Mod setback:

If you guys couldn't tell I was sent the wrong reflector trim so that's a bummer. Apparently msport means regular sport bumper lol. Good news is the vendors are working on it.

Mod update:

Challenge cat back exhaust was ordered and will be ordering bc coilovers today. I was going to go with H&R super sport springs as a temporary solution but the pricing on these BC coils is to good to pass up. Plus the car will ride 1,000 times better than short springs on stock shocks. The wheels should be here within the next two weeks as well. Exciting times for sure!

In some ways I want to see what this car looks like and in other ways I dont. The reason I dont is becuase I am probably ordering the same car in the same colour and I want to like how it looks when I get it.

If M3guy's car looks way better than mine, I'll feel like I spent $65K on something that's not as good as it could be...then I will feel compelled to spend even more to make it better, which both I and my wife don't want to happen, but know I may not be able to help myself.....

Thanks, the forums will do that. Good luck with whatever you decide. Just remember it's better to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission...

M3_Guy:

Awesome! Simply AWESOME!

I have a F30 335i in Luxury Line that I have tried my best changing/modding. I've added wheels (Stance SC5 in 20" with huge staggered setup)...Since my car is AW, I went with a Black Tint job, black vinyl wrap roof top and will do the diffuser soon.

I also got the painted reflectors, M Perf. Grills and red painted brake calipers done.

However I am no where close to what you're doing. Your's is gonna look spectacular!

I really want to get the M Perf. Brakes, and Exhaust but its just too much money.

I have the Spoiler and Springs coming up very soon.

Hats off to you bud, I cant wait for pics.

Can you tell us how much you've spent on mods alone? This can give us a rough idea of what we're looking at if we want to do something similar to what you're doing. Just a rough idea....

Thanks again and good luck!!!

I can't wait either. I have a photoshoot scheduled for next Sunday so hopefully everything works out. Still waiting on the car, coils, and wheels though. It seems in modding cars nothing ever arrives on time lol...

Took delivery on 09/01/12. Have only put maybe 100 miles on her so I can't comment too much yet. What I can say is where my M felt solid and crisp, this one feels solid and muted. Like it's wearing gloves while the M is bare hands if that makes sense.

What was installed: Black grills, burger clutch stop, p3cars gauge, amber led corner lights, osram cbi bulds, and keyhole delete.

The installation for the above items were all super easy. Anyone should be able to do them so try not to pay someone if you can help it. There are diy's for the grills, clutch stop, and keyhole on this forum. The diy for the corner lights is in the manual and the diy for the d1s bulbs can be found on e90post. It is much easier than the e90's, you do not even need to remove the wheels to get to them. Lastly p3cars has an excellent youtube video diy for their gauge.

Iphone pics:









Anyone notice what's different with these grills?

How come the ///M emblem faces different directions on the front and rear?
And do the grilles have more slats the sport line?

Thanks! Not sure to be honest, dealer installed them pre-delivery. For the grills I combined the 11 slat oem one from the car with the m performance outer black kidney. Looks more traditional to me this way and I''m liking it better than the jagged m performance 8 slat ones.

To early to say but based on 'feel' alone the M was better.

BC coilovers just arrived. Install is tomorrow. Looks like they do not come with camber plates or rsm's so we will be reusing the stock ones. They do come with new swaybar endlinks though so that's cool.

I thought it looked like they had more slats. Looks good!

There was a time when I was thinking of swapping my slats from the OEM with the outers being the shadowline, but it never happened. May have to try it this weekend.

Kimo,

Car looks amazing! Love the brakes and the P3 gauge!

Can't wait to see how it looks on the BC's!

Btw, you have the 2nd set of BC's for the F30. First set we used for development. Just a fun fact.
