Great car! Is this a BMW Individual interior? Reminds me of my prior home in Germany, where you can even get a manual 335d :P

tbh I'm not too sure if it is the individual interior mate. I think it may be or just very similar. Thanks! Really? I find that hard to believe! I have done a LOT of research before my purchase and have not seen a manual 335D.. If they were in Germany, I would of imported one

There is no such thing as a manual 335d, anywhere.

Please remove the EBC pads, they are absolute junk. Even the standard BMW pads are superior.

I agree with you, EBC Red Stuff has been horrible! I would never get them or recommend them again. I have done some research on the EBC yellow stuff pads which seem to be rated a lot better.. Would you still say these aren't as good as stock?

Are you on BMW sport suspension? I'm guessing no. You should probably drop the car a little. It looks TOO high with that fender gap.

Not yet mate, I will be in the coming months. I agree could do with lowering, maybe just the rear.. My wrap is my priority atm, just paid a lot of money on body panels too! Don't want to go crazy all at once, but slowly and surely I will do most mods!

I just hope the wrap goes to plan, a lot of money wasted if it doesn't!

yeah, I guess EBC gets mixed reviews depending on the car. My last car was about the same weight as your MCS, a bit more and the EBC pads were great. Maybe they use the same formula and whats good for a 3200-3300 lb car is not so good for a 3800-4000 lb car

Thanks a lot
I swapped out my entire suspension bits for M3 parts and even added Megan Racing toe arms to my car. In total, 20 pieces.

What exactly are you looking to change?

Money well spent? Thrilled with the results?

Easily at least $3,000. I'm also on KW V3s and the way it handles after the M3 bits is just truly insane.

Night and day.

Would do it all over again without a doubt.

I'm sure this has probably been covered, but figured I'd ask since this is an active topic. Have you guys noticed an appreciable reduction in fuel economy with the JBD? Have been considering one for a long time, but am pretty happy with the mileage I get currently and it's not like it's lacking for power stock .
