***Drama's first BIMMER***

NOOB WARNING! not joined a forum since my corsa c days but after a few years and a brilliant new car ive decided to show it off.

recently traded in my mk5 golf gti (below)




for an 08 335i e92 coupe. black sapphire metallic.

im in love. its brilliant. and for the price and age of the car it feels brand new!

here it is. please excuse the rubbish picture quality.









few minor mods planned:

my private plate which you can see on the golf is going on as soon as the dvla get their arses in gear.

new h8 6000k bulbs for the angel eyes because the standard bulbs are yellow! big no no!!

debadge the rear and basically get the car polished up and like glass!

thinking of some 313 alloys from the later models but its all cash!

thanks in advance!

313's will be the best thing for this car but they are

your exhausts seem to stick out abit more than some others look. although i have found with some 335d and i. some of them exhaust sits flush, some it comes out just abit and some they are out a couple of inches

it is a beauty!

Nice to see you come over to our side.

Lovely car mate.

Best advice i can give you is make a huge list of everything you want to do, and categorise them into cosmetic, handling, performance etc and then you can hopefully get a plan of where you want to head.

But enjoy the car for now!

Congrats.

I went to see this motor on my search for a 335i. Think the guy had an RRS if I'm not mistaken.

Look forward to the mods.

first proper clean

finally got a clear day and managed to valet and clay bar the car properly. found two marks on the car, one of which a small scuff on the front lower bumper and the rear bumper is slightly scratched. but all in all very happy!!

still need to paint clean, polish, wax and seal the wheels.

i know im being biased but shit a brick it looks very sexy










few minor things to address. ive ordered new centre caps and msport badges for the wheels as you can see here the current ones are missing or damaged.



and dont you just love it when the car comes back from a ''valet'' but upon further inspection a brand new clay bar ends up like this

one side

other side


ignore my christmas booze

anyway! happy christmas to all!!
