BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-1 As we said in our Best Mods for BMW F30 3-Series guide, the best way to start modding any 3-series is with a set of F30 wheels and lowering your F30 suspension. Thats exactly why Chris Miller with his black F30 BMW 335i came in the other day to do just that – he reached out to Mod Expert Blake,  and the combo they came up with turned out pretty great.BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-2

When it came to choosing the right wheels for BMW F30, our Mod Experts recommended a set of HRE Flow Form FF01 Wheels in a 19in fitment , finished in Tarmac Black. HRE Performance Wheels has long been known for their outstanding quality and cutting edge styling, and their new HRE Flow Form line brings their amazing wheels within the budget of your average enthusiast.BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-3 Of course, when installing a nice set of wheels, it just wouldn’t do to leave all that unsightly wheelgap, so lowering the BMW F30 335i suspension was a must. To get the drop we needed, we installed a set of H&R Sport Springs for BMW F30 335i, which drops the car 1.75in up front and 1.6in at the rear.BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-4 Here’s how the H&R Springs look as a part of the rear suspension.BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-5 The H&R Sport Springs for BMW F30 335i enhance the precision of the F30’s handling considerably, resulting in a much sharper feeling car.BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-6

The ride seems to be pretty well balanced on the H&Rs, with just enough wheelgap to prevent rubbing, and more-or-less level front to rear.BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-9

The HRE FF01s in Tarmac pair brilliantly with the other invisible gloss black elements that make this car so clean.BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-11

Up close, you can see this F30’s exterior boasts a set of Gloss Black BMW Performance Kidney Grilles for BMW F30 and a set of painted front reflectors for BMW F30.BMW_F30_HR_Springs_HRE_FF01_Black-12

All in all, this F30 BMW 335i pulls off the blacked out look in the classiest way imaginable without going overboard like the “murdered out” look tends to do.
