Mein Auto: BMW 335xi Coupe
Proud Owner of a 335xi

Hello everyone!
I got my first BMW recently and thought it would be interesting to see what people do with their BMWs on here.
Mine is a 2008 BMW 335xi in black! I'm planning on toning down all the chrome and tinting the windows. Can anyone point me to some results of this being done? I'm new to the forum and don't really know where to find this.

Also, any general advice on the car? What to look out for, stuff not to do etc?

Much appreciated!

Welcome to Forum
I think the car looks good with spacers, 15mm on rear wheels and maybe 10mm in the front - it will look awesome and better handling, i would also paint the brakes pads in red and tint the back windows 35%. I suggest to avoid aftermarket upgrades. I had the same car / year but i convertible - bought it at 28k miles and i put 170k on it, was very reliable and fun driving.
Good luck

Thanks for replying!
I never put spaces on wheels before. How safe are they? Is there any negative affect? Mine is at 48k right now. I put like 300 miles on it in 2 days just joy riding... So much fun! And something I wasn't expecting (Or really cared about) it actually gets decent mileage haha.. being driven hard I still got like 22mpg
