Hey Folks;

Recently picked-up a 2009 335i Xdrive. It had just over 50K miles.

The previous owner (the 1st) had ordered this thing with everything:

- MSport Package - including paddle shift, MSport Seats, M3 Interior trim, also includes the BMW M3 front and rear bumpers
- Nav, PDC, iDrive
- Dakota Leather
- BMW Individual Audio w/iPod integration (Sounds ****ing awesome) :excited:

I've changed to the F10 Shift knob and added a phone mount from Bimmian. Just received and installed my Stormtech mats (front, rear and trunk liner) today. Interior pictures to come later.

Found some 19" BBS wheels staggered with 235/265 front/rear tires... Looks sick IMO :argue:

Now for the juicy stuff: :clap:

I've installed a few toys to give her a little more pop.... They would include:

- AA Diverter pipe and blow-off valve
- aFe Cold Air Intake
- CMS Oil Catch Can
- Finally, to give it some pop - Burger Motorsports JB4 Stage III
(been playing between map 1 (13.5psi) and Map 5 (auto-tuning map; based on fuel, conditions and mods - 12 - 20psi Boost). I like map5 the most so far.

- also being installed hopefully this weekend - AA Intercooler (larger race version)

- Planning to install tonight:
- 6K HID Headlights
- 6K Upgrade to the Angel Eyes
- 6L HID Fog lights

Here's some pictures of the upgrades so far:

The Stock Engine Picture:

JB4 Unit installed:

Installed, ECU Cover on with USB Cable tucked into compartment:

BMS Oil Catch Can installed:

Seafoamed the engine, changed the plugs and the oil as well :woot:

Removed the stock intake, diverter pipe and diverters and the associated plumbing:

The New AA Diverter pipe and blow-off valve assembly:

Last thing I installed this afternoon - aFe Cold Air Intake:

That's it for now...

I like the aFe, but the JB4 has given it an additional 100hp.... squak in first 3 gears now.... Just installed the AA Race FMIC.... Here are the final engine pictures..... until the Racing Dynamics Carbon fiber valve cover arrives....

Trying to decide if I should change the center grill over the FMIC........ Something more aggressive; metal.....
