Wrong order of mods.

Suspension first. Then wheels. Then Aero.

Doesn't look too bad though except the front splitter thing

Well i personally like the BMW sport suspension, and have been considering eventually a wide body, so wheels would be a waste, and just thought id try something new with the lip.

But i appreciate the feedback

Update:

Have a rather large update here, been a real busy week.
Summer has now kind of arrived so the summer tires went back on. This time around though I put on my BMS Spacers with a 12mm in the front and a 15mm in the rear

Before


After


That's just the front but rear had similar results. I have all of the DIY Install steps aswell if anyone wants to see those.

Next up was a rather large DIY in comparison. I bought a 3 Stage IM from another forum member mad1stgen , got some new seals, and set up a new hard drive to run INPA and all accompanying software to be able to tune it.

The install went rather smoothly took a little bit as some connectors were a pain in the ass, but overall on first start up went flawlessly. I think i made 1 or 2 mistakes though while re-routing the power steering reservoir I think the lines are just slightly in the wrong spot so no biggy. The second issue I made was I think i put a cable in a holder a little to early as now the box that attaches to the cowl has to much tension and is about 1 mm to short from connecting back in its holder.

Mid Install


Lastly,
It was tuning time. This was a major deciding factor in doing the 3-Stage IM, was that the tune for it was free (besides a $30 cable). I went with the Bimmerlabs tune/flash that converts you over to a base 130i tune, which does incorporate the DISA valves. I highly recommend Bimmerlabs as its free, they had great support to answer my few questions, and it went over flawlessly.

Also shout out to desertman123 , for his build thread informing me of bimmerlabs and helping me reset the adaptations. I originally forgot to do this but did the next day and definitely felt the change in the top end after doing this (previous to resetting the adaptations I only noticed a low end change).

Not 100% on what will be next, I saw some ghost codes for the VANOS solenoids im going to look into, but until then here is my current update pic

Update

This is like ideal 1 series spec that isn't the 1M look

I also saw a few VANOS codes a little after tuning. Not sure if that's 100% coincidental for both of us but it's an observation. I cleared the code and it came back like a week later so I just replaced both solenoids (I've already cleaned them multiple times). Figured at 115k they were due.

Thanks! now its tough deciding on if i want to work on the ideal suspension, or engine. Having done the 3-Stage IM, i'm now considering doing MILVs and Headers at some point.

But also need to finish the exterior with a new rear bumper to get a diffuser.

Update:

Decided I wanted to try a bit of change. I decided after much debate to paint my calipers red, and soon will be doing my intake scoops as well. For using a rattle can vs powder coating i'm pretty happy with the results, turned out pretty good.

I also installed a hidden plate that you can see (slightly) folded down underneath my lip.

Did you notice any difference in how the vehicle performed upon changing the solenoids?

Barely, it was a hair smoother but not a massive difference. Putting 6 new coil packs made a way bigger difference.

Was the install plug and play?
Are they heated?

Yes install was plug and play, very easy. They are heated, and i recommend buying them from schmiedmann, seemed to be the cheapest and easiest
