I plan on running square 235/35 Pirellis so it sounds like a 12mm spacer will be perfect for my rears since my tires will be narrower than yours.
It will look great!! It was a hard decision between the 225m's and 513m's. In the end, I just think silver wheels look better than gunmetal wheels on Lemans Blue.

Also the main reason I went with OEM spec tire sizes was because the MPSS's run a bit wider. If I had gone with Bridgestone Pole Position S04's, I would have gone one size wider.

Please post pictures when you have them on. Cheers.

Hey Stan, I remember we were looking for our unicorns at the same time.

Looks like your patience paid off! Hope to see your wagon in person sometime.

I do believe so though I must admit I haven't made it out to one yet.

Not sure if Stanley's still around here but he sold his unicorn to EAG back in 2018. They had it listed for $40k and I'm not sure what become of it after that.

Ever think about selling it? I have two boys now and could use the extra space. Would you be interested in an e90 335i (lemans blue, double hump, N55) I would trade you, plus cash if you are interested.

I have the exact same car 2011 335i fully loaded M-sport, but in space gray with 65k on the clock. Lots of my friends like how practical the N55 is for a daily driver. With that being said, how many miles on yours & what condition is it in overall exterior / interior... ? Also, how much would you like for it... ?

175k miles, Both exterior and interior are in good shape. The headlights need to be restored and the car maybe buffed.

I have done a ton in maintenance: rod bearings, entire cooling system, new pads and rotors in the last 3 weeks, Mfactory LSD, all new bushings, M3 control arms, Wagner FMIC, Cobb charge pipe. Essentially FBO. not sure if I could sell right now just to sell it. Would want an E91 or turn to the dark side and get a Toyota SUV.

Nice man. Mine is still a baby at 65k. But that's mainly because Covid & remote working happened. LOL Was the M-factory LSD a worthy upgrade & did it make an improvement with traction... ?

I would go with quaife or wavetrac next time around.The M-Factory diff is really clunky. It just makes a lot of sound when you load and unload it in parking lots or slow turns. It does make a difference and if I were to do only one modification to this platform (e90 335i or 328i) it would be a LSD. I also had the "e-diff" coded off. The car is a lot of fun in the rain and on the track now.
