Possible 335d Mods

Whats up guys,

New member here. Driving a 2011 335d. I've had had for almost a year and absolutely lovin' it. Thinking about possibly adding some mods (matte kindey grille, emblems, likely a spoiler as well). Eventually I'll add on some wheels to go along with it. Think a carbon fiber spoiler will fit well with the color?

It seems like the cf spoiler would go well with your car's color; maybe go cf for the grill and other trim items to keep the theme consistent?

IMO the glossy grills look better than the matte.

Why don't you post a pic of your car first. Some combos don't go well together. CF can look ricey if not done right.

A couple of things come to mind depending on your budget...

1) Window tint - nice effect and keeps car cool in summer
2) M3 lip spoiler for the trunk
3) New wheels
4) Hamman rep carbon fiber front lip spoiler
5) Wrap alum window trim in black
6) Lowering springs/shocks or coilovers - more agressive stance and improved handling
7) Lux LED angle eyes
8) H8 Fog light bulbs
9) Black kidney grills
