I'd definitely say go for the plasti dip rear valence. Looks really good and a lot like an Mtech. It's definitey keeping me happy while i'm waiting to eventually upgrade to Mtech.

Coils are hopefully next and coming up soon. I'm hoping I have them on and installed by the time spring comes around.

Finally got a chance to take a quick video of the blowoff valve. It came out pretty terribly and sounds much better in person but the video kind of gives you an idea. I didn't have much room to boost a lot though so it was relatively quiet which is one of the things I like about it. Next time i'm going to try to get one of my buddies to film and get a better video.

Hahah that was my original goal but I think now the blacked out roundels, cf spoiler, black kidneys, wheels, etc... might have gotten rid of the sleeper look unfortunately

Thanks, very happy with the way the bov sounds since it's not too loud.

Edit: Just took this video earlier today to show how the downpipes sound outside and you can hear the blow off valve pretty well.

Yea I do get really worried about it when it's raining hard up here but I think it's pretty well protected in the fender and you'd really have to drive through a puddle on the driver side to get it wet.

Yea someone brought that up in my first thread ever posted on here. Those are actually the wheels the car comes with. You have to remember this is an xDrive not the regular 335 sport package. Because of that getting the usual 189's were optional and I guess he didn't choose to do so. Kinda sucks cause I would have loved to have the 189's as winter wheels... Now i'm on the look for some winter wheels

I've got a set of E36 M Double Spoke II's potentially up for grabs - needs a set of snow tires, otherwise in generally good shape (one wheel is peeling from age - perfect candidate for a color change).

Ehh I like them although I do wish I went with BMW Performance instead. Either way I like them and think they look much better than they were before or plain black.

Thanks! Hopefully i'll do suspension soon but i gotta save up and decide for sure what i want my next mod to be. I keep going back and forth between OSS, suspension, or an exhaust.

Finally found some pictures at the dealership before I bought it so I updated the first post with those and also added some of the recent photoshoots to the end of the first post. Looking back on those dealership pictures it is crazy how much it has changed. Definitely come a long way

Nice! I'm looking into getting those wheels on my '10 335i xdrive, and was wondering what you thought about the ride quality on the stock xdrive suspension compared to your stock wheels. I assume the pictures from when you just got your wheels was stock height?
