I've got some wheels from my E92 with the same offsets as your wheels and I'm wondering if I would be able to fit them with 265/35 or 275/30 in the rear. I'm shooting for the 265/35 though... Michelin PSS tires would be the only way to go.
No rubbing issues at all, but keep in mind I'm running m perf suspension which really stiffened up and keeps compression down. Even with two full size adults, the suspension barely drops. I do see plenty of room for 35/265 and others on here have already confirmed that they fit. Will probably go that size when it's time for new shoes.

Thanks - cops in SF Bay would be all over me with first two items and i'm not a fan of front windows being dark anyway.

Planning on doing performance kit and rockers next. Brakes still have plenty of life in them so that will probably be the last mod I do and I will be complete. That is of course if I don't jump into an M3 when my lease is due.

You have good taste my friend!

I say that because the car on its way to me right now is a 2014 335i M-Sport Mineral Grey with Black Dakota/Aluminum Hexagon interior, M-Sport brakes and the same packages (and some other goodies, basically everything that doesn't try to do the driving FOR you).

California be damned, I am not going to run a front plate. I ordered my car with the MPPK to be port installed and have thought about some of these other M-Performance parts, notably the suspension (don't know if I can install that and keep the adaptive dampers) MPE, black kidney grilles, and stainless steel pedal/foot rest covers. Its nice to find some pictures to help me make up my mind.

Thanks - unfortunately, you would lose adaptive dampers with MPS. Actually, not even sure if this is now an option for adaptive cars. I remember a year ago it was not.

Your pictures are killing me while I wait for my car to get here..........so close to adding the front splitter, rear diffusor, and spoiler now.

Have you thought about the M Performance rocker panels? I can't tell the difference between them and the stock M-Sport ones from pictures.

Thinking of doing rockers if I do power kit. Rockers should even out the line from the front splitter to rear and give it a wider look. Hard to tell the diff in pictures on MG. If I get it, will keep black and clear bra it to give it the same gloss finish as the front splitter and grills.

Hope you don't too much more to wait for yours.

I've already added the SS pedals, black grilles, MPPK and MPE if I keep sitting here looking at pictures of your car or other Mineral Grey cars with M Performance goodies I'm sure by the time it gets here I'll have added every M Performance part there is!


I really want the electronic steering wheel too but since it is Alcantara I would want to do the full M Performance Interior with it.......see how it gets started??'

I haven't been able to stop looking at pictures of your car since I ordered mine. Today I decided to go "all in" and ordered the front splitter, rear diffuser, rocker blades, and spoiler too. Looks like when they're port installed the side blades and front splitter get painted to match the body.

Thanks for the high quality pics and inspiration!

I'm getting side blades installed next Tuesday on my mineral gray 335i. I have the other performance parts, all installed at the port, and they were not body color painted. (I assume that would cost extra, I didn't ask for it, they didn't do it.)

My pleasure - seems like you should be able to request that they not be painted if you don't want them to. That is an extra charge and time for paint. I only had the outer part of rear diffuser painted on mine so the actual diffuser would stand out.

Cool - hope you post pictures once you have them. Are you having them painted?

Thanks!

I'm going to stay with matte black on the blades, as I did with the diffuser & lip (spoiler is cf). Your car was certainly the inspiration as I ordered and planned many of the additions; it looks amazing! Mine is very similar, albeit w/o bbs rims and mps.

I'll snap some pics as soon as I get the painted reflectors on, side blades installed, and a good wax on it.

Well, had to rush as daylight was fading and rain looming. Here's a couple shots and a link to the full set:

You can see the side blades discreetly in both pics:

Thanks - car is coming along nicely. Good Job!

Looking at your interior, I'm thinking of CF trim now.

How noticeable is boost from MPPK? And at what rpm do you notice it most? Really thinking about it and was going to wait to test F80, but now not sure.

I had mppk installed at VPC, so I don't really have a good frame of reference apart from the test drives I've done via non ppk models. The car is lively throughout the rev range until 5k. It's easy to drive it conservatively, yet there is always a lot of torque on tap.

The car looks great, i especially like the wheels.
Are you using original BMW center caps or overlay stickers on the BBS caps?
As far as i can figure out the BBS CH-R uses 70.6mm centercaps and the original BMW are 68mm.
I am set on getting silver BBS CH-R for the mineral grey F32 428i i have on order myself, and BMW centers will be the perfect final touch for the wheels
