Without checking part numbers on realoem.com, I'm pretty sure it's an entirely different rack.

My 335 is bone stock and I too am amazed at how much burbling, popping and otherwise flatulent-sounding the exhaust can be in sport mode. I'm sure this is magnified quite a bit with PPK + Perf...

FINALLY! 19" aftermarket wheels that look 100% at home on the F30. Very, very classy with Jet Black. Love it. Wonderful choice. IIRC, this is the first set of aftermarket wheels I've seen on an F30...

Cal, I don't use the diff... I use the crossmember just behind and slightly above the diff. It's nice and flat and gives you a nice steady place to lift from. Depending on how high your jack goes,...

I will attempt to take a picture after work...

Congratulations on choosing the best looking exterior color for a ZSL 335i. I admit, I'm a bit biased. :D

Both are very pretty to look at.

AW = Classic

A quick note about ZDH (an Adaptive Suspension observation)

Having tired of winter, snow and all things cold, I swapped the 335 back onto the OEM wheels and rubber today. My wife and I grow weary of the noisy Blizzaks and we're ready for warmer weather. And...
