Mein Auto: 335i Coupe
Moved up to an E92!

Well I finally did it. I've had a 2001 325CI for 12 years and last night upgraded to a 2011 CPO 335i with 27K miles. White with black int, Nav, Sat, Premium and Sport. The car came with 19" five spoke wheels. Still haven't looked yet to see what the spec are on them, They were an upgrade when the car was new. I'm trying to decide whether I like them or not. They have 225X35X19 up front and 255X30X19 rear. The dealer said he wouls swap them with any other 3 serries on his lot if I like. I think I might like the wheels that are on a 2011 M-Sport, 18" as I think the ride might be a little bit better. I also really like the CSL wheels in black. I plan to black out the wheels and grille. Looking for advice here fellow 335i owners.

Thanks.

JB4. All the power you will ever need for a daily driver. Ditch the run-flats, especially if you keep the 19's. (Still have mine. Considering replacing before they wear out.) Window tints, LED Angel Eyes, and you're good for awhile!

Pics or it didn't happen. Personally, I'm not a fan of the blacked out look when it comes to wheels, but I do like the black trim on the grill and other bits of trim on the outside.

Black wheels

Here are the pics, I decided to stick with the 19's and made them black along with the grille. I'm going to black out the roof next and be done.

Next item on the list

I want to black out the roof and put a small black trunk lip like the ones that come on the M3. Any thoughts on these ideas?

Thanks!

You gonna paint or wrap the roof? If your going to paint it, put a piece of wrsp first to make sure you are going to like it.

Re: Moved up to an E92!

This is gonna look like my white e92 I just got 3 weeks ago. Waiting for my black kidney grille and black out the rims and top too. I just can't decide if I want CF, matte or glossy black for my roof. Nice rims! Did you use plastidip?

Going to wrap it in gloss black. And add a white trunk lip I think? Also found the bumper plugs for the front.

Thanks for all the advice.
