My 2013 328i Xdrive Base AW

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So finally converted my 2013 Classic Edition 328i Xdrive
Added the following option at the dealer:

Lighting Package
Premium Package
Heated Steering Wheel

Added the following small items:
Afe intake
BMW Gloss Black Grills
Replaced base fog cover to sport line fog covers
Ebay AW spoiler
GP Thunder 7500k Fog Bulbs to kinda match the headlights
Solar Gard HP Supreme 22 Tints all around
Replica M310 Satin Gunmetal Wheels 19x8.5 ET35 Squared
with General GMAX AS03 225/40/19 (would have went with 235/40/19 but not much selection in tires so stuck with 225)

Waiting for:
M Performance or Active Exhaust. (Can't decide and don't want to spend more than $1K)

What do you guys think if I tint my tail lights but at its lightest tint.

Always jealous of how our Montreal neighbours don't require front plates in Montreal. Liking what you've done so far, I would personally skip the tail light tints, but whatever floats your boat. I am in the same boat as you, waiting for xdrive springs. The gap is really horrendous and probably is the first fix in order for any xdrive F30.

Ok, guess no tints.
What to so next in terms of esthetics?
Vinyl wrap roof?

Well done. Get yourself some rustoleum spray paint and fix those rotors up. That rust looks terrible. I just did mine a few weeks ago and I have had massive rain where I am and they have held up well. Didn't do the entire hub just the edge and it looks so much better.

Just added the afe intake. I find that you don't hear much of a difference on comfort or Eco mode.

On sport mode is when you really hear the difference. Step on it hard and then release the pedals and it will make you feel that you installed a bov.

Now i Need to lower the car. i know H&r sport but heard its make your ride bouncy or wait for eibach, had them on previous cars and they were great. It's not as low as h&r but maybe it won't bounce as much. I believe Eibach for xi is not available yet.

Can't decide.

How did you retrofit the sportline covers? I've read some forums where the bumper needs trimming and other ones where just the covers are trimmed. I'd like to be able to fit the covers without having to cut the bumper :/

You'll just have to trim a little off the back of the cover. Once you have them and try fitting it, you'll know right away where is hits and that's where you'll need to trim. The front top won't be sitting flush but was told to use some clear silicone/glue to fill it and make the cover stay fit to the bumper.
