Re-installed the M-Performance Spoiler. The previous one was loosing contact, seemed to raise naturally. After a long wait on the backorder, Finally got it fitted. Hopefully it stays firmly fixed.



Once the steering wheel is fitted, Going to install Bilstein B14 to lower the ride, roughly about 4 fingers in gap at the moment.

wow inspirational build. Very nice man, I know lots of people in Asia that mod their cars and deal with the same luxury tax hurdles. It just makes sense to purchase a lower trim and drop the money on mods to make it better!

Thanks. In Australia, the sticker price for a BMW 328i and BMW 335i are set apart by an extra $27,000 USD.
This is mainly due to luxury car taxes of $8500, Stamp duty tax $4000 & other registrations for around $1000.

Logically, I rather customize something unique for much less.

Nice build thread...That black is gorgeous! I love the facelift. Did you purchase through BMW and do the install yourself after paint? Can't wait to see it lowered!

Thanks, glad you liked it. The Black draws outs the cars lines especially with the M Sport facelift. I purchased the kit from a local BMW reseller who painted & installed it. Can't wait to get it lowered too, installing some Bilstein B14 PSS for a more aggressive stance and control.

Nope they were plug and play, however I suspect they might require coding as it's not as effective. The fitment was identical and plugs into original cables.

I got the seats upgraded at a leather upholsterer. The seats are much more supportive and aggressive looking, I agree the Dakota just doesn't suit the car.
