted the wheels matte black and purchased a CF AC Schnitzer Roof Spoiler and OEM Trunk Spoiler



Got tint done to the windows (40%F and 30%R)


Needed a Drop so lowering springs for now...

H&R Sport Springs and Smoked Bumper Reflectors.



Got GP Thunder 8500K Angel Eye Bulbs to replace the OEM yellow Angel Eyes
Matte Black Kidney Grills



The mod bug hit me and I order OZ Ultraleggeras in Matte Black and did the White TA ring myself!

17X8.5 All-Round


Reggie@MWDesign
I got some OEM mudflaps, Eisenmann Race Exhaust and Taillight tint!



Got bored so I painted my "328" Gloss Black and got B&W BMW Emblems

pg[/IMG]

The front bumper of the E92 need so more aggressive appear so I got the OEM M-Tech Aero Front Lip and Europlate



Some Vinyl Work on the mirrors and Headlights tinted


Was gonna do OEM M-Tech Sides but then...



Decided to sell both the skirts and the front lip and do a Authentic AC Schnitzer Front end!

It requires me to cut into the stock bumper to fit the new lip!



Reggie@MWDesign
Snow plow season!


So to make it more efficient...



Got H&R Coilovers for more low.


Got new LED 7300K LED Angel Eyes!


Enabled my OEM Rear Fogs and Got LED license plate bulbs.


I hate the OEM Amber running light so I did a mod...


TO delete the amber so that it ONLY turns on when I signal and have the hazards on... took quite a bit of re-wiring but so worth it!



Got my interior trim pieces paint to match my exterior paint (alpine white)
Reggie@MWDesign
Ordered new rims! VMR V710 19x8.5 & 19X9.5 in matte black wrapped in Toyo T1R Tires 235/35F and 265/30R

and also installed my H&R Coilovers!






Ordered a Injen CAI


STRD Track Day Fly By with Eisenmann Race Custom header back exhaust and Injen Intake

http://www.flickr.com/photos/29119795@N02/4031746910/

Since I had a white roof the CF roof spoiler seemed out of place so got it partially painted alpine white



Got M5/M6 DCT knob successfully Retro-Fitted so the lights light up to match the indicator!



Black Roof Done with Gloss Black Vinyl
hopefully pay for paint soon!



Lowered stance with smoked side blinker with clear coat tint


Photos with Mike Boldt and got new GP thunder 8500 Foglights to change it up for a bit.



Reggie@MWDesign
Need to complete the AC Schnitzer Kit!




MTEC D1S 9000K Bulbs!



Decided to paint my engine cover like a Type R heheh (Honda Fanboy :))
and Time Attack my wheels with red!




Became part of Europrojektz! and Sponsored by MWDesign Technik


Taillight the entire taillight dark!



Photoshoot with Terence (Infected) fellow EP member with his C Coupe



Me, Brad (EM1FTW) and Terence (Infected) did a road trip to Vancouver!






Reggie@MWDesign
Got RPI Scoops for Ram Air Induction


STRD Track Day!

- T1R Socks and Yellow TA's!


Got RD LED 18-LED X2 License Plate Housings


I HATE WINTER!


Rhys (~Porsche~) and I turned my car into a canvas!




Wrapped my trim in Black CF Fabric and Got a OEM Suede Shift boot

Reggie@MWDesign
Stud Conversion was then done and got Project Kics Neo Chrome Extended Lugs! and Fatlace stuff..




Shortly after I wanted a more aggressive roof spoiler, Hamann it is!


Stickers and new spoiler



Wanted something different so i ordered Titanium Tips to do a custom Header Back Exhaust!



New Hood

Matte Black Vinyl with Gold and Silver Paint Pens.

20 hours with Rhys and this is what we got!



Order KW V1 Coilovers to replace the H&R coilovers but decided to sell them and buy more parts for the 98 Integra Project I have going for 2010 :)



Installed my MTEC 3000K HID Fogs




I havent documented everything since I gotten it so this is just the most important parts of the build!

I missed a few small things but oh well!

More to come for 2010! New look for E92 and DC2 will hopefully be on the roads in June!

WOW! what an amazin lookin car! Panda FTW
I always thought it wasn't a good idea to put a staggered setup on an AWD because it would cause premature wear on drivetrain parts.:dunno: Might want to look into that..

Car looks great Reggie... now get that teg done :P
ninefourfour
Well done!!! I've seen your car a few times and love what you have done. One question though. For a mod nut like you, why no 335i??? I'm sure you would have had more fun with that engine than anything?

Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing your build.

I was thinking about painting most of it, and leaving the strip exposed on the lip of the spoiler and leaving the license plate area exposed like this:

But not sure where to go.

Not anymore, I changed my mind, scraped the idea of track wheels since the track is closing and when for some BBS steplip:D

what about pick up the Volk TE37 G2's from Tunerworks off Rob's E90 M3?

he is asking like $2800 without tires on M3post.com

TE37 G2 from Rob's E90 M3

Reggie@MWDesign
I am not a fan of the fad personally. it only suites some cars, depending how much contrast the car has, the fade is for the cleaner looked cars i think. its more of a classy style if its faded.
CSMRX7
Not sure I like the exposed carbon around the plate, but its easier to not paint it and try it out than to paint it and go back!
Jsen-DC2
car is sick, i see you around my work every now and then, props on such a sick car! :thumbsup:

Herroooo Recaroooo

Got my new seats in today! Recaro Profi SPG's FIA approved.





Also, My OEM ZSP Wheel with OEM Steptronic Paddleshifters with custom wiring harness made so that my left pull/push is downshift and right pull/push is for upshift...
Usually with this wheel from the dealership the pull for both paddles is upshift and push on either paddle for downnn... which i dont really like...




Now I gotta get the Macht E92 Floormounts, OCC SRS Module so my car wont have a Airbag error cause the OEM seats have airbags in them... and if they are removed without a bypass... I have some problems...

Wheels are still on the way..
R-Audi
Should just be able to put a resistor in your airbag seat harness.... I believe thats what Tunerworks did for mine.
CSMRX7
Nice seats :thumbsup:

Any idea if the issues in Japan are gonna affect the ETA on your wheels?

Yup, your car looks great. I remember checking it out and the decals stood out, which is how I remember it. I had a few decals on the front as well at the time, which I removed a week or so ago.

I'll probably bump into you again, although my car will look a bit different, but I am sure you should be able to recognize me. If you are around at some point & we happen to bump into each other, give me a shout, considering we both live in the area.
