Mein Auto: BMW M3
Bmw 335i 2007 remake advise

Hello
I have my 335i has 155k miles. I was thinking to change new sport brakes, bumpers, angel eye and sime more cosmetics. Total would be about 6k. Also if needed, in future, i'll change engine too. Do you think it worths making these changes on a 2007 car with 155k miles or is better to sell it and buy newer one ? I really love my car.
Thanks for yoour thoughts

Where can you get bbk's for less than 10 I think stoptechs are like 3 for fronts 3 for backs plus if you don't have 19's your looking at new rims all around and tires. One reason I was like doh with the 335i I was looking at close to 13k on brakes!

Angles on the sedan you've gotta take the tires off so if you aren't good at that it can be a PITA.

Not sure about bumpers but the m ones always look nice

If you haven't done jb4/cobb you can change the car for 400-800 bucks.

My car is e93 convertible. I have 18's wheels. I saw sport brakes like m3 with red pads are about 3k, bumpers are 2k rear and front. Right now my bumpers look like mickey mouse, i have to change them anyway. I'm thinking if it worths investing in it. I could sell it for 12k and add 15 more to buy newer one but i think remaking this one would be better. What is yr advice ?

Maybe you could link me to bbk's that work with the 18s cause thats what I had and the stoptechs and brembos (where I was heading), or dinan were all 19+ wheels.

Move to M3 forum as that's what you have, apparently. Wait....you don't? Why does Mein Auto say M3?

Worth it? Not a chance. You claim you put 80,000 mi on your car in a year for one thing, second those items won't be worth a fraction of that at resale. But if you don't mind spending 6g on something you'll never get back but you really, really like; that's entirely for you to decide.
