Honestly one of the sexiest MG F30s on this board. Beautiful car!

As I suspected, the very rigid RFTs were transferring all the road rash and imperfections to the cabin. They felt fine with M-Sport suspension because of the softer dampers. Michelin Pilot Super Sports are AMAZING! Superior grip and handling with just the right amount of dampening to bring back some of the comfort.

Below are updated pix of my 335i M-Sport 6MT in Mineral Grey with Aluminum Hex/Black interior.

Original PKG and options: Tech, Prem, Driver Assis, 403M 19" wheels, HK Sound, heated seats.

Car includes the following ///M Performance parts:
  • ///M Performance Front Aero Lip Kit
  • ///M Performance Rear Aero Diffuser
  • ///M Performance Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler
  • ///M Performance Exhaust
  • ///M Performance Suspension
  • ///M Performance Stainless Steel Pedals
  • ///M Performance Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps

Next in line will be ///M Performance Brakes and maybe PPK.

For those that are curious about the ride height of the M-Sport suspension - Front sits at just under 27" and rear sits at 26-5/8". You can see measurements here:
http://www.f30post.com/forums/album.php?albumid=8119

Enjoy!

BBS CH-R Wheels with BMW Center Caps & ///M Valve Caps

Front: 19x8.5 ET32
Rear: 19x9.5 ET35

Tires: Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Front: 225/40-19
Rear: 255/35-19
Absolutely stunning, one of the best 335s i have seen. Congrats

I guess your car just looks so good that this thread keeps getting bumped! That's a real clean yet sporty look you've gotten there.

I just got my F30 sport line and am starting the mod journey. I've been considering the 19" 403m vs 20" 405m vs the 19" BBS CH-R wheels.

As someone who has had both the 403m and CH-Rs, could you comment on the difference in drive quality? What prompted the change to CH-Rs? Any input is appreciated! (I am on stock suspension right now)

Was mainly looking to get out of run flats and always been a huge fan of the M3 ZCP wheels. CH-Rs were the closest I could find in quality wheels. Just wasn't willing to go with replicas.

Ride is much improved and only had the 403s on for a couple of weeks with the M suspension. Loosing the run flats added back some of the dampening lost with suspension upgrade. If you plan on suspension upgrade and drive on rough roads I would recommend avoiding 405m. You will feel everything with such a low profile tire.

Why the M valve caps and plate frame on a non-M car and BMW centre caps on non-BMW wheels?

Thanks for this! I'm gravitating towards a BBS CH-R + Michelin PSS combo. Appreciate you sharing your experience!

Personal preference on caps. Not a big fan of the black BBS caps that came with them. Plus, I believe BBS still OEMs most BMW wheels, no? As for valves, as you know, m logo is no longer limited to M cars. Looks like you have an m-sport so I'm sure you too have the m logo somewhere. I suppose I could've gone with BMW logo instead but didn't like those as much.

I hope this doesn't start yet another debate over m vs non-m cars. I thought about an M3 and was on the fence. For me it boiled down to needing the four doors and wanting more of the options available on the F30.

Very tasteful mods, a really clean F30!

BBS CH-R looks so nice on your car. Have you adjusted the rear camber when M Performance Suspension was installed or is it only the natural camber that comes with the lowering?

9.5" ET35 rear can look quite aggressive on non lowered cars but the fitment looks perfect on your 335.

Thanks - kept camber as is with M Performance suspension. Was concerned with rears rubbing which was my main reason for sticking to the OEM sizes. Very happy with the results.

The one thing more annoying than M owners bitching about M badges is non-M owners bitching about M badges. Does it even affect you in the slightest? No.

It's not like he has a damn M badge that can be prominently seen. He has a M valve cap and plate. And you do realize that by switching out the OEM 403Ms, he hasn't really added any more badges than the OEM car? The plate is pretentious, but it's up to personal preference. And it does have a decent amount of useful M Perf parts.

Also, he never once said he had a M car. If he had a M badge on the trunk, M3 style, then it's being pretentious. Heck, I didn't even notice the badges enough to complain.

Thanks for the advice... first mod done.

Got BBS CHR rims with Michelin PSS as well.

Pics can be found here --> http://www.f30post.com/forums/showpo...3&postcount=33

Long way and many mods to go before my ride looks anything close to yours though!

Is that the real carbon fiber M license plate frame or the faux?

Hey MadZarBMR... Have you had any rubbing issues with the rear wheels? If not, do you think you could fit 265 back there instead of the 255?

I've got some wheels from my E92 with the same offsets as your wheels and I'm wondering if I would be able to fit them with 265/35 or 275/30 in the rear. I'm shooting for the 265/35 though... Michelin PSS tires would be the only way to go.

Yeah. It's around $100. Looks just like the faux but from the pics it looks a little darker (almost black).
