UPDATES UPDATES UPDATES!

Got my coilovers in. Very happy with the ride height. Probably will go just a tad lower once winter is over.



My project for today was installing my M wheel w/ alcantara trim and wrapping my trim in creamy vinyl to match my creamy wheels ;D I'm very happy with how it turned out. I can't wait to get my wheels on to compliment it.

I also installed a alcantara shift boot, and a performance alcantara shift knob to match the steering wheel trim.

Looks good. Good move ditching the Audi. I owned Audi's for 10 years up until last year and I felt they were starting to decline about 2 years ago. I now a 2011 335xi and a 08 328xiT and couldn't be happier. Will never go back. Quattro is nice but XDrive is just as good.

This looks nice. (I saw the new one on the last page but this still looks great.)

I'm running Falken 452's.

Today I will have pics up of the car with the wheels mounted. It looks nice right now but before the entire world sees it I want to take care of a couple minor details.

Well I really wanted to clean it up before I took some pictures and wanted to use my camera and not my iPhone, but i can't keep you guys waiting any longer*

Overall I am very happy with how it turned out. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but I really like it and I believe it truly expresses my personality. I am currently running a 20mm spacer in the rear but will be bumping it up to 25mm-30mm, rolling my fenders just a tad, and adding a bit more camber.

I also ended up plasti dipping my window trim and front grills because the chrome clashed really bad with the cream.

Nice stance could poke more though hopefully the spacers help out a bit. I went through your thread and loved the progress and all the work that was done by yourself. Definitely great job my friend keep it up

The rims look amazing, nice to see someone doing something original! did you take the chrome trim off to plastidip it? also any clear coat? because it will prob start to chip after a few car washes im guessing.

Thanks! It's on there pretty thick. I've had good luck with it in the past on other stuff so hopefully it holds up! I took the upper portion off and masked off the lower portion.
