Livfast335's 2013 EB F30 335 Mod Journal

Hey guys!

I wanted to start a journal as I will be keeping this car, and I want to start modding. I wanted to be able to follow my progress, especially as spring is arriving and I can finally begin.

Here's a picture when I first bought her, and waxed her.






Purchased Mods:

-Euro Plate (Installed 3/15/2015)
-Fender M Badges
-M Performance Side Decals
-M Performance Matte Black Kidney Grills (Installed 3/15/2015)
-Painted Estoril Blue Front Reflectors (Installed 3/15/2015)
-Avant Garde M310 matte black (Staggered setup)
-Michelin Pilot Super Sport (255/35/19 & 225/40/19)

February 28 2015

De-badged:

I decided to remove everything, make a clean look.
Before:


After:


Golf Tee Mod:

I removed the clip from the left side pipe today, sound is really awesome, in all modes. Here's a nice exhaust clip.





"Custom" Intake Mod:

Okay, this might seem like a silly thing to do, but I did this on my old 1.8T Jetta, and I saw a nice difference compared to the stock setup.

We cut a hole in the box, specifically where it allows more room for the sound to come out.



This is the sound it produced with a STOCK Air Filter.
Now that I saw the difference, I will get a k&n filter and post the difference.

Easy way to get higher flow, and a beautiful sound.

Update: Kidney Grills and Euro Plate

I was fed up of the old nasty plate in front, they screwed holes in for nothing, even though there's no requirement in our Province for that.

I decided to get a euro plate to make it look nicer.

April 8, 2015 Update:

Summer mags and Michelin Pilot Super Sport!

I didn't have the best weather or area, but I'll take better pictures very soon.
I'm planning on putting the black M performance decals on the rockers very soon.
