No current exhaust clips for my car but the exhaust sounds exactly the same as these videos.




Trust me on this, once you get the full kit you'd want to buy new wheels hahaha
I've put a hold on my engine mods, saving up for some new wheels and coilovers.

I want to slam the car so bad!!!

19" M3 Rims and if you can stretch the budget to the competition pack 19" rims

Out of curiosity may I ask how much is fitting and painting (You can PM me if you don't wish to make it public)

Also, the Meistershaft GT Racing quad tips (glossy black)





Undecided on what color I should go with the diffuser, the tips are glossy black.
Any suggestions?
You won't like my suggestion

Big thanks to Jin & Steven at Active Motorwerkes for checking the car and installing the tips and diffuser.
Luckly the problem wasn't a big issue, Jin replaced some of the hoses, old one is starting to crack.

Happy with the Meisterschaft quad tips and Duke Dynamics diffuser (great fitment)







Now I have to save up for coilovers and matte black fat concave or dish wheels.

Looks damn hot, im not usually a lover of quad tips and im surprised the black tips and black diffuser look so well together generally i would prefer to have the tips contrasting to accentuate them.

This definately gives the 335i some much needed agressive look from behind!

Thanks Shane!

I too wasn't sure how the black tips would go with a black diffuser but once they were installed together it looks great! Diffuser is more of a flat black then glossy, it looks glossy due to the additive they used to make the diffuser scratch-proof. My first thought was to paint the diffuser with a darker shade of grey but I'm glad I went with the black.

So Friday I received my oem M3 air ducts and oem M3 carbon fibre mirrors, thanks to Stu (BMR) and Shane (DR-JEKL).





I dropped the mirrors off this morning with my panel beater who will re-paint it to glossy black.

I had no plans for today so I decided to install the air ducts, it was a simple task, most of the time was spent trimming the ducts and refitting the front bar to make sure the ducts cleared.

Front bar off.


The ducts are a straight fit onto our M3 rep front bumper, anyone with a M3 rep front I recommend you going with the air ducts and fog delete, makes a big difference to how the car looks.


The ducts came with metal plates attached to it so I removed them for better airflow to the oil cooler.



Test fitting the ducts to the bumper.




As you can see in this picture you can attach the drivers side air duct to oil cooler but you will have to trim the front duct, I decided to attach both ducts to the bumper, easier and looks cleaner.


Next, was to trim off the fog grill brackets from the front bumper, using a rotary dermal makes it so much easier. Just be careful with trimming especially if your front bumper is already painted.


Trimming done!




Ducts with fog grill brackets removed.



The ducts were too long, it would hit the guard liner so trimming needed to be done. Decided to use a hack saw to make it easier hahaha


I trimmed enough to clear guard liners, cars chassis etc and not too much that you would see it from the front.


Double sided tape was used to secure the ducts to the bumper, I also used sikaflex just to be safe.


Passenger side and drivers side attached!




Front bumper back on!




And the finish product, I'm really happy that I went with the fog delete route. The car looks so much better, I was sick of looking at the empty fog grills hahaha.












It was a simple DIY, so anyone can pretty much do it, only took me a couple of hours by myself.
