Looking for advice/ opinions

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I am considering a few additional mods to my 2013 335i sedan. It is bsm, with 20% tint all around, M performance rear spoiler, M performance black grilles, M performance rocker panel decals( MPPK on order) , 19" 403 M wheels. It is of course an M sport.

The options I'm considering are the matched front reflectors( already decided on this option), rear bumper reflectors to match( I am unsure on this as I haven't been able to see many pics of the rear bumper matched reflectors) if I change the rear reflectors, should I also go bsm or match the rear diffuser ( dark shadow or whatever it's called)? I am also considering a front M performance splitter. If I add this, should I leave it matte black, or have it painted to match the black sapphire metallic? If I have it painted , how much should I expect to pay for paint and how much for installation?

Thanks for any advice/ help in advance.

Nice car! You thought about adding the M Performance Diffusor also?
I was about to suggest the M Performance splitter to here but then I saw you have already mentioned it above. I think you should get that splitter and have it painted Saphire Black, maybe keep the diffusor matte black.
I'm not sure if you've thought about it but I wouldn't lower the car. I think it looks awesome as it is!

Thanks. I believe I already have a diffuser bc it should have came with my car as I have the M sport package already. I know I have a diffuser bc it comes on the M sport rear bumper unless I am confused lol... It should be the grey area right above my exhaust tips and below the reflectors....

I am very seriously considering the front M performance splitter and leaning towards it. My wife however, says she doesn't really like it but its up to me lol...

As far as lowering it, not considering it at this time as I have the M sport suspension with the 19" so the gap is very small as is.

Your car looks nice. From the pictures, you don't have a rear diffuser. They do enhance the looks of the rear! Definitely do the front reflectors - they stick out.

I have a diffuser for sure. It's the dark grey area right above my exhaust on my rear bumper. It comes with every M sport package from my understanding. I believe it comes with the M sport diffuser and not the M performance diffuser apparently.

Nope, the M Performance diffuser is black NOT dark shadow. This is an ADD-ON so never comes with the car unless you ADDED it to your build separately.

Let me try and upload a pic of mine to show u what I'm/we're talking about...

Keep it classy, I say no on front reflectors... rear is kind of sitting on me...Otherwise she is a beauty. Maybe a drop? Its all I can think about with mine at this point. The wheel gap really is crazy. As for diffuser color, I dig body color, but I would vinyl wrap it.

Well, you have the M-sport diffusor. The M Performance Diffusor looks way better. I'll try uploading a picture here.

Yes, that's what I was trying to say. I have the M sport diffuser as opposed to the M performance diffuser. How much is the M performance diffuser? It looks good in the pic.

What does everyone think about the rear bumper deflectors? Leave red or get color matched to my bsm paint or have them matched to the dark shadow diffuser?

As far as front, I'm am going to do for sure.

Not sure about dropping yet . With the 19" wheels and M sport suspension, the car sits pretty low and the wheel gap is not much as is. Wife doesn't like splitter but says it's up to me bc it's my car lol. I like the front splitter in some pics and in others I'm not as sold.

THOUGHTS??

Correct, I don't have the M performance splitter. I was trying to say I have the M sport diffuser that comes with the M Sport pkg
