I actually like them to be honest. On M3post someone said they need to go but in person I think they look good enough for right now. I'm sure they're easily changeable so I can change them if needed

I found the previous owner in Germany and found out some info on the car itself
The holes in the bottom of bumper are custom cooling ducts for the rotors. They are now covered by splitters as I don't plan on doing any tracking. It's been on the ring a few times and was maintained thoroughly.



I also cleaned the calipers, wheel wells and inner barrel of the wheels. I can't find the wheel lock so I did the best I could without removing the wheels. I had to order a key from Germany as these wheel locks aren't available state side unfortunately. Shit cost me $60
















I've got an MS stage 2 intake waiting to go on, then will be doing gts dct tune, stage 2 tune and AA test pipes to delete primary cats. This is a pretty common nod list to gain 20-30hp over stock. Goes in for paint correction on the 25th then will get spark plugs, coolant flush and dct pan seeping fixed.

Beautiful car! I love that color. That's really cool you were able to track down the previous owner, I would love to have a convo with whoever owned my ride before me.

Thanks guys! Yea I found him because the drivers floor mat and pedals are pedal haus and they are a sponsor to Mflight which is a rather large worldwide M group, that made engraved pedals for this group so I joined. I went to their Facebook page and posted some pictures in wth an hour found the original owner in Germany. It's pretty cool to know this car was used for its purpose and raced on the Nurburgring. The rear wing was custom made for this car by RC Racing in Germany and according to the previous owner was the only E90 with this wing and registration tags. I'm finding out more and more about the car and it's nice knowing the previous owner is an enthusiast that cared for and raced the car.

I've set up an appointment with Alex from Alpine to do some coding and GTS tune. Will post updates for those who are interested!
