About $4k, needed two new doors, front bumper and driver side headlamp.

I found the driver door used locally for about $400, Found a headlamp on Ebay for about $500, came without the LED modules for the CELIS lights, luckily I was able to salvage them from the broken one. They also painted the new front bumper and side skirts for me. Unfortunately the only place that had a rear passenger door for the touring was BMW, but it wasn't too bad.

After a lot of deliberating I went with staggered CI-Rs. I wanted a square set up of 20x9 but I didn't think a +25 was going to give me the fitment I wanted up front so I went with 20x8.5 and 20x9.5.

They are sitting in my garage, I'm planning to mount some NT1's over the summer and use them for track wheels when the weather turns more agreeable here in AZ

Yep, I found a 335i Exhaust for sale locally and had a local shop weld it up. I wanted the rear to be symmetrical, never liked tips off to one side, would rather hide them completely like I did on my old 540.

11k miles when I got her.

Former BMW press car, so yes, it was a write-off which also means voided warranty unfortunately.

Nice. Installed some CIR on my current as well. Love the Platinum Silver finish. Key is to remove the stainless steel rim guard IMO.

Hmm, considering my nickname on the local BMW forum was "curb surfer" I'm inclined to keep them on...lol

I already curbed the Schnitzers once, although I have gotten pretty good at repairing rash on my own since I do it so often...lol

Or, stay with me here, spend the time avoiding curbs. Just saying.

No spacers, I was actually surprised too.

Not really sure what else I want to do.

Maybe a DP/full exhaust. Motor is currently stock except for the ESS tune.

I'd like to find a set of the orange caliper M-performance brakes.
