And congratulations to the OP as well. Welcome to the is family! It is a small club indeed. I have seen 3 other 335is's...lol, other than the one in my garage...over the last couple of years.

Have had my Is for two years and it is plenty powerful stock. If I tuned mine I would get the Cobb Access port.

JB4 for sure. Completely transforms the car into a BEAST. After you add some more mods you can also switch to a more aggressive map.

Thank you. It's 50% 3M tint. It's very light, but I like it like that. Looks almost like naturally tinted glass.

If you're looking at doing tints make sure that you find a place that knows how to correctly tint the rear glass. The E92 rear glass is a bit tricky because of the 'dot matrix' layer at the top and the film tends to not stick well on it. The place that I had mine done had no idea how to do it and the top section looks like it's peeling off. I am not exactly sure of how avoid this problem but I've heard something about using black film to cover the dot matrix area. May want to search on the forum.

yeeh i agree compeltely....lightly tinted glass is very classy...i like it way more then darkly tinted glass...there is an auto club down the street from me who are very good at tints...so i think im gonna get it done there...they are a little more expensive but its better then having it peel in a couple of years...did u do 50% all around?

50% all around, except front glass of course. I like it on the windows but may consider doing 35% for the rear glass alone next time as 50% does not fully eliminate the glare from headlights at night. Might be a non-issue if you have the premium package with the auto-dimming mirror, which I do not. Here's another picture showing the tint a little better.
