FBO WAGONS (think wagons are boring? think again…)

Hello gents,

I'm starting this thread mainly as an introduction to my 335i FBO wagon (E91). Other FBO wagons are welcome as well since it would be great to gather them all in one thread.

To clarify for the ones who aint familiar with the term FBO: it's and abbreviation for 'full bolt on' and is normally used to describe the standard performance upgrades that adds the most significant power.
In this thread it's defined as FMIC+DPs+Intake+Tune. That's the minimum amount of performance mods needed to post up your wagon in this thread.


OB's E91 335i N54
Pretty much a fully loaded AW N54 -07 from factory, doesn't have active cruise control but the other goodies (full Msport, keyless go/entry, panoramic roof, navi pro and such) are all there.
Bought the car in 2012 when it was bone stock, I would say it defined the word boring at that time, then things changed.

Winter mode
A quick pic of my winter setup from last year, shot with my iPhone in bad light - will get some quality shots this winter.


Got tired of the black theme and went back to OEM+ during 2014

The engine wasn't boring at all, but the looks of the car the day I got it - definitely! E91's are popular in Sweden so I had seen several with nice cosmetic upgrades that made me think mine looked a bit dull. Got my COBB AP installed within a week then the mod bug got me good. And all these forums with amazing cars doesn't help

Cheers. I'm thinking about changing the wheels already.. Fitted the winter wheels this week and they are 18" OEM 193m in silver - looks clean. See what you think when I get a few pics up with the winter setup
