I think my love for BMWs and racing may have started with Tony Viana racing E23 7series in the modified saloons class back in the 80s! (cigarette sponsorship of course)
I remember watching Tony Viana race in the 80's. He started with a 7 series and then moved everything into a 5 series for the later years.

Here's a picture of the e90, so don't worry, It will be getting BMW Performance Bodykit once released. The partnership isn't with BMW South Africa as such but BMW performance parts



The e90 was running the n55, so im sure this will be to, with all they've learnt on the e90 n55

very nice set up. The bbs gt4 wheels looks great on the car. No one is driving the car.

are you saying our bumper is not functional? In fact, the air duct goes where they should, the FMIC is right there, and the oil cooler is getting air like it is suppose to.

No, I'm simply saying they had better things to worry about than how the bumpers look. Your ride looks amazing.
