Monaco Blue? Congrats, there's all of like four of us on here with that color, haha.

Also, I know I've been hinting at it before, but it would be a lot of fun to do a meet again, especially if we could get all the guys from Rob's meet together - you all seemed like a good bunch.

Thanks! She's actually Black Sapphire Metallic, but it must be the picture / reflection of the sky bringing out some blue.

Must be Dan! How's it going? I love the power. Completely different animal from the last car. Only have the BMS DCI in so far as I've been taking care of small cosmetics mainly, but the Cobb is on the plan for the next month. What do you have done to yours?

Ya Dan it is haha, been going good glad summer finally hit we should get together some time do a drive. I am always washing my car in Brighton ScrubaDub were do you live now? I sold my cobb in the winter and have yet to pick up a new tune, its so easy though with cobb you will def love it transforms the car.

I have done a few things here and there - 3in DP, AE Quad Exhaust, DD Hood, Mtech Font, M3 Sides, BMW Performance Splitters / Spoiler, Studs/lugs Wheels, Lux V3. Have Vargus Stg 2 on the way need to have my stockers replaced. Last thing would be Mtech rear and DD Quad diffuser but that might be a bit of time maybe next summer.

Just installed the Performance pieces last weekend after paint. Give the car a lot more aggressive look but the rear def needs some black accents now, might change the rear wing for the CF look i painted over it. Here are some pics.

Hot damn that's clean. That Duke Dynamics hood is by far my favorite, nice to see someone on here has it. I'm hoping to pick one up without the vents sometime.

Wow, love everything you've done to it. Are those the TR motorsports MT1s? They have been on my want list for a while. Why'd the Cobb go away?

Tiago, I had no idea you guys were based in Mass. I've been eyeing the downpipes you guys have.

Thanks that's the look i have been going for, as well as function with all the parts. I love the DD hood cant beat the lines had it for about 2 years now. The vent also have a function not just for looks. I have never seen my engine temps over over the 2nd to last middle line never even mind getting to the middle and if you put your hand over them they dissipate crazy amounts of heat.

Good eye, everything I have added to the car helps in some way as for performance. Splitters and Wing are wind tunnel tested by BMW to add downforce, Mtech front helps with air flow for cooling, Hood vents dissipates heat, wheels are light as you know. I opted for 18x9 square for autox and HPDE not sure if you can get this size anymore though. Not sure about the M3 Sides though might just be a looks thing car would be off without them.

Cobb was awesome but it was winter time so the car was stored and i used the money for some other part i am sure. I will be getting something again to handle the new turbos.

Congrats, enjoy the car!

In more irritating news, some prick keyed me last night. Any recommendations for paint correction services?

Any rubbing in the front with the 18x9? Haven't learned applicable offsets either with the E9xs yet. What tires and sizes are you on? Looking to get rid of the runflats soon.

Pretty much my mentality when making my list of future mods. Mtech and the performance high kick are coming hopefully later this year.

Nice looking car. But for some reason i can't get used to the vents on the hood.

What are you dropped on? It looks perfect.

I am running 255x35x18 all around, with a 5mm spacer in the front and a 12mm spacer in the rear. As for rubbing if i do full lock in the front its very slight but nothing to be concerned about at all, just slightly hits the fender liner this can be shaved. Mtech and High Kick transforms the car completely you will def love it not to mention Mtech will help slightly with cooling, brings in more air. When i get the upgraded turbos i will have to do something about the rears because traction will be a issue prob CCW if i can swing it.

Thanks, ya the vents are not for everybody and its not only cosmetic plus I like the aggressive look.

As for the drop the car has the OEM sport suspension, cant recall the exact specs for that but when i first bought it i thought the same thing until i looked up the vin.

Hey guys,

Been a while since I posted because I've been driving my evo X. Thinking its time to sell it and come back to BMW. I've got some serious back issues and those recaro seats aren't doing me any favors.

Considering a 335i if I can find the right deal on one. Also considering an E46 M3 SMG, or even possibly a E60 M5 that my friend will have for sale in a bit. It all depends on the funds etc.

Just thought I'd stop back in and say I'm strongly considering coming back to BMW.

You can get pretty aggressive with wheels on these cars. Not lowered an 18x9 with a 235 would have 0 issues, I have a 245 and full lock only backing up the tire just barely touches the fender liner.

19x9 ET 24 with a 245/35 up front
19x10 ET 24 with a 275/30 (will rub with passengers)
Stock sport suspension

Depends on the model. Pre-LCI sedans have the most room out back. There are tons of threads on this.

I took lots and lots of measurements and trolled the forums before purchasing wheels that I knew would fit and first try it's spot on.

Test fit one of the rears yesterday
(19x10.5 ET 25):

What would you be looking for for it? I don't know the budget quite yet, just starting all the planning etc. Definitely want to check out this E60 M5 that my friend just got at an AMAZING price. He has it in 2 weeks. I could get it from him (for a massive massive hookup price) of just under 30k. The car has 70k on the body but is MINT and has never seen snow, but the original owner mis shifted over reved and blew the motor. So 70k on the body 29k on the motor.

Its definitely going to cost me if I want to get that, not sure if its even an option. Still owe some $$ on the evo, but those are pretty easy to sell apparently.

If I find the right deal on a 335 it'll be saving me cash compared to paying off the evo. Love the evo, just can't sit in it for more than 5-10 min without insane pain from this spinal thing I've got going on. Progressive spinal arthritis basically. So I need to find a car that is more comfortable, but I don't want it to feel like a dog compared to the evo. The 335 is no doubt slower than my evo with 80 extra HP in mods, but as long as I am close I should be happy.

Now if that M5 is an option on the other hand...thats an all around upgrade


Shoot me some info on your car and how much you'd be looking for. I'm still just planning so I can throw it into the ring of options. I know you took care of it too.

Really looking mainly for paddle shifting, but I'll still consider other 335 for the right price.

Finally got the new wheels and tires on. So far I like the tires better than the Potenza RE760s I had on there.
