Things are frozen over back in New York, so this BMW E90 335xi has made a break for the sunshine of the West Coast. Rolling on Avant Garde M510 wheels for BMW, this xi came in to get lowered with a set of KW Suspensions V1 Coilovers for E90. Finding coilovers that fit an AWD “xi” or “xDrive” E90 is tricky, as the fronts call for something totally different than its RWD counterparts, but fortunately the Mod Experts are here to help with the correct parts for “special” applications like AWD xi models.


A performance style Carbon Fiber Trunk Spoiler for BMW E90 dresses up the rear end and provides a little bit of visual balance relative to the front of the car.Avant_Garde_Wheels_M510_19x85_19x95_KW_v1_coilovers_black_bmw_e90_335xi_img-4 Avant_Garde_Wheels_M510_19x85_19x95_KW_v1_coilovers_black_bmw_e90_335xi_img-5

With the OEM BMW E90 Suspension removed and the KW V1 Coilovers installed, the sedan drops between 1.2-2.3 inches in the front and the rear drops between .9 and 2.1 inches, allowing you to go conservative or aggressive with your choice of ride height.

From behind the front grille, an aftermarket Front Mount Intercooler peeks through, but it’s a model we don’t recognize.

A pair of Painted Front Reflectors for BMW E90 lends to a clean looking front end.



Spec’d at 19×8.5 / 19×9.5 wrapped in Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 tires (235/35-19 / 265/30-19), this xDrive is going to be surefooted in any weather.
