New Here - 2014 335i BSM M-Sport Slow Build Thread

I bought the car in mid 2015. I've been lurking around here since and figured I'd finally post my car. It's a 2014 335i XDrive fully loaded with almost every option. I come from the world of Honda's and have built a few over the last 15 years. This is quite the change up for me! I travel A TON for work doing sound for concerts and tours, so I've only put about 5k miles on it since I purchased it. Needless to say it's going to be a pretty slow going build.

Here's some pics from the day I brought it home.



Winter boots.




Progress.









Dyno.




New Wheels.



Current mods:

Performance:
Bootmod3
BMS Intake
ER catless downpipe
ER charge pipes
Wagner Evo 2 Competition Intercooler
AWE catback exhaust

Exterior:
M Performance carbon fiber spoiler
M Performance side blades
M Performance side decals
M Performance rear diffuser
IND painted front reflectors

Interior:
M Performance carbon fiber shifter
M Performance pedals

Wheels, Brakes, Suspension:
BMW 763M (Just purchased)
Breyton Race GTS 19x8.5" wheels
BMW 403M
Dinan Springs
Dinan Shockware
(DHP from factory)

Future mods:

Performance:
EOS Intake Manifold
Aquamist Methanol Injection system
SpeedTech Turbo Upgrade

Looks:
M Performance front splitter
Carbon fiber mirror caps
Carbon fiber kidney grills

Any and all suggestions for my build would be great! Thanks!

I still have a 1997 500whp d16 del Sol and just sold my road/auto x 2001 Integra GSR. I have also had an 89 CRX for quite some time.

In BMW news, I dropped my ER downpipe off today to be ceramic coated and ordered ER charge pipes!

Thanks!

I forgot about tint. That's actually one of the next things I'm looking to do. I know very little about it and need to do some research. I've actually never had tinted windows before.

Goodies came back from ceramic coating! Looks like they did a pretty damn good job. Hopefully it holds up!

DP and CP get installed tomorrow. Can't wait to feel the difference from Map 5 to that with the EWG connector.

I haven't been home for months due to work and it's winter here. Snow and speed don't exactly mix.

I picked the car back up tonight. Did a few pulls on map 2 and then have been in map 5 since. I guess it feels a little bit quicker than it did before the downpipe. It definitely sounds better. I think I was expecting a bit more from it. I even threw in 3 gallons of E85 in and posted my logs on N54tech. I think I just need to go for PS2 and BM3.
