Things to do to a "335is"

So my birthday is approaching and i decided to treat myself to my very first BMW. I decided to pick up a 2011 335is convertible in graphite black with black interior.

Ill need your guys' advice on some possible cosmetic mods i can add.
I was thinking of getting tint and wheels i just don't know what % tint. also since this is my first bmw i dont know what wheels to even begin looking at.

any feedback would be appriciated

you should get a set of color matched reflectors, a drop, and some spacers, and IMO you should keep the style 313's, they look wayyyyy too good to change, congrats btw

^ he's right also if it's your taste, do a shadow line trimming. The wheels are nice if your going for a simple look.

Yea get the color match reflectors and definitely tint. Maybe 20% all around. It's about your preference. For rims I love the HRE P40

The rims are nice but i think 18" are too small for this car. i was thinking of upgraded maybe to 19" csl or even the 19" 313.

Painted and color matched reflectors is a must!

Everything else imo is secondary...

Yea the 19" is a for sure! I was thinking about 20" but maybe the ride quality won't be as great especially if you have sports suspension. Btw, I drove that car as a rental and OMG I fell in love with it! Sexy exhaust sound, and fun to drive. Good job!

Swap out those amber markers and color match, then tint them 20% and you're good to go till you decide on extra mods!

Tints, Reflectors, painted badges/debadge, shadow line trim, spoiler/lip, and a tune if you're into engine mods.

Beautiful 'is' btw. Welcome to the club!

Some of them come with 19s I don't think the ones I have are the actual 313's because 313 are 19"

I've got a 335is and I find yours a bit interesting compared to mine. First, I thought no 335is had fog lights. I know mine doesn't and it wasn't an option. If you read all the reviews for the 2011 model year they all stated BMW deleted the fog lights because they needed the air intake room down there. Maybe they changed their tune for the 2012 model year.

Second, I also thought all 335is's came with shadowline trim, again mine did and I didn't see where it was an option.

As to mods, as others have stated, fix the side reflectors, window tint, replace those 18" with 19", shadowline the chrome, and add a rear deck spoiler.

Apparently only the convertibles came with fog lights, don't really know what they did with the intake. As for the shadow line trim, I really don't know why I have chrome. I'd love to find out though!
