Cool, I've been reading nothing but positive about the spacers. I'm excited about getting this NA car getting a bit quicker not faster.

I'm going the same route as you bro, i'll be getting verstrabe spacers installed when I get my alignment and thrust arm bushings done.

I can't wait for my car to be sitting flush and tucked in

I totally misunderstood what you were saying. I asked myself, "how are spacers going to make the car faster?"

Not faster but with quicker throttle response is what I want, with lighter wheels/accessories and tune. Kinda make sense? since I have a 328i

Throttle response won't change honestly, the fastest the car will ever feel is in DS mode. If you are really trying to go with quicker acceleration the best thing you could do is remove weight from the inside.

Lighter wheels for sure and a tune can help with throttle response. Do the N52 guys still use the BMS/JBX tune or is there another new flash/piggy out?

Then driving on a cross street off of El Camino Real (Palo Alto/Stanford), and got a speeding ticket going 42 mph. yup, 42 in a 25 zone. Didn't even know, I guess ignorance is no excuse. First ticket in the 335i.

To top it all off, 3.5 hours to get home.
That's rough. :/

Probably the only interior to be removed are the front seats with recaro. So far I'm looking at AA tune with a handheld tool. In my mind I wanna go for better acceleration/launch rather than reaching highest speed.

Definitely tune and weight reduction. Lighter hood, trunk, wheels and seats. Does the N52 have a supercharger kit?

I remember when i had my car Gavin from MMW or something down in socal was in the process of creating a kit but i don't know how that ever panned out. It took him almost a full year to even post pictures ect. I think he finally did make a kit but his car was the only one to see it for "Q&A testing"

Personally is you want to go FI N52 you are better off trying to stuff S54 in there and AA SC it or HPF. THe N52 doesn't have nice forged internals like the N54 does and will break once you start trying to push a lot of boost.


*edit*

Found it. Guess it can run a little bit of boost but for how long is the question. Plus it doesn't seem like it'll ever be mass produced and it still only gave 250hp. That thread is full of drama btw.
