Ditched the 4 rings...

I figure I might as well introduce myself and post some pics of my car (everyone likes pictures).

First off I have to admit I am an Audi guy at heart. I traded in my 2005 A4 2.0t for a 2008 335i 6 spd black on black.

Prior to trading my Audi in I parted it out and put it back to stock. It was stage 2 yada yada yada. It was slow but fun. It was a great car for the three years I had it.

Here are some pics of it while it was in its prime.









Here's what it looked like before I traded it in. Super 4x4 stance.



I left the dealership with this





The car came with Vishnu Procede & intake, Koni yellows & H&R's, and tint. A very nice start. I have been enjoying every minute of it. The difference in power from my Audi is unreal.

I have done a couple small things myself so far. Got some Sport Edition wheels and Blizzaks for our lovely MN winters.



Next I wrapped my nasty wood trim with some matte silver dinoc vinyl.

Before:



After:







I also ordered up some KW V1's from a member on here that will be going on come spring so I can properly stance this thing.

I also snapped up some X5 wheels that I will be mounting up after the coilovers are installed and the wheels are refinished. Here's a teaser





Next on my list is a sport/M steering wheels and hopefully some sport seats or Recaros, some white angel eyes, that tint that goes over the orange reflectors and some different grills.

I've been browsing and this seams like a great forum with many knowledgeable people. I look forward to soaking some of it up! Cheers!

-Chase

You are a man on a mission...Night and day you'll love the 335. Good luck with the Auto. Oh and by the way,I really don't like that easy bake oven Audi Grill though their leds are pretty cool.

Yeah I'm all about odd ball off the wall wheels. But usually they work out pretty well. I cannot wait to see the X5 wheels mounted and the coils installed. It will look like a new car.

Trust me I know. I throw up on it daily. It's on my wishlist. I just wish the damn airbags weren't like $400. It will more than likely be my xmas present to myself.

Yeah that was one thing that I had to look past. I really wanted the sport package but I wanted to find one locally since I was trading my car in. Also it just so happened I know the shop very well that did all of the work on this car. I figure all of the mods that were already on it made it a somewhat of a wash.

I agree it will more than likely be an M wheel.

Should have bought 1 with sport package. Also, ugly wheel choices IMO.

Welcome! I had a few Audi's back in the day as well. I am really curious to see how those X5 wheels work out for you, I think it could look really nice and definitely different!

Almost forgot it also has Dinan sway bars on it! I also need to get the stock roundels back. I'm not really feeling the carbon fiber ones.

Yes it sure is! It was kind of funny, the car was about 2 hrs from where I live and the whole way home I was having a blast with the car. I had put a call in to my buddy Brian to see how I switch between the maps. When I got about 20 miles from home he called back. He told me how to check what map I was on. Sure shit I was on the stock one. So I switched it to map one and I could not believe the power! Let's just say I was smiling ear to ear after that.
