Best mods for your e92 335i?

Hi. I would be interested to hear what is the best mod you've added to your 335i. I have added a set of linea corse 818's that have transformed the looks of my car.
I will post a photo later

Quaife, then remap. Oh, and also CIC - coming from CCC, it's incredible

Is the car an SE or M Sport. If its SE then add the BMW aero front and the M Sport steering wheel. Also M Sport side skirts look that little bit more aggressive.

Whichever model it is an M3 lip spoiler is a cheap and easy mod that looks great.

What year is the car?

If you have halogen halos it may be worth upgrading the bulbs to LED.

diverter valves
cai
exhaust
quaife
suspension
uprated turbos

Nice!

Love the BMWP BBK.

I'd add the M-Sport skirts if you can find some. Mine are being delivered tomorrow!

Sell it and buy an M3. Only kidding Flute 335i's are great cars. I'd have another in a heartbeat. Nice set of wheels would be my choice.

Flute; I suppose the best mods are the ones you use (or see) every time you drive the car - the Quaife is brilliant but you don't feel it most of the time. Ditto the intercooler.
So in my case, best mods are:
  • M sport steering wheel - reasonably simple DIY and I love its look and feel
  • Carbon fibre trim wrap - ditto
  • Switching away from run flats - no brainer for me
  • Evolve stage 1 remap - excellent value for the power gained
Personally I prefer to keep the external appearance stock; OK it doesn't look much different from a 320d to the untrained eye, but its handsome enough anyway and I like the "sleeper" idea.

Mike.
