New F32 Estoril Blue M sport

EDIT: This has evolved into a timeline thread.

So happy with my 435i M sport. I'm coming from about 6 years of Volkswagen ownership so this is a giant leap in quality and performance. I have done a few small mods so far and plan on doing a few more, but nothing too wild. I've installed JB Stage 1, shaved the front sidemarkers, installed M4 grilles, tinted all of the glass, installed LCI tailights, and installed a colormatched quad rear valence. I have H&R super sport springs at home and plan to purchase wheels this spring. Also looking into the M sport front lip and side skirts, as well as the Remus quad exhaust.

I look forward to hearing your feedback and learning more about the car!!








Here are some pictures of my old VW

Thanks! I loved those as well. Wish I had those exact wheels for my 435.

You maybe forget something at coding

Love the color and the car, reminds me at mine, every F32 is better than the 3 series
Would suggest you to hear a BASTUCK exhaust, not a fan of Remus. Plus Bastuck quad tip exhaust muffler is available with a matching ABS diffusor, for Remus you had to cut the OEM one.
How about CF mirror caps or wrapping those EBII into glossy black?

I'm thinking that coding only works with specific models with nav. I'll take a listen to BATSUK. As for the mirror caps, those will probably stay! How could you cover up that gorgeous blue I considered the M4 style color-matched estoril blue but I'm not sure if I want to do that yet.

The color is gorgeous, but for me it must have some accents to differ from the lot. I'd first wrapped the mirror caps and changed them later to CF caps. Liked them very much plus you hadnt seen this at every street corner
Had also CF M4 trunklid installed and considered to change the diffusor also into CF but that was at least only a plan to do sometimes. Never realized this before sold the car.
