My New Toy

Hi Everyone,

I will finally post my first post after a long period of browsing the site. I just sold my Z4 and got a 2007 Montego Blue/Saddle 335i with the following mods:

- aFe DCI
- HKS BOV (confirmed, says it right on the BOV)
- Active Autowerke Intercooler
- Active Autowerke Short Shifter
- Active Autowerke Performance Chip
- Active Autowerke Shift Knob
- Borla Full Exhaust
- 19" M series Rims

I've had this car for only a few days now and it is just crazy fast. I plan on taking it to a dyno soon to see how much power I'm rolling on. The car gets great gas mileage for how fast it is. I was really suprised when I saw the average of 30 MPG that was on the car on the valet mapping on the chip and since then i have put it on map 5 and its getting 25 MPG.

I just had my detailer do a three step compound and wax job on it. Here are a few pictures of it (will post more later).

I plan on painting the brake calipers blue and doing the white angel eyes sometime in the near future.

VERY nice.
Just FYI, the AA tune is a little outdated and there's more power and support to be had with the other guys(Cobb, PROcede, JB4 etc.) But If you're happy with the way it performs now, then i wouldn't worry about it and enjoy the beautiful car you have

I'm not 100% sure, I will have to look at it and see. That's just what I think I heard was told from the previous owner, however it does not look too much lower than stock as you mentioned. Maybe I just remember from the other 335i I just returned back to the stealer-ship (they tried to sell me a 335i that had been wrecked saying it was never in an accident).

I just got the car about 4 days ago though so I will have to check out all the bells and whistles that came with it.

It is the Synapse BOV, I mistook it for AA due to all the other things that were AA. You have very keen eyes, I didnt even post a direct picture of it.

I have the AA BOV and AFE DCI so when I saw them on the list I looked for those two in the pic. Do you know what kind of charge pipe? The AA is loud, I've been wanting to hear (in person) or try out the synapse.

Not to nit pick but that BOV looks a lot like an HKS rather then a Synapse. Either way... nice looking car!
