Lean, mean 335 fighting machine

Finally had our first sunny weekend in Southern California which means I had a chance to get out and take some pics of the car. I think I might be the only person in the LA area that has the M Performance Stripe. It is definitely a big time love/hate item. But I have found it grows on people as well. Either way I love it and makes it easy to find my car among a sea of Alpine Whites in California.

My 335 Sports Line has the following done:
Llumar tint on sides and back 35/20/15
Calipers painted red
H&R Sport Springs
Vinyl wrap eyebrows on front headlights (to hide the silver)
Red Vinyl wrap on whiskers
M Performance Grill
M Performance Black Stripes
IND Front reflectors color matched
20x8.5 and 20x10 Koko Kuture Ultralight Lindos Wheels in Matte Black
Hankook tires

It drives so much better than stock.

Very mean looking 335.

If you don't mind me asking, what is the offset on the 10" rears and what size are the tires?

And I'm in the LA area too, what is up with the front license plate? That's creative.

Nice pictures.

Front plate is still technically illegal but you have to be quite the dick cop to give me a ticket for it. I mean i am showing that it is a cali plate and my number. That id all they need technically. Customeuropeanplates.com

Rear offset is +38

I had put 275/35s on them and had awful rubbing directly on the fender edge. With the springs I got some negative camber but it didn't fix it. Even if we went max neg it was still gonna rub. So I had to go 255/35 to move outside edge 10mm in. Made all the difference. Now no rubbing at all. And car within BMW alignment specs and I didn't have to roll the fenders. And as you can see they still look great and I am not riding on band aids. Ride is better than stock.

Yes, because when I do mods, my main priority is to make sure I can find my car in a parking lot. No offense but I think it looks terrible. Stripe is fail, red whiskers are fail.

I like the whole thing but the red whiskers. I think it will flow better without them. Im surprised but I think the stripe looks good.

Love the stripe, but find the whiskers too shiny/plastic-y. I think a metallic cherry red would set them off nicely.
