That's the internet and you should know how it works.
ScreaM's comment was probably a bit harsh and not in the overall spirit of the thread, but just be aware that there have been plenty of posts on this board criticizing 335i owners for spending lots of money customizing their cars--"Instead of dumping all of that $ in your 335, you should have just bought an M3 instead." Anyone saying that customizing a 335 instead of buying an M3 is silly and wasteful, then turning around and saying customizing an M3 instead of buying a Porsche or Ferrari or Lambo is not wasteful, is just being hypocritical. Can't have it both ways.

Powerbeast and iND, looking forward to seeing the finished product.

At the track or at any meet I appreciate the 458, the GT3, and Lambo... I'll check it out and take photos, but I'll talk to the guy with the modded golf, civic, or GT-R.
Wow couldn't agree more.

First things First - Felix you are a boss, there are very few enthusiasts on here that can truly appreciate the time/work put into your car. Not to mention the flawless selection of parts chosen to use on the car. Only other dude that I can safely say is as crazy as you is Darren.

I really do appreciate the work people put into their cars, because that's what enthusiasts do! Like many others posted, the Journey is the best part. Being excited for a new part to be installed is awesome!

Some people just don't get - which is fine. Those who do will understand the method to this madness!

Cant wait for the finished results!
