My new F30 328i M sport with M performance suspension and M performance brakes

Hello from Thailand! Bangkok

This my first time owning a BMW and its absolutely incredible!

Unfortunately, BMW Thailand dealers does not allow custom built vehicles

However, I have added several m-performance parts
They are:

OEM 403M wheels
M performance brakes
M performance exhaust
Roof spoiler
Interior Carbon fiber
foot pedal

I have the car for nearly 3 weeks now and i am enjoying every minute! hope you guys like the photos

Like most owners in this forum I can hear the brakes the car passes alone a wall. I have no complaints with the brakes they were bedded in by bmw mechanics from the dealer.

No drowning with the exhaust and it produces nice burbling noise as you hit the gas but very quiet on cruising. it sounds awesome!

Beautiful. My only recommendation is that if you want to keep that M badge on your rear trunk, get one that is properly sized to the numbers. People will flame you for having one,but to each his own. I'd just say keep it the correct size.

nice ride...are you sure you got the red springs for the M performance suspension?

I just got it installed and the ride height is definitely a little lower than your photos.

there was a guy here that installed it and didn't realize that the dealer had the wrong springs (black).

Yes it is a standard 'i' not X drive. Also it has standard suspension not M performance although it may be my future upgrade

Thanks! Fortunately, I dont live in US. In thailand due to over 300% tax on imported cars. M car exceptionally rare here. Even 335i or active hybrid 3 are very uncommon. prob 80% of sedans are Toyota or Honda!

Thanks but i also bought an equal size M badge. I actually prefer the larger one lol. I think its ok to have an M badge on the car as long as the car has some M mods. Even the side of the car below the wing mirrors have an 'M' badge as standard (as its a M sport package)
