Estoril Blue M235i Gets Transformed - BBS and M Performance Parts

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I sold my E92 M3 with the idea of getting something a bit more practical and the M235i was the perfect choice. I picked her up in late April and I promised myself that I would keep this car stock... but the mod bug hit. Last month I reached out to Kevin at EAS to start ordering some goodies.

I couldn't be happier with the result. I'll share some feedback on the suspension (which is fantastic!) and the other goodies soon. For now, here's some car porn courtesy of EAS.

Modifications:
BBS CH-R Matte Titanium Wheel Set
BMW M Performance Carbon Fiber Trunk Spoiler
BMW M Performance Gloss Black Kidney Grilles
BMW M Performance Rear Diffuser (Painted)
BMW M Performance Stainless Steel Exhaust Tips
iND Painted Front Reflectors
Light Weight Front Lip Spoiler
Macht Schnell Competition Wheel Spacers (10mm Front)
ST Suspensions SpeedTech Coilovers

Nice! was thinking about CHs look great ! I am curious about how you handled the EDC with your STs, did you do the KW error canceling modules? in between coils and springs for this reason!

I haven't heard of the Light Weight front lip. Where did you get it? Does the lip just attach to the stock front end?

Looks awesome ! Great work !

My favs: CF rear spoiler and the kidney grilles

Pardon my noobness, but what changed in the interior (last pic) ?\

Also, if I may ask, how much did you pay for parts + labor, total ? How much cheaper was it than asking your dealer to install them ?

Thanks for all the compliments! To answer some of the questions:

Wheel specs: front 18x8 et 40. Rear 18x9 et 44. I reused the stock tires. The 10mm spacers in the front are perfect with stock rubber. I could probably go 255 in the rear when they need replacing.

In regards to the suspension as of now you will need the KW delete modules however I believe the guys at EAS are working on coding solution.

Ride quality on the coils is perfect for the street. The body roll is greatly reduced but the ride is extremely compliant. No issues over bumps and no odd noises over bumps. I am taking turns with a lot more confidence. The "floaty" feel of the stock suspensions is gone. For any concerned about coils being to stiff the guys at KW did a great job at dialing these in.

I ordered the Lightweight lip from lightweight in Germany. I plan on removing the sticker but kept it on for the photos. Marc at lightweight is awesome to deal with and the lip arrived surprisingly fast. It drills into the bottom side of the bumper and everything you need is included. It's so simple yet very effective.

No mods to the interior though the MP bits are tempting. Just thought it was a great shot of the CR interior to share.

I was planning on getting the side skirts (painted gloss black) but BMW discontinued them very recently : hopefully they will be available again soon. I'm also planning to getting Challenge SS brake lines in the near future.

Please reach out to Kevin at EAS for pricing. In most cases dealers tend to be more expensive however I chose EAS because I trust their work.

Wow, right up the alley (and beyond) of what I'm planning for my EB, even the wheels. Your pics make me warm and fuzzy inside.

I've been off and on about the front splitter because most are left black or just the splitter is painted. I think matching the side intakes and leaving the splitter black looks fantastic!
