UPDATE: June 2013- Found out that I was nominated COTM on bimmerpost for June 2013, don't really know how that happened and always thought my car wasn't anything too special lol but thank you everyone!!!!:thump:

UPDATE: May 2014- Lowered my car on KW V2 coilovers

***First Mod I did was blacking out the BMW roundels and got 15% tints ony my windows all around minus the front windshield***

Also did the golf tee mod hehehe
I just purchased and used black vinyl overlays on the roundels.







***ADDED A CARBON FIBER FRONT LIP AND TRUNK SPOILER***
And installed the painted side reflectors
BMW performance spoiler and i believe the front lip is a Kerscher style lip. Just used 3M double sided tape to attach them and also used some bolts on the front lip for a more secure installation.

Install was straight forward using a DIY i found on the forums



**** WRAPPED MY CAR IN MATTE BLACK VINYL *****

Took me a few days, was my first time ever working with vinyl and completed the job in my garage. You can check out my whole write-up on that experience if you look at my past threads!

****A FEW PERFORMANCE MODS****
***BMS DCI***
DCI was simple, just removed the old airbox and installed the cones.



***RED RPI SCOOPS***
Simple install, had to remove kidneys and the upper directional scoop, but also had to trim some edges of the scoops since they were not 100% correct fitment







****BMS JB4****
installed was straightforward using my ipad to look at the instructions provided by BMS- took about an hour and 15 minutes for the job



***BMS wheel spacers***
Install speaks for itself, 15mm in the rear and 12mm in the front

JUNE UPDATE **CAR OF THE MONTH**
Muffler delete With CYBA 4.0 'Dry Carbon' tips

CHOP CHOP

MAY 2014 UPDATE

Finally did it and lowered my car on KW V2 coilovers. Install and fender rolling was done by Keith Landucci, great guy and quality service! The rear is maxed out, and the fronts could have gone lower with about 3 threads left. I love how the 313's look on my car, Overall I'm super satisfied with the outcome!

UPDATE JANUARY 2015; 3 parts
Haven't been too active on the forums anymore but thought I would do a quick update for everyone on my 335is.

PART ONE, I ordered a simple & clean diffuser attachment from Josh Avery. Highly Recommend his products and a genuine seller.





PART TWO: Arkym front bumper
This bumper came directly from PJ and LTMW and couldn't be happier because the Arkym has hands-down always been my favorite.







PART THREE: VRSF FMIC

Thanks to my girlfriend for the awesome gift and AUTOCOUTURE MOTORING for the installation. Love how aggressive the front looks now with both the Arkym bumper and intercooler!!
