2007 335 Coupe  [0.00]
Thanks to all for the compliments, bros.

Fact is, the shipment of my car was delayed for 2 months - hence I had a long lead time in planning my mods. I will be taking few more shots this weekend, pending the next few mods - blackout window trims, blackout kidney grilles and installation of the Vorsteiner spoiler.

OC 335i & ///AFRO - unfortunately I have yet to record a sound clip of the SS exhaust. It has a humming drone at idling RPMs and gets slightly more metallic at higher revs. If not for legality issues here, I would have gotten the Eisenmann Quads with cat removed. Only SS, Remus, Sebring, ACS, and few other brands are legal here. Illegal exhaust mods carry heavy punitive fines over here.

OC 335i - I painted the diffuser matt charcoal. Some extensive works have been done to elongate the diffuser - it could only have fitted with the Hamann tips. The other exhaust tips would be spaced either too near or too far apart between the left and right pairs of tips. The other alternative is to adjust the spacing between the tips - if indeed possible - to fit the rear diffuser. Note that I have installed the quads and cut my rear valance before the diffuser arrived - that was one big mistake !!! Should have reversed that order.

cipher5 - I doubt the BBK will clear the stock rims.

jmramos44 - I have few shots of the rear sways installed, but they were all under-exposed.

OC 335i & cyba - Car ownership in Singapore is expensive. The government imposes a high tax regime on cars, and attempts to keep cars within a 10-year lifespan. The end result is fast adoption of new models with a high price tag. The typical 335i coupe costs S$240K (or about US$160K) from the authorised dealer, and S$210K (US$140K) from parallel importers. The E93 335 costs S$265K (US$176K) from authorised dealer and S$240 from parallel importer. Crazy prices. To put it into perspectives, the Maserati Gran Turismo is selling for S$420K (US$280K) and the F599 GTB Fiorano costs S$1.05m (US$700K) here.

No prizes for guessing who are the rich coffers here with all the taxes squeezed......

Thanks for the lengthy response, I appreciate all your details. It looks like the Hamann Diffuser will require quite a bit of work to work with either a Bastuck or Eisenmann exhaust then. DAMN.

I thought Supersprint made the Hamann Exhaust? I wonder if Eisenmann or Bastuck quads would fit.

Yep. If you wanna install the diffuser, it will be wiser to buy the diffuser first and then install either quads system to fit the diffuser. You definitely do not wanna cut the rear valance at the wrong points.

I had the same impression that Hamann and Supersprint quads came from the same manufacturer. However, the muffler boxes look so different for the E92 model. The Hamann muffler box looks like a box, and is so much shorter in length.

looks amazing. I wish you had better and more clear pics of the car. The pics seem to be very dim. All the money you spent really shows well. Spend some more and hire a professional photographer.

Thanks. I am juggling with my new camera (Sony Cybershot H9) and its semi-SLR functions. Will certainly improve on the shots, and will post more shots on the ride once my other mods are in. Cheers.

Went to black-out my window trims over the weekend......




And while I was there, the mod virus got better of me. Tinted the front headlights and fogs light charcoal shade......



And the side indicators darker charcoal shade ......



As well as the clear portion of the tail-lights......



Rear shot......



And my ride now looks kinda different......

I thought it is the lights from the dusk playing around with my lens, and I tried various locations - yes, the sparkling graphite and the light did play tricks on the lens.......

The detailing shop used this vinyl with the brand Oracal on my window trim. I have highlighted in the Exterior section too.

As for the headlights, I was using LaminX from **********s, which carried a bluish tint. I switched to the current charcoal tint with this vinyl from Oracal.
