Blackdragon12's Build Thread [November 12/14 Update]

So I've seen a lot of build threads around, and thought it would be fun to make my own I got my car back at the end of September, and I absolutely love it! It's a 2012 335i Coupe xDrive fully loaded (m-sport package, executive package, navigation package). Sapphire black exterior and dakota black interior.

Anyways, I haven't really modded a car before, so I will be starting small with aesthetic interior/exterior mods, and slowly build my way up to more performance-oriented mods (once I can save up a bit more $$ haha). Here is what I have so far. I know some of the stuff isn't exactly a "mod" but it is stuff I have done to the car/for the car! Enjoy!


COMPLETED:
1) Smoked License Plate Covers (front and back plates) - http://postimg.org/image/uu33a1jd7/
2) Plasti-Dipped Kidney Grills and xDrive Badges Matte Black - http://postimg.org/image/sggk5afkb/ http://postimg.org/image/672d1lozh/ http://postimg.org/image/qprnl0d3x/
3) G1W-C Dashcam + 32GB MicroSD - http://postimg.org/image/a550rxqg9/ http://postimg.org/image/dq0wb5uzt/
4) BMW Rubber Floor Mats - http://postimg.org/image/96b30t0ux/[/size]
5) 17" M5 Black Replica Alloy Wheels + Michelin X-Ice3 Tires - http://postimg.org/image/tqpwu8n0d/ http://postimg.org/image/isj8psnst/
6) Paint Calipers Orange and Hubs Black - http://postimg.org/image/waq522zy5/ http://postimg.org/image/saeec3k3h/
7) Plasti-Dipped 335i Badge Matte Black - http://postimg.org/image/a02a242nx/
8) Black BMW Tire Valve Caps - http://postimg.org/image/yzett4zl5/
9) Carbon Vinyl for Trunk Plastic - http://postimg.org/image/mhowvwwab/
10) Carbon Fiber Performance Trunk Spoiler - Spoiler Arrival: http://postimg.org/gallery/2i69vvsv6/; Before Spoiler: http://postimg.org/image/h8lre4puz/; After Spoiler: http://postimg.org/gallery/25gnwclec/
10.5) Failed attempt at wrapping mirror covers... - http://postimg.org/gallery/x6nrumwe/


ON-GOING (Current working on/waiting for shipment to arrive):
1) Properly wire the G1W-C dashcam to hide wires
2) Paint the G1W-C lens and housing matte black for better stealth
4) Orange Fog Lights Tints
5) 35% Taillight Tints


FUTURE PLANS:
2) Interior LED Lighting
4) Carbon Fiber Side Mirror Covers
5) Plasti Dip Exhaust Tips to Matte Black
6) Tinting (17% or 15% sides, 7% or 5% rear)
7) Custom License Plate
8) DIY Backup Camera
9) Front Lip Spoiler
10) Cyba Black Chrome Quad Exhaust Tips
11) Carbon Fiber Diffuser

Haha I only got the car a month and a bit ago so I didn't get the summer to mod Doing as much as I can now with snow just around the corner!

Speaking of which, did a few things this weekend:
1) Installed winter tires with new rims
2) painted caliper orange (ish...)
3) painted hub black
4) dipped 335i badge matte black (but might redo it, didn't come out too nicely..)


I have attached pictures to the original post! enjoy and let me know what you guys think! Ill post a picture of the car tomorrow with all current mods!

Finally updated post with proper pictures.

Placed my order for tint for taillights and foglights today, will take a few weeks to arrive... in the mean time I am waiting for my valve caps to arrive as well as CF vinyl, which I will practice on things around the house and then do on car! Enjoy and stay tuned!

Let's focus less on black Mr. BlackDragon, and let's get some proper aesthetics and some performance going on! I don't think rubber mats and valve stem caps are a mod either.

If I must help you..

I don't mean to toss you in the hole or anything, but a good budget build could start very easily too. I see you're using plastidip a lot.. That's how I know.

For example:
color matched reflector
Performance spoiler rep
CPS lip
Koni springs
spacers
JB4
downpipe.

Done.

Also, try to avoid using too much black. You don't need to black the emblems or anything. The most I black out would be body of car (which you have), tint, roof, grilles, possibly wheels. Carbon fiber doesn't really count

I know It didn't look as spaced out on my 18" rims w/ RFT summer setup, but I went with a box 17" setup for winter, much safer and was recommended. When spring rolls around, I will look into some coilovers for sure!

I know. I should update this thread to "any changes/additions to my 335i" haha. I have always wanted a blacked out car.. so thats the theme im going for, atleast for now. I might actually dip it something extreme next summer like a metallic orange!

Thanks for the tips! Only thing I'm afraid of is voiding my warranty with any mods I do, which is also a reason I have mainly done asthetic. I will slowly do performance but only once I know 100% from the dealer that it won't void anything!

Agreed. Think I might just do that and save up for some sweet cyba quad tips with CF diffuser!

Update! Dec 13/2014:

Biggest update this round is the new high-kick spoiler! Love the new look! Also a few minor things updated. Next thing planned is either an interior LED change or taillight/fog tints... whenever they arrive in the mail.
