Dude, you are awesome. This gives me something to salivate over until Monday! Do you need a college recommendation man? I'd be happy to write you one

Guys, you should check out ICy J's Flickr. He's a very talented and passionate photographer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/-icyj-/

And you've left me something to salivate over until I ever have an exhaust note like yours.

I've been surfing these forums for a while and following your 'build' as well, I finally joined today just to comment how awesome your car looked and sounded in real life!

I saw you at that steep hill on The old Peak road or something while hiking on Tuesday, I heard the car and turned around to see a normal C class but then the front of your 335 popped up, made me smile and I immediately recognized that license plate. :P

What exhausts are those by the way? It sounds so "raw", if I might say, better than the M3. lol

Awesome. What a cool coincidence I only got the car back on Monday morning. I have the Autobahn Exotics Exhaust with Quad tips. It's a full axel-back system that connects directly the the down pipes. The sound is intoxicating! I've temporarily stopped listening to music when I drive. Haha.

IcyJ and I were supposed to go and take photos yesterday, but unfortunately I blew my OEM chargepipe off running a little too much boost the day before I'm waiting for an aftermarket replacement from Vishnu. Hopefully it will arrive sometime next week and we can take pictures that weekend.

I would have thought you would probably have a nice driving session before taking it home. Anyways, with that exhaust I doubt I'll even need a radio, heck it's so loud I doubt you will even hear it.

By the way, any chance of shooting videos as well once you get the car going again? Would love to hear that lovely burble again.

Hey guys, sorry I still haven't posted proper pictures of my car. I busted my OEM chargepipe a couple of days after getting my car back from the repaint and then decided to install a bunch of performance upgrades. My car is finally ready, I just need to set up a time with IcyJ to do a shoot.

This has been a terrible year for car related issues. I'd never even been in a fender bender since I started driving 13 years ago, but this year I totalled my M3 and pulled off the front bumper of my 335i a couple of months after I got it. After this paintjob, my car is going into the garage until 2013. Haha.
Your getting older, your stressed, or an ex girlfriend has a lock of your hair and made a voodoo doll

When it rains it pours, I had a similar year about 5 yrs back
