My e90 335i "Build" Thread - UPDATED PAGE 2 3/16/2015

Hey everyone,

Just figured I would post some pictures and progression of my 335i. I previously came from a g35 coupe that I modded. For practicality reasons, I needed to sell my beloved coupe but didnt want to sacrafice luxury and speed - hence my reason for moving into a 335i. Couldn't pass up the deal on this prelci Msport - even though I wanted an LCI model. My car is pretty hard to come by considering that its a fully loaded e90 Msport with 6speed manual.

Onto the pics! (Pardon some of the shitty cell phone/instagram pics (thompsac25 on IG)


My previous ride - 2005 Infiniti G35 coupe, 6MT with JWT Popcharger, HKS Hi-Power exhaust, Tanabe DF210 springs, Nismo front bumper, 07 Projectors, HIDs, LEDs, Varrstoen ES1's spaced to 19x9.5 +2 (front) 19x10.5 -3 (rear):









My current ride - 2008 BMW 335i sedan with OEM Blacklines. Msport, fully loaded. Mods in order of appearance:


Stock with CF mirrors and CF Mtech spoiler:






19'' Avant Garde M355:




Plasti-dipped OEM style 62's:



Gloss Black Kidney Grills:



BMS DCI:



Cobb AP:



Tein STech springs:




CF Splitters, Gloss Black Shadowline, overlays, smoked sidemarkers:




VRSF Catless Downpipes:


Active Autowerks Signature Exhaust:





Walnut Blasting done by TurnIn Concepts in Cincinnati:



VRSF FMIC:





RB Turbos installed



Got tired of the exhaust drone in-cabin with all of the mods, so I installed the stock midpipe and switched to BMW Performance mufflers with black chrome 4'' Cyba tips:








After that, I was tired of the outdated prelci headlights, so I had OSS Designs modify them. Matte black housing, blackout orange reflectors with "LCI Style" pin striping, "LCI Eyebrow" with custom red pin stripe, RGB DTM square halos with RF color changing remote. This is the very first Prelci sedan RGB DTM headlights from OSS.

















After that, I had the urge to change the rear end! LCI Rear Conversion!









(My exhaust tips are too long, I plan on getting them shortened)


Then came my M3 replica front bumper!

Fitment pics:







Painted Pics:













While I had the bumper off, I also switched to LCI headlights and added HID Fogs






I still need to install my V-style Carbon Fiber lip, so I will update my thread later!

As always, more to come!

Hope you enjoyed the pics! Follow me on Instagram for more pics: thompsac25

Thanks!
Adam

Honestly, it sounded awesome outside, but in-cabin drone was bad at certain RPMs. Granted, I had catless downpipes, so that was the main reason. I think the Active Autowerke exhaust would be perfect if you werent planning to do downpipes or anything else. I even added Vibrant resonators on the AA which minimized drone significantly, but for sale driving, it was starting to give me headaches.

Thats just my opinion
Everyone has their own likes/dislikes. Some people enjoy a loud exhaust and drone, I dunno

Like I said, if you werent planning to do downpipes, I think you'll be ok with the Active Autowerke. Give it a shot!

Thanks for the positive comments! I know my picture quality sucks - I need to stop taking iPhone pics and use a real camera, or even my GoPro!
