I'm glad you have a new set of wheels! The current ones are the best out of the three.

Question:
You've spent a grip on your car, but I was wondering if you ever considered an M3 before getting that 335i? Did you know you were going to mod away when you got the car?

Forgive me if I've missed some posts, I haven't re-visited your thread for a long time.

Took me almost an hour staring at the new shoes after installation before driving off. Could not believe what I did........ those red pinstripes.......

Gratitude

Thank you all for the compliments. Really appreciate it.

The new wheels were indeed a gamble......

As for the logic of modding a 335 versus getting an M3, the main crux was the price differences of both cars in Singapore. As some of you may know, Singapore has a levy on automobiles so heavy it is stifling to own a car here. An e92 335 from authorised BMW dealer here costs S$240-250K (or US$170K-177K at FX 1.41), while an e92 M3 cost around S$340K (US$241K). Price differential is huge. Mod-ability of both cars are obvious. And I know I would have spent some money on the M3 as well, had I gotten it......

Perhaps in time to come, I will switch to either an M3, a C2S or a RS5 depending on pricing variables. The M is the pedigree car to own, but the C2S and the RS5 have their appeals as well.....

As for the cornering lights, I had PIAA H499 LED lights installed to replace the stock bulbs.

hey ken, bud i need some help, do you know any details of how u had your oil pressure sensor installed? I know we've talked way back about this but I'm still lacking some info. I've bought these guages and had them for over a year not on the car because the shop needs suggestion of how to install it. The connections dont match or something of that sort. Did you use any additional peice to connect the defi oil press sensor to the car. And what did you connect it to....thanks a lot ken!
