Challenge - F30 335 Project Car - Took Delivery! - Alpine White, Sport with Coral int

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
A few weeks ago we decided we wanted to pick up a new F30 335i Sport 6MT. We knew it would be hard to find an Alpine White with 6MT especially as most the launch cars tend to be autos. As luck would have it, Eric Maniya at Patrick BMW in Schaumburg, IL was able to search the national incoming launch order and trade for just the car we wanted!

F30 335i
Sport
Alpine White
Coral Red leather
6sp manual


Of course being a launch car it has some new toys like all the camera and tech package. We'll be spending some time in and around the car over the next week so we can point out any of the new or interesting features on the car that most magazines etc may not point out or realize.

After that, we start parts development!



Here is a quick shot i snapped last night before the rain started to fall. I'll post some more yet this week.

Don't worry, 328 is on our radar for exhaust too. Most the aero will carry over for both cars no prob

Full exhaust and down pipe are first up followed by carbon front spoiler, rear diffuser, trunk lip spoiler and possibly mirror caps.

Intercooler and intake will fit in there somewhere in the schedule as well as rear toe arms
