Quick update on the 335ix M sport EBII

Just got the wheels painted, Tint completed & Grills installed. Looks a little high in these pics, less so when my fat ass is in the car...




This is a fun car!

Funny, I changed them on the M3 and liked it, I am still thinking about adding the MSport Brakes, and if I did, may put the Orange ones on...so I wasn't sure the reflector might not look kinda cool then...

Yes, these are the 19s...

Thanks for the comments guys, I have to say this car has been way more fun than I actually thought it would be...so much so that my wife has had to drive the M3 for the last week while I take the 335 to work...

Niiice...the orange M sport brakes will look good...but IMO the stock reflectors take away that "it" factor from the car..

Looks awesome! Too bad you're not local, i would love to see how good the M-adaptive suspension is on the xdrive msport as i didn't opt for it on mine. Also, i hate how high our cars sit, much higher than the regular 335i non-xdrive cars. I hope there's a spring/coilover application soon.

Very nice, although I prefer the original color of the wheels!! But, the important is that you love it...

I really like the original finish as well...but I know that my wife won't wash them every few days, and I hate to see BMWs with silver wheels on the back and brown ones on the front from BMW brake dust. So she gets Black wheels...

This has not been lowered, correct? Wheel gap doesn't seem as bad as i expected with the 19's on x-drive.

That's correct. The OP's suspension heights looks exactly like my Msport, you can really see how the gap is accentuated in the rear especially compared to non-xdrive.

Black painted wheels

Sorry, but I'm not a fan of all-black wheels, except for pick-up trucks.

Thanks. I was actually expecting worse, having seen mostly 17's or 18's on x-drive so far. Trying to decide if I want AWD or RWD.
