Bumper repair.

Could I have left this alone? Yes. Does it look better than before? Yes. Does it still bother me? Yes.

Just a temporary fix until I get an M Tech bumper next year and don't have a roached out bumper.

What it started as:




As this being a temporary fix, I did what I could to make it look presentable, but not have this take multiple days. Used 220, 400, and 600 grit sand paper.







I chose not to use body filler with how flimsy these bumpers are and didn't want it to crack. And once again, temporary fix.


Needs wet sand and polish, but looks decent.



Polished up the side markers using the headlight restore kit.


M3 style trunk lip added.



Replaced the angel eye bulbs with LUX V4 ones. Tried my best to polish up the headlights, but they are still kind of pitted. Passenger side is cracked in the top, top corner. So it needs to be replaced anyway. Lenses look much worse in this picture than in person.

Got some new wheels. Style 193's from a coworker who was moving and no longer needed them, got them for a good price. They came on Michelin Pilot Aplin winter tires. I am planning on keeping these off until winter, running them with the winter tires, and then next spring, swap the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S's I just got onto them to be my spring summer tires.

Hadn’t seen the wheels on the car yet, didn’t have much to do today, so I did a test fit on one side. 



Between these and the style 225’s, I think the E9X had some of the best M sport wheels. Looking forward to these being on the car full time. Just waiting till winter(currently on snows as stated in previous post).

Think I am going to do some ST coil overs next year to get rid of just a little bit of the wheel gap.

Our company made a deal to employees on house brand wheels too good to pass up on so, so I bought a set for winter. But after seeing how it looks, maybe I should have done them for summer.


I really like the black on silver more than I thought. Anovia Titans, 18x8.5 x 18x9.5 +35mm. Michelin Pilot Sport Aplin’s, 225/40 and 255/35.


How the currently sits. Style 193’s on Michelin PS4S’s, 225/40R18 and 255/35R18.

ST coil overs this coming spring more than likely, factory suspension is starting to feel a little loose.
