When I had a 07 335i it looked this way as well. On my 09 135i it doesnt. Not sure why. Never used e85 on the 07, so I don't think that has anything to do with it.09 135i. Auto. BMS intake. CPE catless downpipes. HPF intercooler. BMS ww meth kit. BMS JB4/G5.

Interesting. Was it flakey or just a light dusting causing the coloring? Did it look like the "rust" was actually penetrating the metal in any way?2010 E90 335i xDrive
