I’ve been trying to re-work the E90 the last couple of months to get it prepared for 2015 season. I have just begun to add the things that I want, but I was able to grab a cheap set of 19″ iForged wheels to rock. I do like the overall look, but I think some 18’s up front with the current 19’s in the rear with an additional front drop could make for a cool combo. For now this is how it sits.
I am happy to be back to my roots, and have a setup I can truely be happy with. I managed to get stuck with 19’s for a year because of a dirty cheap deal and wanting to carry the new tires over to the 2nd set of 19’s. Finally I decided I couldn’t take it anymore and made the switch to 17’s with a meaty tire. The drop is the same as before, but now with a thicker sidewall the tuck is massive!
I’ve finally taken the time to fine tune and dial in the rest of my camber and fitment. I always hated how E90’s typically run no front camber while the rear tends to dial in quite a bit with a hefty drop. I wanted to even out my front to rear fitment (not just the tire to fender but also the camber of the wheel looking down the side of the car). This is how it is currently sitting.
Was able to dial the car in a little more and change out the rear spacers for just a hair bigger one. I am happy with how everything sits at least for now. I posted some pics up over on FittedMedia.com so check it!
I had to throw a bit of money down to keep the E90 running great for years to come. A common problem on them is for the water pump (which is electric) to begin slowing down over time. BMW upgraded the units after seeing the first few years of E90’s were having issues with there pumps. I figured it was pretty important to do this before it gets real hot again this summer. I plan on making plenty of trips so it’s important for me to have my mind at ease while cruising 300 miles out to Vegas in 105 degree heat.
I try to kick it with my good friend and WFC boss Brian (Lynk) as much as possible despite him living over a hour away. I drove out yesterday to spend some quality time since his Bday was recent. We’ve been buying and working on more and more Euro cars it seems. The different generations of white BMW 3 series cars all parked together was too good not to snap a photo.
