    Got some cash to spend

    Iv got loads I want to do to the 335 but only enough money to do one this week...

    1) White wrap
    2) New wheels
    3) Full m-sport body kit with carbon rear diffuser and carbon front splitter
    4) Height and damper adjustable coil overs
    5) Downpipes and full exhaust
    6) Brakes all round
    Or
    7) Intercooler and silicone hoses

    All cost around £1000 - £1500 but ideally I need them all at the same time.. Any ideas?

    What do you want most out of the car??

    If it was mine and I owned a 335i - Do the exhaust & intake... make it sound even better... mine you saying that dont even know what it sounds like now

    Or give me the money and I'll spend it on mine

    Id get it breathing and sounding better.

    Recommend MIJ performance back boxes like mine. Would sound nice.

    You'd need to do them in a specific order.

    Msport kit with different rear diffuser (depending on which exhaust tips you want)
    Exhaust
    Wrap (as you'd want to wrap your new Msport additions)

    Coilovers
    Wheels (as you can determine correct offset and clearance after the coilover drop)
    Brakes (as bigger brakes may not clear your OEM wheels)

    Intercooler whenever

    Do it the right way, it bollocks doing wheels and exhausts on a car when the money would be better spent on handling and braking, so do the brakes then the suspension followed by the wheels then the exhaust and finally the visual stuff.
    Most people just do the visual stuff and the noisey bits, then the car looks good but doesnt handle or stop as well as it should, I'd rather have a normal looking car with great handling and brakes, they are the bits which will give you better driving pleasure and could save you by stopping quicker or keeping you on the road, who gives a fuck if it sounds loud, you can do that latter.

    Exhaust and intercooler are for power, you'll never have it "boy racer" loud because of the turbos.
    Are the brakes shit on the 335i then?
