Daily Driver in the Pacific NW. Vermillion Red 335

Hey guys, new to the forums but been around BMW's for quite some time. I do a lot of the performance build/racecar/track prep management for AR Auto Service in Portland Oregon so we see all manners of BMW's come through from mild to wild. I spend 90% of my time interfacing with clients and planning builds but I've done all the work on this car with the exception of the tune.

My car is a 2011 335i Sedan in Vermillion Red Metallic. Black interior. Sport package, manual, and that's about it. It has been modified to still be comfortable and useable every day but still perform well and hit the occasional track day when my S2000 isn't ready. Modifications listed below, I'll post more photos as I round them up.

Interior
-ZHP Shift Knob

Exterior
-MSport Bumpers and side skits
-MTC Designs Carbon Front Lip
-Trunk Lip spoiler colormatched to car
-OEM Black Kidney Grills

Suspension
-MCS Double Adjustable dampers with remote reservoirs/dry breaks
-Swift Coilover Springs with thrust washers
-Ground Control Camber plates
-Ground Control Rear Height Adjusters and heavy duty rear shock mounts
-Full M3 control arm conversion front and rear
-SPL rear Toe links with eccentric lockout
-H&R front sway bar
-Cornerbalanced and aligned to sport street/mild track specifications

Drivetrain
-CDV delete
-ETS 5inch intercooler
-ETS charge piping
-AFE Intake
-Burger Tuning Catch Can
-OEM exhaust valve permanently open
-Tuned via MHD flash by Wedge Performance, makes 350/440 on dynojet on pump 92

Wheels/Tires/Brakes
-Volk ZE40 18x9.5 +20 Diamond Dark Gunmetal with Continental Extremecontact Sport Tires
-Rays center caps and valve stems
-Stoptech Sport Pads, Stoptech Rotors and Stoptech Stainless Lines.

I've specifically kept this car as quiet and stealthy as possible since I drive it all the time and frankly the droning catless exhausts on most 335s gets old. Future plans include an e85 or race gas tune, some sort of carbon rear diffuser to complement the front lip, and a diffsonline wavetrac diff. Way down the road I may consider an upgraded stock frame turbo and fueling upgrades but for now this is just about perfect for my needs.

I did. With the exception of the tune I've done all the work on the car myself. It helps that we install MCS all the time as I think we are their largest dealer in the NW

Your car looks amazing!! I like the yellow/halogen angel eyes on your car!

I have catless downpipes and PE Mod exhaust on my E92 and I have zero drone, I do mostly highway driving. I would get the downpipes to complete the FBO, but that's just me
