Mod Diary of my F30 335i

Greetings from Singapore, my virgin post!

Here's what I've done for my ride so far, awaiting the M Sports kit, M Performance cf spoiler + handbrake lever, and Brembo GT in the meantime.

Basically did the usual window tinting and extra tint on the headlamps and black out on the side blades. Swapped the black grills in as well with //M colors.

Had the cf mirrors installed too tho the contrast is minimal due to the dark havana brown.

Using 19" BC custom Forged wheels with PSS tires.



Tint for the rear lamps too and M Performance Exhaust



Basically have the M Performance panels, steering and cf gear shift lever, awaiting the delivery of the cf handbrake lever and M pedals as well. Pity the foot rest wun be avail for RHD till they settled all the backlog for LHD first.

I hope he can upload a video for you...

But in all honesty, the M Perf. Exhaust is worth the money. I really do like it. It sounds perfect and you can very easily hear it in the cabin.

To the OP, the very first pic looks AWESOME! WOW! Good job so far.

Wheel spec is F 8.5 ET 30, R 9.0 ET 40

The tint is part of my darkout theme but affects the HID beam throw, kinda contemplating to remove it now hahahaha cant c my DRLs well

U can try ordering it from Sg, once I get it installed, I'll post the pics here. Btw my shop was advising that ETA is 6-8 weeks from my order so u might wanna do it earlier if u cant wait much

I like the bass part, subtle but no drone. Only thing is its quite soft and u gotta engage Sports mode to really feel it well, esp switching to mt mode using paddle shifters.

I'm waiting for my DP to be ready and do a retune, hope to get more sound out. If u wan sound, the M exhaust aint for u, you're better off with a solid catback or turbo back

Pretty sure with the M Performance exhaust there is no longer the flap in the right hand exhaust outlet.

Golf tee mod would be moot.

It does have it, and supposedly when you do the gold tee mod it sounds redonkulous.
