blackwagon08's Intro & Build Thread

Hello forum people.

Thought i'd start a build thread, but first a little about me, the car, and the plans for it.

My name is Anthony, and i am from Newcastle.

I managed to purchase a 2008 E91 335i M sport. Some of you may be familiar with the car, previously owned by donR. I was not looking for this type of car originally, but i am happy with it, and will give me something to tinker with.

Plans for the car include bumping the power level up, and OEM+ type of mods inside and out. This car is not a daily driver, and just a weekend vehicle. Hope to do most of the work myself or pay mates with beer, and catch up with some 335i owners near by.

Cheers, Ant.

So first mod was some new wheels. Genuine BMW 313 19's. Not everyones cup of tea, but i have always liked them. When a set popped up for sale, with no buckles, scratches or rash, i snapped them up especially with new rubber on them too.

Met up with a few BMW owners from Newcastle today, and what a top bunch of blokes. Good opportunity to meet fellow enthusiasts. A big thankyou to Shane (DR-JEKL) for inviting me along.

Thanks mate. Iíll have a look for your DIY before I do the install, so I get a bit of an idea of what tools I need.

Regards, Anthony.

Hi Anthony, good to see you're enjoying the car and looks much better with the new wheels. Was always a favorite of mine.

Look forward to seeing the future updates!
