BurrNinja F10 Build

Figured I will make one of these from start to finish.
Ideas will go here so I do not make multiple threads.



To start off. When I first got my car. Very few mods plasti dipped door trim, front grill.
At least till I purchase gloss black grill insert and wrap trim.



Plan to purchase new wheels. Photo is a rough idea of how my car will look with the wheels.




Also added cold air intake for nice sound.


Removed badges



Plan to get my valve cover replaced, ofhg, breather hose, ocg. Eventually rms. All Diy best way to save money plus I learn about my car as I go. As I plan to be a technician one day in the process of that. Other then that I usually have to save up for mods currently. Once I get her paid off and things in life straightened out more I will be able to afford to not have to save so little. Any comments and questions I will answer too as soon as I can. Thanks for viewing! This will be a long journey for me in the beginning stages of mods.

Awesome bro! we need a photo shoot. were like minutes away! your car looks like my twin when I first bought mine. I took my sweet ole time. almost 3 years in the making. take your time and do it right. look for deals in the Marketplace and yes, do a lot of it DIY! BTW, that looks like the Walmart Parking lot on Airport. I've seen your car there a couple of times and didn't know it was yours because those are the wheels I was going to get.

Cool! Let us know how you like it. I bought HF DA Polisher and have been using it for 3 years but I'm ready to toss it since it burns up all the hex logic pads too quickly. Even with upgrading the backing plate to Lake Country

Thank you, going to be ordering parts to replace the slow leaking gaskets. Then once thats all good I will start saving for cosmetic mods.

BMW Engine Oil Filter Housing Gasket - Genuine BMW 11428637821
BMW Oil Cooler Seal - Genuine BMW 11428637820
BMW Vent Hose - Genuine BMW 11127584128
BMW Valve Cover - Genuine BMW 11127570292
BMW Drive Belt Tensioner - INA 11288604266
BMW Accessory Drive Belt - Contitech 8K1390

Once all this is done my car will be running solid with no leaks or tensioner noises!! So hyped to replace this.

I did the valve cover myself with help of my dad we both learned things, its not bad at all, just need good memory on where things go back into place. Next I will be doing ofhg and oil cooler gasket but with an oil change. Found out what ever shop previously did the valve cover did not tighten all the bolts SMH! Id rather save the money and know the job was done right tbh with a little bit of knowledge on the way.
