Freshly Dropped E90 LCI 335xi dusk/fog photo shoot

Had my car dropped a few weeks ago and finally decided to bring out the DSLR today. I took the pics way too quick and rushed so they didn't really turn out as well as I hoped. Some turned out nice though and I decided i'd rather post them up on here than just delete them. I also tried editing them a bit just darkening the grey a little with a cheap mac app called pixelmator and they turned out ok Sometime this week i'm hopefully going to go out and take some higher quality pics that I can have a member here edit for me on lightroom and then post a proper photo shoot. Those pics will probably also show the drop a bit better than these did.

Let me know any thoughts/suggestions. Keep in mind these are the winter wheels so small and don't look that great. I'm also going to lower the rear a bit. We did a rake on purpose to make it look more aggressive which I love but the rear could still use a bit lower to make the difference more subtle imo. Anyways here they are:

Edit: Forgot to mention in case anyone was wondering it's dropped on KW V1's

I can do the lightroom editing for you. Just tell me which photos you want done!

Note: They have to be high quality with no disruption and cant be grainy otherwise it makes it near impossible to really make it look good.

I already have a member who's willing to do them but thank you for the offer . I would've done them for these pics but like you said they need to be high quality. These came out pretty grainy which sucks but i'll take some better ones next time...

Ditch the rep splitters and spoiler, plastidipped diffuser, debadge it, and take off the brake stickers. Would look alot cleaner IMO.

I agree it would definitely look cleaner but nowhere near as mean and aggressive which is my main goal

Looks alot better then before but it needs to be lower in the front as well as the back and IMO. Also really puts the focus on how much your wheels are sunk in, spacers will help for sure with the look. You might not even need to go lower depending how the it looks after the spacers

Yea idk yet haven't made up my mind but I might keep front as is. With the height now I have to leave parking lots at huge angles and go down so slowly... I think the 19" wheels in the summer will make a big difference. I'm not going to get spacers for these wheels since it's just for winter but once the summers are on I may space them out depending on how they sit. Before being lowered they were pretty decent so i'm hoping they'll be fine now. If not I can always do spacers

Yeah fit them see how they look and go from there. I would just give it a little more lower in the front and bring the rear down just a little so there isn't so much gap there. Clean car though dude

Thanks! I'm probably going to set it up to sit pretty flush on the summers. I'm thinking of still having it sit a bit higher in the back than front when all is said and done to give it the aggressive stance. Front is going to depend all on how it looks with 19's but for now this is good I guess. I just took the RAW pictures today so once they're edited sometime in the next few days I should be able to put them up. They're much higher quality than these so they show the drop much better. Love your car btw

Nice dude sounds like a good plan. I like a nice rake on the car actually. My front sits alot lower then the rear and with the wider rear tire/rim it really gives it a aggressive stance. You have the right idea I will keep an eye out for you when the winter ends winter rims FML

Yea I hate these winters wheels... I wish we could at least get snow here so I could have some fun with the AWD and winters but we haven't had much this year

They're from JBspeed. I'm probably going to go to a body shop to have them glued on sometime this week since I can't seem to be able to tape them well enough to get it flush with no gaps

Thanks! I just got them cause they were cheap and look decent. For next winter i'm trying to find a set of style 189's I can use. Surprisingly enough theres actually a bunch of E9x's running this exact setup for winter wheels... I know of at least 2 more on the forums

While I was scrolling through, I thought you were doing a burn-out. Turns out it was probably very cold outside. :P
