Ton of pics of my 11 335IS

Havent had a chance to take any of my own pics yet, but here was the dealer link to the pics.

Tell me what you think and if you see anything out of place! The only thing I noticed is the brakes look very grey?

Thanks

The brakes were painted a darker color than stock which is silver. I wish BMW would have used proper finished brake calipers like they are starting to do on the F Series.

I actually like it this way. Weird because this was an off lease purchase. Don't know why someone would do that on a lease, but they did a great job of keeping it even. Blends in nicer with the gunmetal accents on the 313's

Probably painted them because the brake calipers discolor and look bad after a while (not that they looked good when new).

Great looking car. And the caliper painting fixes one of my minor pet peeves.

I put on the low profile one that comes with the e92 M3. Looks great. Applied using double sided 3M tape. I think it was around $200 or so @ Bavarian Autosport.

Yeah I think that's the one I want too vs the performance spoiler. Do you have a pic of yours?

This looks like a tad too big....then again that is just pure sex right there I don't know

I see this on ebay for $60 and you can choose your paint. Not sure about the quality though.

I like a smaller more subtle spoiler. The 1st one is a bit much IMO. The eBay one looks to be the same one I have. Guess I should have checked there 1st.

Calipers....spoiler....Bling. Ppl y u by 335is?

Not to performance mod - most seem to believe they already have what can be done. But anyone can vastly improve the car's power and handling.

So, are cosmetic changes lipstick on a pig? Yes. But there is one thing, can't be had on any other three 'cept M3: DCT transmission. And in the calculus of BMW's pecking order, you have purchased like a Boss!

LOL.

Yeah dont want to get too crazy. It should have come with that M3 rear spoiler by default, it's small. As for the calipers....ugly.

Without a doubt replace em with Black it really creates a nice flow although they do come in clear & smoke but do not look as good....$60 mod that pays big dividends.
