Nice job getting rid of the wood trim, I did the exact same when I got my 335i.

I liked the wood trim in my e46, in fact that's how I ordered it. For some reason though in the e92 I thought the wood looked bad and also very cheap/poor looking. The silver looks amazing though.

Car looks great, that steering wheel looks like the wheel I see on all the loaner sedan 328s I get. I wonder if that's stock on all 335i sedan pre lci?

Both cars look nice. The DTM front really made the Audi stand out.

I got rid of Audi also, BMW cockpit is much more comfortable and made for a man. Audi is a womens car.

I agree. I put about 15 hours into retro fitting the RS4 grill and RS4 fog grills into it. It was worth every second of it.

Congrats on the upgrade, though I must say your Audi looked pretty damn aggressive when modded! Stock it really is an SUV ... just like the xDrive BMWs.

Def. change out that steering wheel. Unfortunately it's going to be really expensive as you not only need the wheel but also the sport airbag ... which is more than the wheel. M-tech or tri-stitched M3 wheel is your best bet.

Also some blackline tails and an M3 lip spoiler would make your car look even nicer.

Best of luck with it

Thanks for the recommendations! Yeah I know I've been looking at airbags and was not surprised that they were more than the actual steering wheel. One of those 2 will more than likely be the one I will get.

I'm also going to do a M3 front. The stock bump doesn't do much for me. Plus it's drilled for a license plate. I got some black plastic plugs for the 2 holes and got a tow hook plate holder for now but I really dig the M3 bumper. I love the wide mouth it has. To me having the plate in the middle of the bumper takes away from the looks of the front end so much. I would love to run no plate but it's not worth the hassle with the law.

To be honest man I am not sure. It was already on it when I bought it. If I had to guess I would say either 25% or 30%.

Yea the M3 front really transforms the car!

Definitely get the blacklines, its by far one of the best external upgrades for the pre LCI e90s

Welcome to the light! I can't stand Audis due to their lack of intelligence when designing/assembling the cars. I'm a gear head and a mechanic, and even though I love wrenching, I hate Audis. Audi engineers seem to hate mechanics.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!
