My e92 (finished product)

2008 335i coupe
Montego Blue/Black
ESS Stage 2
AA downpipes
AA Race Intercooler
BMS Intake
JG Mods M-tec front
Shadownline trim (wrap)
M sport OEM black grills
19" Vossen CV3
Hardwired V1 with custom bracket
Laser Interceptor Laser Jammer

Still thinking about suspension mods. I know most of you guys are going to tell me to drop it. I'd love the car to be a bit stiffer and sway less in the corners, but I'm moving to San Diego in a week (permanently) and the roads there suck. Lots of pot holes, dips, inclines, steep driveways, etc. I'm already paranoid about scraping my car with stock height and bending my 19's.

Other then suspension upgrades (which I am still on the fence about) any suggestions?

-A CSL trunk may be in the works.

-I've thought about blacking out the side marker and the clear portion of the taillights. I'm not a fan of all black taillights, but I think smoking the clear portion and maybe adding a single black stripe (AMG style) may look good.

-Any headlight upgrades available?

-I like the 19" Vossen. I think 20's look too big and 19's look to small, but I KNEW I'd bend 20's. With 19's, I'm hoping the extra tire protection keeps me out of the rim repair shop.

-Other then maybe a charge pipe, I'm done with mods. Meth? No way. Too much can go wrong. Exhaust? Maybe. If I got a screaming deal on a used exhaust system, I'd consider it, but I'm happy with my current sound (not too loud = not too much attention from 5-0).

- Not a fan of the 335is bumper. I like the 335i coupe solid rear bumper better.

Doesn't Vossen have like a warranty if you bend your rims? I've hit plenty of pot holes in LA just this last one (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=857613) hurt me real bad..come on dude! You got a long way to go before you can say you're finished!!!

I knew you guys were gonna say that.

But let me tell ya, after years of modding cars, I'm done going balls to the wall.

From here on out, I'm buying a nice stock car and adding a few easy mods to make it mine.

Maybe I'm getting old (29)?

My suggestions:

-Front Lip
-CSL Trunk
-Make the wheels darker to match the trim around the car.

other than that I think it looks great

I've got almost the same car and i'm thinking about getting that same bumper. How was the fit on it? I'd drop it just a bit. You aren't any more likely to bend a wheel with a lowered car and a couple scrapes on the bottom won't hurt anything. I'm thinking of just lowering mine in a bit and maybe getting some spacers to even out the gaps. Did you wrap the trim yourself?

I would say lower her just a bit at least in the front. but of course its your car, do as you see fit for you, not everyone else.

Where'd you buy your lift kit from? I've been searching for a good deal but can't seem to find any.

How out a CPs front lip? Also, remove fog lights and replace with IS air ducts for more cooling. 👍
