To mod or not?

What are your thoughts about modding a new 335is? I personally think the stock has plenty of power and boost, is it worth to add intake and other performance parts? If so, which ones are worth? Post away, thanks!

Been driving the 335is for a day, and I've already had two pothole explosions... How often does this happen to you guys? Any damage because of it?

If you didn't know, a pothole explosion is when your suspension bottoms out and it sounds like someone fired a shotgun in your car.

Thanks. And, lol. It's danza kuduro from Fast Five. Definitely hit or miss depending on the audience. I tried editing in the sound, but there was so much wind you couldn't even hear anything (except the wind!). I was able to get the exhaust on the flyby at the beginning though since someone was holding the camera and not moving - so no wind blast.

Soot/black dust on back of AW 335is

Does anyone else deal with this? After a relatively quick drive I get a fine black dust along the rear of the car (back bumper and back vertical surface of the trunk). Is it running rich? Do any of you other white 335is guys deal with this too?

(sorry for the distinct lack of pictures in this post, but this IS a handy thread for the quick question).

Great mods, maybe less stickers would be cool, but still awesome nevertheless.

How did you do the matte black center slats? Also how come you didn't get the roof rails wrapped as well?

Paint the calipers black and put smoked side markers and turn signals , will look so much better
