Evening people, So after passing my 2007 335d onto the missis i did fancy a change from BMW's as ive run them for the last 5years and it needed to be diesel due to my work but had to have abit of punch to it to. So after considering the E350 coupe and the A5 3.0tdi coupe i couldnt help but think the 335d had the best all round package and the better performance esepcially when remapped, so in april i pushed the button on a 59 plate 335d in Sapphire black with red leather.



I had already done a few mods to the old E92 so i had already removed a few mods and gave them to paintshop before i even picked up the car im impatient haha.



Mod list to date:

Blacked Out Badges
Darkened Indicators
M3 Side Skirts
CSL Stlye Bootlid
Carbon Fibre Grilles
4" Black Chrome Cyba Tips
19" Matte Black VMR 710's (Now Anthracite)
Non Runflat Tyres, 275 Rear Tyre Setup
Eibach Springs

Mods to do:

Private Plate To Go On
Lug Conversion/Anodized Lugs
Carbon Fibre Front Splitter
Carbon Fibre Rear Diffuser
Carbon Fibre Roof Spoiler (Small Version)
12mm & 15mm Eibach Spacers
Remap-(I will get Evolve to do this after the winter as their map on the other car transformed it)
LCI Tail Upgrade
LCI Angel Eyes

Ill stop there as it goes on forever lol.

This month ill be getting the diffuser, roof spoiler and spacers so watch this space.

Im gonna go for the black and carbon fibre look and hopefully it will turn out pretty good in the end.


The car started off with matte Black VMR 710 but last week i had my rear tyres replaced and the useless tyre fitter decided to burn the lacquer off the edge of the wheel the whole way round. They did cough up and paid for the rears to be powder coated and i decided to pay for the fronts as i fancied a change and decided on anthracite which is now growing on me.


Anyway i know this wont be too some peoples taste but here are some pics

I know the pics are too big but didnt know how to re-size

Very smart. Love it. Where are you getting your anodised lugs if you don't mind me asking? Red I presume? Been looking into it myself at mo but the lugs available looked a bit basic! (Cheap though, £1 each)

Cheers. Yea red is what im thinking but i may just go black, undecided yet. I looked at some on ebay and they looked pretty good and also some on the CA Auto website and they were really smart but not too cheap.

Haha cheers

To be honest no, i went to my local dealer and the one i went to look at sold the day before, i sat in a E250 and just didnt like the feel of it inside (bit old man-ish, sorry any merc lovers) and the salesman there was a top nob and didnt seem to take me seriously.

A quick update, Had my eibach springs on for a week now and the ride is definately harder but is tolerable. The handling is miles better and there is hardly any body roll anymore. For the heavy engined cars the drop on the front is perfect, however my rear seems to have raised a touch which is strange. Got is booked in to have the alignment done next week and im gonna run a touch more camber than standard which should improve handling abit aswel.


Last night i was bored and had the urge to see what i can buy for the 335d, ended up buying a carbon roof spoiler and also a set of 15mm eibach spacers for the front(may be too much but i got a good deal on these)



Will post pics when installed.

A quick update - Sent the rear diffuser back as i had a change of heart and am gonna go with the performance diffuser in carbon. Carbon roof spoiler is at my local depot which ill go and collect it 2moro. Front spacers ive sprayed black and should hopefully get them on this week. Also bought some rear LCI lights off hotcoupe which i now have in front of me which i will fit and be coded in the next couple of weeks.

Here is a quick snap of the rear of both D's, Although abit dirty
