/// aHero4Eternity's BUILD THREAD - Updated 5/27/16

Purchased my 2013 335i BSM M Sport on July 31, 2015 on a whim. I had no intentions of buying a new car as I was perfectly happy with not having a car payment. But I like to test drive cars when I'm bored. There happened to be one 335i CPO on the log (all others were 328i), so I got behind the wheel and the rest is history.

Nice to see your car finally!!! Wow thats a great list of mods since July! You dont mess around. In particular I love the brushed black interior trim. Will you swapping that out for the CF one you just purchased? If you consider selling it let me know.

I also agree that gloss grilles look better. Finally, show us this ridiculous drive way of yours!

Looking real good man.

I'd take the matte black grilles off and put the ///M one's back on (dual slit or whatever they're called lol), just my opinion!

And you need some black concave wheels... Then you're car will have everyone like

Haha, funny story about the grilles. I bought glossy ones, but they sent me matte. They're sending me new ones for free and told me to keep these, so I figured I'd install them for the heck of it. I definitely prefer the glossy ones, too.

Wheels are coming soon. Don't know which ones yet, but soon.

Some people have scoffed at me for having it, but I think it looks good and it's functional! $35 is cheap insurance for my authentic OEM ///M Performance splitter! That was $$$!!

Also, what is involved with the airbag warning delete? New visor or did you somehow remove the label?

I'm going to try to get around to a photo shoot this weekend if the whether cooperates. And if I'm not in food coma after Thanksgiving.

There's a few on YouTube already - those are pretty accurate to what I hear. But I'll do my best to do my own sound clip sometime!

Super simple. Some people take the visors off. I was too lazy to figure out how to do that (it's probably easy, heh). But literally, all I did was take some acetone free nail polish and an old microfiber to it. Soak the microfiber in the nail polish remover (just a small portion, not the whole thing haha) and start spreading/rubbing it over the label. After 30 seconds, start applying some elbow grease to it and it'll start peeling. Took me about 5 minutes per side.

My EZ Lip is a little roughed up. But it's doing its job (protecting my OEM M Perf splitter)!
