Sharing Images of My first BMW since my E30!

Hey All,

Fairly new to the site.
Picked up a 2015 335xi M Performance Edition a little over two weeks ago.
Its my first BMW since my 1989 E30 325is. Boy do I miss that car!! However, this car has been a blast to drive over the last couple weeks. Loving every minute of it!

I absolutelely love all the goodies that come with the car, but the one thing that bothered me was the ride height of the xi. And unfortunately, the xi model of the M Perf. Edition did not come with a lower suspension setup (the RWD comes lower).

So far mods to date:
- 50% tint all around
- H&R Sport Springs
- Resonator Delete

15mm/10mm spacers en route so looking forward to the stance after these are installed!

Enjoy!

Love love love that color! It pretty much as all the mods you need! I really like how the blue calipers stands out against your darker color car.

Very nice! I see you went all out on the MPerformance add ons!

Only thing I've never been a fan of is the MPerf 20's. Either of the styles (I think there's only two, yes?)

This car is actually spec'd from factory with essentially all the M goodies (all aero parts, wheels, brakes, MPPK, MPE, MP Intake, suspension, the works) so i actually didn't add a single thing. Made the modding process easy

Thanks for all the positive comments! And as tboooe said, its pretty much got everything I need to do.

I almost spent some money on the BMS stage 1 but decided that although it does bump it up a tiny bit (essentially overrides the MPPK and renders it useless), it probably wont be enough of a difference to make it worthwhile. Rather spend those dollars towards some interior goodies

Haha I agree!!

However I'm having trouble finding painted reflectors in the Sparkling Graphite colour. iND doesn't seem to have that colour choice on their website. Nor can I find them in my colour on ebay!

Anyone know of which vendor might have these in the Sparkling Graphite option?

Apparantly it was an individual colour offered only for the M Perf. Edition car for this year? I don't believe it came for other models. But I'm so happy they did bring it back for this car from past years as I love the colour as well!
