2009 328i - MB, CF, BBS and Slow *Updated AGAIN 3/9/14 - page 3* PICS

Just wanted to share a few updates to my car since last posting. I got lost near some near areas this weekend and took a few photos.

Flames, compliments, suggestions and questions all welcomed. I know some of the CF parts might get that

BTW, it's a 2009 328i with BMW Sports Package painted in the beautiful Montego Blue

Mod list to date:

M Front Lip
M-Tech Rear Bumper
Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser
Carbon Fiber Rear Splitters
Carbon Fiber Kerscher Splitter
M Style Rear Spoiler/Lip
M Shifter and Pedal Set
Megan Carbon Fiber Roof Lip
Blacked Out Kidney
M3 Side Skirts
M3 Front Upper/Lower Control Arms (-1.75)
M3 Rear Upper/Lower Control Arms (-1.9)
H&R Sport Springs
H&R Wheel Spacers
Eibach Front/Rear Anti Sway Bars
Dinan Front Upper Strut Bar
Dinan Catback Exhaust
Dinan Intake
BBS CH-R Black Edition 19x18.5/19x9.5
Michelin Pilot Sport 235/265
Side Reflector Delete
Smoked Sidemarkers
StopTech cross Drilled/Slotted Rotors
StopTech Stainless Brake Lines/Fluid
Hawk HPS Brake Pads
VIS Carbon Fiber Hood
RPI Intake Scoops
Euro Rear Fog Lights
HID 8K Headlights/Yellow Fog Bulb

I hope these pictures come out decent quality and resolution, hot linking from my social media accounts.





























Yes, I drive like an idiot and busted the front splitter only after 16 hours of ownership. New one is sitting in my living room ready to install.

If there are any questions on parts, etc pleases ask away. I'm a BMW noob so I will do my best to answer. Thanks for looking!

Not a fan of the exhaust tips or the yellow fog laminx. Looks JDM as f$#% to me with those 2 parts. Otherwise, looks great...apart from your driving killing a spliter. lol

Join the club, brother. Figured I'll hold off until I feel like dropping down on a E92 M3. TBH, I was scared away from the 335.

Your car looks great! Have you considered wrapping the roof in gloss black?

Thanks man. I've debated it a few times. I wanted to do a CF wrap, but the wraps just aren't my taste in context with the gloss/'real' carbon fiber.

Not entirely sure. That, along with a CSL are both up in the air.

OEM cf roof is the only way to go. Roughly 3500 in parts plus labor.

Exactly and exactly, lol. Just seems overkill for a 328i. But god, so gorgeous.

Lip was about $300~ from **********s. Not sure of the rules, but URL http://www.**********s.com/OEM-BMW-M...3-3-Series.htm Mod. Bar.Gains

Had to get it paint matched locally. Makes such a huge different in the front end IMHO.

Oops, sorry, UNDER the lip that's the Kerscher style CF Lip/splitter. It's available at the above URL and there is also a vendor here that supplies them, too. If you Google that term/search forum you should pop up the guy on here. I forgot his username.

Car is looking clean, but the only thing i would change (since we have the same car) is painting the hood and instead of the m3 spoiler i would do the high performance spoiler which has a wayy higher kick. Just my 2 cents, but the car looks excellent! Love the CF accents.

N52 is bullet proof, yes. N54 is just like any other high strung turbo motor. Takes tender loving care to kick ass. Don't respect it, it'll piss you off every chance it gets.

After I become more 'familiar' with everything I kind of kicked myself in the ass, but on the same token, my desire was always reliability over speed or anything else while picking a BMW.

I just tell myself it's the stepping stone to the M3 to help me sleep at nights.

But then I see guys with 450hp 335's at meets with bolt-ons, tunes and up boost and I feel like a little girl.
