Small update.. new "winter" wheel setup came in from OEMconcept. I think the color of the car suits this style of wheel

It was too beautiful car, the picture even if it had effect still highlighted the car, the color salmon is too much, leave the car with clean face

Drop is very subtle on the xDrive.. There's still some wheel gap with 225/40R19 and 265/35R19 Michelins..

Love the normal ride of the springs.. Electronic dampening needs to be adjusted a little, but it's not needed for regular day to day stuff.

I suppose it is sort-of salmon ish in color.. Literally I find this car frustrating to take photos of.. It changes from Gold -> Bronze -> Brown -> Orange every second if the light changes even the slightest.. For some reason both of the sensors in my Nikons are having issues trying to figure out white balance.

I'm not sure what the clean face thing is.. care to explain?

Small update, and an even smaller DIY teaser. Tomorrow when it's light outside I'll try to take a few shots of how the interior modifications turned out.

Sorry for the double post.. but I forgot to show the airbrushing I did on the Headlight Switch as well. WHY didn't BMW match all the trim leaving the factory?



The base coat is Model Masters Steel, with a light mist of Model Masters Aluminum to give it a little shine and depth.

Couple years ago (actually I think it was 5 years) I bough the stuff from Overland-Designs to do a dash wrap on my old 2007 WRX wagon. The stuff I used for this project were the trimmings I had left over sitting in a box.

Thanks.

Well tomorrow I'm scheduled for a track day in Duncan, Vancouver Island.. I'll be doing a photo-op, video shoot and general hooligan behaviour. So, besides adding a little extra tire pressure and putting the car in Sport+, is there anything else I should setup for the track?

This will be the first time I've ever driven a car with Torque Vectoring, Automatic Transmission and All-Season tires on the track.. So, I'm a little nervous. I definitely don't expect to be doing any serious hot laps or setting lap records.. but, it would be nice to know what to expect with the BMW xDrive system.

Valencia Orange 335 M Performance >> to >> USA

Hi - Just joined this Forum. I just purchased my second BMW (will be selling my white 2004 325ci once the new car arrives). It is a 2014 335i x-drive M Performance Edition in Valencia Orange that is being shipped to me in California from Canada. Dealer is taking care of paperwork for import. They have already swapped out the speedometer plate to make it US legal (the Canadian Speedo is only KM and not mph).

From what I have heard from dealer, my car will be the only Valencia Orange F30 currently in the United States. Is there any way to verify that? Is there any way to verify exactly how may of these were built in this color as Automatic + xdrive?

I will post pics when it arrives. I am very excited!
