Talking Surprise in APRIL, more details to come!

As featured on Bimmerpost Homepage.

Last post before I get my car back in November, its been quite a long road not helped by the fact that everytime I thought the car was almost done, I found more things on this forum that I wanted to do!

Keep your eye out in November in the pictures section, for......."Surprise in NOVEMBER, its finally done!"


Sorry for the lack of posts, replies and updates and pics! I've been trying to get settled into new job! As many of you can tell, its far past April by now and yeah there's still much to do and many more mods that I've decided on along the way!

At this moment ETA is looking more like end of June to Mid July!

Anyways for those who want only pics and haven't looked at this thread before, you'll find progress pics on pages 3,4,5,7,12,13,14!

More pics soon as per usual! IDRIVE CIC part 1 is waiting at the post office! (5/28/2010)





Hi all!

Been holding my breath since Nov, well actually Sept 2009!
Definately looking forward to introduce my car to you all when it
finally gets to see the light of day in April by which time it's spent more,
than 5 months in the workshops!

I must admit, this forum and its members and vendors have been a huge source of inspiration for me! Especially the other Alex's M3 conversion! (Black/Green) It has been a really long and testing time!

Okies, well here's what my car started life out as:

2007 Manual 335i coupe purchased with 20,000kms
Space grey, standard 5 spoke 18" rims optioned with comfort access and professional nav.

Without giving away too much.......(they'll be a full write up coming, with pics)

- M3 body conversion (I know a lot disapprove of this but honestly, I couldn't find a kit that I liked better)

- M3 side mirrors (Still have CF covers for these but deciding whether or not to put them on!)

- Exhaust and catless dump pipes

- LCI updated tail lights (Had aftermarket LED ones but only as a temporary thing until these came out!)

- New CF bonnet and trunk

- New CF front lip

- New interior accents

- 20" rims

- Respray into a ferrari color

- 3 BMW performance goodies

- Procede

- Meth

- Customised speedo

- Intercooler

- Chargepipe and forge valves

- CDV replacement

- Aftermarket air filter

- Koni FSD (on backorder Grrrr.....)

If there are any wondering why I didn't just go for a M3, my total project cost including labor is still under 2/3 of the cost a M3 over here in Australia.

Besides I got bitten by the tuning bug long long ago. I know a lot of the mods may not be to many's tastes but many of you that have been on the tuning band-wagon will know and appreciate that its takes a lot of time, effort and money to tune and its very much a personal pleasure!

Well that's it so far, the asthetics are pretty much done so waiting for the performance mods to be completed! Stay tuned!

There are some random pics of the beginning of the build which shows the fitment of the M3 CF hood the replica fenders (which have now been dumped for the original M3 fenders due to fitment issues!) the replica M3 front bar!

There were no pics of the replica M3 rear bar as the first one I got was bent completely out of shape, with no chance of being heated back into shape!

There's also a few pics of the car nude, for those of you that have not seen a 335i without most of its clothing!

Lastly there are a few pics of the CF trunk I chose. I had the specfic requirement that it had to be long rather than tall and it had to be more square! The only reason being is that I've seen a few cars with Vorsteiner trunk and even though I think its a great piece of kit (very expensive tho!) I wanted something that would seperate my car. The end result was ordering a CF trunk, in which the pics were really blurry and quite little information was available! LOL! But the end result was a trunk which looks like a hybrid of the outline of amuse and vorsteiner than has been somewhat tamed.

I was quite tense before it went onto the car, thinking that I should gone with the vorsteiner but after it I saw the finished product I'm happy with the way it follows the lines of the car and makes the car look wider as it isnt too tall, which is very much what I wanted to achieve!

So more pics to come although I might start a new thread when I have the finished car
