Some lads on another forum had asked if I'd do some photoshops of different wheel finishes, thought I'd throw them up here as well - just in case anyone is thinking if changing. I think I'm happy enough standard however!

Stock


Shadow-chrome


Anthracite


Black (satin)


Black (gloss)


Hope that gives some folks a few ideas!

Very good additions to the car, nothing OTT. Really nice modifications.

What offset are the wheels Nigelo and how do you go about fitting the M3 skirts?

The skirts are replicas specially for non-M3 e92s from ppcgb.com, and just mount in the stock holes etc. Oem m3 skirts don't fit at all.

For the offsets, hmmm, not entirely sure, think they're 27et rear, and 37et front - they're stamped on the front, need to get out and have a good look!

Personally, the original gear selector better suited the interior, especially with the glossy trim and the other chrome touches (such as the steering wheel trim). Steering wheels looks fantastic though!

Great car!

Getting my downpipes fitted on tuesday so I can fire my stage 2+fmic map on, but have a few other updates I've been at!

Had a local garage fit me a nice set of exhaust tips to the car a while ago. *The tips are 3.8" cyba tips in chrome!









And next up was my intercooler...

Bought a Wagner intercooler 2nd hand for a bargainous price that really couldn't be ignored - even though I wanted an ETS 5".

It's allowed me to flash the Cobb v4 stage 1+fmic map, and it's a whopper. Must be pushing near 400bhp, and it feels it.

Still looking forward to tuesday though to get my CPe downpipes fitted and go to stage 2+fmic.

Have a few guys who want a wee blast as they're interested in buying a 335i for the tuning potential. I'm sure it'll not disappoint!

Oops, let me finish that...

If you list those posts in order of replies the highest one should be a thread from the seller (Cyba) detailing cost and styles etc.

Think mine were £80 all in.

Im going mad this evening - pick the car up tomorrow from the mechanics and then flash on cobb st2+fmic. It feels a bit like Christmas!

The beta v4 st1+fmic maps were great, supposedly st2+fmic aren't a massive leap, but the extra sound and punchiness excite me! Review to come!

I think it looks the part mate!

similar to the piano black but custom at the same time.

Good job - well done for the effort Nigelo!

After giving my car a good clean I wanted to give it a clay, buff and use some new sealant (wolfs body wrap) that I'd ordered for a try out.

The car's paint had plenty of contamination and stone chips but apart from bmws usual orange peel there wasn't much swirlyness, so only gave it a buff with finishing compound.

Only managed to get one coat of sealant on today, second coat on tomorrow. It's left the car with a nice wet glassy finish already so just filling in any gaps. Here's a quick iPhone snap....



I'd looked at some pedals too, in the end I went with a set with no footrest plate, but with rubber pads which were similar pattern to the footrest.

Happy with the fitment, used self-tappers to mount the accelerator plate rather than the bolts which would've fouled the pedal's movement. I've decided to go back to the aluminium interior trim to match in with the pedals and because the gloss black wrap looks classy but a bit 'plain' and the e92 interior doesn't need any more plain-ness.



Still a few more things that I have in mind to try to spruce up the interior a little without it getting to messy or jumbled - mainly getting a few bits of interior trimmed in leather with some nice stitching.

Very tastefully done.

The more i think about the OEM look suits these cars much better than going all out. They also remain a lot more stealth when out on the road!

Look forward to seeing more on your car...

Bro, your car is looking awesome! Loving what you've done so far! Did you change the colour of your alloys?

I just went gloss black powder coating and they look mean! I think you've inspired me to paint my rear diffuser gloss black too!

Love it!
