Im coming from 2 previously owned Subaru Sti's and the last car was a badass so i have a lot of work ahead with the 335i to make it better and faster then the Sti!! Goals right now for the car are to get it sitting and looking right with wheels and coils, FBO, and then upgrade to single turbo Im from New Jersey and ill be working with a VERY well known shop in the STI and EVO community PRECISION TUNING. They've decided to widen their clientele and BMW fell on that list, so ill be on that dyno making some noise real soon I look foward talking to all you guys and getting feedback on the car!
