TC's 335i

Hey Gents,

So I had been eagerly waiting for a BMW for about a year or so after i finally had enough mula saved and was close
to getting off my P Plates, the final search begun.

Originally i had my eyes on a black 335i over in WA but just found it way to difficult to get my ass over there and back with a 1.5tonne girl by my side, so that fell through.

Scrolling through CarPoint and i found a silver one only about 15minutes away from my house, so i headed off to the dealer to have a look at this particular 335 which i happened to fall in love with, as it was in such great condition and a great colour combo with very low ks.

The next week it was mine...

M-Sport
2008
AT
35,000ks






MODS:
BMR AE's
BMW Performance rear spoiler
JB4
LCI Tail lights
AR Catless DP's
CanFlap exhaust mod
ER Charge Pipe
Forge DV's
BMW Performance grills
Gloss black roof


So within just a few weeks i sent the car in to get some BMR AE's, really happy with the outcome! Definitely worth it compared to LUX imo
First mod, BM



Next in line was a BMW Performance Spoiler and JB4

After Stuart from BMR had installed and explained how to use the JB4 it was time to go for a spin.

HOLLLYYY CRAAAP..... The difference from stock is incredible, the car feels so much faster and it really shoves you deeeeeeper and deeeeeeper into the seat.

I have to be careful though as the feeling is so much more addicting than stock that i have to pay more attention to what speed screaming towards.

Pros- The feeling!!! The power, price, quick install and the fuel economy is the same if not better (providing you can control your temptation to mash the pedal to the floor)

Cons- .....







A few more weeks had passed while enjoying the tune and it was time for some AR Catless downpipes! Immediate thoughts were... wow i can finally here the turbos! oh and a nice throatier exhaust sound :thump:



I took me a while but finally got around to the much needed "LCI Update"
Personally one of the best visual mods you can do to the e92's!



I couldn't help myself and grabbed some BMW Performance Grilles and some OEM Black mirror caps



Next up was a gloss black roof by Carbon Demon!
I was hesitant to do so at first however now that it has been finished i'm a happy chappy :thump:





NEXXXXT was the BMW Performance Exhaust, my god i love it. Not the tips so much, so some CYBA 4.0 dry carbon tips shall go on.



Alrighty!!

So last night i was just having a look around the forum and spotted some E92 M3 seats for sale, i quickly snapped them up and got them for a decent price!

They are Fox Red, Novillo leather.











Install was reasonably straight forward and pretty easy!

I must say the bolstering of the M3 seats and the Novillo leather is very nice, i really love the colour!

Cheers,
Tom

Nice ride mate! I look forward to see the transformation!! I would suggest a tune as the first step - the biggest bang for buck ever on the 335i. You probably can't go wrong with any of those tunes mentioned.
