I saw from BMW that there is oem carbon fibre interior trim, does anyone do that mod? And how much is that from the BMW?

And there is aftermarket carbon fibre wing mirror "cover", wondering if there is any aftermarket real carbon fibre wing mirror, not cover, on the market?

I have found a carbon fibre rear diffuser and front grill already.
These mods affect the choice of my first BMW

Regardless of performance, exterior, lighting etc, assuming it's a 335i, my definitive list would be:

1. Tune. Jb4/Cobb.
2. Proper Tyres. Michelin PSS if you like.
3. White Angel Eyes
4. Coilovers

These 4 mods make the biggest difference to the car... tune absolutely transforms the car... proper tyres allow you to get the power to the ground... white angel eyes look great and quality coilovers give a much improved ride to the craptastic stock suspension.

IMO all other mods pale in comparison to the four above which I really feel are vital to achieving a very nice car that puts a smile on your face and creates an enjoyable drive. Having the above 4 done should really be the priority before spending money on blingy carbon bits!

i'm a cheap ass Stu i just wrap it... you have me thinking about coilovers now... add the PE to the list it really makes the 335i a lot more fun.

regarding COBB S1, 401 maps are shiit compared to 402.. so shiit i uninstalled it as i was sick of it... add the cooler and now on 402 FMIC maps Cobb has never been better. I was very close to selling my COBB and getting a JB4
