Request - F30 335i engine bay and any F30 Fuse panels

Can any F30 335i owners please post some nice detailed pictures of their engine bay please ?
Something like a overview shot and then a few closeups of different components.

Also looking for someone to take a few pictures of any F30 fuse panels


Thanks

I can help out later this evening if no one else has by then. I'm on the road right now though.

What shots are you looking for? I snapped the engine bay but there's not much to see. Don't want to take anything apart.

Perfect, thank you for your help



EDIT: Now if someone would like to take a picture of their fuse panel in the trunk and engine bay on any F30 I would be all set
A picture of the battery would also be nice

This is for any f30, not just 335i

Yes, most intriguing!

I will gladly post a pic when I pick up my car on Tuesday, assuming you don't have one by then.

If I had my car, I'd take the pic. With all the help and answers that E90fleet has given to this community, I'm bumping this up. Lets go guys!

There's a fuse box there? The manual only indicates two locations: top left on the engine bay pic, and under the trunk floor.

I'm glad you were able to get these photos for E90Fleet. He has been very helpful and informative to the point I thought he worked for BMW SA but I guess not. I was going to snap some pictures for him today when I was at the local BMW dealer doing some test drives but they were fresh out of 335i's

Just order one without the test drive, it's more exciting that way.

A picture of the battery would also be nice

These are for any F30, not just 335i

I dont have easy access to a F30 at the moment and seeing the actual parts makes interpreting the systems and wiring diagrams much easier.
Also shows what has been changed from the E90.

I also like looking at things like are the Fuses still from the OEM manufacturer Littelfuse and whats the mix of ratings used and whats the mix between ATO, Mini and Maxi fuses used on the F30.
Standard stuff one needs to know about F30

Hey E90Fleet... what do you actually do? I mean, if you don't work for BMW, is this just a hobby?

Spoken like an engineer... of some kind.

EDIT: Is there a service manual or something that a layperson like me can get a hold of?

Well here's the trunk one, very interesting stuff. Someone more adventurous than I can take apart the engine bay one.
