08 335 build

Since i sold my old 335 i have been itching to get another one and rebuild. i really regret selling the car and part of the fun for me is to modify and customize, so....
i got another one

got it from a local member (i think his for sale topic is still active )
i am not going to lie, Travis was fairly accurate on his description, nevertheless car was rougher than i had anticipated when i pick it up.
pretty nasty valve cover gasket and oil filter housing leaks (oil all over the place around the engine) 87,000 miles of carbon deposits (no catch can), coils and spark need it replacement, Cobb tune was not good, had a bunch of ghost codes stored, couple bulbs gone, wheels were straight but finish was gone, no batteries on remote controls, normal wear on driver's seat few dings here and there, etc, etc, etc.

still...car has a well documented service history, low on miles, no waste gate rattle, great factory options, no smoking and my favorite combo...alpine white and coral red. long story short, drover her home 240 miles same day.

i will use this to document progress.

from seller post:
