Default KhanArt's Black Sapphire///Coral Red F30 335i M Sport Journal

Hey guys about a week ago I picked up a pretty clean Black Sapphire on Coral Red F30 335i M Sport fully loaded with the premium, technology, cold weather, and M Sport packages. This is going to be the daily for my wife.

Car was pretty much everything I was looking for. She wanted a Xdrive but I preferred the rwd so it worked out better for me It had to be a M Sport and the interior had to be something that popped other than black.

The car is stock other than IND black front grilles, saved me from having to do that later. Only the rear window is tinted. I plan to finish tinting the remaining windows but not too dark. It also has the M performance/sport front lip.

Mod wise besides getting the windows tinted I will be having Frank Smith tune the car of course. Later in the future I plan on getting F80 M3 18 inch wheels and possibly a M performance exhaust. I may also possibly do the IND front are rear painted reflectors. That will be it for the mods... I think.

The car needs a paint correction as it seems the PO took the car to machine washes. I also will need to change the oil and filters since I start fresh on maintenance on all my cars.

I've been extremely busy but hope to get her tinted, tuned, and some maintenance plus paint correction done as soon as I get a chance. This won't be that exciting of a journal but I like to document everything. Below are some cell phone shots of the car. Better pictures will come when I have a chance too.

Thanks!





The interior might be my most favorite part of the car







Dat Recaro car seat for the baby tho






First mods ///M starter kit It's a M but not really (M keychain, valve stem caps, and plate frame)

Performing surgery on the ECU, hope all goes well.

Update: 3/12/16 ECU Tuned by Frank Smith

So here is the graph from the tuning performed by Frank. I am very happy with the results. The car is silly fast, this is my first turbo and it sure is another animal. The whp is similar to my M3 but the torque is what makes the difference, it just keeps pulling.






I am getting the windows tinted today, only the rear window is tinted currently. I am trying not to go too dark. Not my cup of tea.

Next up after that will probably be oil and air filter change.

Not much more planned for the car, I am not trying to get carried away:

Wheel spacers front and rear
Paint matched reflectors front and rear possibly?
Lowering springs possibly?
M Performance exhaust possibly?
F80 M3 18 inch wheels in the future

That's impressive Z, especially given the fact that it's stock.

Update: 3/16/16 Window Tint and Paint Correction

Some more updates on the F30 335i M Sport. Had the windows tinted 35% all around, not too dark. Also did a single step paint correction. I was able to do the entire car in half a day. The new Rupes BigFoot 21 Mark II drastically cuts correcting time compared to my previous DA.

One cell phone shot for now until I take proper pictures. I still haven't taken any decent pictures of the car. Hopefully can take some soon showing the interior, tint, and paint.

Up next is a oil change and air filter if needed. Also wheel spacers to continue with the OEM plus look.
