My F30

Hello everyone,

First of all, I would like to thank M3post and every member here, I didn't know much about BMW until my friend introduced this awesome website to me few months ago. I spend at least 30 mins to 1 hour browsing, checking out posts, comments and photos here everyday before i go to bed.

3 weeks ago, I became a BMW owner, my first BMW ever

Here is my mod list:

Carbon fiber side mirror cover
Window tinted
Black front kidney grill (Special thanks to 1.fresh.f30.335, I followed his DIY instructions step by step and only took like 20 mins.)
19" ADV.1 5.0 with Advan AD08
KW V2 coilovers

Looks nice, how you like the ride on the KW's? Is your drop at its highest setting? Seems like that's what I am seeing on the KW's...a little to low for some cause you can't raise it up any. Still looks nice though.

Congrats man, nice 335i. Welcome to the BMW owner's club.

Personally I'm not sold on the KWs either. They look a little too dumped in the rear. If you're happy with them though, that's the main thing.

Thank you! I installed the KW's 2 days ago and with less than 200 miles only, but so far they feel really good. It's not at its highest setting, the rear only has 15mm left to drop, can't drop it any lower, I will raise it up maybe 10mm next week.

I love the CF covers, I've been thinking about getting them - could you post more pics?

did you dealer purchase or get them somewhere else cheaper and install yourself? I want to see closer up pics so I can see if it's "noticeable" that they are caps and not real...thx!

Sure, I will take some close up pic this weekend. I bought them online and I like them.
