Front zsp sway bar-free

Anyone want a front sway bar, bushings and brackets from my "07 335i?
No shipping/delivery. P/U in Walnut Creek w/in the next week or I'll just toss it.
Same thing with OE front control arms.

LCI rear conversion with Karbonwerke trunk and euro tail lights later in the spring and idk about summer.
OSS/LS3 ftw. Still my fav mod

Definitely might kit up and then go for a repaint in the original color I wanted(Le Mans Blue or Deep Sea Blue), or if available get it painted in Monte Carlo Blue ala the new M5 or Tanzanite Blue. Really standout from the rest in the looks department LOL, getting tired of losing my car amongst the sea of other gray-skinned vehicles besides massive trucks.
yeah, I'm stuck on waiting maybe until christmas so I have a bit of money saved just in case any unexpected maintenance comes up. I saw the OE tuning flash is now $395, that might help me incline towards that hehe
Well, you better start modding now and get it out of the way before it all piles up! haha

Sweet! I was never a fan of Blue, but the Le Mans Blue on BMW's I saw helped change my mind. I think it'll look nice. Black accents here and there on that color make it look mean

OE sent me an e-mail when I asked them about the flash and gave me the price I stated earlier. Pricing varies on location I suppose because they're based out of SoCal.

As for modding, I'll probably start with a M-Tech bumper after a tax return, but so far I can only seem to find pre-LCI front bumpers. I'm wondering if I should get the M-Tech Carbon with quad pipes, might be a bit poserish LOL. Throw in some side skirts and I should be good to go and will eventually get my car painted. The black trim will look nice on a the lighter shade of blue. For now I plan on gathering all of my exterior parts and then installing them in one go along and then go for the paint job. Just hoard parts and then install and sell my OEM parts.

I think I still have AT&T but I'm getting about 12mpbs via phone's wifi -- not wired. Most of my internet use happens late at night so I get no traffic. Netflix FTMFW!

hahaha Nice! That's the way to go!
I'm thinking of doing an LCI conversion for my trunk and front, but I think I'm going to enjoy my car for now and easy down on the modding haha I've spent waayyy too much these past two months.

You planning on going? I would go but my car isn't good looking enough to be called a show car.

I know what you mean, since I bought my car 6 months ago I bought mods every month. I'm going to finish it off with a big bang with M3 bits and camber plates before it hits next year then i'll be saving money for Version II .

Yeah, I've had my car ever since '08 and got it with less than 500 miles on it. So far, I've enjoyed it. But ever since coming on the forums I've learned about different things to "improve" my car. Do you know how much E90 M3 control arms differ from a regular E90?
Hopefully in the next week I get my oil filter gasket leak taken care of along with spark plugs and maybe ignition coils if needed, and then FINALLY swapping the halogens out with the euro bi-xenons I've had laying around for the past couple months.

Yup. Europrojektz will be out there showing support for a good cause. You don't need to look over the top to be a show car. I when I first started showing with just wheels, lip, blacklines and black kidneys. You should come out anyway, it's for a good cause.


What does your version II consist of?

Great! I could sell you whatever parts I get off my car when I start LOL! Definitely going to start on the body, but I'm not sure what I can do for the front, but I saw some mesh kits for the intakes that look cool, but might be a pain to care for considering all the damn bugs out here in Cow Town.

True that, especially since around the evening time all the flying insects come out to play and splatter all over the car

You'll never be finish! M3 bits and camber plates are either waiting to be shipped or they've already been shipped

You should try to make it if you can.

As for applications, I can send you a blank one and you can fill it out and I'll pass it through with our board of directors to decided on. We'll review it and I'll let you know.

The forums got the best of us and the difference from the M3 & Stock Control Arms is of course M3 has better improved handling, car feels more planted to the ground, stiffer bushings compared to stock which are crappy soft bushing that wear out fast, and more negative camber i'm doing this because my bushings are almost worn out and I need to change it so why not just change everything.

Alright, i'll come out since it's for a good cause and can you pm me the info for it? I can't seem to find it.

Version II i'm going to concentrate on just pure exterior cosmetics can't really say what parts because i'm still undecided.
