Updates on my E92 335i
I installed my CF skirts extensions and rear cannard like things on Saturday. This pic is before I washed it, it's covered in pollen even though I garage it and only drive on decent days.
Pics after a quick wash and wax. Joining the Shiny AF club was never so easy.
I have some more goodies on the way as well...I will update this post once they are installed. I need to finish the meth kit install and retune asap.

Got my custom headlights installed. If you want a set, pricing, quote, option sheets etc. please contact: email@example.com. Mention my name and Vin will hook you up.
Installed these lights on my e92 and KW coilovers on my buddies XI all in the same day. not bad for a days worth of work. It was a rainy Saturday so not much else to do but wrench.
Onto the pictures. It does a ton more colors, the green and aqua look neat but no pics of those:
I'll get some more pics shortly.

Vin is located in NY.
I've modded headlights on other platforms. You can buy all the parts online and DIY. There are DIYs etc. online and youtube. But the risk of destroying headlights can be a deterrent. You are a big DIY like me for the most part so looking back I think I would have done it myself and saved a bit of cash.
I do have a spare set of E92 headlights for sale. I bought a set to have modded and then now have mine for sale. So you could do what i did and have no downtime.

The headlights are just awesome.
The carbon sideskirts look good too.

Thanks for all the kind words guys.
I should have my inlets and outlets installed in a couple weeks. Meth is flowing fine, logs look good. Just started my custom tune with Motiv. After that some other cosmetic mods and that should be it for the year. Other than a few smaller mods I have sitting around uninstalled(diff lockdown, tranny mounts, UUC STS and DSSk, etc.)
Just a run down of the different colors the demon eyes can do. Absolutely no use for this modification but it was inexpensive so yeah. Also it's hard to see from the picture but the cut off is MUCH sharper and MUCH more colorful(fancy new lenses). The camera does not pick up on the color at all but does show the sharp cut off. I can see significantly better at night. Part of that is also probably do to the new HID CBI bulbs.
This is not all of the colors but most of them. There are some in betweens etc and some just did not come out good with my cell phone camera. The camera also washes out the color a bit they are more vibrant in person and it does not have to be at night to see them very clearly:
Like this one is a better example of how they look. The angel eye did not wash the color out as much with my oh so amazing cell phone camera:
There is a Yellow and then a 'Gold' yellow color if that makes any sense:
You can see a sliver of light on the top left of the headlight by the eye brow. The inside is so bright with the angel eyes any opening shows a lot of light escaping. I am going to play around and see what I can do to stop it. Might just be as simple as a clean surface and some electrical tape.
Meth is installed and flowing. Here is a picture of the gauge. Both the boost and meth gauge are angled to the driver hard to see in the picture but in person it is noticeable. I like them in the vents vs. PODs on the steering wheel on dash which I hate the look of personally. I also can't stand my instrument cluster being blocked.

Got my PE exhaust installed. Only drove it down the street to work but it sounds great. Significantly louder and I have the exhaust burble on duration .5s & max aggressiveness and it sounds ridiculously loud. People were turning their heads. I think I am going to have to tone it down. I didn't get a chance to get it above 4.5k but it sounded much better than the stock exhaust.
Again there are a ton of colors and inbetweens so I just took a bunch of photos. For example see the greens(light, medium, dark):
I really like the LCI style turn signals that are blacked out:
The camera on my phone messes up heads on photos of these I think because of how bright the angel eyes are:
Again they look better in person. My cell phone might as well be a potato. I could probably mess with the settings as it is a Note 5 but nobody aint got no time fo that.
Good by E91 with a slow ass N52 Hello E70 Diesel X5:
Installed the JBD tune on it which made it a bit more fun to drive. I love the low end TQ.
No pictures of this but installed the MMP inlets and Outlets as well. Just gotta finish up my tune with Motiv now.

How do you feel about that black trim? I have the silver interior trim. I'm looking for someone to swap. Let me know if you're interested or know anyone who is. Appreciate it!
