New E90 IB Comp Owner
 
As the title states, I purchased a 2011 E90 Competition Package in Interlagos Blue DCT loaded with pretty much every option, Nav, Tech, Cold Weather, Premium, Smokers etc. What makes this one even more unique in my eyes at least, the original one owner bought while stationed overseas in Europe. So it has Euro front bumper, first aid kit and emergency triangle. It spent 4 yrs over there and made it way back to the states in 2015. It's only got 60k miles on it in really clean looking condition. I bought it from a dealer in Texas pretty much sight unseen minus a FaceTime and a family friend mechanic giving it a once over. I got a screaming deal on it so if it needs a few things I'm prepared. Appears to have aftermarket diffuser and AC Schnitzer exhaust based on the tips. Unfortunately, the guy also mounted the ugliest wing on the trunk so any insight removal would be appreciated. Here are some cell phone pics from the salesman.

I ran it thru vin decoder and found everything it has. Pretty unique car and I couldn't be any happier I found it as it was posted Monday and I got first dips after 20 other people called on it. I'll get some better pics once it arrives but currently seeking advice on removal of the wing/spoiler!!! Salesman said it appears to be bolted and done cleanly so hopefully holes aren't too big.

Nice car. If the spoiler is bolted you likely need some patchin work. Good luck! Enjoy the e90

Thanks guys! I believe the spoiler is bolted so patch is most likely inevitable. Do they use any sealer or anything around the mount I need to be aware of? I have no experience with them

why are there holes drilled into the lower part of the front bumper?

I'm not sure, I'm wondering if maybe he had some type of lip or diffuser on there? I like the vorsteiner lip anyway which covers that. I'll eventually get the bumper redone to get license plate holes filled

She arrived today, gave her a quick bath. I'm loving this thing and really enjoy the quickness of the dct. I drove one before I bought it but I wasn't sure I'd be happy without a clutch. Really liking it so far. Removed the wing and there are holes in the lid so I'm going to plug them for right now until I move and figure out what I want to do.

This was just a quick wash with Optimum no Rinse. I'll do a more thorough one Sunday and it goes in for correction and CQuartz July 25. This sound of the S65 with the exhaust is addicting. Still really engaging but the E46 still feels more rewarding. Was expecting that aspect and I'm perfectly happy with the E90, but now I can really see the differences in the short time I've drove it.

Car looks great. Maybe pick up a used IB trunk?

If I can find a used IB LCI trunk I'll certainly grab it but they are hard to come by since most pre lci guys buy them to upgrade. I've got them plugged off at the moment still need to remove the glue from the mounts. I think I'll leave it as is for awhile and get maintenance up to par. Oil change, brake fluid, power steering, coolant flush as well as fix dct pan seepage and do dct service. Once that's done I'll address the trunk. Not a huge priority at the moment

Love IB! How do you feel about the exhaust tips?
