My Sapphire Black 335i

Just thought I would do a little photo shoot with some free time while the car was clean and we had a break in the weather here in Houston. Apparently there was something on the lens causing a yellow spot in the middle of some of the pictures so I'll have to be sure to clean it next time.

Mods so far: M Performance Exhaust, Black Grilles, M Performance Carbon Fiber Shifter, M Performance Rear Spoiler

I just got the shifter yesterday, it was a bit underwhelming at first. When I replaced the shifter in my Audi it was a whole new shifter where as for $160 this was just replacement trim in carbon fiber for the shifter. But after getting it on I love it, the dry look of the weave and being able to feel it makes for a great item.

I was really trying to capture the angles of the spoiler in the majority of the pictures. I really love the contrast with the matte black (thanks again to Scott @ BMW Houston North).

Toying with the next mod. I'm thinking either springs, front lip, or complete the carbon fiber interior trim kit.

Any chance for some closeups on the spoiler? I'm thinking of doing the CF on black as well but I am just unsure how it would look.

Here is the only picture I took yesterday that is of just the spoiler. I'll get a better one when it clears up outside.



If you look closely you can see the tail end of our mock space shuttle at JSC in the background

Do you have a front shot that looks like this?



I want to see how that M bumper compares to my sport line in same color, etc. Virginia dealer had already drilled into the bumper for the plate, and I am going to switch the car registration to FL where I dont need a front plate, and want to replace the bumper.

I sure do, just didnt upload them cause I didn't care for them. The lighting wasn't the best to capture the front.

I think it looks mean. I said this in another thread, but I can't wait to see the full M performance kit on a black M sport.

Nice car! Are you planning to do any coding to her? I stay around central TX area but just purchased a 335i from BMW North.

Yeah I already have done most of the coding. Tonight I'm going to code the M Performance start up screen on the HUD. Aside from that I have already done DVD in motion, removed disclaimer, remote close windows/sunroof/mirrors on lock, remove seat belt chimes, enable tire pressure and temperature readings.

Those are all that I can recall but hoping for some more coding finds in the future.

Gorgeous ride! Love that you got those black TX plates to complete the look.
All my cousins in Houston have those black plates.
