Jexus - Official introduction and photoshoot

Hey guys,

Time to throw a thread up since I've finally got some decent photos taken!

Here's my official introduction, my car's a 07 sapphire black 335i with full options.

Mods are:
PROcede v4
BMS DCI
BMW performance exhaust
BC BR coilovers
OEM M3 rims painted in gloss black
m-tech rear bumper
m3 side skirts
gloss black grill
m3 lip spoiler
15% tint
blacked out window trim
after market angel lights
6000k HID
Aero lip

Next possible mod would possibly be a front bumper... thinking of going Mtech or custom 1m front.. still not too sure

But yeah, here are the pics (courtesy of A.L photography, check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/AL.Photogra...ref=ts&fref=ts)

LCI's LCI's LCI's!!

Yeah you should get some LCI tails

1M front is huge $$ really, when you can have a neat M3 front bar for a 1/4 of the price

Those who have black normally wish for something easier to keep clean such as white space grey

thanks mate , yeah I've been thinking about getting a cf diffuser but none of the ones on the market appeal to me, and I prefer the looks of the stock diffuser.

Haha thanks mate. I am pretty satisfied with the way it is atm. I am quite happy with the power at this stage so I won't go down the downpipe and charge pipe path. Although I might be getting FMIC to cool the car down when I take it to the tracks. Other than that, not much more to the exterior. I like it simple and clean

+1 on that, black's awesome but farout the pain in having to clean the car at least once a week.. not to mention the rims as well.. fking multi spokes, such a killer

All a matter of perceptions...

A FMIC is $1kish installed, Pete quoted $3.5K for meth installed, and whilst I'm sure petes installation and tune is great there have been know issues with meth such as fires and blown engines.

If you spend $1.3k on a fmic there is next to no chance of this causing an engine failure or a fire in your engine bay (yes i know this is mainly due to the shit washer bottle type installs that Pete doesn't use) but that's just my take on it and why I haven't gone with meth as of yet.

Although if it was $1k fitted I definately would have done it, as it does have some good merits also thus being cooling and reduction of carbon buildup around the intake valves.

the bms trunk kit was 450ish from memory, i think iirc the op has a proceed (sucker ) but even with install still gotta be under a k i would have thought. the kit pete is offering is a rolls royce solution which is fine but there is nothing wrong with the off the shelf solutions.

A $450 trunk kit AFAIK doesnt include everything (The vishnu kit is $1.1K) and I believe you need the V5 of procede for meth control?
