Newbie

Just wanted to introduce myself.

Got my car about a month ago. I have a 335xi coupe.

I love it so far, but it looks like a damn suv. I don't know what I should do first - Drop it, or go with the Dinan flash.

I really like the M6 replicas, but don't know if I go too crazy spending money on things.

I don't want to spend too much money, but don't want to be bone stock either.....

Thoughts anyone?

I want both.....btw, I see on ebay people selling their stock 189 rims for $1,300 - 2,000.

Who the hell would want to pay that much for stock rims?

If I can get the M6 reps for 1,800 and sell my rims for something close to that I would be a very happy camper.

I def. want to do the Dinan, just dont know if its too soon for it. I'm a nervous nellie, and I think I need the warranty for peace of mind.

I was way impressed with the power when I first got it. Then winter came, drove careful, and I'm impressed with the power again now that the snow is gone.

I haven't done it, but I'm told suspension should be your first mod...esp on the xi. Get rid of the box look.

2) H&R Coilovers
3) Tint
4) M6 replicas
5) Dinan Flash
6) Aero lip

Should I go in a different order?

to the OP... (sstt or JB2 or Helix attache ) + m6 reps = 2000-2200= dinan flash... i personally like the sstt better but i think the helix and the m6y reps would be perfect for u and u get a better performance than just the dinan flash....

Just curious, why don't you guys care about the warranty? That's my main reason why I want the Dinan Flash. I hear you loud and clear about the better performance of the others. Is it just me that's a freak and worry too much about the warranty?
