Some of the Mods I've Done to my 2009 335d

I bought the car last August with only 3,800 kms on it and totally love it. I took some pics of what I've done so far but can't wait to put on my new wheels and tires on April 14th!

Here are the pics:



Carbon Fiber Grille:




Dark Charcoal Side Marker:




Dark Charcoal Reflector:




Light Charcoal Tails:




Matte Black Trim:




Matte Black Badge

Where did you get the 335d emblem?

Is your reflector a film? It looks orange still. I want to go with the clear ones to match my side marker.

Looks like you have been pretty busy, your car is looking good. I will be up there next weekend. Any get togethers?

Thanks guys. I got the 335d badge for $20 flat and put it on myself from bimmian.com

The reflector is a film, dark charcoal and looks way darker than before.

I like all of the small changes.

It looks like your badge is a bit off, should be more to the left.

the correct position is the one on the white BMW posted above. If you bought the car used, maybe previous owner debadge it and dealer had to put it back. Or maybe Canadian BMWs come with different badge.Or... the car was in accident? Position of mine is the same as on the white.

Maybe they moved them between years?

My 09 is like the white i.

Still looks good though, G, especially on Tasman Green.

Your wheels match up with your paint color nicely.

You have a good eye...lol. It's the main reason I went with the "Diamond Black" colour.

Thanks.

The splitters look really good! Show us some side profile shots of the rear spoiler! Which model is it?

I think you made excellent choices.

Thanks dude. I went with the M-tech style rear spoiler.

I'll take some pics tomorrow.

John, those wheels look great! The splitters and spoiler are very nice. I'd still love to see a nice full-width lip for the standard front clip, but at least the splitters make for a nice aggressive look.

Cheers
Duey
