Ky0u's e92 Build

Intended to be a stock DD while I built up my other car. But I suck at "want vs need" and ended up with an e92 335i. Lockdown and poor impulse control means the stock intent has flown out the window.

Decided to try my hand at carbon fiber skinning as an intro to working with CF in general. Purchased a couple rolls of honeycomb weave to add to a few parts on my car








Up Next (still in beginning stages):

I love the wrap. How did the MHD stage 1+ feel? Waitinf on my Thor adapter to arrive so I can flash the MHD, already purchased that and the xHP suite.

Do you recall what part # the S55 coils were? When I'm looking them up I'm seeing 2 part #'s....1 is the same as the N54 part # and the other also correlates to the N55.

Cheers! Make sure you set aside a few days, the resin takes like 8 hours per coat to cure

Thanks! 1+ was enough to violently trigger DSC @ >50% throttle in 1st or 2nd gear with the original 255s. I've since bumped up to 275 rears. Raised the threshold a little but I still can break traction through 2nd easily enough. Always gotta switch to at least DTC only if I'm putting my foot down at all


For the coils, sorry I just realized the confusion, I crossed wires while typing, S55 coils are Delphi, #12138616153. FCP link here

Thanks. That's what I was seeing. They're the same coils that FCP sells as the OEM N54 coils. I'll just get them and be done! https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw...12138616153kt8


I was enamored with the wrap and didn't see your DIY CF trim. I love that stuff too. The weave is different. I like unique!

Thank you! Process definitely took some sanity from me. Still got a few more pieces to knock out, trying to find a cheap set of mirror caps so I don't destroy my oem set

How difficult was the paddle retrofit on a 10 scale? The paddles drove me nuts the 1st few weeks. Slowly getting used to them, but I'd prefer "sane" people flappy paddles instead!

About a 3/10 at most. And that's only because I ran into a small hiccup during 1 of the steps. I chalk up the ease to it being a really well made kit. It's from NRW if you want to look them up.

Install involves splitting the OEM paddle hardware and making use of a part of it, so fitment is perfect when mounting to the steering wheel holes

Few pics from the project:

They have 2 versions, slightly different appearance. Mine was about 150 total (V1 paddles)

Thank you, I still need to polish the high kick and knock out a few more pieces, getting there slowly!

Picked a set of B8s up off a forum user



Huge improvement over the 120k mile factory set up I was still running. I compressed the old rear shock to pull it out from the top mount and it never came back up

Thread update, figured I'd hold off til I got around to adding a few more pieces to my car. She's officially FBO as of this weekend

First was a Fuel-it stage 2 pump. F*ck you to that metal lock ring and double f*ck you to that fuel line clip under the lid of the pump covers.

Next I slapped on a set of VRSF catless pipes. Super F*ck You to those v-clamps. Turned on cold noise reduction right away when I heard how loud the cold start was


Lastly, snagged a VRSF 7" FMIC from a part out for an absolute steal. It had received some pretty good damage but found out it's pretty much just cosemetic. Core was not breached, fully functional as supported by my much improved IATs and solidly consistent boost behaviour. but quadruple mega f*ck you to... nah this one actually went surprisingly smoothly, can't complain

How do you like the paddles?

Also, how is the carbon holding up? I was thinking of doing something similar.

Nice work!

Thanks! Carbon is holding up excellent. I'm really glad I didn't cheap out on the epoxy I chose. Still clear, no cracks, separations or any other sort of issues.

Paddles are also great. Still one of my favorite mods on this car. They get a ton of use since I'm in M mode majority of the time (not even because I hoon everywhere, moreso idk wtf to do with my hands coming from a decade of driving just MT)

Thank you! I think in terms of power building mods, she's pretty much done now good balance of solid power without compromising reliability too much.

Thank you! Yea it's a bit annoying but I'm used to doing car work on jackstands so this was still a huge improvement from the norm for me

After I buy my own house, I'm definitely getting a lift though. My body isn't bouncing back as quickly as it used to from being under the car all day lmao

Tell me about it!! My garage is full of parts, put the car on 4 stands the week before last and foolishly thought I could knock out the list I had in 2, maybe 3 days. After the 2nd night my back felt like I had been put down by Mike Tyson and my entire body was cramping up from my toes to my finger tips, lol. 25 yr old me could've knocked it out in 3 days....the new 42 yr old me needs a few weeks!!! If my cielings were 12 ft instead of 8 I'd have sold a kidney and installed a lift after day 2!!!

I was so beat after the contortions I had to deal with getting the damn DPs on. But man... once everything was set up, tested and put together... that first pull is one of the most rewarding feelings I've had in a long time
