2016 was a great year for my 335i, but it’s time to look at fresh mods for 2017…
Now, I’m not happy that the show season has finished, far from it, 2016 was a great year and was rounded off by fantastic Players 10 and TRAX events. But after clocking up hundreds and hundreds of miles travelling to the UK’s finest shows it’s time to give the old BM a well deserved pampering over winter. And this means more mods, and that’s a good thing, right?
First of all though, it’s time to swap over the wheels as the 3SDM splits have taken a bit of a hammering over the last few weeks while driving through interchangeable weather conditions. As you can see from the lips I need to get busy with a polishing cloth before hibernating them for winter. I’ve still got my trusty 0.04s to go back on but before they do, I’ve decided to send them off for a coat of gloss black to key in with the roof and details. Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean my wheel game can’t be strong.
Once this is all sorted it’ll be time to get serious. I want to get the car completed for Spring next year so I can enjoy another epic show season. The biggest job will be finding, fitting and paying for the brakes but I know what I want, and a few phone calls have already been made.
I also need to sort out a cheeky induction kit and a bit of engine dress-up to bring the bay up to scratch with the rest of the car. Then it’s a case of getting a nice boot build to accompany the air install.
So yeah, it’s going to be a busy few months but as they say, time goes faster when you’re having fun, so I fully expect it to be summer again very soon!
