Narek's 335i Coupe Build Thread

Hey guys,

My name is Narek, on January 3, 2015 I purchased my 2007 335i Coupe. I was searching for a newer car for many many months and didn't rush it. 6 days before my purchase date I went and saw this beauty and I fell in love with it at first sight. Luckily, the previous owner took really good care of the car, he did everything at his local BMW dealership and he has all the records for it also. After seeing this car, I needed to sell my previous car (2001 E46 325i Sedan) so I have enough money to purchase the 335i. I've been driving the car for 3 days and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made

Here are the specs of the car:
2007
Manual
Montego Blue
Sport and Premium package
63,880 miles

(Pictures below of when I first got her)

I'm glad to have joined this forum and I can't wait to meet some amazing people on here. Cheers guys!

Welcome! Gorgeous! Love that Montego 6MT!

I recommend the hasty application of a rear spoiler

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Painted-BMW-...e2297c&vxp=mtr

Also, more aggressive wheels and/or spacers.

Shadowline trim? http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=16166573

Finally, that interior is screaming for an update!

Thank you! I'll take a look at them. Shadowline trim will be one of the first things I do to the car.

Wow my cars twin!

You don't see montego with grey and aluminum that often!
Up until I bought mine I never had seen another, TBH it wasn't my first color choice but I have totally fallen in love with it,

I'll be watching this thread to see idea's for mine, I've done FBO engine mods and this year is going to be cosmetic,
I have M3 side skirts on it and the M3 trunk spoiler and LCI tail lights,

Looking for M-tech front and rear bumpers and possibly shadowline trim too,

That's awesome that I have a twin! It's been 4 days and I'm already in love with the color combo.
I would love to see some pictures of her, I couldn't find a build thread, do you mind linking me somewhere or replying with a picture or two?

Looks great! Even if you were to leave it as is, it would still be one of the best looking cars on the road today.

Thanks! Just to be clear, Shadowlinetrim.com does not sell trim - only vinyl. They list OEM trim prices just for comparison. A 4"x30' roll of Matte vinyl trim from their website is $27. That's plenty to wrap your trim. But be prepared to mess up the first time and start over

Thanks bud, it's staying the way it is for maybe a few weeks, I can't wait to mod.

Try this

or this

Oh and LED interior lights.

Tail/wing and LED interior lights are the cheapest mods with great gain.
