Joining the BMW family- AW 335xi M-Sport

Been lurking on here for a little while and figured it was finally time to post up this beauty that I picked up this past June.
Absolutely loving this car and all the features, gadgets and power. Coming from a bare bones Honda Accord so this car is leaps and bounds ahead. She is pretty well equipped so thank you previous owner for building it exactly how I would have done it!

As for mods, I think I'm going to stick with minor cosmetic stuff for now. So far all I've done is get it detailed and ceramic coated (SB3 Alpha coating) and 35% tints. Definitely need to do something about the front plate & want to get gloss black kidney grills soon as well.
Thanks for looking!

Welcome! This is an expensive place to hang out. DO NOT ask these guys what mods you should do. Your wallet will thank me later.

Can you post pics from the side of the car?

I have the same color combo and am debating on doing 35% tints.

Hahah so I've realized. That's why I've only started posting now after getting the car 6 months ago. Wife forbid me from modding right away She knows me too well.

That combo was my second choice. I'm a sucker for a white car.

Sure thing - attached em below.
They are a nice level for me. It's what's legal here in MD and it's just dark enough to look good. 25% would be a little better but I'm happy with it.

Looks great. My biggest concern was not having the red interior visible enough from the outside.

How does it look in person if you're standing outside of the car? Either way I think you sold me on going with 35%

You can see it enough through the tint to tell it is red. Plus, I figure it provides a nice bit of protection for the pretty red interior from the sun too.

I don't think you'll regret 35%.

To me those pics actually look a little darker than how 35% would look in person. It's not hard to see inside if you try to, but still noticeably darker than stock. That's why it's legal in most states.

It looks like it was an overcast day when you took the pics, so that might be why it looks somewhat dark.
