Nice!!!

I just came from a 330i.. I recently purchased my E92 335i

I loved my 330i.... just always wanted a 335 coupe...

Congrats...Enjoy that car.

I'd most definitly get an Mtech front bumper if you dont like the Stock oem bumper..

If u want to take out that OEM front bumper look without spending too much, your best bet is to get a Haman front lip which will transform your front end. Just my .02

Have fun and i will be keeping track of this post.

More pics of the Blacked out 162 wheels

Ok guys, here are some more pics of the 162 wheels and also I thought I would show you guys my Wifes new whip! haha The first couple pics are lookin over the salt lake valley. Then there is one I took right after finnishing coating the wheels in my garage. Then there is a pic of the first time we washed our cars at our new place haha I was stoked! then our two 3's in my new garage (needs to be cleaned out! Not my stuff) Then last but not least is the reason that I have not been on much. Moving into my new house! So i'll be getting a check tomorrow for canceling a service contract I had on my 7.... So... what should I buy?! haha It's about $1600!

The 330ci looks beautiful

Save that money, or get an Mtech kit from Tischer.

Thats sick about getting the E92! Congrats! Yeah I love the new body style coupes!

See and I dont NOT like the Mtech, but I dont really want to spend the $1,419.95 that BAVAUTO.com wants for their kit. And I haven't been able to find another one that isn't made of shitty fiberglass. Plus i dont really have a problem with the back bumper. lol call me picky but there are somethings that I DO and some things that I DONT give a shit about haha But yeah, if you know anywhere to get the Mtech for a good price let me know.

As for the Haman front lip... I for some reason have never liked "lips" ya know? I just feel like i'm glueing something on my car haha even though you dont actually glue them. lol sorry hard to explain! but yeah I'm sure yours looked awesome! But I guess we'll see. Maybe you can post some pics of what yours looked like on this thread so I could see it!

Thanks for following, and if ya ever see something I wright, feel free to tell me whats up!

Also... since you've blacked out most of your car, black out the corner reflectors of the headlights!

First page was full of this shit.

On a more serious note, nice to see another JB 330. Hopefully you mod it differently than the rest of other E90s on here.

Too much black will ruin the car just a heads up.

Shift knob vinyl Wrap

So my stock 6 speed knob has been peeling and looks like shit... So as I passed by the "sticker shop" at the mall today I decided to ask for some scrap black vinyl to wrap the chrome bit. Turns out even though i've done some wrapping in previous cars, the shape of this knob just makes it a bitch to wrap. So I just thought I would post some before and after pics. Also, forgive the fact that the edges look like shit. The chrome piece doesn't seperate from the rubber piece so it's really hard to make it look good. Also, this is just a temp fix because I just ordered the suede performance knob from BMW today I am also going to be making some serious purchases tonight so I will update later with some pics to show you whats to come!

I've had quite a few people tell me to shadowline it... And I WAS thinking about it for a bit. But honestly I've decided to keep them polished! Just cause I think it adds a LITTLE bit of class to the car, so I dont look like some bratty teenager drivin around a car that was givin to me by my dad haha. and while I like how it looks, for some reason it has always screamed "base model" to me haha I really cant explain why.

And do you mean wheel spacers? if so why do you think I should do that?

Thats for the Congrats BTW! I've been stoked about it. I'm just excited that I have a garage now! this thread might digrade into "my dream Garage build!"
