// J-Spec Dan | 06 BSM E90 330i | Sonic Tuning ST8 \\

I took a test drive of a 2006 BSM E90 330i in late April when it was put up for sale by a co-worker. The ride was smooth. The engine sounded and performed great. The BMW Performance short throw kit was silky smooth…I was almost hooked. Then I made the wise decision of getting in a test vehicle with DV during work. While we were running tests I grilled him about his 330i. Now I’m a proud owner of the 330i I test drove.

Of course, being inspired by DV’s double COTM feat, I couldn’t leave my 330i stock. I ordered Sonic Tuning ST8 LeMans (specs below). Big thanks to Jose for answering all of my questions. I then purchased Continental ExtremeContact tires from Tire Rack (specs are also below).

Specifications:
Sonic Tuning ST8 LeMans – Gunmetal w/silver polished lips
19x8.5 (ET35)
19x9.5 (ET33)

Continental ExtremeContact DW
235/35ZR19
265/30ZR19

Huge shout out to DV for taking the time to mount and balance the wheels and tires! Also, thanks for doing the golf tee mod, too!

In May I purchased a set of blacklines from Alan************.com. Thanks for answering my a bunch of my newb questions too!
Also picked up a set of WeissLicht 6000K LED’s (thanks to Bryan @ JLeviSW for clearing up an issue for me!).

Here are the before and after pics:

All thanks to you man. I'm up for the rolling shots any day. Let's get the "club" to join too, haha. We should at least get Toshi and his E82.

Thanks!

Here's another look of the passenger side headlights. The drivers side has a nice looking smear of what was once an insect.

Thanks! Maybe grilles or tints. Not sure right now.

I got a bunch of people at work giving me compliments after the transformation. I can't wait for the next phase but for now I'm pretty content...

Looking good!!!
You are definitely making some quick modding moves with the car.

Nice choice with the tires, personally I really like the DW as far as comfort and performances.

Glad everything worked out.

And holy batman that's a NICE GARAGE AREA ( SOO CLEAN)

Thanks again for hooking me up, Jose! DW's have been solid so far and they're pretty quiet while providing a lot of grip when I make some aggressive turns.

Hope to have more updates soon!
