Well... Here's my Bmw. (Pictures)

UPDATE 24/11/2013
Installed Bilsteins coilovers, really happy with those, much more stiff than stock sport suspension, and softer at the same time on potholes etc..
Installed Philips D1S xenon bulbs
>>>>Successfully converted to manual 6spd!!!!!<<<<
Ordered JB4 G5 /w 2step replay
Threw away synapse bov, got stuck and nearly blew my turboes rofl, synapse is the worst item I have ever brought in my life, not only their videos on internet are sound enhanced and sound so much louder than in reallity, their quality sucks as well. F*** synapse. If you mind about installing legit parts on your cars then throw away your synapse bovs.
installed HKS SQV4 BOV, sounds beautifull.
Removed tints on tail lights
plastidipped shark fin
replaced serpentine belt/water pump/seals
removed silver cf wrapping and installed black cf on dash and gloss red on door card trims
pictures soon!

UPDATE 26/6/2013

Sold cf csl trunk, got an ericsson amuse cf trunk, got a Bilstein (german made) coilover kit with Eibach springs, gonna install within those 2 weeks hopefully! more to come! pics soon. Teasers in page 3 and 4

UPDATE
Hi again guys
Ever since the last update, I've installed 2 other mods on my car. One is a Prosport digital red EVO series electrical boost gauge (Reasons for picking up a red boost gauge is because I thought that it flows well with the bmw red-orangish interior amber lights and control lights..)
Since I live overseas I coulden't justify paying 180$+ for a steering wheel gauge pod mount (price includes shipping) so I've custom fabricated one for basically less than 8$ Best part is, I get compliments about it, holds strong, looks classy and OEM, Doesen't get in the cluster's way (which is the most important thing). Ill do a DIY thread if you guys are interrested!!

Ever since I've gotten the car, I always drooled on the Vorsteiner v35 limited cf hood. This thing blows my mind. I was always jelly of people who owned one haha. SO I GOT ONE AT LAST
This thing.. blew my mind. Fitment is 10/10, something I have never expected at all. IMO fits better than OEM The quality is unbelievable. Its a double sided cf hood BTW.

Also removed the illest and nurburgring stickers as requested from fellow forum members.
Anyways, talk is cheap, let the pictures do the talking:
And btw, the car is dirty, she needs some lovin, and pics suck, taken with a shitberry

HOOD:
Stock hood unmounted:


V-35 mounted!!


Moar pics:




Don't Mind the background, its where the janitor lives


FITMENT:
Left side...


Right side...


Up front:


NAO for the boost gauge:

The modified Gauge pod (shortened length, shortened mount, custom mount)


Mounted: (Notice the low angle of the position where the picture was shot from)


At night, How you see it from the driver's sight:


How its mounted: Btw the glossy glue is only noticeable with a camera's flash




Before I forget, I've spotted an e90 with an interresting color combo, AW on bronze rims:


And OMFG spotted a track ready race car:



Hope You enjoyed the pics

02-12-2013:

Hey guys, excuse my poor English since its my third language. Ever since my stay here I've never thought of doing a thread about my car. Well, here it is.
Brought the car like 9 months ago, Def. one of the best cars I've ever owned.
Its a 2008 335i. Wanted an e46 M3 at first, Then I decided to go for a newer 335i instead since I have a thing for turboes. I searched for a used 6spd 335i at first, but didn't find any in the local market for used cars. I managed to get my hands on my car although it was an auto. It had a Clean car-fax one owner history. Mechanics were very satisfied from its paint/shape/engine/tranny so I rolled the dice and brought it. It came with Ambient light package, sport package, premium package etc. No navi, no easy access package, buts its okay since I could easily retrofit my car to have navi and I don't really care about easy access regardless that Its a great option to have. Came stock, Tiag on black, with woodtrims.
At first I felt that this thing housed so much power, Def. loved the turbo surge. Then a friend advised me to install a jb+ since I was stock. And that, my friends, changed everything haha.
Here are some pics: (Sorry about the low quality pics, they were shot with my shitberry.)











































Messy interior




Exterior:
V-35 double sided cf hood
Tinted tails/headlights
Mrep front bumper and sideskirts
Cf rooflip/one sided trunk
CSL 19" rims painted gloss black
M3 mirrors
shadowtrims
black kidney grills
shadow badges

Interior:
Euro M3 cluster
Tri-stitched M3 steering wheel
Wrapped interior trims in silver cf
Prosport Evo series digital boost gauge with a custom gauge pod mount

Future projects would be:
Going FBO /w aquamist +jb4
Retrofitting Navi
Manual conversion
Quaife lsd.
m style front cf lip
M-tech rear

Hope you enjoyed the pics!

navi retrofit, manual conversion sounds like you want a different car.

8xk miles, 37k$ (we pay custom/vat/overseas shipping which increases its price tag drastically. /facepalm)

Hell yeah, Tiag contrasts really well with black. Black wheels/trims/kidney grills/badges are a must on tiags IMO.
BTW, I plastidipped my trims, a single can was enough to cover both sides. Still holding strong.

No doubt that it would be another car once I retrofit navi and convert it to manual. Heck it felt as its another car when I ran jb+ for the first time lol.

Good part is, that I'm waiting for someone with a 6spd 328/335 to go to my mechanic and asks for an auto conversion, this way i get my manual gearbox +700$!! If I can't wait any longer, the mechanic would simply get a 6spd tranny out of his warehouse and convert my car free of charge including labor (but I dont get 700$)
add 1800$ for a 2012 complete navi (including labor) (new dash, new navi..)

That really isn't photoshopped?

Does it really say "illest" near the driver side headlight?

Does that mean something in one of the other 2 languages besides what it means in English?

I used photoshop just to remove e numbers off my license plate
I used the Meguiar's claybar kit and waxed it, this is why its shiny!
And illest means sickest, english meaning.

Generally, quite good looking. The "illest" sticker is played out, I'd ditch that ASAP. I've seen 10-year old VWs with that same decal. Also, the Nurburgring sticker. Unless this car has lapped the Nordschleife.

If it were mine, I'd paint the trunk lid. But that's up to you. Great work. Very aggressive, without being ricey.
