The 335I looks awesome when lowered, but as brgmatthew advised the chances are very high on ripping your fenders. I ripped mine.

Especially when parking each time and with some speed bumps which are unusually high the underside of the bumpers bruise easily too & tear off as quickly. Once that is done, the cost to get OEM new & re-paint can be $1500 + easily.
