Hello All, my name is Ben and I come from an Audi family. Decided to change it up and join the dark side. lol. I just purchased a black 2009 335i coupe M-package w/ all the option possible. I just love the fact that all the trims are blacked out including the headliner. (Just like my S4 )

I immediately started my modifications. So far it has: JB4, LED halo's, painted reflectors, piano black grilles, and window tint. I am planning on doing the lip, spoiler (maybe CSL trunk), and quad exhaust this summer. Hopefully by end of the year, I will install new rims, suspension, meth kit. I will post my progress as a log, but I don't know which section to post it at since I am new to this forum. Once I figure it out I will post some pictures.

Also, if there is a BMW meet around southeast Michigan, please let me know. I would like to come out and checkout other BMW enthusiast cars.

I am a 2008 335i E90 Black/black with Sport wheels (presently very dirty).

No mods at this time. Eventually yes. I'll tune it up maybe next year. For this year, I'll need to plan for a winter set of shoes. Debating if I could use the stock wheels with skinnier winter rubber, thus allowing for something more interesting as a summer wheel set up. I have my doubts given the wide rear wheels with the sport package.

Maybe I'll whiten up the AE lamps this year for show.

For go, probably a Dinan or Cobb tune and an updated intercooler eventually. Exhaust would be fun, but I choke at the costs of 335 exahusts that are essentially just a pair of mufflers with minimal tubing coming out of them.

I was able to put 225/40R18 on all 4 162 sport wheels for winter (including the wider rear). Although I would not recommend pushing the car too much in dry/wet, the snow traction is nice with the narrower setup. I was also able to rotate, putting the rear wheels up front. The hard cornering predictability did change, but I'll be able to squeeze 1 to 2 years more out of them.

it's not an event for a weak stomach. by the way, it's not at the meijers. the meeting spot is the abandoned parking lot NORTH of meijers. but by now you guys must've figured it out. wish i could've joined in.
