Swapped the headliner to Anthracite on my fathers 07. We were lucky that we were able to pick up all the parts cheaply from a wrecked one and it does make a big difference. He wasnt sure about it until he drove my M-sport and was sold.

Day 2 of quarantine: I cleaned out the cabin temp sensor. I was also able to really clean the temp screen since the cover was off.

I removed the hoses on my compressor bypass valves. Got some small filters with 1" openings to put on the aftermarket cbv and plugged off the nipples on the intake tubes. I figure I'll do it now in prep for some relocated inlets. Planning on trying the new ARM inlets.

Got around to installing my VRSF 7.5" intercooler, charge pipe, IND painted side reflectors, and smoked side markers. The fitment on the VRSF stuff was garbage, but I made it work. The side markers, and painted side reflectors go a long way for looks IMO I plan on getting rid of the amber bulbs in the side markers as well. The LED replacement bulbs didn't fit, so stealth bulbs it is for those.

Please ignore my filthy bay. I haven't had time to detail it since the weather is just getting better in Chicago.

Took it out for a essential run. Had to do some banking. Came back, and put it in quarantine.

I did it in two days and broke my seat(pull up sharply ON BOTH SIDES AT THE SAME TIME) I also have a devil child that requires a lot of my time.

If you have everything laid out mabey 3-4 hours just take your time and pray you dont struggle with the fuel lines like I did.

Replaced the handle on the passenger's, front side with an aftermarket. It peeled. It's been that way forever, but I saw where you can drill out the handle with a 3/8" drill bit and install the new one using screws on the back end. That's always been my hang up was drilling the old one out but how to secure the new one!?

So, it took maybe 45 min to install and put it all back together. The handle is secure and has no play in it what-so-ever. I was able to use my OEM top cover. So, all I was out was $20.00! 😃

Wow. Hex trim. That's pretty rare on a 335. You are lucky! The trim ring is what is standard on a pre-LCI though.

It's one of my favorite options I have! Also, I didn't realize that until you mentioned it. Looking back at photos of my old E90 330i, I saw it also had the aluminum ring. Definitely a nice touch for the LCI models I think

I'm local to IND, so I went there to pick it up, and they gave me a discount, and a couple trim removal tools for free. They're really great people there, and I don't have an issue paying a bit more for better service

That's pretty insane though. $127 for a $5 part. They would have had to give me 50+ trim tools for it to even be worth it.

A new ignition module is ~$110. If there is a way to just replace the trim or button let us know, my button is starting to fade a bit.
