Can you post pictures of your interior? This is basically what I have in mind for my car so it's cool to see someone who actually is running it right now.

Hey, man. What's your IG?
Thank you, appreciate it!
I only had to wait about a week or two max for my kit. Maybe if it was faster cause I had it installed at ACF as well.

Oh! It's you! What made you move on from the M235?
The N54 power is so different compared to the N55, I hope you enjoy it.
You're in SoCal, right?

Ready for a change and I think I had just about hit the limit of my particular N55 set up. I definitely love the new car , stock for stock I feel the 335is is superior to an M235i.

The M235i just feels super soft and floaty while the 335is feels tighter, more engaging and IMO looks better out of the box.

Yup, I'm in Temecula.
