MPG mostly. I know I could of gotten a 328i and done all sort of performance mods, but the 40mpg is just hard to resist at this point of my life.

From V8 M3 to diesel must be tough. Went V8 S4 to the 335i and it's not bad. But compared to my fiancÚ's 328i was a pretty staggering difference. But yea, I bought the 3 series for the better MPG but also fun drive.

To be honest, this wagon is super torquey. It can go just fine, I just miss my 6mt a little. I'm sure when warranty is up I'll do some performance mods since I also have a daily (lol). People are always surprised when I tell them it comes with 280 torque from the factory.

Car is looking great

LED fog lights, and M-Sport Side Skirts with the Extension are on my to-do list. You didn't have to code anything for the LED fog swap did you? I have cornering lamps, with my active headlights just wondering.

Also, you only did the 12mm spacers up front right? I have been thinking about doing this. My fronts are 19x9 ET 36 235/35R19, and don't quite match the aggressive fitment of the rear wheels and tires. Do you notice any handling changes from the slightly wider track, or the same?

Thanks! JDM Wheels are the way to go, my only other option would be BBS (some of which are also made in Japan).

You have to code voltage check for the LED swap.

I haven't drove wild enough to see any handling changes yet, but my offset currently does fill up the fenders quite well with the spacer.

You wagon is looking great. That Lambo shouldn't look that good in grey... seen a couple M3 done in it... has so much depth. Looks like a Supra in the background too?

That color was an original color on the LP670 I believe, looks great in person.

Yup, I believe that was a Supra.

A great pic of my car from speedhunters

The lighting is awesome - makes the car a little lighter? Seems close to EB I colour? Great shot to have.

Running out of things to do, but probably some OEM stuff here and there.

-OEM Euro LCI Tails

Really like the amber turn signal from the Euro LCI tails, so I got a set from Schmiedmann (Link). If you have a touring, and want euro LCI tails, the part numbers and prices are below:



Got Alex from Alpine to help me out with the install.. some pics below:

Last pic of my car with Pre-LCI tails, at AAA finally getting my old vanity plate on.



Beautiful!




Some behind the scenes work, Alex is a wiz with this stuff man, he had to extend the harness due to the hatch of the touring.






Done!

LCI taillights make such a big difference, love the look. You are doing every mod on my long wish list, haha so thanks for the updates.

What % and type of tint do you have on your car? I need to get mine done soon, and just curious. We can only do 35% here in MA legally.

No problem! Tint came with the car, so I'm not too sure. Looks like a 20% all around to me though.. looks like limo cause my interior is black.

Ahh I see, I had a feeling it was probably closer to 20% from the looks of it. 35% definitely won't look as good, but I also have black interior so that will help darken things a little.

Also, when I was looking at part numbers for the LCI tail lights I came across some "M-Performance LCI Tail Lights." Not sure how I feel about them, almost look like aftermarket but I was intrigued nonetheless.

For anyone interested, looks like they will NOT be available in the US though. There is a thread ongoing here, but seems like they aren't available yet.
