BlaxiCANNNs Picture/Build Journal

Hello, My name is Sergio

This is my first thread on the F30 side of bimmerpost and this is where I will upload random pics of my "build". I probably should have done this earlier to have a better organized timeline of my progress butttt better late then never.

Ive been a Honda guy for most of my life... a few Integras couple civics and a TSX before I jumped into BMW's.

This was my previous car 2011 Space Grey E90





I liked it a lot but I get bored and the newer body style was calling my name so I picked up a very clean 2013 Alpine White F30 at the end of October. I typically like to buy cars bone stock but this one was very clean and included a set of H&R Coilovers Performance exhaust and a (broken) M performance Front lip. White on black is a color combo Ive always wanted but never had so I figured why not.

This was it. (shitty cellphone pic sorry)



The wheels were the first thing that I wanted to switch out. The style 67s were aggressive in the rear but so sunken in the front, it bothered me every day

I ended up buying a set of HRE FF01s and had them powder coated. The color isn't what I was expecting but I like them and i think they work well on the car. I have had a few sets done at a local company CT Specialties and I would recommend them if you're in western Washington



Next up was deciding on what I wanted to do exterior wise with the car and whether or not I wanted to replace the broken performance lip with another or something else... I decided to change it up and began ordering parts.

First in was the M performance Side Blades.



At the same time I also ordered the M performance Floor Mats and M performance pedals, the 6spd was another reason I chose this car the e90 was my only ever auto. I was having withdrawls (another shitty cellphone pic)



And this was the finished look for that "transition" phase.



Next I made the decision to add some Carbon pieces and after doing some research for quality and fitment RW Carbon was the place to get it from. I reached out to Eric and pulled the trigger on the front lip, diffuser, and mirror caps. I would recommend them to anyone I was not disappointed



I painted the diffuser so that just the center portion would be cf I really liked that look on the E90 performance diffusers so figured i would try it out here.. and to tie it in to the matte black performance side blades.



I had the roof on my E90 wrapped gloss black which was pretty subtle on the space gray but i liked the subtle look so i was unsure if i wanted to do it on the white as it would be a pretty obvious contrast but i figured with the rest of the black and carbon accents it should look good so I went for it and I'm happy with the result.



Then I hit up Rob at ECS Tuning after a lot of debating on whether to get them or not....
at least they came in a big box lol.



Then I opened em up and was happy I chose to get the M performance big brake kit.



I hit up Daniel (danielfastv6) for the install as I've never done brakes and don't really want to learn on my own car. He does work for a lot of local members on here and did brakes on my wife car before. Also put me in contact with Kao from BIM coding to get the brakes and a few other things coded in for me. Cool dude hit him up if you need any work done locally!



and that brings us to now... I finally took a few quick pics with a real camera of where I'm at













and a garage pic


Still have a few things in mind to do... This is my daily driver and I love it so far. I may lower the front back down since there is no more threat of snow lol... let me know what you think

19x8.5 and 19x10... Thanks for the kind words! The torque on my old 335 was nice but that said im not racing anywhere and dont plan to do any crazy power mods or getting a 335 would have been a higher priority.

Welcome to the topic creators' side

Wery tasty, I really liked it, especially the rear stance is optimum it seems

I personally do not like the carbon staff but it seems everyone loves them!
And love the biiiiiiiig rotors, I just bought Msport brakes, but it seems I'll be changing the rotors in soon to 375mm

Keep posting..

Looks great! Did you consider changing the tail-lights to the LCI ones? That would complete the look IMO

Beautiful sir! Car goals for sure. The rw lip is what I've been wanting and I was thinking about just getting a cheaper eBay M perfomance lip to hold me over but now I think I need to just go all in on the rw lip. How was the fitment? Did any adjustments have to be made?

bRYANT619 I liked your TSX a lot!
As for lci tails I thought about em but i actually prefer just the straight lines on the originals

I actually was looking into moving from my 335i E90 to M3 of that generation but again I really like the newer body style and going fast isn't a priority. But who knows when that will change lol.

I would definately recommend jumping on the rw lip... then you get what you really want the first time and didnt waste money on something you already plan on changing... haha at least thats how I usually convince myself on buying certain parts. Fitment was great and I didn't do any modifications to get it on. comes pre drilled as well which is nice.


Thanks for the love!

I was debating on picking up the performance trim stuff but i don't know. I think next up is the performance shift knob and armrest. The white/silver stitching on both of those pieces should look cool in a white car.
