Love the wheels on the 335d.
I know, I'm enjoying dirty driving! Clean the d within an inch of its life so nice to keep this one dirty for now. Not keen on the colour tbh ( Jerez black, I'd say blue). A vinyl wrap will sort this soon and I'll get back to cleaning

Know what you mean. I ponder this as they just dont compare at the moment but its an M3! It's the beginning of a project so going different route but still should stand out!

Thanks Skelts. Do ponder keeping them but the m3 is hoping to be more moody with black wheels.

any difference in performance when changing just the exhaust?

what exhaust is it?
Not noticeable just from changing back box. Think you have to change the cats on these to get any performance increase. Not sure what make. A custom full stainless.

Congrats ..... You're very fortunate, please for you
Thanks NN. Feel the spoiler suits the d, but prob won't re buy for the m.

Lots of . Got quite a few plans

Axle back, although it comes with a full de cat pipe. Paid 320 inc post and the full x pipe. No noticeable performance but sounds good. Bit of drone at 70 but fine at other speeds, and if below 3k you can hear it but not anti social. I'll keep it when I get the eisenmann as sold my oem one but look on eBay, as some go for bargain prices.

It does feel special, but will really enjoy when I've tweaked it.

I just love the power dome bonnets!
Know what you mean, m looks a bit dull! The bonnet is the best bits of the styling IMO.

Im especially a fan of the wheels on the 'D' in terms of style and the way their finished as style wise they are a mirror image of what I was looking at for my 335i. Having previously had a set of genuine set of 19" BBS CH's on my old E46 330d with the genuine red centres I know just how special these wheels are and look. Incidentally they look to me like 20's

But look forward to seeing you on Monday with a nice Sport steering wheel in tow

Oh and the M3's a bit tasty too
They are 20s but reps. Hoping to get the wheel off tomorrow. See you Monday. Cheers Nick
