My 2008 AW 335i Daily Driver

Hey everyone,

I want to officially introduce myself and contribute back to the forum that I've used as an amazing tool for modifying my car the last couple years. I live in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and I'm the proud original owner of my 2008 AW 335i.

A quick background: My previous cars included a 1999 Saab 9-3 turbo which is when I first fell in love with turbocharged cars. I upgraded my Saab with an aftermarket ECU, full 3" exhaust, intake, and BBS wheels. After selling the Saab, I purchased a 2004 Subaru WRX which only fueled my desire for modifying cars. My WRX was upgraded with a Cobb accessport, VF-34 turbo, Perrin intake and intercooler, STi injectors and fuel pump, full 3" exhaust, and Rotora wheels. The WRX was protuned by XX-tuning and dynoed at 304whp which made for a reasonably quick daily driver. This leads me to my current dream car, my 335i

As of right now, she has:
JB4
Active Autowerks 3" downpipes
Cp-e intercooler & Upgraded Oil Cooler
Cp-e intakes
Bosch spark plugs
ECS boost gauge
M3 spoiler
Di-noc 3M carbon fiber interior
Alufelgen SF-71 gunmetal 19" 8.5/9.5
Continental DW 235/35R19 and 265/30R19 tires
I also want to note that I'm sitting on stock sport suspension

And everyone's favorite part... lots and lots of pictures along the journey!




























Thanks for looking and let me know if you have any questions! And yes, it was 74 degrees outside today

Evan

The boost gauge is probably my favorite non-performance mod. It adds incredible value in everyday driving and I can't believe it took me so long to get one.

I originally ordered the Cp-e catless downpipes but were on backorder at the time so I decided to go with AA instead. I love the catless downpipe sound with my stock exhaust, there's no drone and sounds aggressive at WOT. However, if I had to do it all over again and had extra time, I'd either wait to buy a used quality downpipe or the VRSF which has been getting good reviews for half the price.

Thanks for everyone's comments!

I don't know why, but BMW emblems in the wheels add so much to the car that I can't stand not seeing them. Great mods so far though, and a beautiful car!
