Joining the BMW Club. E90

I'ts been about 3 weeks since I got my 335i, and I'm loving it. In the short time that it has with me I have blacked out the kidney grills, and installed rear roof spoiler, trunk spoiler and front ones also.
The only thing I'm not liking about it is the chrome rims, but nothing it cant be fixed soon, got some VMR wheels in mind.
Its an automatic, but is not that bad, I want to flash it to the Alpina software.
and get some things coded also.
Seams that a road trip to Seattle to see BIMCoading is due.

Nice! Though I find the wheels somewhat Suspect... Looks good in black though, the Offspring seem to approve.

Black is the only color that those wheels look good on, so they're livable while you save for replacements. Shadowline trim, and LED Angel Eye bulbs, and this car will look sick!

Got my SGM 330i last summer and it had chrome 162s. It actually looked good but silver looks so much better.

Good choice. Mine (E90 Jet Black) is wearing a set of VB3 matte black. If you're not trying to go for the black-on-black look, I suggest the gunmetal finish.

Blacking out the chrome trim around the window trim should also be on your "to do list". Nice pick up.

I was thinking that also, i think it will look very good on gunmetal. Good choice!

I would, if only because you can do it with dip and feel totally free to change your mind and go piano after.
