Some Backstory: All throughout high school I wanted a bmw 335i, but couldn't quite afford one, after graduating and getting a job and with good pay I was able to pick up my first one march 2016, a 2008 e90 335i, with 70K on the clock in immaculate condition. Bought the extended warranty and 10 months / 35,000 miles later, ended up selling it, as it was out of warranty, and after seeing the repair bills and work that was covered while under warranty knew I didnt want to own the car any longer. I still loved the 335i platform, and the e9x chassis, so I knew whatever I got next was going to be another BMW. I picked up this 2013, in October 2016, it was a 1 owner lease, had 30,000 miles on it. As soon as I drove it I fell in love with BMW again and knew that was the car for me, ended up buying it the next day.

That brings us to where we are now, at the end of march, so far here are the mods i've done currently, with plenty more to come

Current:
Powder coated black rims
Toyo R888R Tires 235/265
CTX Tint all around
M performance front bumper
M performance rear carbon spoiler
M performance front carbon lip
M performance rear bumper
M performance Power Kit
Performance Exhaust
JB4, running E30
JB4 Flex Fuel Wires
JB4 Bluetooth Connect kit
BMS N55 Intake
VRSF Catless DP's
ECS Spacers
XHP Full custom EGS / TCU tune by @RBT-Tuning
FMIC
VRSF CargePipe
Fuel-It Stage 2 LPFP

Needing install
Pure Stage 2 Turbo
ECU Unlock


Future Plans:
KW coilovers
MHD BEF
Pure Stage 2 Turbo
BMS OCC
Klassen M51R Wheels/Tires

Also just wanted to thank everyone whos on E90post for being super helpful whenever I had questions and that there really is a great community here!

Let me know what you think about the car, and open to any suggestions for future modifications! Especially wrap suggestions, looking to change up the color!

What a beautiful ride! I am a firm believer that the E92's in particular look best in AW, your car just reaffirms my opinion.

Spacers installed!!

Finally got some spacers to help fill out the gap, just need some suspension to drop it a few thenths.

10MM rear 5MM front was the setup I went with: no rubbing even with people in the back, and it really helps give it a way more aggressive stance, you can really see the toe and camber.

Pics attached!

Stage 2 LPFP installed,

Took some work, and blew the fuse for the Pump control module, ended up installing the New pump twice, and the old pump once to troubleshoot. But cars good now and running strong!

Looks great! Is it me, or do a lot of E92s have sagging exhaust issue? My Performance exhaust sags/pokes out a bit on the passenger side but it is installed properly (screws lined up).

Did you use extended studs for the spacers? Would love to get more of a front 3/4 shot with the spacers installed!

Ya the exhaust is installed properly and the rubber hangers for it seemed to be fine without excessive play, I havent really paid much attention to fixing it, but its on the back of my mind.

I used the ECS spacers, so the extended bolts (Not Studs) that came with the spacers are what are currently installed, each kit comes with the appropriate bolts in a nice black finish. im going to switch over to titanium studs when I get new wheels, and no longer will I need spacers since Ill just get wider wheels/tires. Already running into grip issues with 265mm in the rear.

Ill take some photos and update the thread when I get home today!

I keep checking in on this thread, really appreciate your systematic approach and updates with photos.

Those Toyos with the spacers... I think that's where mine is headed next.

Ya IAT is still higher then I want it. next time I get down there will replace.

Currently working on issues with my stage 2 LPFP, for some reason it keeps blowing the fuel pump control module fuse #70, I have a couple idea as to why, One of the lines had a small kink in it which may be causing the pump to overdraw current to keep up. will probably replace that line, and replace/maybe upgrade the fuse is I get confirmation from Fuel-It that its safe to do so, and see how she does.

Quick update:

Car went in for standard inspection/oil service/spark plug service/ OFHG replacement.

when I got the car back, I took it out for a drive and turned out the Engine Oil cap was never replaced/reinstalled loosely and it was no where to be found when I popped the hood, after noticing oil dripping out my front bumper and onto the passenger side quarter panel.

Long story short, its at the dealer, they've remedied the issue, and confirmed that it drives fine with a new oil cap. It getting a full detail courtesy of my local dealership, and should be done today after 5. If weather permits, ill post some new pics up!
