E92 335I Build Thread

Hello everyone!

I picked up a e90 325i about 4 months back. I also sold my manual E46 330i M-tech 1 sedan around the same time. Recently I came up on a 2007 335i coupe with 113k. I was able to purchase the vehicle for under $3,000.

Since I am limited on space, I am going to be selling the e90 and keeping the E92 and doing a little "Build on it". I've always wanted an E92 M3 (possibly in the future still) but I love the power of the N54.



I will break down some of my parts and repairs on this thread...

Bought the car with a slight Misfire and a wrap job that ruined 80% of the paint. The vehicle had a lemon title due to tires? So it was a rough start.

Anyways, I will be converting a lot of the parts over the M3 style. I already had the front bumper OEM, so I figured I would continue with my journey.

I have spent countless hours peeling and scrapping the adhesive off in preparation for paint. Here are some of the "Before and after" photos.

I do paint and body on the side and my friend(s) own shops so I am very lucky. I do not care if this is not your "thing" because I have always wanted to do it.

Part's Ordered / Purchased / waiting:

OEM M220 Forged M3 Wheels (Fit beautifully)
M3 E92 Conversion Fenders
E92 M3 Mirror parts (Everything but the caps)
High Kick spoiler

Need to order:

M3 style rear bumper w/ dual cutouts
M3 Style side skirts
Exhaust Tips (Unsure so far)
Power Dome

Picked these up from a friend last night. He's had them laying around for years.

Clue to what is coming next week. I am waiting on a few more packages today.

I know.... Now that I've been looking, $1,800 was the lowest I found!


Also,

Special delivery! These came in from everyone's favorite vendor!

Hopefully they are both in the second box.... For some reason they had to come from separate warehouses.

Nice, I'm headed out of the country for a little while, but hopefully when I get back I can start on a few of my projects too! Getting ready to put all the cars in storage tomorrow. Never got a chance to find out how the seats turned out and what you learned, still a priority in my wagon although some m3 seats may be worth holding out for

My friend who bought my E46 had some mint black seats. I finished one seat, but still have to finish the other. The E90 is going up for sale this week. Just spent close to $700 getting the AC fixed (Only thing I do not really mess with).

Ill post up some final completed photos! Good luck overseas! You can watch my progress!

I guess once you get the exterior to look like an M3, the interior is next ?

I'm debating what I want to do on the inside. I passed up a mint M3 interior, but I think I may go aftermarket and just throw a bolt in cage in the rear. We will see.

Thank you!

Rear bumper is on it's way! Just need skirts and power dome. Half of the mirrors should be here this week as well. I'm getting excited to paint

Left side came in today. Sorry for the shitty photo's. It's dark in my garage.

Also both fenders came in. Had some issues that I am resolving. Still on track! Need to order the hood bulge now!

Test fit the drivers side today. With only 1 screw in, it actually fit quite well. Not that easy to take off without taking the wheel off haha. Bumper is going to be here tomorrow

There is a set here for $500 if you are interested still. One needs a little repair (front and not too bad).

Another shot of the front fenders.

Rear bumper came in as well I am waiting on the side skirts to arrive. I am debating between two different exhaust tips. Can anyone help me decide? I'm leaning towards the dual walled rather than the baffled.



Rear bumper



Exhaust tip options

Well skirts are in. Make everything look much more Bad ass... Took off the mirrors to prep for paint. Back to the elephant ears.

HOPEFULLY going to start sanding her down in a week or so. I should have the exhaust and bumper test fit sometime this week as well. So excited.

Looking good so far. Your pics of the exhaust options aren't loading, though.

Sorry about that, accidentally edited it.

So I am debating between these two tip options. One is dual rolled (Which I like alot) the other has some baffling. Since I am doing a muffler delete w/ catless downpipes, I just have to figure out how the rear end is going to look.

(These are cheap stainless tips)

I wanted to go 4", but it looked too large. I think quad 3.5" is perfect.



Added bonus, before and after for the skirts. Night and day difference. It's also crazy how much the mirrors add to the presence now that they are off.
