The only thing that should be involved is buying one.

Otherwise there is nothing wrong with a standard 335i, great car in its own right.

side vents
flared wheel arches front and rear
side gill lights
side sills
exhausts
wheels
brake discs
mirrors
spoiler
carbon roof if E92

Interior obviously creates a new list. There are a few cars on the forum who have done a converion if you search.
Check out this thread - just a tad better than the average conversion..........

I agree, but why make it look something it isn't, it's like telling a bird you have got a 10 incher to get her into bed but in reality you have a chippolata.

Yeah, there is definitely a big difference in modding your car into something a bit different and pretending to own something you don't.
(The latter is bad taste in my opinion)

It might be cheaper to buy a M3 instead of all the bodywork/exhaust updates needed and that ignoring the Interior!

Then the next problem trying to sell it later when you got want a change, you are going to lose money.

Can't comment on the 10 incher, but I love my 335d m3 rep ( ducks for cover)

Someone else converted so price ok, 345bhp and 35-40 mpg and e92 m3 looks, inside and out!

Do what you like. It's your car!

you will lose more money than what it would cost you to buy an m3.

not only in parts and labour but depreciation too.

Save yourself the headache, go to the dealership and trade your 335 in for an M3. Just my 2 cents. At least you won't be called a poser.
