    Look at what I did to my car before I went to Trinidad!

    Well I been collecting mods since I bought my car new in 2008. I would always buy a mod and then read something from Mr. 5 and then delay the install of it because of one
    of his reviews, then I would wait until I have the money to buy the mod but then
    there would be another mod that is connected to that mod, and it kept like that
    until the second week of May.

    That is when Dzenno and mike@N54tuning kept bugging me to stop collecting and start installing.

    So Dzenno told me about a very, very good and honest mechanic that has his own shop Ivo @ Columbus Automotive in Mississauga, OntClick here to enlarge

    Anyways to make a long story short he installed everything at a price I could not refuse!Click here to enlarge

    So this is what I had installed:

    HKS BOV and black charge pipe- former e90post member
    AFE Duel cone intake- former e90post member
    Hotchkis Sport Under Chassis Brace- former e90post member
    6 OEM plugs- former e90post member
    AR oil-cooler- GB mike@N54tuning
    AR oil catch can- GB mike@N54tuning
    Wavetrac LSD- mike@N54tuning
    AR Catless Downpipes ceramic coated- former e90post member
    UCC SSK & DSSR Canadian e90post member
    Helix Inter-cooler - from a former N54tech forum member
    Vanguard exhaust system ver1- e90post member
    D2 coilovers- from a former N54tech forum member
    Adjustable endlinks- form HP Autowerks (Harold)
    Used rear stock diff off a 2007 335i with 3000km- wrecking yard.
    M3 rear bushing set- e90post member

    From Patrick Casey @ http://www.bmwpartssource.com/ :

    M3 Front Control Arm/Tension Strut Set
    M3 aluminum rear guide rods
    M3 rear aluminum wishbone
    M3 Rear lower camber link
    M3 Front sway bar
    M3 Rear sway bar
    M3 RUBBER MOUNTING FRONT
    M3 RUBBER MOUNTING REAR
    M3 Left Wishbone link
    M3 Right Wishbone link
    M3 Left Tension link
    M3 Right Tension link
    M3 Cross-brace

    He installed everything at the same time, so I didn't have my car for a week and when I got it back I had to go off to Trinidad. So I really could not tell you how it road yet, but since I have came back, all I could say about these mods is "everything that was said in the forums is ture!"

    They transformed my car is was like drive a new and better BMW, once he set up the suspension she responses allot quicker, the handling is amazing, the sound of the exhaust is wicked " everyone looks at me and ask what I got under that BMW.Click here to enlarge Ifeel like a teenager again, working on my buddy's old 5.0L Mustang!

    The LSD is f@$king A, now I lease two equal black marks behind, and the car just shoots off like a bullet!

    And that UCC SSK it think everyone should do this mod, it feels great!!!

    Anyway I did not get to put her on the track because I missed the frist track day we had for the spring because I was in Trinidad, but the next one is in July and I am going to try to make it to that so I update this when I do.

    Ivo did a kick ass job on my car, he does know his stuff, I would invite everyone to give him a shout.

    Fortunately he is a better mechanic then a photographer so here are some picks of the install.

    Have you driven a m3? If so, does your suspension bits you installed make the 335 close to a m? I test drove a m3 today and I must say, it handled incredible compared to my car. That is really what stuck out for me about the M. I wasn't sold on the rest of it, but man was that handling sick!!

    Nice mod list!

    I drove my friend's E46 M3 and I think my car now handles better then his IMHO, but I did not get a chance to drive the E92 model because the dealer I bought my car from did not have them as demos.

    Yes I hear from people like yourself about the E9X's handling is great but I can't say if mine is close to it.

    I'm interested in this also. If you find out how much it is for all those parts, please let us know. Really interested to know how to 335i handles compared to the M3 after all those M3 suspension bits. The feeling of it that is.

    $1k? That's a lot less than I thought it would be. Labor looks expensive though....

    all said and done, it will run you about $2000 from Tischer for all the links including the lower rear M3 ones and the bushings. Not to mention you now have to use M3 rear shocks because the factory ones are different.

    That is not including labor..which will run you around another $6-800 bucks, depending who you are Click here to enlarge

    If you wanted to do all the M3 bits without the arms it would cost you around $1600 or so.


    Sgt Jeeps car put together a bill that was north of $10k with me...and we havent touched on coilovers or the rear lower links yet. However the 'legs' from the Unsuspecting E93 (R.I.P.) will be finding their way onto his car, provided Harold can somehow get one Koni Double Adjustable shock for me.
