I think the flare is too big. Tone it down and itll look sick.

Just cut the flares down to the point that they stick out just as much as the fronts so you get a nice "square" look to the car.

You cant expect good comments about the car until you finish it. the fenders are held on with painters tape! Im sure once its complete it would look great. But i agree with some of the other posters. Repaint the whole car once your done.

The flare on the M3 is perfect. I think that is what you should aim for. What you have right now is too extreme. I thought johnnymu's rear flare was too extreme also. From certain angles, it looked horrible and really out of place.

Your going to need at least 2-3 times more tape for those flares to stay on at highway speed.
(I kid)

Nice setup. I agree that the inside of the flare should be shaved slightly in order to keep the flare from looking too exaggerated.

What car are those flares originally purposed for?

I think youll be ok as long as its done properly. One thing once your finished is get the Whole car resprayed so it dosent look like its all pieced together. White is a very difficult color to color match once youve started replacing things and you already have half of the car replaced. Good Luck!

The "real thing" is slightly overrated I'm afraid
I can't believe a fellow bimmer fanatic is saying that.

http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Conte...#Story/Process

I suggest you take a look at "Facilities" and "Process" section of the videos.
Pretty much everything functional in terms of driving have been customized by the the M division. (the video states 50% of a regular bmw is completely custom made by for the M)

This isn't a Honda Civic Type R, where the Civic is just modified more powerfully and slapped on a "R" badge. The M cars are designed from regular bmw's by a complete different team of engineers and M facilities independant of normal bmw facilities : this is the Motorsport division.

Sorry, off my soapbox. I love all bimmers, but there is a reason why an M is an M. I doubt slapping on a chip and putting aftermarket suspension on a 335 is as in-depth as the 50% difference in parts and an M engineer test driving around Nurburgring with a prototype M car and criticizing it and tweaking it to make it an M....

Ok, off my soapbox. Don't mean to start another 335 v M debate..just chiming in my 2 cents...with all that said, I wish you good luck on this project..everyone has different tastes and rights to do what they want to their car to style it however they choose. If you feel you want the 335 to look like an M, hey go for it! Ii'm sure it'll come out beautifully...

Different strokes for different drivers. That's very clean, though.

Looking at the back end of the flare it looks like it will be recessed in a bit more, so I think you will be able to pull of that look
