Modest build thread - Canadian 335i X-drive EBII

So it's been just over 1 month I have my car and I obviously have the mod bug, even though I told my self I'd keep modding at a minimum !

I was going to wait until spring to get the ball rolling on the mods but I couldn't help myself.

Excuse the low quality pics.

Day 1 - Bone stock


No badges just one day later


Black grill and tints, 35% on the sides, 20% on the rear


A little DIY action, dipped the rear reflectors


Changed the bulbs to 6000k




Brushed the exhaust tips




Winter mode !


Front reflectors are gone


Lip spoiler


As she sits right now awaiting more mods




Cyba 3.5" brushed aluminum exhaust tips


Mods to date:
Front reflectors color matched
Rear reflectors plasti-dipped
Black kidneys
Tints 35% sides, 20% rear glass
Brushed Cyba 3.5" exhaust tips
Chrome bulbs
Coding
JB4 + Map 5 + 94 Octane
ER downpipe
Rear diffuser
Mild drop (M-sport Springs on X-drive shocks)
Spacers for my 403s
Custom exhaust setup

Future mods
Front splitter

Comments and criticism welcome !

Don't get too excited ! I'm looking for as mild of a drop as I can get, maybe even just M-sport springs that will give me a ~10-12mm drop

Always keep a spare one in the trunk left the car at home today though even though it's ideal for this type of weather I'm trying to shelter it from the terrible road conditions as long as I can

Funny you mention this, BMW does not have M-Sport spring for the Xdrive. I think only H&R does for now. Good luck!

Yes, I know. But the M-Sport springs that are for the 335i will fit the X-drive even though they are not made for the X-Drive. That's why I'm contemplating it.

Haha thanks ! Yes that is a lot of washer fluid, but it's somewhat necessary. Out of that whole batch I only have 4 left now ! However, it does supply our entire family's car fleet (we have 5 cars).

Running with JB4 stage 2 Map 2 + DP + 94 octane. Charge pipe on order to be installed this as soon as I get it.

Will post videos showcasing exhaust note with this setup as soon as the weather clears up.

Grats man, looks great!

H&R sport springs are pretty mild. Look into it, if you haven't.

Yeah I am. Looking at H&R sports, Dinan or Eibach. Maybe even OEM M-sport. I work in real estate and construction so job sites aren't too friendly with lowered cars.

My G37S with eibachs was scraping all over so I want to avoid that.
